computers are a pain…

Computers are a major hassle for us creative types. I’ve spent the last 48 hours or so doing a re-install of the operating system, a bunch of software, and on another computer making lots of backups of some dvds and cds with lots of creative works, both 3-dimensional and 2-dimensional from about the last 10 years!… electronic forms of communication are cool, but it’s awful that you can loose it all in the blink of an eye if any hardware goes bad. Backups are something you need to do, but they can be a major hassle that takes hours to do the more stuff you get over the years. Back is hurting from sitting here so long. Neck and shoulders are too since computer is not really at an ergonomic height for keyboard and mouse…

Does anyone know if a cheap midi-usb adapter works in making a music keyboard work with a computer that has no pci slots? Thinking about getting back in to doing a few musical things and having the power to do both midi as well as audio files would be helpful.
