Weirdness and Follies

I am back in Boston after a long drive late last night.. My family gave me my birthday presents a few days early, which rocks! They gave me:

I’m having some trouble with the KVM switch and the Apple USB keyboard I have been using… Keys are sticky, and sometimes when I press shift it “locks” until I tap shift again…. This is particularly annoying in Vim and when typing my password… Hopefully I can figure out what the problem is soon..

    1. Dude, you don’t even know.. It’s like shrinkwrapped sex.

      It is fully programmable, you can use it to control almost anything (most notably, however, Final Cut, of course).

    1. I have an omniview soho 4 port w/ usb from belkin.
      Until recently I’ve never had a problem with the USB side of the device, until one day a few weeks ago I started experiencing _VERY_ weird behavior.

      Locally, it was fine. If i logged into and opened up a gvim window, it was fine.
      If I SSH’d into the CS machines it was fine. But, if i then opened up a gvim window,
      it would take very long to process the keystrokes. They would queue to an extent, but it was definately slow. Sometimes key-release events would get lost and the keys would get stuck on. What was even weirder was that if i type ESC: to get to the command buffer in gvim, typing was fine. If i opened an xterm that was xhosted over, it was fine. But anything pulled over such as emacs or gvim was broken.
      I switched the cables to the PS/2 and I haven’t had it do that since. Really fucking weird.
