You know you're addicted to DC software when...
« on: April 21, 2008, 01:05:27 PM »
(this really happened to me...)

... You hit the 'break' key intending type "fin" and hit enter so you can run FARR and realize it doesn't work because FARR isn't running, and then realize what you were just now attempting to do...
:wallbash:


Post yours!

... I go for the 'Break' key to launch any app only to realize the computer in question does not have FARR installed. Thank God for the Win + R key combo. And this happens everyday when I sit in front of a computer.

Then again, I also try to use mouse gestures everywhere, guess great ideas stick in people's mind.

It just struck me as funny that I was intending to run FARR and was trying to use FARR to do it with... It was a vertigo-inducing blend of Escher and Kafka for a second there.

...You start inserting the + symbol into the middle of your phrases, sentences or document titles and adding the word robot to the end of the same.

...You start doing the same but actually speaking them out loud.

"Take a pocket knife and just tear allllllllll these buttons out... But keep all these buttons handy, you're going to need them later."



I'm going to have to add a link to this "tutorial" on the FARR homepage.. I hope it doesn't drive too many people insane..

ahahahah!

I agree : "But keep all these buttons handy, you're going to need them later." is probably the funniest part.

excellent video tutorial, nite_monkey. probably just at the right level for many computer users i've encountered.

i'd like to see more in this series; there's plenty of source material to go at.

<off-topic>
I made a second tutorial video with my friend, this one is about keyboard shortcuts... based on the first one, you can only imagine how this one ends if anyone has ideas for the next video, let me know

rotfl, I actually did that once also, when I had re installed windows, and didn't have farr installed yet.
