Story time:

My horse went down with me ....not his fault, stepped on invisible rock in loose berm (road edge). It hurt. Felt like toes touched knee cap.
Several days later V insisted I get it x-rayed. Crush, strain , sprain only. (no breakage)
The nice Doctor said if I started to pee blood to get in touch. Pee blood says I. When you fell off the horse says he.
"I didn't fall off, I waited for him to get up". Dr. did the jaw drop thing and walked away shaking his head.

True. :)

Good story. I am guessing that was not your first time on a horse.

Not exactly. That horse and I had 22 years together.

Jeep (the horse) was embarrassed and didn't give me time to fall off.

Kodeniner, Do ya need a rubber BLKB for one of your CF-19s? There....back on topic. :D

Haha! Saddle got loose and I fell ass over teakettle in the woods. I was just glad I didn't get trampled.

I seriously could use a rubber keyboard for a CF-19 so I could have one "heavy duty" unit when I need it. PM me and I'll see what I can give you in exchange.

After equal amounts of procrastination and trepidation, I finally installed a rubber keyboard in one of my CF-19's since I did not want to bog down my CF-30 which I use daily. I tested myself on the previously-mentioned website

I have gone from 112 words per minute on the emissive chiclet down to 48. Now mind you that my 112 wpm was done on the CF-30 which is easier to type on than the 19 and I have a few scotches down the 'ole gullet. It was a chore, and I'm thinking of getting an additional CF-30 (or save some dosh for a 31) to install my other rubber keyboard and use it in more extreme situations.

Then again, this little CF-19 can be my extreme situational device. I just despise its battery life when I'm in the wilderness which forces me to lug additional batteries. So there you have it, a 58% decrease in typing performance. :D
