Haha, what a fucking noob! It couldn't be much easier: you disconnect your keyboard, stick two paper clips into the USB port touching the left and right data pins, attach the chain of resistors to one clip, touch the negative terminal of a double A battery to the other, and then connect the open resistor end to the positive terminal of the battery for exactly 500 milliseconds. The processor interprets that electrical pulse as a few keystrokes, and before you know it, you have three @ symbols. Then you delete the two you don't need. Hahaha, I still can't get over how ignorant your father is, OP!

I literally have no response to this. I'm sorry you got woken up OP. Now you won't be woken up in the future about the @ symbol. I hope it was an important email. Best of luck to you OP.

Wow! I didn't know that's how you do it! It's so simple!!! Silly me, I've just been mailing letters because I could never figure it out! Now, I don't have to pay for postage, anymore!

REAL programmers set the universal constants at the start such that the universe evolves to contain the disk with the data they want, #11. A fellow XKCD fan, eh?
