Stupid things that they pre-programmed into the damn computer.....

Sometimes it's the little things about computing, or maybe just Microsoft, that amazes me. Sticky keys that are a source of continual amusement to some children. That stupid thing where you can rotate the screen 90 degrees completely by accident if you happen to press some combination of keys in order (which is surprisingly easy when you're 5).

And then tonight, when my keyboard suddenly decided to give @ instead of ". A little google later and it turns out that the damn thing's designed to do that whenever the ALT and the SHIFT key are pressed together. And what are the odds of that eh?

Stupid, stupid, stupid computers.
