### Adding an at '@' symbol to LaTeX

I love Tex but sometimes you just bang your head against a wall because it just doesn't work. Here a little tip, if you need an "at" symbol in your file just adding @ will not work neither will \@. Some people say you have to \makeatletter @ \makeatother what seams stupid to me. There is a simple solution go into math mode
$@$
should do the trick.

$@$ puts the @ in a math environment, which means, that if you want to for example boldify it, you can't.

@something means tha the something is a variable and that you are calling it
Use {@}something, now you can boldify it:
\emph{{@}something}
