CAPS LOCK DAY!

NO, I AM NOT YELLING! I AM CELEBRATING CAPS LOCK DAY. Well, sort of.

capslokkFor those of you unfamiliar with this holiday (which is forgivable since it has only been around since 2000), a little background:

According to daysoftheyear.com, Caps Lock Day started when Derek Arnold of Iowa (Yay for homegrown holidays!) decided that he had simply had enough of people using all caps when writing on the web – YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE. He created Caps Lock Day to bring attention to this very important issue. Seriously, there is no reason for it – it just makes everyone think you are shouting or that you have poor keyboarding skills.

The best way to Celebrate Caps Lock Day is quite simple, don’t use caps lock! OR YOU CAN IRONICALLY USE ALL CAPS FOR EVERYTHING TO REMIND EVERYONE NOT TO DO IT. Either way, you can always use the computers at the Moline Library to send, post and/or write whatever you want, capitalized or not.
