Usability woes

When working remotely, I am able to log into my desktop machine and work pretty much as if sitting at my desk in the office. Unfortunately, though, whoever wrote the remoting layer thought that “SHIFT+F3” would be an inconspicuous shortcut for logging out immediately, without even a confirmation dialog box.

My main applications include Visual Studio and Excel – so I log myself out several times a day when in-the-zone and either searching code or editing functions respectively.

I’ve resorted to taking the key out to avoid the reconnection penalty every time this happens.
