6.5 inches of rain since 10pm last night

I wish we had some up here, I have to keep bulling my hound out of the cracks:groan:

This reminds me that I finally figured out how to put a ~ in a sentence, but I don't know how to put it over a letter where it belongs, LOL.


Also, I never can remember how to punch in any other kind of squigglies, either--like when we speak German around here--so don't try to tell me I have something against the Mexicans...


LOL



Stay dry down there!

Are you using MS Windows? If so, which version?
5.) Hunter - 10/09/2015
If you had a smart phone, it would auto-correct and put a squiggly in for you!

Hey, if the little twerps at Burger King can't figure out how to give correct change or get an order right even with a cash register that does all that for them, how do you expect me to be able to use a smartphone?...:wink


This particular laptop is Window 7.

I have an old netbook I use a lot which has 7 Starter on it.

1) Click the Windows "Start" button.
2) Select "All Programs" (if you don't click fast and just hover your mouse cursor over that option briefly, the list of programs and folders will pop-up by itself...either way works).
3) Click on the "Accessories" folder.
4) Click on the "System Tools" folder.
5) Click on the "Character Map" applet.
6) Browse through the dizzying array of available fonts and characters available with each.
7) Click on whichever symbol(s) you want, one at a time and click the "Select" button after each one. This will add each selected character to the "Characters to copy:" edit box.
8) When you're done, click the "Copy" button and the character(s) you selected will be in the Windows clipboard and available for pasting into whatever target document, edit box, post....whatever...you wish.
9) Pop a cold one and figure out the best ways to abuse this new-found ability.
8.) Swamp Fox - 10/09/2015
LOL...
Yeah, I have come across that method, except for the pasting specific choices into Clipboard..That seems like something somebody should have mentioned on Yahoo Answers before this, LOL...I wasn't going to go through all that nonsense, but this could be a game-changer, LOL.

Is getting the symbol *over* a letter rather than merely inserted into text some version of [I]highlight and bracket[/I], or is there some other kind of magic involved?

[QUOTE=Swamp Fox;35174Is getting the symbol *over* a letter rather than merely inserted into text some version of [I]highlight and bracket[/I], or is there some other kind of magic involved?[/QUOTE]

You can't add anything to an existing graphic symbol (letters, numbers, special characters, etc). You can only use symbols as they are. But if you'll scroll through what's available in the various fonts you'll find that the accented letters used by most languages already exist. For instance, the "˝" ("n" with a tilde on top) can be found in the 9th row from the top, 16th column from the left in the table of "Ariel" (the first font displayed in my version of the Character Map applet) characters. You'll see many others as well. If you scroll all the way to the bottom you'll even find Arabic characters.

If you really want to get your geek on you can even get Klingon fonts. Qapla'!!!!

I think I'll voluntarily limit myself to Earth languages, but thanks. :-)

There's only so much interaction I want to have with a damn computer to begin with, LOL.

I've long considered it a fascinating property of human genetics that some of the same facial features that help to make Steve Tyler such a butt-ugly SOB work so well when passed along to his daughter.
14.) Swamp Fox - 10/09/2015
You're not going to tell me there's a Middle Earth or Elvin translator program out there, are you?

I saw him in [I]Be Cool [/I] a few weeks ago (sequel to [I]Get Shorty[/I] which was made in 2005, I think). Not only is he a horrible actor, but it looks like all the cosmetic surgery/injections have been done above the nose, leaving everything else to dangle and flap. Very weird-looking. I mean, he was a unique individual back in the day, but at some point he opened [I]Pandora's Box[/I] and you'd think someone would tell him "No More No More".....

I'm so old I had that one on 8-track ([i]Toys In The Attic[/i]). I also saw them live in Nashville in '78.

This is for bonus points: Did you catch the Charlie Daniels Band reference?

I did not. But I'm going to take the coward's way out and blame that on the wife because she pulled the margarita machine out and met me at the door with frozen tequila tonight.

Don't answer that, DP. It's a trap!

Someone needs to drop by and check on CE. The cornhuskers are headed straight to the weed eater bowl.

I like how they played Saturday..there a good team...have a lot of talent, they need to learn how to win..they could be 5 and 1..next week northwestern, they need to strap on there pads like I used to for..." bobs hardware and laundry" and get it done..they'll get there..



the bug eater bowl is a prestige bowl..
37.) crookedeye - 10/12/2015
the only game I want to win is against Iowa...that might be there bowl game..

I can't look at this thread on my computer. I get the same error you get. I couldn't figure out how people were responding. I can only respond on my phone.
40.) crookedeye - 10/12/2015

41.) bluecat - 10/12/2015
CE, do you still have the championship trophy when you played Gary's Mortuary?
42.) bluecat - 10/12/2015
That was a Hellava game.
43.) crookedeye - 10/12/2015
No that was Saint Mary's Christian appossels...are you talkin when I made the catch??
44.) bluecat - 10/12/2015
No one expected that triple reverse statue of liberty play. Your catch was sensational.
45.) bluecat - 10/12/2015
You went home with the lead cheerleader that night.
46.) crookedeye - 10/12/2015
it was something else..

48.) bluecat - 10/12/2015
Look at you, acting like she was no big deal.
49.) Swamp Fox - 10/12/2015
LMAO!


You two!


I went as far as putting Nebraska on My Teams for recording on DirectV this year so I could follow them and give CE really accurate $#!+ on here, but then I looked at their schedule and questioned whether they were really playing football or girls' field hockey...

I believe both Gary's Mortuary and St. Mary's might have been better choices...LOL
50.) crookedeye - 10/12/2015
UNO hockey..there good this year..

77.) crookedeye - 10/12/2015
my first hunt when me dano ky and his buddy went..we woke up at like 400am..me and dano's buddy went with eli are guide..so we get to this spot and one of the girls drops us off..i get out of the truck and stretch and look for a private place to take a piss and enjoy the moment..before I no it... dano's buddy and the guide are like a hundred yards ahead of me headed for the dark timber, my pants are around my ankles as I hurried to catch up with them, it was pitch dark out..i was like whats the hury..

79.) Swamp Fox - 10/12/2015
If you could convince Luv2 to hunt elk, that really would be something...

You know he thinks coming to visit any of us would be like this:

'You people need a new sheriff..."




When it would really be like this...

I haven't paid attention carefully enough to figure out how I get in and when I get blocked. I sent Alex a notice yesterday or Saturday about it, but I haven't heard anything back. I'll try again.

"Knock knock..."

I'm not sure my latest notice to Alex went through. I tried twice just now.

I got this message:
