Re: Do Nothing Button
The problem clearly lies between the keyboard and the chair.

Re: Do Nothing Button
I experience a chill and fear of euphoria or maybe of euphoniums.

I tried not clicking but it is too late, I already clicked.


Anyone so limited that they can only spell a word one way is severely handicapped!

Re: Do Nothing Button

The power of mind. Instead of seeing the euphonium as a trumpet on steroids try thinking of it as a runt sousaphone. This may alleviate the phear.

If not then the proper treatment is a hefty-sized glass of your libation of choice followed by a second ... and a third ... and a fourth ...

Repeat as necessary until the symptoms abate.

Best of luck to you.

Do try not to spill any on the carpet.

Is that more towards the level above the keyboard or more towards the level that positions upon the chair?

The Do Nothing Button Explained
The Do Nothing Button is based upon thiotimoline principles and is very sensitive, so sensitive that it clicks and nothing happens 1.12 seconds before you actually click on it. If you hover your mouse over the button and poise your finger ready to click but don't actually click then nothing will happen all night long. Treat it with care.

Oh with the utmost care after the experience I had with it. Would you believe I did that already, kept my finger poised over the button all night and just as you say it did absolutely nothing. A VERY sensitive button indeed. But at exactly .08 seconds after sunrise a ray of sunlight struck the button and the entire EvC screen lit up with bursting psychedelic patterns and colors. It was absolutely gorgeous. It lasted exactly .5 seconds. But I was blinded for the next hour. I do not recommend experimenting with this button.

Re: The Do Nothing Button MUTATED
I started to hit it but feared Percy would hate his drive being reformatted.

Re: The Do Nothing Button MUTATED
Oh! Don't take that seriously! That's just the Transmogrifying Cybergrinch playing tricks on us. He comes out of hiding about this time every year and just wants to keep us from clicking a perfectly safe button and one that could be very entertaining too. If I've calculated accurately, the button should open up a portal to the cargo hold of the Millennium Falcon. Of course I might be off by a tad and it would take you to the Mad Hatter's tea party. Or, of course, I suppose it COULD reformat your hard drive...

Did that happen on the road to Damascus, by any chance?
