'[OT] Donations for mIGUEL'S keyboard'

I propose that a small fund is established to purchase mIGUEL a keybord which
has both of the shift keys removed at least I could then read his posts
without straining both eyes and brain trying to unscramble this ecentric mix
of upper and lower case strings.

To this end I propose a donation of one pound (English) to commence the fund.

If everone on the list donates a small ammount we can send him a large box of
functional keyboards.

Good idea,

I'll donate US$5 and at least four semi functioning AT
keyboards just to find out why that was happening.

Steve smith is really "mIgUeL" in disguise.

He is now relaxing on an island in the tropics with $400K and a box of
keyboards.

                                       ....at last a new form of net scam !

According to the PC standard, his keyboard _is_ functional.

The keyboard has a latching "caps lock" key.  And it has a
non-latching "up shift" key.  When neither is down, letters
are entered in lower case.  When either is down, letters are
in upper case.

On a type writer or a real computer, it's a logical OR
function.  When both are down (shift lock OR up shift
OR both), letter keys generate capitols.  This is what
people expect.

On the PC, it's a logical XOR function.  When both are
down (caps lock AND up shift), pressing a letter key
gets you a lower case letter.  I have always considered
this a bug (not a feature) in the PC keyboard driver.
