Interesting.

I can smile, , and I can make colors, and I can make italics, and I can make bold, and on this new implementation I can even underline! But only if I use the bracket-sequences ( "[-effect-]", only without the hyphens). If I didn't already have some idea of how to make these special effects I'd be grouching, 'cos the buttons don't do anything! (Yet, I trust.)

I don't know if this will last, but, as sometimes happened on the old board, twice now here I have previewed a post then tried to change it, and found that my typing had disappeared. Still recommend selecting all then copying before previewing.

Maybe the Command(o) can petition the Great and Powerful Anu to add 2204 posts to the new post total, to restore the former (lost) seniority.




Many thanks for the kind thought, but I really don't give a .. um .. brass farthing for seniority based on quantity. What ever position I may have filled on this board in the past was, I hope, based on quality - the same as is the case for everyone who posts here.

Whilst I've been otherwise occupied, the board has moved on and I note a number of names that are new to me. I would not expect any particular deference on accouint of my "past glories" in which they had no share. I hope they will find me of value as I believe others have before, as evidneced by Faldage's very kind post.

PS (My stars, what a mealy-mouthed-sounding post this has turned out to be! The above really are my sentiments, but I would have preferred to express them in a less sententious manner, really.)

Have you tried scrolling down, Jackie? It isn't very obvious, but below the preview (and out of sight!) is another panel with your message in it, and you can play around with that to your heart's content. I found this out the hard way by doing what you've done!

The Commando sez: "The above really are my sentiments, but I would have preferred to express them in a less sententious manner, really.)"

And wwh, in a better day, said: "Wordsmith gives an excellent example of a tragic tendency of English to take a fine complimentary word, and let the meaning drift to a snotty sneer. Der Quibblemeister is shedding great big tears.

sententious (sen-TEN-shuhs) adjective

1. Full of pithy expressions.

2. Full of pompous moralizing."

"Okay, NOW I understand the thing about being mantled."

And now you can answer for yourself (crooss-boarding) the question about whether "crooss-thread-mantling" hurts...

JFTR, I was aware of my unwarranted infringement upon your previous, Fr. Steve, but it appeared as though Faldo missed it; plus I did explicate a bit.

mea minima culpa?
