The Lounge is rated PG. If you're about to post something you wouldn't want your
kid sister to read then don't post it. No flame wars, no abusive conduct, no programming
questions and please don't post ads.
1. The lounge is for the CodeProject community to discuss things of interest to the community, and as a place for the whole community to participate. It is, first and foremost, a respectful meeting and discussion area for those wishing to discuss the life of a Software developer.
The #1 rule is: Be respectful of others, of the site, and of the community as a whole.
2. Technical discussions are welcome, but if you need specific programming question answered please use Quick Answers[^], or to discussion your programming problem in depth use the programming forums[^]. We encourage technical discussion, but this is a general discussion forum, not a programming Q&A forum. Posts will be moved or deleted if they fit better elsewhere.
4. No politics (including enviro-politics[^]), no sex, no religion. This is a community for software development. There are plenty of other sites that are far more appropriate for these discussions. Or if you must, use the Back Room[^] - but enter at your own risk.
5. Nothing Not Safe For Work, nothing you would not want your wife/husband, your girlfriend/boyfriend, your mother or your kid sister seeing on your screen. For those discussions where you wish to be a little more frank, use the Soapbox[^]
6. Any personal attacks, any spam, any advertising, any trolling, or any abuse of the rules will result in your account being removed.
7. Not everyone's first language is English. Be understanding.
Please respect the community and respect each other. We are of many cultures so remember that. Don't assume others understand you are joking, don't belittle anyone for taking offense or being thin skinned.
We are a community for software developers. Leave the egos at the door.
Crikey! I bought my first in about 1999, and it took months to get it configured, using extensive help from the ISP and the SonicWall support experts (not first level). This one's no simpler, and it didn't come with a manual. Why do they have to make these machines so difficult set up? All acronyms, no explanations, and online help that is utterly useless - true Microsoft copies. It's an amazingly powerful machine for protecting a network, but how does one tell if it's been set up right, when everything is written in a foreign language? Grrrr....
I once read a space opera style story where the helmsman of a battleship quoted this before the big battle, well knowing that only two people on the bridge were old enough to have read that book when it was first published.
I have lived with several Zen masters - all of them were cats.
His last invention was an evil Lasagna. It didn't kill anyone, and it actually tasted pretty good.
1. its simplicity and design that mapped to a real-world structure
2. the friendly syntax of HyperTalk
3. ease of use to create useful mini-apps, presentations.
In the context of its times, it was a remarkable innovation that enabled "mere mortals," enjoying the first-wave of affordable personal computers that were not toys for geeks, to be creators, and to be productive.
It was invented by Atkinson based on an LSD trip.
«... thank the gods that they have made you superior to those events which they have not placed within your own control, rendered you accountable for that only which is within you own control For what, then, have they made you responsible? For that which is alone in your own power—a right use of things as they appear.» Discourses of Epictetus Book I:12
Try plugging in a "real" keyboard, and see if that works. If it does, it may be the cable connecting the lappie K/B has "slipped", but it's worth turning it off removing the battery, and seeing if it improves.
The latest version 1803 if working fine for me on tablet and desktop.
Bad command or file name. Bad, bad command! Sit! Stay! Staaaay...

I have been living with something similar; is your rig an HP? I have a few keys that haven't worked in a while in normal Windows, but they seemed to work fine in Google Earth. I probably should have tried it in Linux, but because Windows 10 comes with the keypad at the bottom, I've learned to live with it, and it has slipped my mind since then. Now that I have a new rig, I'm going to completely reformat & reinstall Windows on this old rig, so maybe I'll get a definitive answer that something screwy was going on.
I'd like to have a small partition to have Linux/Ubuntu, and boot to that whenever I would like, but I am a bit afraid that it might somehow screw up the rest of the system - in which case I don't want to take the risk.
