    Well the seemingly random letters comprising the new name of your HD are a part of this web page title.

    Goops sorry Lisa and everybody I was away at a convention and replied to this thread on my iPhone but for some reason the web address I thought I'd attached to my reply did not attach. The point of the web site was about the sort of things people search might for out of boredom just to see what comes up like MNBVCXZ and LKJHGFDSA.
    Sorry to confuse the issue, I too made the connection eventually that it was just the bottom row of the Querty keyboard eventually but I had to read a couple of the references before I got it.

    Good sluthing Rod. One can just imagine something getting dragged along the keyboard, just at the wrong time...
