This is a poem I read when I was in the 9th grade or so. Eons ago, it seems. The original source no longer exists. But I did save the poet's name. I shall publish this on my blog, because this poem deserves to never be lost.
In this small box, my love,
you'll not find a ring,
but instead, a brave, little bee.
He'll be dead by morn, having given his life
defending his flowers against me.
I felt his sting
while picking the small, purple pansies
growing wild along the roadside,
in hopes of an afternoon bouquet for you.
And I grieved the sting,
more for him than me,
knowing full well the price he paid
for my small pain.
And I allowed him his victory,
leaving his flowers as a memory,
and brought you instead
this brave, little bee,
who proves there is love
even in the smallest
-- Lowell Parker

So Mac OSX Lion has been released, and they (they did not just do that!!) reversed the mouse scroll.
So fine, we have spent well over 25 years learning to scroll one way. And all of a sudden, Stevie boy says that we have been doing it wrong all along.
Incidentally, I was thinking about scrolling a week ago. My parents always insist I am going “down” when they see the page going “up”. So I suppose all these years, we have been controlling the scroll bar on the page, not the page itself. Apple calls it “natural scrolling”
It might be a bit disorienting at first, but it does make a lot of sense now, and my dad has completely stopped wondering why the page is going in the opposite direction!
I see sense in it, and now, I shall try to live with inverted scroll for a week. How? The internet shall provide for me!!
Step 3: Double click the script file to run it. you will have an icon in your system tray to remind you that from now on, Up is Down, and Down is Up! :D
