#1 This is good news. All I have seen and heard are major activities of cells and resurgence of death eaters (lame stream media).

#2 That's a brisk OPs tempo. Good intel? Sense of urgency? Green light from certain sources?

#3 Volume of of attacks on terrorists seems to continue. It's almost as if Osama Obama isn't in office.

Nice humor TW.

#4 I wish I could take credit for the humour, Woodrow, but everything in Post-it Note yellow is Fred’s — and the typewriter font means it’s the auto-translate. My thoughts are highlighted in a pretty periwinkle like this.

#5 Then thank you Fred. Morning's coffee brightened up nicely.

#6 Then this;Dale, you needed to highlight your bit of text before clicking on the link icon, in order to give it something to hold on to, not do it next to the word. But you got the rest of it right, so I could go in and fix it. :-)

#11 Or first write a heading for the link, select it, then press the 'insert link' button. This works too.

#12  >put a descriptor here<

Dale, I gave your link some text to attach to. It’s a mistake I made often when I was first doing links here, so I recognized it immediately. Type your bit of text, select it, then click the link icon (the globe on the chain links) and paste in the URL.

#13 *happy sigh* When someone beats me to it, it confirms I was on the right path. Thank you, Dron66046. (And now I know they’re called headings, my learning for today!)

#14 An overall tutorial of the comment editing engine would be helpful. I only learned recently how to do what Dale was struggling with after TW patiently explained it to me. I accidentally stumbled on how to embed a photo later on but promptly forgot.

#16 TKY for the assistance. I stumble about at times.

#17 An overall tutorial of the comment editing engine would be helpful.

Very briefly, M., as I just poked my head out from doing articles for the midnight rollover:

Under Your Name, you can either go with whatever anonymous nym/nic Fred’s engine provides, or delete it and type in your own (keep it clean — this is a family site), or click on Pic-a-Nic, which will give you something else random from Fred’s random anonymizer machine. If you don’t like that you can keep clicking until you find something you like better, but be aware that I probably won’t recognize you unless you are consistent under a single identity. Zenobia F when he is in poetry mode and a few others (Hemingway, drunk-voice-to-text guy).

Email and website are optional — people mostly don’t give those for security reasons. Safer to share that in the O Club, which is an open chat room, not part of the permanent record.

Icons across the bottom from left to right: Bold, Italics, Underline, Strike through, bulleted list, indent, shrink text, grow text, hyperlink. For all of these, highlight the text you want to do something to, then click on the icon.

I don’t know what the square bracket thingy does.

Foto and the square colourful thingy to the right of it are for adding images. Rantburg's collection can be perused here If you find an image you like, somehow you combine those three thingies to make it work — no doubt there are others here who can clarify that, and then I will also know.

Whatever you do, please Preview your comment to make sure it does what you intended, otherwise you’ll end up like Dale did today, feeling frustrated about getting 90% of the way there without communicating the particular bit of cleverness you’d intended. ;-)

Hope that helps.
