    Stupid keyboard doesn't have an "any" key and all these programs are telling me to press it.

    No, I'm not really that stupid, but apparently some people are.

    Check out This Page from the Compaq FAQ.

    Do you believe this is really a frequently asked question?

    My faith in humanity is destroyed!

    I dunno if it's true or not but I read this on one of those tech support question pages..
    A guy calls up his PC manufacturers tech help to bitch about the flimsy cup holder they supplied with the PC. He said it broke when he placed his coffee mug upon it.

    This isn't a joke. Its not like someone saw the Simpson's episode where Homer was looking for the "any" key and put up a fake website. That is really from the Compaq FAQ page. Enough people called Compaq with that question that they had to put it on a FAQ!

    People are this stupid in real life!

    Maybe we should start up an "All Your Base"-esque cult around finding the damn any key and post pictures of programs asking you to press the "any" key.

    I think the 116 car pileup on 95 last week killed the final shreds of hope I had for this godforsaken species you call human.

    I don't know ... as long as we have humanitarians like CHRYSt around, how could you not have faith in this kooky species of ours?

    LOL. The only reason we have AOL is because we haven't set up MediaOne e-mail accounts for my mother and sister. I don't touch AOL, mainly since I have no reason to anymore.
