    Patrick, thanks so much for that. I was just wondering what the Chinese name for
    the @ sign was (everyone I know just says "at" when telling you their email
    address in Chinese ... but then everyone I know speaks excellent Chinglish). For
    those who don't know Chinese "xiao laoshu" = "little mouse" and "laoshu hao" =
    "mouse mark", presumably because the @ sign looks like a little curled up mouse
    ... I think that's a really great name.
