Griff's post below reminds me of a call from my next bro yesterday.
A few keys on his laptop weren't too healthy, to the point he'd open a Word document to find a full stop (period, 0x2e) to (right-click, dropdown...) paste into his browser address bar.
So he dragged out the vacuum cleaner and attacked the keyboard. with the thing running
Among many other key combinations he managed to hit was one that turned the display off, I think at the BIOS level.
25 minutes later....
Half an hour of my life I'll never get back.
Software rusts. Simon Stephenson, ca 1994. So does this signature. me, 2012
That really depends on the time signature.
In a n/4 time signature it means a 1/4 note is a count so 1/8 is half a count and 1/16 is a quarter of a count. In 60 bpm that would mean a quarter of a second, quite doable.
In a n/8 time signature a 1/8 is a count, so 1/16 is only half a count or, in your example, half a second. That's slow!
Now an n/10 time signature, that's something else...
1) Because it means you are getting old.
2) Because suddenly you can see better...
The second of those may not seem like a problem - but when did you last have a good look at your keyboard?
New varifocals mean that for the first time in years I looked at what I spend a lot of time touching. Bad idea. Filthy - and I don't eat at my desk for just that reason...
So. Unplug it, out with the stiff paintbrush. Then that leads to the the rubber gloves. then the Screwdriver. Disinfectant. Needle nose pliers. Wire brush. Biohazard yellow disposal bags. Bleach.
I'm amazed I didn't infect you all with something really nasty just by typing on it...
All cleaned now. All working. Whole spare cat in loose fur remove, along with at least one small civilization...
When was the last time you had a close look at yours?
Bad command or file name. Bad, bad command! Sit! Stay! Staaaay...
