For my keyboard it's shift key + the \ key (right above the enter key). :)

No problem. :) :) :) I recall looking for it myself. It didn't help that in some text editors, it looks like a two vertical lines one above the other. :roll:

GrayWizardLinux,

I am convinced that a crazy life is the only way to go. Who wants to spend a life time of boredom? :-)

I won't say that if I had it to do over again, knowing what I know now, I wouldn't do a few things differently. But crazy and insane has a lot going for it. :-)

Fred
Insanity: Doing the same thing over and over and each time expecting a different result.

Democracy is 2 wolves and a lamb voting on the menu. Liberty is an armed lamb protesting the electoral outcome. A Republic negates the need for an armed protest.

Cheers Fred! I'll take your word for it my friend ... that I'll continue to feel the same way ... since I know you have a few on me (about 1.5 decades!) I'll concede to your abundant wisdom. :D :D
