This Month's FAQ – What Does The Software Term "Easter
Question: I've heard the term "Easter Egg"
applied to software. I'm familiar with the chocolate candy variety I saw in
baskets last month, but not this kind. What is an Easter Egg?
Answer: An Easter Egg is an undocumented function or inside joke
hidden in software by its makers — secret "goodies" found by word
of mouth or by accident. They are in no way destructive and are usually
placed there simply for additional fun and credits. The term was coined by
Atari after a secret message was left by software designer Warren Robinett in
the video game Adventure. This practice is similar in some respects to
hidden signature motifs such as Alfred Hitchcock's legendary cameo
appearances in his movies and the "Hidden Mickeys" throughout the
various Disney Parks.
In computer software, Easter Eggs are secret results that occur in response
to an undocumented set of commands. These results can vary from a simple
printed message or image to a page of programmer credits or a small videogame
hidden inside an otherwise serious piece of software. Videogame cheat codes
are a specific type of Easter Egg, in which entering a secret command will
unlock special powers or new levels for the player. Easter Eggs can also be
found in movies, TV commercials, DVDs, and CDs.

Short Tutorial – Save Time By Learning Keyboard Shortcuts
In today's fast-paced world, it seems we're
all looking for ways to get more done in less time. One way to be more
efficient while on the computer is by using keyboard shortcuts to do frequent
tasks instead of moving the mouse and clicking icons.
To perform a keyboard shortcut, you press two, three, or sometimes four
keyboard keys at the same time. If that sounds tricky, keep this in mind: You
can press and hold the Control (CTRL) key first and then press the other
key(s). If you're a Mac user, use the Command (CMD) key instead of the CTRL
key for the keyboard shortcuts below.
Here are some of the most popular keyboard shortcuts:
The first rule of computer use is to save your work often. You never know
when the program you're using, or your entire computer, is going to crash.
It's a good idea to use this shortcut after every few sentences you write.
This shortcut lets you undo a mistake very quickly. Pressing CTRL+Z several
times will often undo the last several changes.
If you do a lot of copying and pasting of text, these keyboard shortcuts will
really save you time. Just use the mouse to select what you want to copy,
press CTRL+C, click the mouse where you want to paste, and press CTRL+V.
There are hundreds of other keyboard shortcuts and, depending on your
computer habits, you may want to learn more of them. For complete information,
visit this site for Windows
or this site for Mac.
