    [HIDE]My first answer in 2006 is C

    Then I did a bit of research and came up with this page...

    http://www.wonko.info/cybertext/comsys/comsys5.htm

    Scan codes are bussed to the CPU. If the CPU is told (by an intermediary chip) that the keypresses are of a higher priority than the CPU's current task, it first pushes its registers onto the stack. The CPU then checks the keyboard status bytes to determine the overall effect of the keypress, then looks up the key combination to turn the code into ASCII if appropriate - this character is then placed in the keyboard buffer, break scan codes are discarded. If there was a delay (hardware/software configurable) before a corresponding break scan code is received, the CPU generates multiple copies of the ASCII sending them to the keyboard buffer as well.

    So I got it wrong but I learnt something, so thanks Boyce.[/HIDE]

    i know, but you said
    "the B answers started trickling in"
    which implies that the majority were going for B, and since i have no idea what the answer is, knowing that everyone was going for B would ruin my guess.
