Ever since my laptop died and was replaced by a desktop with a plug-in keyboard, I have noticed an increasing number on uncapitalized I's in my emails and posts. I blame this on some weird keyboard quirk.
Last week I finally complained to Drek about it and he added that the keyboard drove him crazy because of the positioning of the arrow keys. The next thing I knew Drek and purchased a new keyboard for us and my I's were back to their regular capitalization.
Sadly, yesterday Ash decided that our new keyboard needed a bath. We dried it out best we could, but now I am noticing that I cannot type an exclamation mark or an at symbol. I can type the number one: 1. I can type the number two: 2. but when I add the shift key, nothing is typed. I never realized how much I use exclamation points.
This has created a small problem in that tone isn't expressed in written form, so when I say something like:
Great We can't wait to see you
It comes across as more sarcastic. Huh. Is
Great exclamation point We can't wait to see you exclamation point exclamation point
any better? Maybe we just need to go back to uncapitalized I's for a while.
