Turn your monitor upside down.

Try not to be to harsh with the kitty.

Looking around on the internet, apparently if you hold down ctrl & alt and press the down arrow key, it flips the screen. The post I read said they were using xp, but it doesn't work on my computer. Might try that, too.

Only some graphics drivers are capable of rotating the screen but the ctrl alt key / up-down arrows should do it like Bearcat says.

Sometimes, just to get a different view, I look at the back of my monitor.

I do get tired, though, of looking at the back of people's heads.

Might try that, too.Yep, Alt + Ctrl + any arrow key will work. We do it to the old guys' terminals at work once in a while. Freaks them out.

In my mind, it is 1937 and I am cold, afraid, and hungry for this man atop of me to commit the act of touch. I clasp the back of Todd’s neck with my hand and press my lips against his, so hard that they become numb. He forces his tongue between my lips-he tastes salty and there is rum on his breath. His fingers press into my shoulders. There will be bruises in the morning. I wrap one leg around his waist and wince as small rocks cut into my back. The water is colder now.
Read “Strangers in the Water” (http://www.fishnetmag.com/) in Fishnet, Blowfish's journal of erotica.


Well, the man certainly has a distinct writing style...

No, I mean, why is this setting even possible? Is this Bill Gates' way of creeping even deeper into my pathetically shallow psyche?

This happened to someone at work one time. Everyone was trying to figure out how it happened. I looked and the numbers lock was off. One of the shortcut keys we have set up to open a certain program (which this employee would have been trying to get into) is Ctrl + Alt + 2. He used the 2 in the number pad, which is of course the down arrow when the numbers lock is off. I simply tried the opposite arrow (being the up arrow), and fixed it. I was a hero! My boss and I figured this would be a great way to play a little April Fools joke on employees this year, but it turns out that only certain computers have this feature. Oh well.

I think it would be very handy for a bat.

Ya know, for psoting right before going to sleep.

I have a friend that mounted a lap top monitor in the head liner of his truck (really fancy) He uses this setting.

FWIW trying alt+cont+arrow key with Win98 just scrolls the screen.

Hmmm, I have Windows XP Professional here at work and alt+ctrl+arrow key does nothing. It must not work on all.
