Compaq FAQ: Where do I find the 'Any' key on my keyboard?: "The term 'any key' does not refer to a particular key on the keyboard. It simply means to strike any one of the keys on your keyboard or handheld screen."

Apparently Homer Simpson learned how to ask Compaq a question. And since it's a "Frequently Asked" question, apparently there are a lot of real people just as dumb as he is. Now we know they use Compaq-brand computers.

SacObserver.com [GOVERNMENT] Court Reinstates October 7 Recall Date: "As the appeals court mulled its decision, the GOP congressman who bankrolled the effort urged either McClintock or Schwarzenegger to drop out.

Rep. Darrell Issa said Monday that if both leading GOP candidates remained on the ballot, he would urge voters to vote no on recalling Davis because a yes vote would assure a victory for Bustamante."

Let me just rephrase that in my own words: 'The person who bankrolled the effort to recall Davis might actually vote No on the recall.' So, for him, it's not really about Davis' qualifications or performance at all, is it? It's simply about which party the governor belongs to. I'm flabbergasted that he would be so transparent as to admit that he'd rather just have Davis stay as governor than the possibility of a different Democrat. What happened to giving the rest of us voters a choice?

Apple's KnowledgeBase is a valuable tool for troubleshooting and serves as the official voice of Apple Support. So it's nice to see them tackle the tough subjects sometimes, like "Mac OS X: Locked File Can't Be Moved."

Their solution to this problem: "If you can't move a file because it's locked, unlock it before you move it."
