HAPPY NATIONAL CAPS LOCK DAY

HAPPY CAPS LOCK DAY!

NO, I'M NOT YELLING AT YOU, TODAY IS NATIONAL CAPS LOCK DAY, Y'ALL! TODAY, YOU TOTALLY HAVE THE RIGHT TO "SHOUT" AT PEOPLE IN FORUMS AND HAVE A VALID EXCUSE.

ACTUALLY, I WASN'T AWARE OF HOW CONTROVERSIAL THE CAPS LOCK KEY WAS UNTIL I DID MY RESEARCH ON THIS GEEKY HOLIDAY. FOR EXAMPLE, DID YOU KNOW THAT IN 2006, THE CAPS LOCK KEY WAS NEARLY WIPED CLEAN FROM THE FACE OF YOUR QWERTY BY A CAMPAIGN STARTED BY PIETER HINTJENS? AND ALTHOUGH THAT PARTICULAR PROTEST OF THE CAPS DIDN'T PAN OUT, THE KID-FRIENDLY OLPC DOES NOT HAVE A CAPS LOCK AT ALL — THERE'S A BACKSPACE IN ITS PLACE!

SO IN HONOR OF GRANNIES WHO SEND EMAILS AND MOMS WHO INSTANT MESSAGE IN ALL CAPS — DESPITE HOW OFTEN YOU REMIND THEM NOT TO — I WISH YOU A HAPPY CAPS LOCK DAY! OKAY, THIS IS HURTING MY EYES NOW. . .
