I was just examining the laptop's numpad.rocksolid light 0.7.2
There was this little dot on it. Between the ins and enter key.
I was considering scratching it off for the fun of it...
And then I noticed something concerning.
I almost accidently deleted a file in the windows explorer !
Apperently the "del" and "." key on the numpad actually deletes files ?!
(There is also a second del key above the backspace on the laptop, it does the same thing which is more logical)
Now that may sound somewhat logical, BUT:
What's even more amazing is on the cheap/garbage "TRUST" keyboard on my PC this same key as a "STOP" icon and NOT the word DEL on it.
That's why this probably surprised the shit out of me.
I will check the Logitech UltraX keyboard to see what it does and what it's key says if still there/visible:
OK. No big deal I guess... The UltraX does have the word "DEL" on it ! LOL.
TRUST products ARE SO STUPID ?!?!? LOL.
Or am I missing something, why would TRUST remove such an important word from a keyboard and replace it with a "STOP" icon.
This trust keyboard does have 4 special buttons at the top, which are kinda stupid too, allows to turn off the PC. I suspect this is some kind of TRUST media keyboard where the numpad can be used to view video films or music.
Trust model is:
In case you wanna look it up !
Well that solves another slight mystery.
Goodbye for now,
P.S.: I share this with other newsgroups where people know how to type fast ! lol.
