Is there something wrong with your keyboard? It appears that whenever you
type an "S" after an "M", the "S" mysteriously has a "|" superimposed on it.
I once had a similar problem that interfered with my "e", "C", "Y", "L" and
"o" keys although it affected hardware vendors' rather than software
If your parents can't afford to get you a keyboard that works properly, let
me know. I have a number of old keyboards that work just fine, and I'd be
happy to send you one. What would you like? For a PC I can let you have a
Dll or a "ompaq. If you are using a dumb terminal, I've got a W%SE that I
no longer use. If you use an old UK mini-computer, I've got one from an IC#
terminal and I don't need it any more. It would be poetic if you're using a
Playstation but I'm afraid I don't have a S$ny. S$rry.
P.S. I just thought of something --- maybe it's not your keyboard at all.
Maybe you've buggered your spell checker's auto-correct dictionary. Probably
someone on the list can help you sort this out. Don't be concerned that it's
not VNC-related ... people on this list are happy to help people such as
yourself who are just starting out with computers.
