Possibly

a semicolon

You will get stuck if you forgot me :(

In coding, forgetting a semicolon at the end of a line can cause errors.

Use it with a parenthesis to make ;)

As @sid said, possibly people search for errors after writing a code and then at last notice that they missed a semicolon

OMG!! Is the usual reaction after you put me.

Could be referencing the use of ;) in a text

  • $\begingroup$ That last spoiler is blatantly factually incorrect. I agree this sounds like the answers, but I just can't see how it works with some of the more obscure clues. $\endgroup$ – C. Woods Aug 8 '16 at 17:20

    $\begingroup$ Also the third line is not yet explained... Maybe, it means that people search for errors after writing a code and then at last notice that they missed a semicolon.. $\endgroup$ – Sid Aug 8 '16 at 17:24
  • $\begingroup$ I searched google and found that he "deliberately sidestepped semicolons throughout that book". I should have checked further. I still believe this most likely the answer. $\endgroup$ – rlord3534 Aug 8 '16 at 17:25
  • $\begingroup$ @Sid I was thinking along those same lines. That's a possiblity $\endgroup$ – rlord3534 Aug 8 '16 at 17:25
  • $\begingroup$ I found at least 10 semicolons in one chapter, so I wouldn't trust that source. Or maybe you misinterpreted it. Anyway, I'm not clear that line is referencing the book 1984 anyway, especially since it mentions "widescreen." $\endgroup$ – C. Woods Aug 8 '16 at 17:26
