Wusses.

There is nothing better than four distinct seasons, sometimes experienced non-sequentially in rapid succession.

Wifey B: Excellent point on sun. We're very careful. Lot's of lotion, wherever we're in the sun. Roofs over our heads. I do know many older ladies here who have maintained their youthful skin. Honestly, I saw more who fell victim to what you're describing in NC. My friends here all are obsessive over using sun tan lotion.

By the way, for those interested, the shortcut for the superscript for degrees, is achieved by using alt key & 248 in Windows, and option key & numeral 0, in Macs.

Oh, yes, sorry - forgot that bit - numeric keypad, (the one with the numbers to right of main keyboard), on desktops. On laptops you don't have that, but it works on the top number keys then...I think..? Can someone confirm that or not. I don't have a Windows laptop.

° does not work on a Mac, obviously, but may well on Windows, so thanks for adding that, stubones99.

And…now…back to a 'bad docking day' - sorry for thread interjection, Frg.
Cheers,

Greetings,
Ms. WBB. No amount of lotion works for me. 30+ years of industrial exposure to IR and UV have made me VERY sensitive to any sun exposure at all. Cover up. If you happen to see someone walking down the road on a sunny day in Lauderdale with a bumbershoot, chances are, it's me.

iMac here, and 'option' 'top numerical zero key' works, but the side numerical keypad doesn't. Thanks for the tip...should get up to 25C here today

Wifey B: A lot of people are because of meds too. We're careful. Reason for tops on boats. And very smart to use umbrella or wear huge cane hat or whatever it takes to protect yourself. We do a lot of our swimming in the evenings.

As to all the ways to type vs. degrees, 4 keystrokes vs 7. Could just do deg. or deg.

Well, today it's 84 today with high of 87.

When I follow PeterB's instructions in the reply box, my laptop changes screens and I lose all of my typed words.

It'll be 75* here today.

Does anyone have a hard time understanding that one? If not, I'll stick with this single-key method.

This tourist-boat captain managed to squeeze between other boats. Probably a common occurrence. (It took several attempts.)

Al, might it be because either you tried the Mac way in Windows, or hit the Windows or some other key than the Alt key, and/or did not hold the Alt key down while hitting the numeric keypad 248 - alternatively didn't hold the Option key down while hitting the 0 if on a Mac.

Cheers,

PS. How's the docking going at your new dock Frgeorgeh..?

I used to use the ALT-248 method at work, but on my Windows 8 netbook, there's no numeric keypad. I've had similar results on previous attempts.

Have a numeric keypad with a Windows 8 desktop, and the degree instruction does not work!

Wifey B: It's all a matter of 's. It doesn't take a to be able to talk about degrees. Actually can't use in that example, should have spelled it out. Now it's all confused. Can't use it to say, using vs. degrees is only better by a few 's. have to spell that out. Seems like has such limited use compared to degree which can mean a bazillion things. Can't use it to go up a slippery slope of 20 's. Has to be degrees there. Now I have a headache, a headache of the 1st .

Good night....

Oh dear Mark. Like many, you were seduced into going W8, sorry - feedback not good. You can blame it for the shortcut not working. Certainly does on W7 we use at work, which does seem to work quite well. You wonder some- times why they can't just leave things alone..?
W8, already supplanted with 8.1 then they skipped 9, and it will soon be W10 or another name altogether, I have heard.

Wifey B: Try alt 0176. 78. Make sure num lock is on. On some laptops have to use left alt key, not right.
