Re: wanna learn somethin?

I would like to teach you something, I surely hope you learn.

The shift button is, generally, above the Ctrl button and beneath the Caps Lock button. It has an arrow on it that points up. This makes a letter a capital if pressed in unison.

The word 'I' must always be a capital, since it's, effectively, a proper noun. The starting letters of a sentence must also be a capital. An ellipsis (...) should only be applied if you wish to continue the sentence at another time; in effect "trailing off" for a short time.

After that lesson; welcome to MathIsFun.


Boy let me tell you what:
I bet you didn't know it, but I'm a fiddle player too.
And if you'd care to take a dare, I'll make a bet with you.

Welcome to MathsIsFun star-rider1. I hope you enjoyed Zach's lesson.

This reminds me of a point when my SHIFT button came out of its socket and I had to use a pencil to hold it down or press it every time I needed to.

Re: wanna learn somethin?

Couldn't you have just used CAPS instead? OK, it's one more key press, but it must be easier than faffing around with pencils.


Why did the vector cross the road?
It wanted to be normal.

Re: wanna learn somethin?

I got used to it in the end, and  I'm just not used to using my little finger on my left hand to press the Caps Lock button. It's a habit. Plus, pencils r c00l.
