When I was a kid, there was always a key marked "Return". These days it's always "Enter".
When did we reach the point of no Return?
@marnanel One likely answer: When Nu Shooz released "Point of No Return" in September 1986.
@marnanel I have a "return" button on a relatively new laptop keyboard :)
@marnanel We Entered a new era.
@marnanel Huh? Mine's return, on *checks* well my internal keyboard, but not my external one.
@marnanel This is on my six-year-old daily driver Mac. My two-year-old new one is *checks* also Return.
@IceWolf I think the Mac has usually had Enter and Return differently.
@marnanel few know this but if you come in the computer store looking like a fancy old-money person they give you one of the good old keyboards. it's not just in the clothes you wear, either, it's all in your carriage
I have a Model M around the place somewhere, and they are glorious to type on.
@marnanel carriage return? get it
anyway hell yeah old clicky keys
@triz I love the model M
@marnanel *Intro is in the corner crying*
@marnanel Probably when people started looking for the "Any" key.
@marnanel Just enter to return!
@marnanel Right after we decided to burn all our bridges behind us.
@marnanel TBH I only see a symbol nowadays… 🤔
@marnanel A key moment in history, I'd say!
@juliobiason nice :)
A silly instance of Mastodon for queer folk and non-queer folk alike. Let's be friends!
