Where did you find the symbol was it somewhere else than here? because I don’t see it in our list of options for posting.
Yes as a matter of fact I have used a non-electric type writer which I find odd considering I’m only 19,lol XD
Extremely frustrating sometimes it was it’s a good thing I was excellent speller,I managed to get the job done for what I needed it for now I have no idea where it is@.@

Well, at least it looks like we found Sockratease’s Millennium Cow… smile

No, but it’s a clue that it has passed this way.

I’m sooo confused…  I’ve come to grasp a little of the nature of reality and the answer to life, the universe, and everything.  I even have an inkling as to who and what I am. Auuummmmm…
But please, please, who the hell are you?  And why are you trampling my roses?

it is just a unicode character
that is one that displays in any browser
all those symbols I posted on the other page are unicode, you could copy and paste them into your text and they display on any foum, email, youtube comment, facebook status etc!
I often post characters on facebook as my status! ☺☼

I was curious, so despite the answer coming from a couple of nice people above, I went digging too.  Unfortunately that page and Google seem to be unable to recognize the character itself in a search string.  Would be nice if you could just copy & paste for a search.  Windows Character Map also got me nowhere.  Searching on Google for “hot springs,” however, does pull up plenty of pics.

. . .

* - That “character” list included machine controls for printers and the like, including enter, delete, carriage return, etc.  This is really taking me back…anybody here ever use a non-electric typewriter?  >D

I didn’t even see an electric typewriter until my senior year of high school (1960) when we got a total of 2 electrics in our school.  I still have a couple of the old uprights hanging around in the den, an Underwood and a Remington I believe.  They still work.  Remember the IBM Selectrics with the interchangeable balls?

Yo.

I really don’t miss them, though. I hated the feeling of getting my finger slipped inside, right between the keys—I was 9 or 10 when I got it—and pulling the finger free was always a pain and half.
