    In 1993, sometime in December, a customer walks in with a dead PowerBook.
    Fault description: hangs on startup. An additional symptom provided was: whilst being carried from the customer's site to our service center, a 'sloshing' noise was heard within the machine.
    "Has anything been split on this computer?" I inquired, but no, nothing of the sort had happened, protested the client vehemently. Taking this with a grain of salt (no one's going to admit doing something that totally invalidates their warranty and effectively wrecks their computer) I went about filling in the repair order.
    Back on the bench, I started the PowerBook up. Sure enough, an address error on startup, just after 'Welcome to Macintosh'. I lowered my ear to the keyboard, at which point I heard a crackling noise (couldn't hear any sloshing noise though) and became aware of a rather 'sharp' odor which seemed to emanate from the inside of the machine.
    Flicking the computer off and unplugging more...

    Q. My shift keys have little arrows on them. Does that mean the *real* shift keys are located above them, and these keys are just little signs to point them out?
    A. Nope, they're the Real McCoy. The little arrows mean "up", as in "look up at the screen". Your keyboard is telling you to learn to touch type and quit staring at your fingers.
    Q. What happens if I press both shift keys?
    A. Even bigger letters may show up on your screen. You should not use this feature, however, because these letters are also brighter, and may cause Screen Burn-In, which would be particularly embarrassing if you were typing something naughty at the time. You might consider obtaining the author's Shift Key Burn-In Protector program for only $
    139.
    95. Or you might not, it's your computer, but don't say I didn't warn you.
    Q. my religion prohibits the use of shift keys. how can i type capital letters and punctuation
    A. Discuss alternatives to the shift key with more...

    'Twas the night before Christmas and all through the nets,
    Not a mousie was stirring, not even the pets.
    The floppies were stacked by the modem with care,
    In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there.
    The files were nestled all snug in a folder,
    The screen-saver turned on, the weather was colder.
    And leaving the keyboard along with my mouse,
    I turned from the screen to the rest of the house.
    When up from the drive there arose such a clatter,
    I turned to the screen to see what was the matter.
    Away to the mouse I flew like a flash,
    Zoomed open a window in fear of a crash...
    The glow from the screen on the keyboard below,
    Gave an electronic luster to all my macros.
    When what to my wondering eyes should appear,
    But a little sleigh icon with eight tiny reindeer.
    And a tiny disk driver so SCSI and quick,
    I knew in a nano it must be Saint Nick.
    More rapid than trackballs his cursors they came,
    He more...
