Does anyone know what could possibly be causing my forward slash key to "go away". Its the strangest thing I have ever seen. I noticed it last night while on IRC. I went to type a command and the damn thing wouldn't type. And it just wasn't in mIRC...it was in any program. I rebooted and it was back for a bit but then I started up mIRC and it went away again. I ran a virus scan and checked for trojans but it came up clean....:(
 
test it with another keyboard, if it doesn't then you know the problem, if it does then you know is a system problem
 
i have tested it with another keyboard...perhaps i just need to reformat and reload...i dont mind doing that if it fixes the problemo...
 
have you mapped the key to something else? Possibly a stupid annoying little trojan...
 
look, your forware slash key and i were talking the other night... your just too abusive man. you need to lighten up. forward slash and i argree to you spending sometime alone. how can you 'know' others, without 'knowing' yourself. please thinks heavily on this, while i ponder about why i am actually posting this.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
