*points at response to other thread*
as i said on the other thread (in so many words), there's a reason it's called caps LOCK

using the caps lock key as a shift key is kinda like trying to use the parking break to stop the car.[COLOR="Silver"]

why do so many people insist on using things in ways that they aren't intended and complain that they are broken when it doesn't work that way?

I just wish my water bottle holder would work.
