Reggie may have chilled out a little, but he’s still a bit touchy about being slighted…
When I upgraded my Surface I bought the best type cover that was made specifically for it. I foolishly assumed that Microsoft would set them all up to work properly since they are tailor made for them. Unfortunately that is not the case. It has never worked right and no one can help me fix it. Microsoft’s answer after trying to download the same drivers over and over is to do a clean install of the OS and hope for the best, which seems really stupid to me. With my old surface I got a technician to help me who fixed the problem in two steps and it stayed fixed. In fact, the old type cover is the only one that works exactly right, which is the one I’ve been using. The problem is it’s falling apart after nearly ten years.
The other night I decided to see if I could get microsoft to sell me one of the version that I wanted, unfortunately they printed the model number in black ink on black paint, so I can’t read it. So I spend half an hour talking to a store assistant hoping they can find the version I want. LSS they cant. The oldest version they still have is not right & they want 150$ for it. Which is ridiculous.
Anyway, I decide to go to ebay and search type covers until I can visually identify the kind I want AND get the model number. It takes a little while but I do eventually find one that looks exactly like my old one. It’s in nice shape so I decide to just buy it from ebay since it’s not in any store right now. Tomorrow it should arrive & if it doesn’t work I’ll be heartbroken. If it does work I may buy a spare. Either way it cost me 50$ so I need to get 50 of you to sign up to Patreon for a dollar. Actually make that 100. I think I only get 53 cents on the dollar… Anyway, I need to step up the Patreon shilling. This is me doing that. *Jazz hands!*
