"casting" is used here for the action of throwing out
(by means of fishing rod) the hook into the water when
fishing.


castings

Edited the link to shorten it, by request of Candy (whom I assume had Luke's permission); and in any case hoping Luke won't mind since I am not changing anything he said.

The thread, having exceeded 500 posts, may have become burdensome for folks who have not broadband but dial-up access (yes, Virginia, there are still Modems out there) and so I'm going to continue it on Anagrams V.

(As soon as I construct it.)

Back soon.

Maybe here ?

yes, there .

Also, it's gotten very w---i---d---e. Luke, can you maybe shorten that link of yours somehow? If no other way, then by giving the destination instead of the Google search path that got you there?

Good idea, Wofa...
Candy showed me once how to abbreviate it, but I don't
remember how. Not very good with computers, and
when I don't do things regularly I have the tendency
to forget easily.

Glad for Anagrams V

I am a total klutz when it comes to computers, and no I
don't mind Jackie. I tried to delete it, but it would
not delete, nor edit. I know wofa said to do something
to it, but not being computer savvy I could not show
a link based on what he said, because I do not know how
to do what he said. I will just not post links.

First--don't use the Quick Reply box at the bottom of the page--this used to work for me when I'd hit Switch to Full Reply Screen, but now all I get is a completely white page with nothing on it at all. So--

1.) Copy (Ctrl + C) the address of the link you want to post.

2.) Hit the Reply button at the bottom of the post.

3.) In the bar above the text-typing box, click on the second-from-the-left icon--the thing that resembles a globe. This will bring up a tiny Script Prompt box*.

4.) Paste (Ctrl + V) the address into the little bar that will have http:// in it--you won't have to get rid of that first, I don't think.

5.) Click OK. The next part is what took me a long time and many instructions from Jo to get, although you can see that all I had to do was read the darned thing:

6.) The little white bar will go blank--not to worry, it has saved your URL. Into this, type some appropriate word(s)--the instructions on the box itself tell you to enter the title of the web page you're linking to.

7.) Click OK again. The link will appear in your text box where you left your cursor. In this box you will see a bunch of "extra" stuff--it will not show in your post: just your title word(s) will.

It is a good idea to Preview: this allows you to click on your title word and see if your linked page will come up or not.

If you need more details, holler.

*My computer's security won't let me simply put in a link or an image without opening this yellow bar asking me if I'm sure I want to do it. I just click on it then click the yes option.
