A question on two Edit Profile items Can't Post

One of them is 'Send reply notification checked by default'. I thought that when I choose this one, a notification gets sent to my email whenever there's a reply to a post made by me; but that doesn't seem to be the case. Can someone tell me what this option is for?

The other slot I'm wondering about is 'Less Filling or Tastes Great' - what does it refer to?

"A journalist once asked me what I would like my epitaph to be and I said I think I would like it to be 'He did very little harm'. And that's not easy. Most people seem to me to do a great deal of harm. If I could be remembered as having done very little, that would suit me." ~ Paul Eddington

An answer or two [In reply to] Can't Post

1) You're correct. "Send reply notification by default" should send replies to your posts to your registered email. If you're not getting them, make sure you're checking the email account you registered with, and you may also need to add theonering . net to your 'allowable' email addresses, other wise they could be being blocked or sent to your spam folder.

2) You have to be of a certain age to know about this first hand - but Google yields many answers. It's really just a lighthearted joke that was carried over from the old TORn boards.

Hope that helps! Smile

I always understood it as refering to: [In reply to] Can't Post

Only those, what d'you call 'em, lembas, Mr. Frodo. A fair supply. But they are better than naught, by a long bite. I never thought, though, when I first set tooth in them, that I should ever come to wish for a change. But I do now: a bit of plain bread, and a mug--aye, half a mug--of beer would go down proper.

This waybread keeps you on your legs in a wonderful way, though it doesn't satisfy the innards proper, as you might say: not to my feeling anyhow, meaning no disrespect to them as made it.



Oh well. What do I know.

You know, I originally thought it was something from the books as well... ;) [In reply to] Can't Post

... and it made me quite annoyed with myself for not having an inkling where in LotR it came from.
I just hope there isn't any hidden meaning to 'cabbages and potatoes or elves and dragons' as well; I felt pretty sure about that one. Wink

Cabbages and Potatoes? [In reply to] Can't Post

“Elves and Dragons! Cabbages and potatoes are better for me and you. Don't go getting mixed up in the business of your betters, or you'll land in trouble too big for you.

~Hamfast Gamgee (the Gaffer)” Fellowship of the Ring


'"Never laugh at live dragons, Bilbo you fool!" he said to himself, and it became a favourite saying of his later, and passed into a proverb.'
