wHAT I REMEMBER FROM THE PAST, IS THIS ANNOYING FEATURE OF THE TRS-80 (TRASH 80) DEVICE, WHERE THE CAPITAL LETTER WERE THE ONLY OPTION. tHE ONLY WAY TO READ BBS TEXT WAS TO HAVE THE BACKGROUND REVERSED ON EVERY LOWERCASE LETTER, AND IT WAS SIMILAR TO THIS POST. wHICH I AM SURE YOU WILL AGREE IS ANNOYING AS HELL. oH, AND THE THE 300 BAUD MODEM WAS KILLER, WITH A CASSETE TAPE FOR A HARD DRIVE AND A CARTRIDGE PORT. Caps Lock Keys are about as obsolete as the scroll lock (I use that for my KVM switch) and the pause/break button. Sure, they *can* be useful, but for how many of us? Only the geeks. I'm sure we geeks can program a key combo to hold down the shift button.
