WELL! That was a very Twilight Zone-esque adventure, I must say!

Uh.....Thanks? Max?

I did - but just because I had to see what it would do. Precocious, inquisitive, curious, investigative... call me what you will.

ESC-ing out doesn't work.

So then it became a *challenge*.

Well, you know I did too. Thank God somebody here told me about Ctrl/Alt/Del. I finally figured out what to do, without shutting down.

Max--will I EVER learn??? [blowing you a forgiving kiss e]

I pressed the button and it didn't to anything other than give me a little window that said "YOU HAVE." Had to open that little thing in a new window to see the full message. Rather uneventful otherwise. It didn't actually freeze up your browser, did it? Must be a Windows thing . . .

It didn't actually freeze up your browser, did it? Oh, NO, of COURSE it didn't do anything as awful as that...it just took my whole screen, so that there was nothing for me to click on--no bottom bar (what is that thing called, anyway?), no handy little X, nothing.
