Still cleaning out, I came across an e-mail dated 4-14-2005 from Terri, in response to mine which read: “Just thought I’d let you know that my computer screen has turned upside down. I closed all programs and cut it off and it’s still upside down this morning!.”
She answered: “Good grief! OK. I will hopefully assume that it’s fixed by now but if not, I did a Google search and found this entry on a computer tech site:

“Once, at University, someone had flipped the screens of all the public computers (running on Windows XP) of the Engligh Department upside down. The wallpaper, desktop icons, fonts, mouse-cursor and even the start-up screen…everything was displayed or moved upside down. People could not check out their e-mails or surf or do anything. To reverse the upside down screen mode, press ctrl, alt and the up arrow (arrows console) at the same time; the screen will probably go blank. Turn off the monitor, turn it on again and the display will be normal again. If you possess a sense of humor or are antisocial, press ctrl, alt and the down arrow simultaneously, turn off the monitor, turn it on again and everyone (excluding the culprit) will be desperate–upside down! Works for Windows XP and Prof.
Hope your world will soon be sunny side up!”
