The man who invented Ctrl+Alt+Delete retired on Friday. David Bradley, 55, spent five minutes writing the computer code that has helped bail out millions of PC users, while working for IBM in the 1980s. "I may have invented it, but Bill Gates made it famous," Bradley said.

He helped me out a few times.

Let's all trust it's a very long and healthy retirement for David before his own Ctl+Alt+Delete...:-)

It is worth remembering that Ctlr+Alt+Del actually has a security value to it. It is a combination that can't be replicated using codes hence why was used in NT/2k/XP to give users the logon box.
