It is also a sad day for the Paragraph. May it rest in peace.
And... the... full... stop... not... to... mention... the... ellipsis...
:lol: :wink:

altair4 and catweazel, now the "only one space after a sentence" is creeping in too. I'm an administrative assistant and create documents for others. I've been told that one space is now "ok". :evil:

Even here in the forum, when two spaces are put in after a period, the two spaces are changed to one space.

Probably because in most of the world, that's how it's done. This is an international forum after all.

The title of this thread strikes me as a bit precocious, by the way. :mrgreen:
I think the whole thing is, given he's never posted and asked for assistance.
Yesterday, on my motorcycle forum, we had to ban a member with 18 months membership.
He was a Stealth Troll, so practiced in his art, that a single post was not enough to warrant kicking him off the forum.

But he met his mark when he challenged me directly in a thread that I started myself, and when I bit back, his shell started coming unglued.

I had received a few Private Messages from other forum members about his tongue on the forum, but just one or two complaints isn't enough....

but, then we started researching the guy, he belonged to other forums and suddenly disappeared from them to not be seen again.... and the language he used on them was even harsher....

we took a poll of all the mods, and it was 100% ban the guy.

This OP's first and only post, seems to me, to be somewhat like my forum's Troll.
Close but not enough in just one post.

Edit: I did a little digging. The proprietor of Irwin Electronics is named David :)

Maybe, but in this case it's sparked a lively and friendly thread, so the OP's intention, if it's what we think it is, has not been met. :mrgreen: :lol:

hi moem...that was for murphcid where he mentioned what i was replying to...
Well it is a little annoying to discover that there are "secret: settings in BIOS that you have to tweak to get Linux to load. I had fits with my little HP Spectre x360, and it was annoying. I hope that those smarter and better at code can fix this little issue with UEFI and Secure Boot. I grant he went about it the wrong way, but there is still a problem to some degree.
note that he mentioned coders and I construed that to mean developers

I’m old, so I still use coders, I am not a complete newbie, it’s just when I have one of those Arrrrrggggghhhh moments.

Well, it seems that Elvis has left the building, and I don't think he'll be missed. We're done here.
