let's see if this works
Either way, I think this one is going to be a great success.
i don't know why, but the original email i sent had an email address in it and the one i've now amended has the @ sign expressed as "at". maybe it's an anti spam device.
exciting stuff. i think this thread is going to be great, too.
Keep up the good work.
PS. Sometimes all the symbols on my keyboard at work reallocate themselves elsewhere. It tries to bamboozle me this way several times a week. If I reboot it's fine, I choose NOT TO REBOOT! And to spend the day guessing or copying and pasting symbols from previous emails. Exciting times!
the # and £ signs get mixed up. there is a way round this in settings - but i can't remember. someone taught me once.
in lieu of the information that you needed, pressing the alt gr and e gives you é. Handy.
but I don't mind, I like the excitement.
That is handy, thank you.
On a similar note, I'm surprised at how long the € sign has been lurking on computers for...I mean WAY BACK, on really old ones; did it have a previous use in the world of symbols??
I know when I was about 9 I discussed the concept Euro with a Spanish friend (I say I, I mean 'my dad') and that was fucking ages before they introduced it, probably about 1992, but even so, computers already had the symbols in place prior to this.
How did they know???
i am rubbish with these things. buggered if i know how to produce that symbol without going to "insert". maybe that's one of the perks of your crazy keyboard!
the symbol has been there MUCH longer.
You press Ctrl Alt and 4
resulting in the ridiculously annoying " and @ problem.
I only found this out last week. I suck at being a geek.
Fun times, they really are.
