I hack my way through another Ubuntu 8.04 fix

"I've had a few "issues" now in Ubuntu 8.04 LTS on the Toshiba (1.3 GHz Celeron / 768 MB RAM). Here are the problems and their solutions.

"Remember: I'm no coder, so unless the solutions are relatively quick and easy, I probably won't do 'em.

"Problem: Every once in awhile, the keyboard stops working in mid-session.

"Solution: This could be a hardware issue, or it could be something in Ubuntu. This doesn't happen all that often, but when it does, killing X with ctrl-alt-backspace brings back the keyboard. I consider this a less-than-optimal solution, but a solution nonetheless. I'll be keeping an eye on the issue."
