    What's up with the @ symbol?

    Advertisement



    I have noticed when reading the manuals to a couple of different BB task programs, the "@" symbol (ampersand) is used in task categories.

    That exactly is that for?

    Thanks in advance!

    It's used to divide tasks up by where you are such as:
    @ Computer
    @ Phone
    @ Desk
    @ Shopping
    and so on. If you've ever heard of the GTD system, that's where it comes from.

    Just for the sake of accuracy, "@" is not an ampersand, "&" is an ampersand.

    IN ENGLISH, the symbol is boringly known as "commercial at", but other languages offer more imaginative names. In Swedish, it is called snabel-a , ("a" with an elephant's trunk), or kanelbulle , the Swedish equivalent of the Chelsea bun. In German it is called Klammerraffe , (a clinging monkey) - presumably hanging from a tree by one arm.

    hehe
