Caps lock lets you post louder so everyone can see your punctuation-less, paragraph-long comment over the usual din of a busy thread

I can confirm that today is CAPS LOCK DAY.

I put that app together specifically because these sorts of observances are a thing.  And it makes me at least a little happy when I see that my app has got it right.

I wish the internet had not ruined the all-caps thing.

I much prefer to type in all caps - it is easier to read.  My handwriting is all capital letters, and all of the documentation I do at work is in all caps.

Oh well, I guess the internet can just think I'm a grumpy old person shouting.  It wouldn't be far from the truth.

Don't most ransom notes use all caps?

Used to have a keyboard macro that disabled caps lock.  The last time I tried regedit to remove it, it came back after the rebook/update.  Google Chromebox Keyboard removed the caps lock.

On the typewriter, the caps lock required a serious effort to use.  On the computer, it's just an accident waiting to be tapped.

My Two Cents.  HAPPY CAPS LOCK DAY he typed holding down the shift key.

Blame Charlemagne.

The reason the Latin alphabet has "uppercase letters" and "lowercase letters" is because during the early Middle Ages people forgot how to write properly, and written texts were becoming almost illegible.  When Charlemagne founded the Holy Roman Empire, one of the reforms he instituted was written language reform.  He had his scribes come up with a simpler, more legible way of writing letters.  This new "Carolingian" script became our lowercase alphabet, and the old Roman script was kept as the uppercase alphabet.

Psh. Caps lock is for peons. Classy folk use italics for emphasis.

/You didn't even notice the periods were in italics, did you?  Philistine.

I use the registry to change caps lock to the AppsKey (similar to right clicking). I also disable the NumLock key and have it fixed ON.
