What do you do when your USB hub fails? The answer would seem to be “not a lot”. It broke when I was in a hurry to get a few things done before we went out. I got very cross with Apple, Microsoft, finally, myself, when I realised that the reason that my keyboard and mouse were dead wasn’t laptop or Windows 7 failure, but actually the “bargain” USB hub that I bought a couple of years ago.
There is probably a lesson in here for me, but I’m too daft to see what it is.
