You can just disable the Left Window$ key via registry?


I like what you did to the 's' (in the OS name). It makes it seem more
appropriate, especially with Window$ 8+.


Meh. In the US, the character becomes a dollar sign, which makes no
sense.


What was it supposed to be?

Is the group devolving to this ? /-:

Three Parts:

Preparing to Make a Cat
Making a Basic Cat Face
Creating More Complex Cats

Research ASCII art cat faces online (i.e. Google for =^_^=)

Something seems to have gone off the rails while
you were Preparing to Make a Cat. Perhaps you didn't
clear a large enough space on the table. Or the
cat wasn't cooperating (they get really scared
when they see scissors and oven mitts).

Uh?

It's supposed to be a dollar sign because Mico$oft Window$ is expensive
software to use and Microsoft just want your $$$s.
Very old joke first seen maybe 20 years ago.
Even more appropriate in the case of Micro$oft Office.

But since whoever it was that said it didn't make sense is in my kill
file I assume he was just trolling us by pretending not to get it.
