Now if this dont take the cake nothing does. You know computers give funny errors sometimes but give this a whirl

The next time you go to boot up windows, unplug your keyboard.

You will get an error message stating that the keyboard is not detected.

Then it says "Press any key to continue”

Funny you should ask about the 'any' key. My wife asked me where the space key was, when she first started using the computer. She could not find it because it was not labeled. I made a sticky label and applied to the key.

I thought she was actually kidding, until I seen her E-mail message. It went something like this.

Oh my gosh that is so cute. Hey we were all there at one time. :thumbsup: How I survived without knowing how to copy and paste I'll never know. :trumpet: :flowers:

And as far as MS is concerned, they can quit with the jokes and get with the program. Computing is confusing enough at times, as it is.

I have to admit, she figures out things that amaze me though.

When I came home from work a couple of weeks ago, I hear the music from I-Tunes playing. On most computers, it is not that hard to start up-just click the icon, pick a song, and it plays. On my computer, I-Tunes opens up on its own monitor. She not only figured that out (by the way, I was under the impression that she HATED dual screens), but also clicked the folder for her songs, and was playing them. Even though it is rare that she sees what I am doing on the computer, she was doing nearly the same identical thing that I do: listen to I-Tunes from one screen, while surfing the net with the other!!! :thumbsup:

I looked at her and wondered who she was. Last week, she looked at me wondering who I was, when I cut 18" of hair off :flowers:
