It looks like you posted this JE Saturday, it just showed up in my "messages" today.
I almost never wash my car. Let it rain!
I might as well, it isn't that important.
You must have seen the typo...
Well, if Lo gets full justification I'll switch; that feature is critical for printed books. Upgraded Oo yesterday, and they added a maddening "feature" (it tries to guess what you're going to type) that I can't figure out how to shut off.
You know, danbert8, you would come across as far less ignorant if you googled first. FYI, that link leads you to information about federal taxes that go to schools. And you don't know that the INTERSTATE highway system was built by the federal government under Eisenhower, and that all the states get federal money for roads and highways?
Comments like yours is why I've spent a lot less time at slashdot lately. You should be ashamed of yourself.
Actually, that's a deliberate pun that makes a statement about the vast hordes of non-nerds that have invaded
It doesn't work in Oo. "Save as" only saves as a differently named ODT file. Even copying from Oo and pasting into a text editor doesn't work.
This story on Slashgear about net neutrality showed up in Google News this morning. I was appalled.
Not at the story, so far I've only read the first sentence. "Today, President Obama sided with you and I."
Before S/N opened, I spent a lot of time commenting at
I hadn't had mod points at
That only works if you're not going to later need the smart quotes. It also doesn't work on a cut and paste from a newspaper.
I tried Lo, its lack of full justification was a show stopper. Have they fixed that yet?
It's their problem, I'll just link to S/N when I have an entry that might be in a book until they fix it. I'm not going to take extra effort because of someone else's lack of competence.
The problem you or I can't fix is quoting a newspaper in a comment, seeing it's fine in preview, and having
Yes, if I enjoyed murder mysteries. It was well written, far better than that best-selling hack James Patterson. Stephen King is a great writer, but I've read few of his books because I'm no fan of dark fiction. I did enjoy The Green Mile, though.
Since you're looking to turn writing into a career, you did in fact choose the best genre. I don't care for them, but murder mysteries sell like crazy.
I compose in Open Office. Since what I write will probably wind up in a book, unicode is necessary and removing it is a hassle we should not have to put up with.
What's most maddening is that when previewing a journal or comment, slashdot's garbage generator doesn't shit all over it until you hit "submit". There's simply no excuse for it. Soylent News uses slashdot's code, and they had it fixed within a month or two of opening.
This should be especially embarrassing for what's supposed to be a tech site.
It looked like they had fixed it when I previewed. Why in the hell do smart characters work in preview but not posted? What's the point of previewing when slashdot's retarded code will fuck it up anyway?
For a version that hasn't had slashdot's garbage generator shit all over it, go here.
