To do this one thing, scroll down that far!


I know this will sound incredibly rich coming from arguably one of the most verbose bloggers on the planet, but hypocricy isn’t the only river in Egypt. Wait, that’s not how that goes.

I needed a specific key command to break out of a console in a certain hypervisor. I couldn’t rememeber what it was, so I searched online and found someone’s site explaining it.

From the top of the page to where the key combination was, it was:

  • six presses of the spacebar
  • four banners
  • 180 words
  • one slideout chatbot
  • one newsletter popup

Lesson learned: if I need to share a tip or remember something here, I’ll put it at the very top of the post, then explain after.
