What is the most annoying thing your Child has ever done to get your attention?
Just the other day, my Eleven year old Daughter was rather fed-up with Mum laying carpets... time consuming I know,
so to get my attention, she presented me with a computer screen that was upside down :-(
I did a quick System Restore,to save some time, but later on after a bit of searching Google, I found out her trick, ctrl + alt + up or down arrow.....I never knew that! (I actually thought it was a graphics problem - from some game or something) It seemingly only works on XP, that will teach me not to spend quality time with my Child.
That only works if the graphics is set up to do that, it also works in Win 2000 we do it to some of the others at work sometimes for a laugh mind you the IT dept get fed up with having to do remote assistance to show them how to get it back to normal
Seriously, your daughter is young enough to take in the majority of information fired at her and it's the best time to take up what ever proves of particular interest; the brain absorbs information like a sponge.
In later life it could very well form the basis of a life long career - something I know very well in the case of both my offspring.
Our youngest, now 43 was taught to read by his elder sister (45) when he was below school age and flatly refused to go to the very new playgroup.
After a year or two we discovered he could read equally well upside down or rightway round, because most of his demonstration "tuition" had been from using what space was available on his knees facing his sister who was doing the reading to him.
He can still read quite small text upside down. An affable sort of guy, woe betide anyone trying to keep him from seeing the small print!
Gridd,what a lovely child...you didn't have guests at the time did you? :-)
alan 14, what a remarkable story....about the young girl. Strangely enough although I made light jest about my experience....in my earlier post, regarding navigating to system restore with an upside down screen, it was in fact a very difficult manoeuvre,the strangest thing was trying to work the mouse, I had no control over it at all!
