I remember reading the South Of Heaven cassette sleeve notes. In the middle of a song's lyrics there are lines like "LEAD: HANNEMAN". I was 11 or 12 years old and didn't know what this meant. Then I heard it, and at that moment I was enlightened.

I often get bouncing keys on my new Dell XPS 13 Developer Edition, where the machine registers multiple key-presses for a single physical tap. This makes me think "cheap", but nonetheless I have a workaround for Ubuntu users. Instructions for Ubuntu 13.04 (Raring):
- Open Settings > Universal Access.
- Switch to the Typing tab.
- Enable Bounce Keys.
- Slide the Acceptance delay slider close to the left (i.e. Short).
I charge my Google/Samsung Galaxy Nexus overnight, in a dock by my bed. Since the upgrade to Android 4.2 - or something else that happened around the same time - the screen has been staying on all night, showing the clock. I couldn't find anything in the settings to disable this, and searching around the web yielded nothing.
By accident I figured it out:
- Go into Settings > Display > Daydream.
- Turn it off.
Simple, but not obvious.
