Thats awesome! I loved the first time I went to the track this summer, I ran better each time, that definitely makes it that much better when you know you're improving!
Is this only true for desktop users? I can't seem to get it to work properly (or at all for that matter) on my laptop.

Neat find tho.

Well, I don't know about Mark'*, but my laptop doesn't have a number keypad.

Edit: Plus, where did the poster quoted find the small 3/4? I don't see that included in that table.




I don't have the widescreen laptop with the number pad. That explains why I can't do this.

But, the 3/4 is Alt 0190.
