    If that was a Mac, you would have got cake. if you could find the Sys Req key. So I was told.

    On my keyboard, the SysRq key is combined with the Print Screen key, and I've used that key a LOT. So someone owes me a couple thousand pieces of candy... *Taps foot*

    I also have used that key a lot because it is combined with my delete button. I should be receiving candy out of this thing like a winning slot machine.

    *after pressing: alt, shift, sys rq* Windows 7 Ultimate says: "Do you want to turn on High Contrast?" I say: "No and I want my candy."

    That is so much better than what you normally get to the face from the internet! Has Shoelace started a new hat trend? I do think he has.

    On linux you can use the so called "Magic Sysreq key". It allows you to use some low level commands (rebooting, sync mounted filesytems, killing tasks etc) so if your system hangs, you can still reboot your computer without corrupting files or stuff like that.

    SysRq is used under unix systems (Linux, Mac), and is used to send commands directly to the kernel (system core) like print register, hang up, or... crash :P. And many, many others.

    It also often doubles as the PrtSc key, which is used for screenshotting.
