Notice to all users of the Holodeck:

There are safety protocols in place that cannot be deactivated without the approval of two commanding officers or the captain to protect users of the Holodeck from potential harm. However, every time the Holodeck is ever used in a nontrivial manner, no matter what the safety protocols say, the Holodeck turns into a deathtrap.

Unless you believe yourself to be adept at constructing a forcefield from your communicator and 19th century Earth tools, or you're at the very least not wearing a red shirt, you are strongly advised not to attempt to use the Holodeck until a designer comes up with a safety protocol that doesn't kill you whenever somebody looks at it funny. Even when you're not on the holodeck. Or in the same quadrant. Or time period.

In fact, if you are wearing a red shirt, Starfleet may not be the job for you

French is Fun

We're releasing the product today or it's Willy the Mail Boy's head on a silver platter. So I'm doing some final testing on a foreign OS so that we can be sure it works.

It's odd navigating around in French Windows (Bah Dum Psh!) and to actually already know what I'm doing. Text? Who needs stinkin' text. I navigate by muscle memory of where that item was in the list the last eighty times I clicked on it.

But that's not what I came here to talk about. I came here to talk about a French keyboard layout. First of all, 2 in French is apparently é. Second, if you want to try typing my username ("martys") on a French keyboard, go ahead. You'll end up with ",qrtys". But my favorite is the French throwback to the old "Interactive Fiction" text adventures of yore when trying to enter the default workgroup. Because when I typed in Workgroup, it came out zorkgroup.

You can get some pretty amusing stuff if you're not paying attention.
