My Uni has just got a load of iMacs in the computer room, went to check my email between classes on a PC, but the PC's were all booked out. Bit worried about using a Mac cos I'd never done it before, and didn't want to look an idiot in front of everyone! After a couple of minutes of working out what does what (my God, that single button mouse will take ages to get used to!) I picked up the basics nicely and was happily surfing the net and checking my email. Good stuff Apple. But one problem. My email password has a "hash" key in it, and that particluar key was noticably absent fron the keyboard. Problems. I got round it by getting the symbol from Words "insert symbol", and pasting that into the password box. There must be an easier way than that?! Why no hash? I use it a lot!
