oh and as for the uk keyboards, i guess htat makes sense cause they use ' instead of '' for quotation marks. you can always hit ' twice, as i just did cause i have no idea where the real quote button is. actually i see it but it is third on 0= button and i dunno how to get it to show up. the at sign i dont even know. i have to cut and paste. the čćžšđł make sense (they take up the space for the right pinky rendering it actually useful and the enter button is smaller) cause those are legit common letters in bosnian-serbian-croatian.

ooooh i figrued out the ˝. wtf is ˘for?

They're a Tuareg band from the Sahara, they were involved in rebel actions in Mali and had their music banned and all kinds of stuff. Amazing sounds too, really original compared to anything else in my collection.

And no - I really should listen to more, Volume 1 is good.

Because it's the US and it's not meant to make sense?

Anybody who DOES use @ for anything other than its e-mail use is just an annoying prat anyway. "c u @ 2" - no, I won't; not until you learn to spell.

Fair point.. although if that's all the site's being given, then I guess they feel obliged to try to talk it up or something.

Just make some bloody music already, guys!!

I'd suggest that they use some initiative ... but it's U2.com we're talking about here.

Wood pulp and ink...

I'm just reading about the period when printing was invented, and how the English government was trying to establish a standardised spelling and everything... Imagine petty bureaucrats having the power to determine how we're spelling everything today!

Kinda makes some of modern English's idiosyncracies more explicable, though.


Also, feel free to send me some of that Tuareg stuff, Ax...

Yes, that's a given But I was hoping someone knew the answer....

I'm proud to say I've never watched any of these U2.com vids, or any of these timewasting vids. But then again, I was completely ignorant of anything U2 did between the end of the Zoo tour in 1993 and when Pop came out in, what 96?

I think it might be a leftover from shorthand, like I also think '&' is... and most people don't object if you use '&', although it would be a bit odd.

I know I was using @ and & and that other squiggle that means "with" a lot when I was taking notes at uni.
