Re: Keyboard Optical Illusion

I witnessed the ALT+F4 trick many times in the old days playing Empire Earth online. As shameful as it is to admit, I also fell for it once.

Upon reading the original post, I just realized how much junk was in my keyboard... and subsequently emptied a whole bunch of loot out of it onto my just-cleaned-with-pledge desk.

I am entirely guilty of sitting at the computer watching movies/TV shows and eating crackers at the same time, and I never realized how many of them were going under the keys.
