Sher-ee-eee don't like it

And I thought it was just me. I imagined that I was the only one who did it. I suspected that it was just something that amused me, and me alone.

I appear to have been wrong.

Driving home this lunchtime, I was listening to the radio and the presenter read out an e-mail from a listener. About how, whenever they were using a particular feature in MS Windows, they found themselves singing a 25-year old Clash song.

And I was punching the air, going: "Yes! I do that too! So it's not just me!" Which may have affected my driving just a little.

Those of you who still don't get it (and are Windows users) hover your mouse over the blue bar at the bottom of your screen. Right-button-click. Take a look at the options available.

And if you still don't know what I'm talking about, click here.

Does anyone else out there have similar peculiarities, I wonder?

Aw, it says that that particular video is not available in my country. Why is my country being discriminated against??

Yeah, sorry, even after hovering over the task bar, I still don't know what you're talking about lol

Lisa: You must be under the age of 35. :o)

LOCK the taskbar! LOCK the taskbar!

Is it wise to say at this point that most members of IT departments (aka GEEKS) refer to it as so.

I thought not.

Lisa: I think there may be some issues with YouTube. I couldn't embed the video, probably at the request of a record company somewhere.

Laquet/CG: Nailed it.

The Edgar: And there was I thinking that most IT guys simply knew the dialogue to the Star Wars film off by heart. Surely protest punk would be a little too rich for them?

Ha ha! This is the first time I've noticed that. I guess I never lock the taskbar, lock the taskbar, Sharif don't like it...crap. It's stuck in my head.
