    Yes, the AltGr is kind of a second Shift, in that some keys have an extra character. Example, on keyboards with Spanish layout the "2" key has the quotation marks above which are invoked with Shift, but it also has the "@" symbol, invoked with AltGr. The "3" key has the "·" symbol with Shift, and the "#" symbol with AltGr, etc. Meaning Hook's BT keyboard has an international but non-Spanish layout (it doesn't have the "ñ" key).

    Would be great to mod the phone stand so it can hold also the keyboard. Then you would have a complete replacement for the F(x) phone, hinge and all < raspy can't stop himself from salivating at the prospect of getting his MotoTool on such a job > :D

    Just wanted to let Hook know, that I appreciated the recommendation for the SFF keyboard. I ordered it on Saturday, and it's already in my hands. Charging it now, and plan to use it with my home theater PC. Thank you. :)

    Our fearless leader (Chen) picking tunes during the first UK lockdown (otherwise I would suspect him of serenading Hookette :vbgrin:)... (It's Twitter, but you shouldn't need an account-- I don't have one):

    Wooo Hooo! Hookette is on her way home with a face lift (new display)! Not sure how long she'll dally with the boys in purple (FedEx) though. :vbrolleyes: :vbgrin:

    One month (since they received her). That's not bad, given the lockdown. Thanks, FxTec. :thumbsup:

    Hookette has now landed in Memphis, TN. Maybe catching some Blues down on Beale Street, or a visit to Graceland, before her last lap home. :vbcool:

    I was thinking this was the effect of Hookette having landed in Memphis :eek:;).... anyway, good luck indeed, be it getting through Memphis or staying there for a while doing mischievous things :)
