It's called ASCII code. Alt 0176 will get this ° and alt 167 will produce this º. One less number to remember but a bigger symbol. ►There's all kinds of thing you can do. ◄ I've used these for years when I was building web sites. Sorry, didn't mean to get of topic. Just tossing in my .02¢
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

Good info. I just use the word "degrees". Only one or two more keystrokes and a lot easier to remember. :D

Well this has gone way off the rails anyway and I think the original topic has been covered soooooooo............. :{_}: the cent symbol :{_}: :{_}: don't see it much anymore kinda like a rotary phone :D .

On a technical note just what is the amount you're trying to convey there Barnyard? Two Cents or Two Tenths of a Cent? John *.?-!.* cub owner's wife was my third grade math teacher and she'd be giving you a big red circle on that. You need a 0 before the decimal point (for two tenths of a cent) or get rid of the decimal point and the zero before the two (for two cents) You do get credit for the correct position of the cent symbol by not putting a space between the numbers and the cent symbol.

By the way when I do the math that I'm 51 and she was my third grade math teacher and come up with her being 39, she never marks that one wrong :lol:

This is for any of you youngsters that don't know what he is talking about. This is the phone on my desk. Not only is the phone out of date, so is the number. It is from before my move, farther back to before the area code changed, even farther to the old name of the phone company.

Jim, are you still using it or is it "desk art"?

The ringer is either broken or unhooked so I have to hear another phone ring to know to answer it. Otherwise it works perfectly, in fact I prefer it. There is nothing like the old heavy duty components that Western Electric used for clear, crisp sound!

I had to do that to this one. Needed to enlarge the opening for the cord slightly for the modular jack. An alternative is to hard wire the phone end and put a modular plug on the other end. As I recall, I liberated the jack from a slightly newer phone that had to go back to the phone company when I moved. Remember when the phones all belonged to the phone company?

Since we're on the phone subject, I remember when our phone number was RAndolph 4-4335.

How about hand cranking the wood cased wall phone? One real long crank to connect with the operator. If the phone rang 2 longs and one short, it was a phone call for you.
I have an excuse. CRS.

Of course NO ONE ever picked up the phone and listened if it wasn't their ring :wink: on the party line. Now somebodies gonna have to explain party lines to the youngsters for me. I'm going to go sit in my rocker and throw a blanket on my lap, I'm feeling old right now. :(

Yes, and ours was WEbster3-9xxx. Not sure if I remember four digit phone numbers,but I do remember getting phone put in by a man driving a funny looking truck. Also getting a Black and white TV that picked up 2 channels.

Rotary Phones! Highbeam toggle on the floor! Pull and push to preset radio stations! Pull switch headlights! And I'm only 20!

Has to do with the fact my first car was a 1978 Pontiac Phoenix LJ.

I could probably list off some other stuff, but I can't think of any right now
