      Apparently too tired on Friday evening :))) I found it difficult to figure
      out what I meant by "MANAGED" in my previous posting before I realized it is
      a typo of "DAMAGED" :))

      Hana, as far as I know, the Americans say 86 when they refer to something
      broken or managed. "It is 86", "to 86 something", etc. in all different
      forms. There might be some connection to this. (For a French guy, I would
      rather expect 69, though :)) Magda

      Hello all,
      has anyone ever heard the term "seventy-six" meaning the "at" sign (@)? A
      student said her French friend uses it all the time. Is it English or
      French?

      TIA

      Hanka
