@ sign added to Morse Code

Somehow this morning Jeff and I got on the topic of Morse Code and he mentioned that the @ sign was just added for email addresses. I wondered why you couldn’t just signal “at” instead of adding a new symbol, until I realized that my email address would render as [email protected] or [email protected] (which Jeff suggested would be the blogger at a site about unfortunate tattoos).

You were the one who suggested that. You’re too modest. 🙂
