    I assume your on a laptop and the numlock is enabled. Hit the FN and the key that looks like a lock. Some laptops are stupid and enable it when you logout or restart. There is a registry hack you can do to disable it.

    Oh dear god thank you so much.

    I guess I panicked and didn't realize that the blue numbers on the affected keys were the ones that were coming out.
    Anyway, thanks for the quick reply.

    What's equally surprising (at least to all the outsiders I just copypasta'd this thread to) is the totally sane response. ^5.

    Oh and
    are hav1ng a -r6b3e^^

    The unreadability of that last word made it funny.

    I can barely stand the current heat level

    I decided what pisses me off about you is not your posts themselves, but that fact that i picture your avatar saying them in a very condescending voice.

    Agreed.

    I nearly dismissed it, but if you stick through just a little further, it becomes gold.

    Glad to hear the issue was easily fixed though.

    I can't help but read this as the ... uhhh... "real" Satan going "you seem to have gotten lost .... MUAAHAHAHAHAHA!" Perhaps with a wink and some horrendous flames behind him.

    <sigh> I'm bored and awfully unmotivated on this Friday morning.

    I've received a grand total of three phone calls related to this issue.

    *ring*
    Me: This is Ronen.
    User: RonenpleasehelpmeI'mtryingtotypelettersbutnumbersarecomingout.
    Me: Please slow down. Are you using your laptop keyboard?
    User: YesyouhavetohelpmeIhavetotypeupanemailreallyurgentlyIneedthisfixedASAPcanyoucomedown?
    Me: Below the bottom edge of your monitor, is there a little house with the number 9 in it glowing green? [On Thinkpads, nobody realizes the image is a lock. It's more recognizable if you call it a house, I've found]
    User: Yesjustcomedown
    Me: Press [button combination, I forget what it is]. The green house should go out. Try typing again.
    User: (breathing) You're a life saver!

    Repeat the exact same call two more times with about four months in between each... all from the same person. Also of note, all three times the person was in the office, at their desk, hooked up to an external monitor and had a USB keyboard available to them. Go figure.

    I used to mess with people in Congressional offices by turning on number lock. Serves them right for using a laptop as their main (and being generally retarded). It's nice seeing "our nation's brightest" struggling to figure out a simple function key. I would just hang out in the hallway waiting to see how long it would take for the blackberry to vibrate.

    haha yes, I did. I had 3 tabs open, one with G&T, one with H/A, one here. I obviously wasn't paying attention.

    Still the best thread ever :P.
