Maybe so... but, since I don't really want to insert anything, I think I'll go take a
nice nap instead. Back in awhile folks. Enjoy the rest of your day.

You hit the "insert" key.

Normally, insert is "ON" when you boot up your computer - if you put the cursor somewhere and start typing the text to the right of it moves over and what you are typing is inserted.

If you hit the insert key - it turns insert mode off - and you are in "type over" mode ... starting with where you place the cursor the text you type will overwrite the existing text on the screen.

The insert key is a "toggle" - it only has two states - OFF and ON. Each time you press it - it will change "states".

Toggeling the insert key will replicate the problem
