I took delivery of a new tiny compy on Monday. It's a barebones kit for use as an HTPC. It requires you to install RAM and a HDD. Last night, after walking through the freezing cold wind and rain to buy said hardware, I began the setup. It was then that I discovered that I don't actually own a USB keyboard, just a USB mouse. It's very hard to install an operating system without a keyboard, y'know. Very hard... but not impossible! By cutting and pasting individual letters using the mouse from some text files I found, I laboriously claimed victory.

I gave up when I saw what I'd need to do to install XBMC.

That is still an achievement!

I'm going to steal an old keyboard from work for the time being. Yay for thievery!
