lol, amen to that Mike. :)


I like my NumLock and MS' F-Lock keys off.

I can see the point of NumLock off - then you can use that keypad as up/down/left/right arrows, no? I'm not much of a computer gamer, but I remember back in the 90s there were plenty games where you would control your character using those keys. I believe in Civilization you'd move around on the board that way, no?

Anyway, I agree that F-Lock is evil. I never, ever, ever, ever want it on. Yet sometimes I find that toggling between Virtual Machines, it comes on mysteriously. And my hand isn't anywhere near the keyboard. Meh.
