    Editing Post can Save you alot of extra Typing!

    Hey listen up guys,
    As slow as I am at typing there is nothing that pisses me off more than to begin typing up a long post, get over half way through it and look up and see a sign that says the server has been dropped and that my internet service cannot continue. I have to logg out and log back in just to start all over again.
    BUT I found a way around it.
    If you have a really long post, you might type several paragraphs, submitt the post and then come back in and edit it to finnish it up. If you do lose the server at least you can log back in and start where you last finished when you submitted the first several paragraphs or so before hitting the edit button. Just thought that I would mention this in case any of you have been having the same problem.

    5 get onto the net and into AR select the forum and new thread
    6 click into the area and go to the top of the tool bar and choose paste

    If you can't find a paste button either right click where you want the text to be and select paste or click once on the section you want the text to be in and hold down ctrl(control) and press v.

    Hey Dane, I'm with you. I had cable, and when I moved to Houston I had to either get cable or DSL. I will never do dial up again.

    Once upon a time I use to 'dial up' but fortunately I was picked for a pilot project b4 cable was even released. Had it a year b4 it came out, i've been on it for 6 years now and will never go back!

    Why couldn't I have been so lucky? I've only been using cable/DSL/T1 for the last 3 years. I won't even mess with a computer with dial up anymore. It is too painful to watch how slow it loads.
