Once will working for a reseller of officeproducts I got phoned by a sales represant who aske me about "The any key".
At that sentence i remebered that my boss once told us about this guy, and the trouble to have him understand that the any key is just as it sounds any key on the keyboard. With no luck in convincing him that he told him that it's the space key.
Back to my phonecall. This time hi said that his keyboard was broken. "The anykey is broken." I asked him a few questions about other keys if they work. "I dunno??? How can I test if they work..."
"Just send me a mail and type something in it that includes spaces...", I replied. I got the mail and there where spaces in some places but not all. Somewhere the "space" had deleted a letter instead...
I called him up and asked if the space key was split into two. Some compaq server had that for a while. And yes it was. Then I asked him how the hell has he been able to get one. And he replied "I saw it when the cleaners was in the closet and I thought it was cool so i took it".
"But wasn't it connected to a machine???" I asked him. And he replied with a "Sooo????"
What he had done was to just switch the server off (no shutdown of course) and pull the keyboard out and switch the server on so that no one would notice. The thing was that the server crashed and lost the last 2 days of documents (just a fileserver).
