Don't Do This Now, But It's There If You Need It
From the AP:
David Bradley spent five minutes writing the computer code that has bailed out the world's PC users for decades.
The result was one of the most well-known key combinations around: CtrlAltDelete. It forces obstinate computers to restart when they will no longer follow other commands.
Bradley, 55, is getting a new start of his own. He's retiring Friday after 28 1/2 years with IBM.
At a 20-year celebration for the IBM PC, Bradley was on a panel with Microsoft founder Bill Gates (news - web sites) and other tech icons. The discussion turned to the keys.
"I may have invented it, but Bill made it famous," Bradley said.
Gates didn't laugh.
