Caps Lock – when was the last time you used it?

6 09 2006

If there were an initial struggle between the Caps Lock key and the Shift key….the Shift key definitely won.  When truly was the last time you used the caps lock key….and that being on purpose.  If we were to rate one of the worlds worst inventions….I would probably rate the Caps Lock key as being up there.

This post was inspired by the 6 times today that I’ve been inadvertently hitting it.

Um..caps lock is useful when making banners or signs or title pages (especially for grade school reports) and you want the text to be clearly visible.

Suchit, I am disappointed in your tech skillz. Questioning the caps lock key. Tsk tsk.

THE CAPS LOCK KEY IS REALLY GOOD FOR ANNOYING PEOPLE WHO HATE IT WHEN PEOPLE OVERUSE IT… SO THAT IT LOSES ITS EFFECT FOR EMPHASIS OR YELLING…KINDA LIKE THIS…AND DON’T EVEN GET ME STARTED ON ELLIPSES…

Certainly one of the lesser keys on the keyboard, but what about pause/break? or that menu key on the windows keyboard? Or insert?
