keyboard requires AC power connection...

So if you only get 2 AC power ports, what about power for people who have powered keyboards? Any ideas?

I responded to a ticket just a bit ago, not sure it was yours.  Your options would be along the lines of:
 - get another keyboard or if possible not use whatever feature of your keyboard that requires power (I'm assuming this is maybe an LCD readout, or something such as that)
 - try to work it out with others around you that might not be using all their ports (bought multiple seats, laptop users, etc.)
 - buy a secondary seat

Hopefully all works out for you.  Please do not daisy chain off of the power strips as that is a fire hazard and you will be asked to leave.

I've attended Quakecon in Dallas, TX several year, and they do allow a 3 way splitter for these types of items. It's not a power strip, so it's just allowing a little more access to the power without opening up too many plugs.
Maybe an electrician could spell out why this is prefered over daisy chaining another power strip.

ultimately you're putting more load on the outlet than possibly intended, but it is typically less of an issue compared to a daisy chain.  You really need to check with the on-site staff for your respective LAN.  I'm not positive, but this may be against OSHA standards, so that could play a factor as well.

I always use my laptop to prepare my assignment and from the last few days, it is making issues and not working properly. I handed over it to my friend to do my assignment for Assignment Help and it is not working like before. I suspect that there is a virus which attacked after he used USB in it. Can anyone assist me in finding the problem and its solution?
