Strange...Recently, I've been typing posts giving long explanations of how to do something and after all that work, the forum doesn't let me submit it. I've got around the problem by sending a random oneword post, then editing it with my real post, but still... odd. Has this happened to anyone else? Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal. #2 20051007 17:54:09

Re: Strange...Congratulations Rod! You broke the record for the longest post! School is practice for the future. Practice makes perfect. But  nobody's perfect, so why practice? #5 20051206 06:05:49

Re: Strange...I think I've figured out what's happening. Whenever I use the symbol ≈, copied and pasted from the top, in a post then it doesn't like it. I have no idea why that is.

Re: Strange...OK, probably just general vagaries. Maybe something to do with something that sends something that something else doesn't like. "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #9 20051211 13:12:53
Re: Strange...It has happened to me on several occasions, but it seems more prevalent when using the "Post reply" screen than the small quick post area.
