Editorial This article describes some of my annoyances in computing. If you had any problems reading this article, then skip this one. It will only be a waste of your time. There are a lot of annoying things in the wonderful world of computing. Of course, nothing is perfect, but that doesn't mean we are not allowed to complain and scream and throw our keyboards at our monitors when yet another irritation pops up.

You are probably not recalling it because it does ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. (Well, in Safari it turns the cursor into a stupid question mark, which makes the OS rudely beep and nothing else when you click on something with it, and there are a few NON-APPLE apps such as Photoshop that do give it its hard earned function). In OS 9 it DID bring help up whatever app you where on.

In my Spanish keyboard it is just over the forward delete key, or left to the Home key (you know, in the subset of keys where Page up and Page down are).
