I'm sure that someone mentioned the original lack of an apostrophe in this thread's title way, way back. Do ya think I can find that post now? No. How annoying! laughing

The useless, praehistoric CAPS LOCK key.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Caps Lock key: meet screw driver. Problem solved.

 



Mac OS allows you to simply disable it..Does Windows?

 

It can easily be reprogrammed to do nothing or imitate any other key. For those afraid of the Registry, there are simple utilities for this. A quick Google search will bring up several.

 

 

 

 

Sure. But the useless key stays useless at all ... like a car with 5 wheels. wink

Is the spare wheel not useful to you?

 

I certainly have found it useful.

Not at all. You can program it to a macro. Whenever you press it the lights will go out, a siren will sound, fireworks will explode, and a banner will flash on the screen 'You pressed the F***ing CapsLock  key again, you moron!'

 

Or you can just have it do Win-L and play a pleasant melody.

Maybe in rural environments. Here three wheels and one spare are physically sufficient. Or even 2 wheels plus one deflated spare tire in the backpack. :-)

 

Many People have eBikes in town going easily 45km/h (~30 mph). They're much faster in crowded urban cities than any cars, busses and even subways or commuting trains.

 

 

 

Back to topic: "People standing in front of the escalator to read the offer signs."

Google's buggy software. I logged into my Google account and went to the list of devices authorised against my account only to find my old iPhone 6 in there twice and my current 8 not there at all. I removed both 6s from the account only to find that my physical 8 was now logged out. I logged back in, and it reappeared in my account... as a 6.

 

Edit: That's not quite right; if I click through to it then it's listed as an 8 in the details, but the name that appears in the list is that of my 6 (as configured in Settings/General/About/Name on the phone itself).

People who blatantly park in cycle-ways (On the Yellow Lines as well).

 

... and they use the excuse of "Oh, I won't be long!" - as if that makes it alright!

 

It's not a P10 parking area!

 

I saw 5 today alone!

Mashable website on an iPhone.

 

Banner/button at the bottom, do you wan to read more.

 

Go to click on it, but page hasn't finished loading an advert, and when it does load it appears right where the banner button was, and now I'm opening a new page for an ad.

 

Stupid, stupid design.
