So...what's the difference between the num lock and the scroll lock? It sounds to me like they do the same thing.
Also, why do keyboards still have Caps Lock? I as taught in second grade not to use caps lock, as it was the incorrect way to insert capital letters. If that's true, then why haven't we gotten rid of it? Especially now, when (what I assume are) "hunt & peck" types forget to "turn off" the caps lock (and thus make the rest of us more savvy typists assume the person is an idiot. I figure they aren't. Just not tech savvy, and on the 'net, that makes you seem like an idiot to those of us who use our computer daily).
Also: What's the politest way for me to tell my friends who are new to email *not* to send out forwards? My preferred method is usually just send it right back, but there are some people I actually *like* and I don't want to hurt their feelings (or spam them back, as the case may be).
