is CTRL ALT UP a toggle for that then?

under other circumstances I'd experiment, but today i just really need my computer to do what i want it to do. i.e. help me communicate with the outside world and keep me entertained

CTRL-ALT-[direction that you want to be "up"]. IE, CTRL-ALT-DOWN is upside down.

Same, then... ever since my main work PC is a laptop I keep docked, but also take to meetings, I use that dumb mousepad thing without even thinking about it. I don't even plug a mouse into my laptop at home, now.

I'd still feel cheated. She took the risk of stealing it for a piece of crap.

Don't start that shit please. It's condescending and rude, not to mention poorly timed.

I'm sorry. I was trying to be funny. I didn't mean to cause offence.
