Vita Rara: A Life Uncommon

Where's the Tilde ~


So, I'm sitting here learning some DHTML and Javascript using my Mac and personal web sharing. I want to look at the page. My URL has a tilde in it. That's the way to access personal sites using Apache, and it's the way OS X comes configured stock. So, I hit the number key to get to the ~ and IT'S NOT THERE! Huh? It's a legal character, and it's the method used by Apple themselves.

Apple where's my tilde?

Use shift key

Press "@123" key, then press Shift key, then press "~" (which was "_" before Shift).
