How to turn your computer screen upside-down

Apparently you can do this by pressing ctrl + alt + down arrow simultaneously.

Quite WHY you'd ever want to is beyond  me,  but it's bloody scary if you do it by accident.      Shocked      Luckily I could use older computer to learn how to undo it.

But before I did, I was getting so sad about the slowness of backup computer that I actually wondered if it was worth just physically turning the monitor upside down.  Not my brightest idea, especially seeing as it is a heavy big CRT  monitor.

But you are all the right way up now, so that's fine.   Apart from Oz and New Zealand, I suppose, but you lot are special.   Laughing

Ah jist tried it. It didnae w**k. Maybe mah pooter wiz broke even afore Ah stertit.

That seems to be how it goes on Win XP - if you're using something different, well, just hope you don't find the "turn upside down" command by accident wan day.   Smile

Actually I did the same thing to my dad's spiffy laptop a while back and that was even more scary.    Right, so the way things W*** is that I have to make the same mess-up three times, then I'm free from that mess-up for a while.   Yes, it might lack logic, but mibbe I'll make it part of the new religion as proposed in the Chrimbo thread.

Thought to masel. That Celyn's a right fucking idjit....and ah'm gonny prove her a right fucking idjit.

It's obvious. You dinny need a fuckin program.

Just turn the computer upside doon you moron.

I did: and discovered the following:

Turning yer laptop upside down pulls the plug out of the internet modem....

.... It knocked off the glass of wine which wis sitting quite happily beside the computer.

... the windae of ma laptop wis drenched wi good quality chardonnay .... which dripped onto the keyboard......

The keyboard is now a ytrewq board.

The ytrewq board is fucked.

PS Yer fucking idea of "pressing ctrl + alt + down" just disny W***.

PPS I've discovered that you can get a good trade-in deal from Dell Computers if you mention the code Celynisakunt.
Celyn

Oh dear how sad.

Still, isn't it handy that Australia and you and your sad computer and empty wine glass are so far away?   Smile

Ah wouldnae speak to soon aboot him being in australia Celyn.............
Celyn

Oh shit.  Now I seem to recall some mention of Clash visiting Scotland in August.

<thinks>

I can hide.   Being a black and white panda, I can go and camouflage myself by hiding on a chessboard - I know where there is a nice big one on the ground.    Or a zebra crossing.

Ah, mibbe not the latter.  

Crying or Very sad
Neil

Fit aboot een o they fleers in a Dutch Master's paintin? A Vermeer, perhaps.
Celyn

But he was a bit colourful sometimes, wasn't he?  Tangential idea - I should just run off to the Netherlands to hide from Clash.
Neil

Or if ye canna afford the Netherlands, fit aboot gaen tae the General Assembly Buildin in Edinburgh? Ah aye mind they used tae interview aa the MSPs staunin on a black an white fleer fan the Parliament met there.
Celyn

In Edinburgh they would put me in the zoo.

Then again, free food and nothing to do.    Not a bad deal. Smile
Neil

Weel... Ah dinna ken aboot nothing tae dae; they seem affa keen on breedin they pandas!  Shocked
Celyn

Ooh yes, there's that.     Smile       Hmm, right so free food, sex.   It's looking better all the time.  

I wonder what the zoo policy is on drugs and rock 'n' roll.
Neil

Ah think the rockhopper penguins huv cornered the market.
dosser

Afore Ah wis half-deid, Ah wiz in a scooby divin' club whit use tae help clean Embr Zoo's penguin thingy place tae try tae raise funds.

Just thocht Ah'd mention it so that if thon Lyme infectit giant dosser-eating vampire tick has infectit me and I die soon, fowlk'll hae somethin' tae say aboot me at the funeral.

They can say, "He was one of a very small group of people who knew what penguin poo tastes like."

(If ye're interestit, it tastes sort o' eggie and poo-ey, and the taste disnae go away even efter sandwiches, soup, beer and smokin' yersel' seek.)
Celyn

Huh, it seems that pandas just don't know how to have fun.   Crying or Very sad    Eejits!

Ah thocht it wuid be mair fishy than that.
Celyn

Right, ta, we'll bear it in mind.  But how will we known when you're deid?  You'll have to train the dog to type and tell us.

Thon toast-folding page I posted previously    http://www.messybeast.com/baragami/baragami.htm        actually turned up after I came across an obit for an old friend in the Grauniad.   The obituary  about his space physics stuff was all right, but the toast-folding was more my level of intellect.

So let it be with dosser - remembered for eating penguin poo.   Smile
