Adventures in Sitting (Ow.)

Well, somehow I managed, by some accidental and arcane series of keystrokes, to pivot my whole monitor display 90 degrees to the left. Yes, it's one of THOSE monitors.

Can I just take a moment to say that this is one of the STUPIDEST inventions EVER? The ability to use a screen on a horizontal display is the advantage of using a PC over a cell phone. Argh.

Anyway, as a result, I spent fifteen minutes with my head tilted drastically to the left and a little downwards while I hunted for the appropriate tab in the depths of Display Settings to change it back, because damned if I'm going to call the one IT guy probably left in the entire building up here to fix something I shouldn't have been dumb enough to screw up in the first place, really. I am not computer-stupid. Therefore I fix it myself.

Having the option? Okay, fine, whatever. Setting the hotkey to something close enough to alt+tab to switch it by accident? DESERVING OF MY VENGEANCE.

I did find it, eventually, but now I have a kink in my neck, and I have to go to the MALL after work. The MALL. Which generally gives me a headache anyway.

I'll get you for this, Hewlett Packard. You just see if I don't. *shakes fist*

In other news: FORTY-TWO MINUTES UNTIL I'M ON HOLIDAYS! WOO-HOO!

EEEP! EDIT: Final Harry Potter book title announced! It will apparently be called Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows. Hm. Doesn't exactly roll off the tongue, does it? Guess we shall wait and see.

...

Oh, who the hell am I kidding? EEEEEEEEE! *bounces around cubicle*

I managed to turn a screen by 90 degrees in the computer lab, by dropping my Java programming book on the keyboard. By the end of the quarter? The tech department STILL hadn't figured out how to change it back. Go geniuses.
