1999apr24. So for the last fifteen years or so, I’ve had a habit of hammering on the arrow keys a certain way when doing full-screen text editing on my little rotty computer. It goes like this:

click click click click click
(pause)
click click click click click
(pause, etc)

I never really thought much about it at all until I came across an old pinball machine in a restaurant. I used to play pinball pretty much 24 hours a day during my youth. I put in a quarter, and the first thing that all of those old machines do is reset the analog scoring reels to zero:

chunk chunk chunk chunk chunk
(pause)
chunk chunk chunk chunk chunk
(pause, etc)
