Beware The Caps Lock Key . . .

Jan and I had a nice quite day at the rig, not doing much of anything. Very nice.

About 4pm we headed over to Dickinson to have dinner once again at Los Ramirez Mexican Restaurant. And I think we’re just about at the point where we can just sit down and say, “The Usual”, since we always get the same thing.

Jan gets her Pechuga Rellana,

but without the rice.

So that leaves her with Shrimp, and Broccoli. covered with a large Chicken Breast topped with Melted Cheese. And it’s not just a few shrimp hiding out under there, but an entire school.

I of course got my usual Beef Fajita Taco Salad.

For some reason though they look at me funny since I don’t eat the taco shell, jus the good stuff inside. I think the shell has about as many calories in it as all the goodies inside.

Then after dinner we drove over to Nassau Bay to check in on a friend of ours who was having printer problems. And of course as it often happens, it all worked fine while I was there.

This has happened often enough over the years that I’ve often thought about having some of those life-size cut-outs made of me, glaring. Then I can rent them out to clients to stand next to their computer so I can intimidate it into correct operation.

Three times in the last few weeks I’ve had client’s called me with login problems. And in two of the three cases it was because they had accidentally pressed the Cap Lock key without realizing it. So they were typing in their password incorrectly without knowing it.

This is why I really don’t like password fields that don’t allow you to either show the password, or at least have the Eyeball in the field so you can double-check it.

In the third case they had a flakey key on their keyboard which they didn’t notice. If you ever suddenly have a problem logging into something, go to Notepad or some other text editor to be sure that what you think you’re typing is what you’re actually typing.

Thought For The Day:

If we’re not supposed to eat late at night, why is there a little light inside the fridge?
