    Did I miss that memo?

    Just been sat in a "ICT lesson" (learning touch typing) and the teacher come out with the following
    "Most modern laptops don't have CAPS lock on the keyboard so you'll have to learn how to use the shift button"

    all the kids seemed to nod their head like it was completely normal, since when and what laptops?
    am i that out of touch.

    Think I'll need to lock my cap on the way home tonight so it doesn't blow off my head! Or should I post that here?

    Lucky you to be even that close to a standard layout, we have a lot of keyboards that say things like fu*k off (using letters borrowed from other keyboards, and no asterisk!)
