I agree. [In reply to] Can't Post

Sometimes when I'm writing my real first name, which has a "th" in it, I think "I wish I could write this with a thorn." And then I feel sad knowing that most people are not familiar with this symbol.

But sometimes I think maybe I should use it anyway. One day I'll go for it. Evil Sly



"I think it is a sad story," said the wizard, "and it might have happened to others, even to some hobbits that I have known."

LOL... [In reply to] Can't Post

...these seem to be the days of riddles and rhymes. "I wish he would just fly away." *snigger* Sly

Crows and Gibbets! What is The House Of Eorl but a thatched barn where brigands drink in the reek, and their brats roll around on the floor with their dogs! You are but a lesser son of greater Sires.

I like that symbol... [In reply to] Can't Post

... but most of the times "Alt" just takes the focus out of a text area depending on the editor I'm using. I usually resort to the lower case "P" to get :p for the tounge sticking out effect.

To go off on a slight tangent, I also like using :o) to denote clown-ish smile.

I love discovering such stuff [In reply to] Can't Post

I find it rather interesting. And I'm thinking it would be wrong to say "Thank ye" Tongue

I admit I'm guilty of the / typo... [In reply to] Can't Post

... when I'm typing real fast I invariably leave the "Shift" before I even hit the "? - /" button.

Fwiw, I found myself in third place in a "Blind Typing Competition" back in college. We were given a sheet of paper with an essay written on it and we had to type it out with the monitor switched off and complete the task in the shortest amount of time and with the least number of errors. Winning was fun but doing it was actually pretty stressful Unimpressed

Altaira wrote a song like that once [In reply to] Can't Post

All I remember is the chorus:

And they all go marching down
To renown
In the war of the Ring
Hoom hoom hoom


Anyway, GMTA! :-)

I use // ... [In reply to] Can't Post

I was originally going to use just / , but then I saw someone use //, and I liked the look of that better for some reason, so // it is. :)

"I stepped out of my body to let God slide in; although I'm still dressed in flesh that I spiritually died in. Alive in Christ a new creation started breathin', Life exists and through this came completion. ... I'm not that person anymore (more!)! That's what blood was shed for! No longer a failure, livin' life more abundantly, therefore you'll never see me livin' less than victory."
John Reuben.

"Desperation, needing You; every last breath I scream for You. Shatter me into a million pieces, make me new. ... Break me, mold me, make me what You want me to be; I am Yours, for You to use, so take and replace me with You."
Family Force 5.

"Under a light in Bethlehem, I was sifting through the sand; the saline burned my eyes, I was looking for Your hand. I gave up on myself, and left my pride disarmed; I cried out 'I'm alone!' and found myself in Your arms. 'Rest in Me, oh, My love; I have loved you before the world began. Rest in Me, oh, My love; you'll never wander too far to reach My hand.'"
Showbread.
