Random Thoughts: Scroll Lock, Reset, and Batman

Posted on July 25, 2014 9:00 am

So has any anthropologist been able to uncover what the Scroll Lock was ever used for?

When Hillary hit the reset button on Russia, did she check when we last saved?

You can look at a life sentence as a really really really long execution.

Why don’t we just ask the people on death row for good ways to kill people? They all have experience at it.

They should make Batman a woman. Not Batwoman — still called Batman but now a woman.

GOTHAM GAZETTE: “Batman now a woman! In unrelated news, billionaire playboy Bruce Wayne now a woman but still called Bruce Wayne.”

Sometimes it’s hard to tell if you’re being progressive or an idiot.

There are mean people on the internet! With this vast repository of knowledge at our fingertips, you’d think we’d all be happy all the time.

    [Note to Self: Try to come up with a really good joke about Dead Sea scroll locks.]

    1) You wrote “or” instead of “and”
    2) It’s not hard to tell: you are.

    @1: See, the Dead Sea used to scroll on by a lot. So they put locks in it so the ship’s could move freely and not have to worry about the altitude change. :oops:

    Scroll lock was invented right after the Matrix. It allowed you to pause all those symbols scrolling down the screen.

    I used Scroll Lock back on the DOS version of Lotus 123 to move the view of the spreadsheet around with the arrow keys. But that was in the ’80s. The key was there before Lotus 123 came to be. Sorry.

    Scroll Lock – the key you hit 1/4 second after hitting “enter” after typing “dir”

    “C – c – catwoman fight!”

    “Scroll Lock” does not ever both me, but I physically remove the “Insert” key from whatever keyboard I am using. That key must die!

  9. Harvey says:

    @8 silaS marreD – Amen, brother. I pop that stupid thing off, too.

    Am I the only one left who knows what the Scroll Lock key is for?

    In days of yore, or so we’re told, CPUs did text dumps to screens of green; yea, verily, this text could be several kilobytes worth. Happily, the scroll lock kept such from passing away invisibly before your eyes like the child’s animation zooming once across the screen, never pausing to be seen by mortal eyes.

    Aquaman would be better as a woman….’cause wet T-shirts.

    She also now makes 27% less money.

    Can you remember the last time you actually used the Print Screen key? Or Caps Lock, or Insert, or, Pause Break? Hell, does anyone even know what Pause Break does? Chances are, you have a number of keys you’ve never even touched. Instead of letting them collect dust, why not do something awesome with them? Here’s a simple way to assign common, useful actions to those unused keys, like putting your computer to sleep, showing hidden files, or ejecting a flash drive.

    The ads along the edge of the screen must be psychic!
    Right now the ad is showing a hot babe wearing a batman suit!

    Oops, now it’s gone.
    Never mind!
