Peter's Pizza Party ... [Apr. 20th, 2005|08:27 am]
Peter Sheil
I actually had a social evening out yesterday! Something I do far too infrequently.

I was around at Paul and Yulia's chatting, watching a video for a bit, chatting lots more, updating Firefox, setting up a dictionary extension, showing off my limericks (at www.oedilf.com ), deleting some unwanted stuff, eating pizza, chatting lots more - ahh geek heaven! Mind you their keyboard (and word installation) did get me confused a bit ... we never did manage to generate the vertical bar symbol from the keyboard (it is a strange Russian layout with lots of extra characters) and when I tried to do this in MS Word I had to ask what the Russian for Insert Symbol was. I still don't know :)

Yes, it was a good evening.

A Russian keyboard? Damn, the French keyboard is strange enough...

Most keys have three characters on them ... the rest have four!

must be odd working with a keyboard which is in another alphabet. I thought having to use an American Keyboard in my last job was annoying enough.

I spent several months working on a French one ... the top line of letters starts AZERTY and it has all sort of accents scattered over it :)
