    Hi,

    BTW, what is this "bandaid" you were talking about.

    The # (shift 3) key does give me that character which reminds me of
    old-time critter fences that were diagonal poles bound together.

    Hi,

    Hi, Holger,

    BTW, what is this "bandaid" you were talking about.

    It was like this...

    █████▒▒▒▒▒▒█████

    Sort of like the big bandage I had to put on my right leg, just below
    the knee. I had slammed it on the underpart of the dashboard on my Mom's
    car. The other night, my leg itched, and I scratched off a scab, and
    started bleeding like crazy. Thankfully, I had 2 big bandaids I could
    put on it. I replaced the bandages last night, but I had to put tape
    around the entire leg, to hold the bandages in place. It's not tight
    enough to cut off the circulation, but it's tight enough to hold the
    bandages on.

    It'll hurt like heck when I remove it, for all the hair...just like
    the old Cheech and Chong skit about "The Big Brave Motorcycle Rider",
    who had all this tape on him from injuries. The doctor says "Nurse, I
    thought we were supposed to shave him, before we taped him up!!". In
    this case, you have to pull it off quick...sort of like the "waxing
    method" that pulls the hair out of the root, where it won't grow back.

    The # (shift 3) key does give me that character which reminds me of HG>old-time critter fences that were diagonal poles bound together.

    That reminds me of the cartoon, where it notes the fence was
    electrified. This one dog is about to heist his leg to urinate on
    it...and a short distance away, a father dog tells his pup "Now, watch son...you're about to learn a very important object lesson". <G>

    OK, I see. But why call it bandaid when the correct name is plaster.
    In swedish it's named plćster and in finnish laastari.

    I hope that you saw the ring above the 'a' letter in the swedish word.

    Bandage is named bandage even in swedish and I am very familiar with it.
