Talking with Justin Pawela after seeing a warning flash past his screen too fast to read
Justin : My computer back at home had a problem where it would flash an
error on the screen and immediately reboot. It was too fast to read, so I kept
trying to take pictures of it using a digital camera. Eventually I had enough
pictures that I could piece together what the error was.
Me : I remember that an old DOS program used to throw an error at me and immediately exit. I would sit there waiting with my finger on the Pause key, and when the error appeared I'd be like DOITNOW! It took forever to time it just right.
Justin : Does ScrollLock even do anything?
Me : Nothing under DOS or Windows, but it works on Linux. See, Linux gives you back a key on your keyboard. If you're using Windows, you might as well rip the key out of the keyboard because Windows stole its functionality away from you.
Justin : Yeah, but it gave me three more! places his fingers on the Windows and Properties keys See? strokes one of the keys Oh yeah. They're even good to the touch.
