hello from noumea

This was all I was able to do when we used an internet cafe in Noumea. The keyboard was all different to what I have ever seen before, the letters were in quite different places and I never did find the shift key or the full stop. I had only paid for 10 mins but after messing for 15 mins the french men helped me or I would not have been able to even sign on.
You learn something every day, and this day it was that the french have a different keyboard to us English speaking folk! the A is on the top line the M is also on the top but at the other end!The @ is a strange French E with an accent over it, with out help I would never have managed to do anything at all.
Are other countries keyboards different too?

Hi Glennis! Right after I moved to Berlin/Germany, I went crazy as soon as I found out the keyboards there have a couple differences with respect Spanish keyboards. I kept making the same mistakes over and over again, until I learnt the new positions :-)

Greetings!

am i allowed to take a auto insurance company to small claims court? The insurance company declined my claim, (I would go ahead and take to blame driver to small claims but I've got no address to serve them or send a demand letter). The additional driver was at fault however his insurance provider claims there may be a difference within our claims so they really have to use the word of their insured vs. my word. I do believe they acted in lousy belief and did not accomplish a proper investigation would this certainly be a valid claim in small claims court? I wish to have some to blame drivers insurer (not my own) to small claims in the damages to my car.

I got a call from my insurance today. I was in an accident and looks like I am mainly at fault. They wanted a recorded testimony on the phone. I gave them one. They told me a lawyer contacted them. I asked if I had enough coverage for this. The response, you have nothing to worry about! When a lawyer first contacts an insurance company do they tell them what they want as a settlement?
