    why would you want to do that? even with safe mode they have to have a
    local user account that they will need to log in with.

    Replying in the subject field is considered bad form.

    Asking questions that make no sense is also bad form.

    "This should cause Windows to crash the next time it is booted into Safe

    That would seem a sub-optimal solution.

    I didn't even say it was supported. MS does not directly provide a way to
    disable it (IIRC) but this will, um, kinda work...

    Yes, it works. I have already try it before. But I don't think it is a
    perfect solution.

    Just remove it, you know, with a pair of pliers.

    Also unneeded is that squigle thing over there on the upper left, I
    mean, who ever uses that?

    Other keys that can be removed: <Scroll Lock> (does anyone besides me
    know what this is for?), <Pause>, <SysRq> and <Break>.

    OK, I do use the <Break> key when I take my 15 min break twice a day,
    so I guess you can leave that one.

    And do we really need two <Shift>, <Alt> and <Ctrl> keys? Come on, don't
    be lazy, go ahead and reach across that keyboard.

    With all those spaces freed up I'm sure we can find room for the <P0rn>
    key, and maybe one of those <Any> keys I hear so much about.

    The only use of Scroll Lock I know of is switching between computers with a
    KVM switch. Other than that, it's rather useless. To me, anyway.

    The original intention of the scroll lock key was that for lists, it would
    "lock" the cursor at whatever vertical position it would currently be in,
    and scroll the entire screen up or down, leaving the cursor itself in a
    locked position. It is, however, a programmable key, in that it does not
    perform this function by itself. The applications are expected to check the
    state of this key and react accordingly. Hence, the vast majority of
    applications do absolutely nothing with this key, including none of the
    programs I have ever written.

    Speaking of calling them funny's a story from my trip last
    week...i think this lady was kidding, but you never know:

    So I was in charge of our PocketPCs. I had to set up the customers in our
    little ordering program, and then they go about their business with the
    handhelds scanning product and entering quantity. Of course, after a few
    minutes, the screen goes dark to conserve battery power. A simple tap of the
    screen with the stylus (or, because the customer probably dropped the stylus
    somewhere, they use a pen. With the cap off. Yeah. For real) will turn the
    unit's screen all bright and shiny again.

    So, this geriatric shell of a woman comes up to me at the desk and says, I
    sh!t you not, "My spirit box went night-night." I cocked my head like an
    inquisitive little puppy, then realized she was referring to the handheld.
    Then I laughed in her face. At her, with her, it doesn't matter really. But
    I showed her how to wake it up from it's "night-night", and went about my
    business. She was so old taht I don't think she could remember how to make a
    joke, so she may have been dead serious. I don't know. But it sure as hell
    was funny.
