In the olden days, keyboards in Holland still had the british pound key on them. Nowadays they don't, apparantly we now have US keyboards.

What special national keys do you all have on your keyboard. Tell us!!!

We have a Euro key. .

I would have thought that would be more useful in Holland, US keyboards don't have them.

Alt Gr + 4 = Euro
Shift + 4 = dollar
Shift + 3 = pound

as you can see here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Keyboard_layout
there is a dutch keyboard layout. It even contains an next to the backspace key.

The dutchists deceided to bow down before the US imperialists ...

I wish. Actually, back in the days at uni I was involved in a hot debate if it's quicker to press alt+shift+[ or use ascii code alt+123 to get the infamous {.

How does that rate on the 'nerdometer' scale?

our typical hot debate was instead always about whether it was better to shag a young hot chick but dead or a wrinkled old hag albeit alive
after years we reached the conclusion that goat sex was preferable to both, provided it wasn't oral sex

Well done, you are off the scale.
