What do you mean? Cool


There are times when I have tried to say something ironic and had it taken differently -- a hazard of text only. The smilies can show that you're just kidding around, but real irony is harder.

Can we keep her? Wink

Oh aye I don't see the reason for the seperate language. I was talkin' about the fancy buttons above the wee box we type in. Wink

P.S. I should note that the above is best received if you read it with a scottish brogue and after a few shots. I am further obliged to note that I'm a full time webmaster for a library system so I am very conversant in HTML.

And my wife feels it is her duty to note that I'm a lazy git which is why I prefer to use the board software. Wink

Consideriing she's a newbie and already using the preferred canadia, as opposed to the vulgar canada... yes, we really should keep her... she is a she, right??? not that we would kick her to the curb if she were a guy... but chicks get like extra points and stuff...

Very Happy ! I never knew other people used the prefered "Canadia". It is possible that I was born to this. That - or someone really needs to appeal to Canadians about changing the name of their country.
Oh, and to indicate sarchasm you can always use
/sar. Thats what we do in my house. It saves a whole bunch of argument time. I'm female. Its true. I just checked. *looks down again, just in case*

Techinically, Ginjg, your reference to what steve said before is correct. However, when discussing sarcasm tags and phbb, one can feel free to use carrots or brackets, since the developers of phbb have no concept of the word, nor do they have a sense of humor (unfortunate lab accidents), and forgot to put the capability in the program Very Happy

Newbie mistake!!!

1) canadia is not really a country... the title "Country" is reserved for real countries... canadia is just a big waste land to our north... they are just a bunch of Nancy-boy Lumberjacks running around in flannel plaid shirts, that can't pronounce the letter "o"... SO NOT DESERVING of the word county

2) we don't appeal to non-countries... rather, we spit on them periodically and tell them we we want, and if they don't do as they are told, we pee on their shoes...

Ransom


Steve, remember, when you post ransom letters in funky type like that, it works better if you're not logged in. Now I know who that PM was from. You're not getting my shrunken monkey testicle collection, I don't care who you say you have locked in your basement. Stop sending me severed digits too, it's just really gross. The postman was all "Dude, your packages are bleeding!"
