And did you have any premonition that it wouldn't?

BTW, anyone know the name of the ` next to the 1 key?

Inquiring minds want to know.

It's in the ancient language and means.. the year of the cookies, it could also say; the year of the cake. There could have been some disagreement on this issue because no one really knows.. perhaps its an adaptive statement.

On American keyboards, this key has the ~ sign, which is the tilde. In many games, this key opens the developer console in games, hence the console key.
used to mean 'pipe' (send to) command in DOS

Yes I'm familiar with the upper case tilde, but I'm asking about the lower case`.

What is it's name and use?

Alternatively referred to as an acute, grave, grave accent, left quote, open quote, or a push, the back quote or backquote is a punctuation mark (`). It can be found on the same U.S. computer keyboard key as the tilde. Below is an example of a Perl code that uses back quotes to execute a system command and loads the command results into an array.

@files = `dir /b c:\windows\temp`;

I have absolutely no idea what any of this means.......

I just now remember we had the 'Accent Grave' in French class, it was of no help there either!

Just cover it with tape and you won't have to think about it any more. Wait, every time you look at the tape you'll think about it. Just use a sharpie the same color as your key. After a few days, you'll be fine.......
