Well… That was fun.
What are the odds that I would fry my keyboard after six years, and then test the computer with a defective one? If I had only tested a third keyboard, I would not have saved myself a lot of trouble. The third "new" aluminum keyboard that I borrowed from my job, works perfectly.
Tomorrow I buy a new keyboard.
Mark, the guy I talked to at the Apple Help Line (or whatever), was really helpful. Everything he suggested, I had already done. Made me feel smart. He was great, and I wish I could thank him for a great job.
Thank you, everybody, for the help. I learned more thru MC, MM, MT, AC than I have on my own. Ya know, I actually cleaned out the fuzz bunnies from inside my computer. I couldn't have done it without you.
Time to get back to bad jokes and witty witticisms.

I am convinced all my periphial problems are being caused by my "top of the line, Staples 7 port USB hub". External hard drives disconnecting at will, Wacom tablet goes dead, and yes, even the new keyboard dies. This thing is the cheapest piece of plastic #%$$@#!%@$##! I've ever bought, but I figured after all these years, any USB hub should be able to do it's job. I guess I was wrong.
