Default The infamous "Any Key" explained

I hope this is a joke, because it's pretty sad: http://web14.compaq.com/falco/detail.asp?FAQnum=FAQ2859 :lol:

What is the stupidest computer moment you've had?

Not really sure what is more degrading, being totally confused by the "any key" request or........

I remember back in the day www.pressanykey.com had a splash intro page with a graphic of the keyboard and it said to "Press Any Key To Enter". Well if you pressed any key you wanted it yelled out you saying you were an idiot cause they formatted the keyboard graphic to actually HAVE an any key.

If you can't figure that out though I'm pretty sure you need to not be using a computer

This reminds me of The Simpsons episode when Homer works at home because he's obese.

"Any key? Where's the any key?"
