A8N-E - Most useful BIOS innovation ever?

Discussion in 'Asus' started by Thomas A. Horsley, Mar 1, 2006.

  1. For so many years I've been hammering on the DEL key over and over, never
    knowing if I pressed it too soon or too late.

    It has been a while since I built a new computer, but I was so glad to see
    the BIOS on my new A8N-E tells me "OK, I'm gonna go into setup real soon
    now" when I press the DEL key :). Don't know if this is typical of most
    boards today or not.

    Now if only the next incarnation of Windows would come with a "OK,
    I'm gonna boot up in safe mode real soon now" message...

  2. Per Thomas A. Horsley:
    My vote goes for what a co-worker suggested back in the mainframe days.

    She said that every keyboard should have a big, red "Oh Shit!" key.

    You press the key and the last thing you did/message you sent is automagically

    In my experience, that doesn't work with women, nor computers... Like in the
    movie, Dr. Strangelove, once you press the button, there's no going back...

    My asus accepts voice commands, so, I say, 'computer, run a level 2
    diagnostic' and it gets done . . .
