A dodgy English sentence on USB keys


This is the best sentence I’ve written in years:

I’m amazed that for all the dozens – perhaps hundreds – of keys I’ve had over the years, I’ve only had one other one brand new one fail in this way.

This was on my recent dodgy USB key post, since fixed. Either I hadn’t had coffee yet, or too much.

Author bio and support

If you found this post helpful or entertaining, you can shout me a coffee or buy some silly merch. Thanks!
