Why do USB plugs never ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, (recurring) fit the socket when you try and push them in?  Banghead

Then you turn them over ‘cos they must be upside down and they still don’t fit so you turn them back up the way they were originally then they fit!  cussing:


Happens to me too! Why is that?
It's just a wanky design!  cussing:

Yes, yes. Of course. ::)
Nick can't do it either!  point:

Hang on Barman, you are using Captain Calamity as an excuse for your own cack handedness, claiming that it is a design flaw?

Have you been sampling the homebrew before it's ready again?
Can you do it then?  whistle:

Get a USB to work? every time I'm afraid old chap.  whistle:

If you are having problems then get a USB extension cable and run it to the side of your keyboard. This way you should find it easier to work out which way its supposed to be inserted   happy088

Some days I think the only thing keeping me from becoming homicidal is that the voices can't agree on which weapon would be the most fun.
