  1. One advantage of a forum is that the question asked, and answered, is current. That's why we don't tell people to search for the answer, or moderate them and say they should search first. Things change, and a certain type or brand of plywood may have been great 2 years ago and absolute rubbish today. A database of owners would be good for mess-abouts and that sort of thing, though, so I'm open to it.
  2. We could probably have a sub-forum with builder information if there's enough interest!
  3. I fixed it but you may need to go back in and re-edit it again for any headings, etc. you had. When you go to paste text from another program paste it in "plain text". In Windows you can right click and choose Paste as Plain Text. That will remove any formatting codes that will confuse the plain HTML editor here. On a Mac, use Shift + Option + Command and hit V. Or, you can compose the message in a plain text editor if that's easier for you. Use Notepad on Windows or TextEdit on a Mac. You can copy and paste them without worrying about any other formatting codes.
  4. Let me know if you have any problems deleting attachments! Upgrading the software had a few surprises in store, but I thought all of the old settings would copy over correctly. It is an entirely new code base so maybe they couldn't keep every setting exactly as it was.
  5. You can find posts you have made with attachments by clicking your profile and then selecting My Attachments. The page listing them allows you to download them from the server by clicking the filename, or edit them in the post by clicking the Forum subject / title link at the right.
  6. [Edit: I had deleting attachments turned off! This has been corrected now] When you edit the message, hover your mouse over the attachment at the bottom and see if the trash can icon pops up:
  7. I'm just very glad someone alerted me to it. Way too much of that kind of behavior in the world, I think, and this little corner of the Internet has always been an exception to it. I like it this way.
  8. You don't have to worry about crass opinions any more. We only have one rule around here, the same one that has been around since 1999 when I first started hosting the original version of this forum: be nice. We have a lot of nice people here.
  9. I think so. I can't remember the year I got the Epson Equity II computer (PC XT clone), but it was produced starting in 1985. The Apple IIe started in 1983. I had to search for those dates because I sure can't remember it well enough to know it off the top of my head.
  10. Sure, click the star or big blue dot on the topic heading.
  11. I went from a Epson Equity II pc-xt to a 386sx that I built ... if I recall, the 386sx didn't have the math coprocessor or was still 16 bit instead of 32. I remember paying $400 for a 40 MB hard drive then too, and was amazed it was a half height drive (about 6" wide by 8" deep and 2" thick - but just from memory on those dimensions). Now I have microSD cards that can store 1,600 times that drive's capacity, and they cost about $30, but I lose them if I'm not careful because they are about the size of my fingernail. Yeah, we are old.
  12. I learned my lesson as well, back in the days of the PC XT. I learned quickly that upgrading an OS is an exercise in futility. The only computer since those days that I've done an OS upgrade on, without also upgrading the motherboard, is my wife's laptop that had Windows 8. Horrible OS. Windows 10 is a great improvement on Windows 8 because, like you said, it retains most of what made Windows 7 good. If I want to upgrade to a new OS I buy or build a new computer. Safer that way.
  13. Looks like it's most popular and most active. One of those "gamification" things to make you more interested in the forum. Like any of that is going to fool us.
  14. Thanks ... my own little mental health project! There aren't many corners left in the Internet where a group of people regularly get together without insulting each other. Must be the epoxy fumes ....
  15. That's what this thread is for ... all of you are my guinea pigs in testing this. Actually, I held back upgrading for over a year as the software vendor ironed out most of the kinks, but the old software was reaching the "end of life" status soon. So security updates would not be forthcoming sometime after that. Let's see if I type some text and then try to italicize a word in it. (That seemed to work by highlighting the word and clicking the I button). Now let's try clicking the button and typing ... that works too. What OS are you using (Mac, PC, etc.) and browser?
