A not so fond farewell

Notice anything missing?That's right, I've been liberated from the tyranny of that evil caps lock key. Now let me explain something here and let me warn this will be a little geeky but it will make sense to everyone in the end.

You see in the 3d program Maya the keyboard shortcuts are case sensitive, meaning that pressing ctrl+b is not the same or ctrl+B, nor is w the same as W. Switching operations like rotation, translate and scale like the w,e,r keys are rendered useless by the evil caps lock key. Each key takes on a new and evil purpose. Up is down, good is evil, chocolate is peanut butter! The caps lock key, what with it's proximity to the shift button which is used quite a bit, finds itself in a position to be accidentally struck... all the time... completely screwing things up and preventing yet another fine advertisement from reaching your television screen.

How do we end this madness? Rip the little bastard off! Thats right, I grabbed a pen and popped that little sucka outa there. Think about it, when was the last time you ever used that caps lock key? When you typed a really important IM to someone and made your point by using ALL CAPS? or perhaps you sent a really nasty email letting them know what AN ABSOLUTE IDIOT THEY ARE? or perhaps the when forwarding some retarded email to 10 people you know so that they will BE BLESSED WITH THE LUCK OF THE IRISH? Well stop it. Nobody cares and nobody likes it. Just like you caps lock key, you've made my life difficult for the last time, and frankly I'm not sure I can stay in a relationship where I just never seem to get anything back. Good bye caps lock and don't be surprised if you friend scroll lock joins you soon.
