ANYONE EVER SEEN A CONSOLE TOP PLATE WITH A VACAUM GAUGE ATTACHED TO IT? THE GAUGE SAYS OLDSMOBILE ON IT.

That would be a different story then, wouldn't it? I don't think we'll ever know if the caps/shift keys are broken unless they tell us. I do have to admit, I've encountered a similar problem on my laptop (bumping the 'function' key and 'shift' key at the same time, resulting in everything I type appear as if I'm holding down 'shift'), but it does still hurt the eyes.

In regards to the post, I wish I could help, but you definitely came to the right place. Everyone I've encountered here seems to know their stuff and are very nice. I just felt compelled to respond to the 'broken keyboard' comment..

    1. Keyboards are cheap.
    2. When one is unwilling (or unable) to play by the rules, one should not expect to be welcomed into the game.

Hi Ankomst, welcome to TOC

Hence my original post.

Had the OP made the necessary corrections, via his/her "edit" button, my second post might have been quite different.

For example:

Yes, I have seen many of them.

Regards, Norm
