Invisible touch-typing

This is the kind of thing that would drive me nuts until the solution was found, and would continue to bother me afterwards:

    I’ve had wireless keyboards. It never would have occurred to me to throw it in a closet with the batteries still in it.

    It did take me a while to notice the dongle was still plugged in.

    The last time I worked in an office, I got wireless keyboards because I worked with a lot of different machines, and it was easier to tuck they keyboards under the desk than to litter the desk with keyboards or to monkey with chaining KVM switches.

    So people in the office thought that looked cool, and everyone wanted wireless keyboards.

    One day, the project manager in the next cubicle freaked out because her computer was flipping through windows at seeming random.

    It turns out our wireless connections synched somehow, and when I was ALT+TABbing on my keyboard, it was changing windows on her machine, too.

    One of the many, many ways I tormented the poor project managers at that job. This time inadvertently.
