I pmed you a response anyway, but the pms don't seem to be as obvious here as they were on the old board. I'm not sure if you saw it or not.

Well, I started using computers about ten years ago. So I started at least ten years later than most others.

My brother sent me a book called 'Windows for Dummies.' It was pretty useless as my computer is all in Japanese. But at least it showed that if I could actually read what was on the screen I would be able to use a computer.

So I figure things out really slowly because of the language problem. If I had a verbal interface I'd be all right - I just can't get the hang of the kanji. But I'm not too bad with computers these days.

But! In my early days of posting on boards I didn't know how to copy/paste, and used to type-out the whole thing I wanted to copy/paste. Naturally this took ages. But I thought it was the normal way to do it.

....... Until someone told me how to do it. It beats me how no one took the p*ss out of me.

Jeez! Did I feel a prat or what! :oops:

Sheye,
If you knew just how many of us here have gotten paranoid and/or posted really embarrassing stuff online (here or elsewhere), you'd know it's really NO BIG DEAL...at all..lol

I replied to your reply (in pm) yesterday, I think... or maybe the day before.
The only reason I knew you replied was because I get email notifications. LOL.
Otherwise, I'd have no clue.

Thanks for making me feel like I'm not the only one who's crossed the line of good judgement,and made some mistakes.

I think somehow I may have hit something involving Alt or Control keys in conjunction with something else typing too fast, I never did figure it out. Another thing is using the word u n i o n screws things up. John explained that to me and I still can't figure it out why you can't use it. Has that ever been fixed?

You also mentioned not staying around much longer, and I hope you change your mind about that too. :)


I believe one perk to switching over to the new board is that you can say union without any harm.
