    The same with me. Must have to do with that 50+ count deal.

    I couldn't even post my desktop PC specs, because they were interpreted as links.

    If you try to put anything in with an @ symbol in it, the site interprets as a link. What can I say. Simple site for us simple minds. At least for my simple single functioning brain cell.

    It'll be OK. Once we get that 50 post count behind us, those things will go away.

    Cat, we could sit here and chat, back and forth, till we both hit the fifty post landmark. Eh?

    Y'all can still do links, sort of, just by replacing key items with (text) inside of (brackets).

    like this: joeschmoe(at)bergermeister (dot) net
    or (WWW)(dot)thegeek(dot) net

    There are many occasions when a little masking of things like email addy's or URL's is desirable.

    Ok, that's my "Tip of the Day".

    TM, that's a very useful tip for this situation.

    Will do that when I need to do a link. Usually, when I give out important info, I do like to backup what I'm stating with some kind of reference. So that what I'm saying is credible.
