Since I began working at Apple, I’m often called upon to support newly converted Mac OS X users, especially those coming from the Linux side. The following is a discussion I had with one of my professors about the entirely excellent Adium instant messaging client:
DrAnon: On another note, how does one tell Adium to send on something other than Enter or Return? Is it possible?
Me: go Adium->Preferences->General
Me: then uncheck Send on Enter and Send on Return
Me: then Apple+Enter will send
DrAnon: Where does it say anything about Apple+Enter?
Me: I believe this requires mind reading
DrAnon: And what’s wrong with control?
DrAnon: My thumb is not used to so much work.
Me: Control called Steve Jobs’ mother a whore in ’81
DrAnon: Control’s temper strikes again.
