Eh David?

I know you can do (on your new SoD installed 8.1 thingie) currencies in dollars - who the fuck knows what the signs are worth but ... $ ... and, of course you've got that £ (which, I'm given to understand has some "equivalency" to our's which - as a hillbilly I'm thinking can't be all that wonderful since, first of all, y'all buy automobile fuel by the liter [litre ... how's my English David?]

This good? $s = €s = £s?

Well. At least David never let it be said I left you with more than I arrived with - the "alt-code" for making a € is - press and hold down on your "Ctrl" key and, while holding it down type, on your numbers and in succession, 0128. Release the pressure from off'n your "Ctrl" and whattaya got David?

The bluest of the Mediterranean ... or (for these you might have to press again your "Ctrl" and roll your mouse wheel appropriately)something like David, your pensioner handiwork?

Here it is again David:

Main heh, "swimming index finger pressing the 'Ctrl' key down while scrolling your mousewheel."

See David? Even we are qualified to work in our "respective" Treasurys!

Did you see this:

"One of Greenpeace’s most senior executives commutes 250 miles to work by plane, despite the environmental group’s campaign to curb air travel, it has emerged.

Pascal Husting, Greenpeace International’s international programme director, said he began "commuting between Luxembourg and Amsterdam" when he took the job in 2012 and currently made the round trip about twice a month."

If I tell you, JK, that I didn't understand a word of all that you will sympathise with SoD in his endeavours to teach me 'computerese'. As far as I am concerned the 'e' isn't worth 0.03 of a nano-second of my time and so Brussels can print it their way and I will do it mine, that is, the easiest possible way.

And you will see that the magnificent D&N service department has tidied up your, er, profligacy!

Just read it a few minutes ago, Dom, as I was having lunch and the Memsahib kindly allowed me to look at her paper. One for the 'You Couldn't Make It Up' file, I think!

I'm lost.

Whitewall, my dear chap, is it me that has lost you or JK? Or is it simply one of those angst-filled moments that heroes of French novels feel from time to time?

Mercifully, David, you don't lose me. Sometimes JK writes from a little "farther up the hill" than I follow. If I did to my keyboard what JK mentions I would be put in the dock and convicted for some sort of molestation that I would in truth be innocent of. I'm thinking of the Count of Monte Cristo level of guilt.
