What kind of alt codes can you do? (example: ) Just put them down... Completly useless. Sorry if I repeat any.....

(x X) (i I)

There's more just my fingers are hurting right now.....


Remember you can't copy any of these, must be done with alt codes (Alt+1,6,7) etc.

Personally I can't really be bothered with remembering the ASCII table. Whenever I've been coding, and needed to refer to it I've always had access to either a book, or good old asciitable.com. That said, I do remember Alt 255 because it can sometimes be handy to use a space that isn't a space.

I know alt 164 () because it's part of my name on a forum I post in regularly, and I know alt 641 () because somehow I use that character quite frequently.

Oh, and then alt 789 = . I just think that one's cool.

I play around with those all the time. I like to - wait - - aagh! $ no... no... gah! no! ...

YES. Alt 1069. I love to pretend to copyright things. And it was such a phenomenon when I first learned how to use them - starting with alt 5544, of course - tongue.gif

I tend to just use the character map. Some of them i can remember, but i can only remember the code and not whst symbol it creates, so i just guess.

Well, first look to the left to observe my member group.

I was suggesting that the occasional use of capitalisation would be nice. Also, since I'm not a fan of apnea or hyperventilaion, the odd spot of proper punctuation would not go amiss.

Well, I'm sure I can live with that. It would still be nice to see some punctuation other than ellipses though. Reading badly punctuated writing really does disrupt my breathing.

I will also say that once people learn to type properly capitalisation doesn't slow you down in any way. Keyboard layouts are in part designed to make it easy to do with spare fingers.

Sorry to go off topic, but I was under the impression that keyboards were designed the way they are so the little arms on the typewriters didn't get caught as often. There was another keyboard design made for that reason I think, but everyone was used to good ol' qwerty by then it didn't catch on. Or so I'm led to believe by all that is holy in this world, ie. the internet.

There was another keyboard design made for that reason I think, but everyone was used to good ol' qwerty by then it didn't catch on. Or so I'm led to believe by all that is holy in this world, ie. the internet.

The qwerty keyboard was indeed designed to slow down typing, but the shift key actually works by changing the angle of the whole carriage so that the secondary form of any given key strikes the ribbon. It simply allows a different face of the striking arm to be used and, as such, doesn't interfere in mechanical operation in any way.
