Typing direction? backwards!

Do you ever wonder if your computer has a mind of its own? Today I was sure mine did.

I was happily working. I started typing my user id in a web form, and the letters started moving backwards. As I typed, the letters were heading to the left. I was typing, thinking that the letters should be entered on as I typed them, moving from left to right. Nope, the letters were backwards. I typed Denise, but on my screen it read esineD.

Very weird.

Oh, you want to know how I fixed it? It didn't fix itself, and I wasn't able to find the lone puzzle piece to stop the odd behavior. Logging off of the computer and logging in again somehow reset the computer's brain.
