While attempting to stop a video playing on Macro Media Flash Player 7,
I managed to lock out everything. I could not move the mouse cursor,
the arrow keys and the rest of the kb didn't work, ctl-alt-del did nothing.
None of the function keys did anything. (The video was something downloaded
from the 'net via Firefox.) I wound up pulling the big switch, as us hams
like to say. Is there anything else I could have done?
I'm trying to put Linux to practical use, and this is the first time I've seen
10.0 crash, so it's good, but not fool-proof. (If something can be broken,
this fool will break it!)
