A bug ate my homework ... er AQMail!

No kidding! *back story warning - ADD people might want to skip ahead - oh you already did?* My HDD died on my sweet little Sony, so while I was there to buy a new HDD I got sucked in by the ohhhit'snewandshiney thing and played with the touch screen desktop. I was only looking at it, honest!

So I have it home right. Stop laughing. It's fun and interesting and you should really play with one to understand. Ok? OK?

So I have it home and I'm typing this long AQmail to someone this morning and that's not easy cause I type faster than the wireless keyboard can send the info or some other issue like it munches batteries too fast or whatever.

Suddenly, out of nowhere text is being highlighted@!! What!! Then it's erased!!

I'm checking the mouse and every time I move it the pointer to one place it jumps somewhere else and DELETES my text!! Arghhhh! "Stop, I liked the way I wrote that part!" I say to the screen. It does not listen. More text is highlighted and then erased. Finally the web page goes back to My Page and then to Google. WHAT IS THIS????

Then it hits me. Like the 50 lb overgrown tablet PC that it is..... touch screen. Sure enough, there's the little lacewing, flitting it's way to the destruction of my seriously tough to type stuff.

*raising hand* "No Mr. Carpenter, I don't have my AQ Mail done, a bug ate it."

That's a good one. I'll have to share that with the wife. (But not the kids..)

Wouldn't that just blow a teacher's mind?
