Tired of endlessly scrolling to the bottom of a web page or endlessly scrolling back up to the top - i just learned that if you hit the 'Home' key, you get brought back up to the top and the 'End' key will send you to the bottom of the page.
go ahead - i know you're DYING to test it out - no ones looking - go ahead see for yourself. ...

Don't look up, or you will get an arrow in your eye. And they are a pain to extract. (it's either that, or drill a hole in the coffin lid)

Which could be a cause of tintinnabulation.

Anyway, still in Geek Stuff ( but may soon end up in OT )

Some erudition for you;

We believe that the Battle of Hastings, taught to us as kids, was actually fought
at Senlac Hill about 10 miles away from Hastings. Our Harry was allegedly shot in
the eye with an arrow fired by the Normans. The loss of King Harold brought King William to the throne.

This 'Conquest' was caused by an ongoing spat with Charles the Simple under the French Carolingian ruler at the time to settle what is now Normandy. The English had an interest in the region because of the death of Edward who was then exiled to Normandy. Now the fight starts, as it were because it is so bloody difficult to understand the major families involved.

Anyway that is a short history and the rest should you be interested, can be read here.

British history ancient and modern is certainly convoluted but is surely very
interesting.
History has recorded in a wonderful way the Bayeux Tapestry, I direct you here to the
fullest in the finest;

The tapestry is really amazing. I visited in Bayeux in the 60's and went back a couple of years ago when we stayed in Granville, Normandy. If you like vast sand beaches, the area is worth visiting.

Mike is correct. Except he missed out the bit that the Normans where actually descendants of the Vikings who invaded and settled in that part of France. Taking over surrounding areas, to become what is now known as Normandy. Normans = Men from the north (not northern France)

vissy, can you explain all the other keys on the keyboard too. There are a few that I don't understand.

PS: I just pushed one I had never tried and it shut off the system. I think I'll put some duct tape over it.
