Quoting GrillinInTheEye:Made it through five of them and went in reboot. I'm bringing it back up now. Gonna try and change out his RAM.
Quoting GrillinInTheEye:was pretty messed up last night. Figured I do this sober.
Quoting Bogon:Hey, DAM.Last night I saw that you were asking about umlauts and tildes and such over on Grill's blog. It looked as though you tried entering characters directly from the keyboard. In general that won't work for HTML. You have to use special codes sandwiched between an ampersand and a semicolon. There's a nifty list here. (I left a link to a different list over at Grill's.)For each listed symbol or character there is a numeric code and a mnemonic code. I like to use the name if I can, because it is easier for me to remember than a number. Not all the codes work on all sites or in all browsers. I found at least one case (angle brackets) where I had to use the numeric codes on WU. When in doubt use the preview button.
Quoting Bogon:Oh, yeah, voice of experience:If you modify a comment here on WU, you'll have to reenter all the special character codes. That's because, once you hit the Submit button, they convert from codes to the actual characters. That's how they appear when you open the comment for editing. Then it's as if you had entered the characters from the keyboard. You'll get question marks (missing characters in your chosen font) or Unicode values in their place if you submit them directly.Yeah, it's a pain, especially if it's a long comment. The best advice I can offer is to use a separate editor such as Notepad to compose your comment. Copy and paste your HTML from the editor into the comment box. If you have to change something, you still have the original HTML (with all the codes, etc.) in the editor.
Quoting MichaelSTL:This points to a bug on WU's end in their comment modification software.
Quoting PSLFLCaneVet:Good afternoon. Thought I'd make sure your place stays on the first page.
Quoting Bogon:On "My Favorite Blogs" it still sorts "3 days" ahead of "3 hours". On "Member Handle" you can't get past the first page.
Quoting DontAnnoyMe:I've submitted a support ticket about the handle problem.
Quoting PSLFLCaneVet:Popping in to say: Hello!Enjoy the day, friend. TTYL, GGPBL
Quoting DontAnnoyMe:Problem fixed.
Quoting GrillinInTheEye:Evening DAM, If I promise to play nice can I hang here for a bit?
Quoting PSLFLCaneVet:Good to hear it. Quoting yourself, eh. LOL (laughing out louder)
Quoting PSLFLCaneVet:Morning, pardner! How are things?
Quoting GrillinInTheEye:Hey DAM!
Quoting Bogon:Howdy, Mr. D.Did you get any sleep last night? I don't know how far east you live in Carrboro.
Quoting GrillinInTheEye:Hey DAM! Can you hear me now??
Quoting PSLFLCaneVet:Bump! Getting just a bit weary of the narration....:)Soon we'll be on the next page. hehehe
Quoting Bogon:Ha, using my incredible powers of deduction I conclude that it must be that time of year again.Happy birthday, DAM!
Quoting Ylee:Happy birthday, DAM!You know, with the drought in your area, I'd advise not putting a candle on your cake for every year of your existance! :)
