(I may have posted this before, if so, apologies)
Back in the day when I used Wordstar to write all of our user manuals I had been really stuck into some heavy duty writing and had forgotten to save my work for some time ...

To close down Wordstar without saving any of your work required the rather complicated keystroke sequence of Ctrl+KQY.
Any other sequence would result in nothing happening or at worst an error message.

Any. Other. Sequence. Of. Keystrokes.

Enter my cat (kitten) ... took a stroll over the keyboard... Hesitated when I screamed, with its paw hovering over the Y. Looked me right in the eye and placed that paw down. Evil incarnate, I swear.
