Pull the batteries out of it and let it dry! Don't use it for a day or two. Blow hot air on it if you can. It'll still work again, but you can't use it in the meantime.

Yes, they're useful for saving space in articles. :)

Hidden Content:
On a Ship at Sea. A tempestuous noise of thunder and lightning heard.

Enter a Shipmaster and a Boatswain severally.

Mast. Boatswain!

Boats. Here, master: what cheer? 4

Mast. Good, speak to the mariners: fall to’t yarely, or we run ourselves aground: bestir, bestir. [Exit.

Enter Mariners.

Boats. Heigh, my hearts! cheerly, cheerly, my hearts! yare, yare! Take in the topsail. Tend to the master’s whistle.—Blow, till thou burst thy wind, if room enough!

Enter ALONSO, SEBASTIAN, ANTONIO, FERDINAND, GONZALO, and others.

8

Alon. Good boatswain, have care. Where’s the master? Play the men.

Boats. I pray now, keep below.

Ant. Where is the master, boson?

Boats. Do you not hear him? You mar our labour, keep your cabins: you do assist the storm. 12

Gon. Nay, good, be patient.

Boats. When the sea is. Hence! What cares these roarers for the name of king? To cabin: silence! trouble us not.

Gon. Good, yet remember whom thou hast aboard.

Boats. None that I more love than myself. You are a counsellor: if you can command these elements to silence, and work the peace of the present, we will not hand a rope more; use your authority: if you cannot, give thanks you have lived so long, and make yourself ready in your cabin for the mischance of the hour, if it so hap.—Cheerly, good hearts!—Out of our way, I say. [Exit. 16

Gon. I have great comfort from this fellow: methinks he hath no drowning mark upon him; his complexion is perfect gallows. Stand fast, good Fate, to his hanging! make the rope of his destiny our cable, for our own doth little advantage! If he be not born to be hanged, our case is miserable. [Exeunt.

Re-enter Boatswain.

Boats. Down with the topmast! yare! lower, lower! Bring her to try with main-course. [A cry within.] A plague upon this howling! they are louder than the weather, or our office.—

Re-enter SEBASTIAN, ANTONIO, and GONZALO.

20

Yet again? what do you here? Shall we give o’er, and drown? Have you a mind to sink?

Seb. A pox o’ your throat, you bawling, blasphemous, incharitable dog!

Boats. Work you, then.

Ant. Hang, cur, hang! you whoreson, insolent noisemaker, we are less afraid to be drowned than thou art. 24

Gon. I’ll warrant him for drowning; though the ship were no stronger than a nutshell, and as leaky as an unstanched wench.

Boats. Lay her a-hold, a-hold! Set her two courses; off to sea again; lay her off.

Enter Mariners, wet.

Mar. All lost! to prayers, to prayers! all lost! [Exeunt. 28

Boats. What, must our mouths be cold?

Gon. The king and prince at prayers! let us assist them,

For our case is as theirs.

Seb. I am out of patience. 32

Ant. We are merely cheated of our lives by drunkards.—

This wide-chapp’d rascal,—would thou might’st lie drowning,

The washing of ten tides!

Gon. He’ll be hang’d yet, 36

Though every drop of water swear against it,

And gape at wid’st to glut him.

[A confused noise within,—‘Mercy on us!’—

‘We split, we split!’—‘Farewell, my wife and children!’— 40

‘Farewell, brother!’—‘We split, we split, we split!’—]

Ant. Let’s all sink wi’ the king. [Exit.

Seb. Let’s take leave of him. [Exit.

Gon. Now would I give a thousand furlongs of sea for an acre of barren ground; long heath, brown furze, any thing. The wills above be done! but I would fain die a dry death. [Exit.

I dunno, whaddaya think:

I'm thinking, instead of

Hidden Content:
becoming [spoilers] as I originally thought, what would you guys think of leaving [hide] and nixing spoilers? Folded content has a lot more uses than just spoilers, making [hide] more semantic and appropriate. It could be rewritten to allow titling, like:

[hide=Spoilers for The Dark Night]There are credits at the end!

Where the result would appear as "Hidden Content: Spoilers for The Dark Night | Show" in the title bar.

Would that work for you peeples? ;)

Of course, the old Spoilers tag would remain in place to preserve the quasi-hiddeness of content in existing posts which use it, but it would be removed from the array of buttons on the posting screen.

Works for me, [hide] seems like it would be appropriate.

Other news: I've uploaded my final signature and avatar set for this year. It's all mine, via Chaoscope and PdN.

I found this on the Babya main page:

Babya today released BabyaOne SafeUSB.

Many people around the world use USB flash drives to share and store data-but often these can be used to carry computer viruses and hidden files.

SafeUSB gives users the ability to see these kinds of files and safely remove to avoid further trouble.

BabyaOne SafeUSB offers a simple interface that shows what files are on the USB flash drive and automatically marks any files that could pose a security risk-eg. containing a virus and offers the chance of removing these.

Babya's A.A. Fussy said, "BabyaOne SafeUSB is what we "peace of mind" for USB flash drives-alllowing to you to easily identify virus infected or hidden files and safely remove them from a USB flash drive. We are happy to offer it as a free download starting from today"
