I'm pretty sure the # sign is shift 3 not option 3 also if you are using the # sign for string interpolation you can end the string and use a + sign then the variable then another + sign and continue the string

Hey, its on a Mac (United Kingdom) tried it not sure why.

You don't need the # sign as I said earlier you can use a + sign. example: puts "your name is: " + name
