He plonked you last week, so he'll never see this.
Pretty soon he'll have plonked everyone, and he'll be posting a "how come I
haven't seen any posts in the last week?" message.
Unless, of course, he really didn't plonk us, and is only pretending to ignore
It's a British phrase meaning idle gossip. Perhaps Leon reads
"Tattler", a magazine for idle gossipers. Another phrase we use is
"arse about tit", which describes someone who gets things back to
front....who might also be called a "tit", an unmanly male of low
intelligence. "Tat" is rubbish, as spoken by trolls, and "tit for tat",
is when some tit gets what was coming to him.
You're mistaken. Nobody nagged her or ran her off, and her name is
Marilyn not Maggie.
FYI, she has a history of posting " I'm in a stew and taking a break"
when she needs some time to sort herself out.From experience, she'll
recover her equilibrium and return to the group when she's ready.
nahhhh, I'm still here.......just been up to my eyeballs in daily routines
that would break an ordinary person, but things could be worse..........<g>
that's right! (and that could have been taken as just a slip of the fingers
on the keyboards, Murri.......<gbseg>)
and Janet knows me well........((hug))
hmmm, sticking in the but means you are retracting the compliment that I am
a nice, well intentioned person (which I really am most times) but I
appreciate the compliment that you threw my way...............
she also seems to need
I don't need any special help, nor have I asked for such from this newsgroup
or any other that I may have visited. The only other one I rarely visit is
alt.bianaries.gardens.pictures, and that's not nearly as often as I come
here. This is my neighborhood, and I won't ever be gone long unless the
computer refuses me, and even then I'll eventually return. Most problems
can be fixed. Now if I could only figure out how to zip up JPG's to send to
my garden friends who e-mail me outside the newsgroup, I'd be set!
spring post coming soon as I get the words untangled from my fingers.
Thanks for the thought that I might need help,though. It's appreciated
If you don't know about IrfanView yet, it's time you did. It's an
all-purpose image viewer and basic editor. It does 99% (my estimate)of
all the photo editing most people will ever do: crop, resize,
brightness/contrast adjustment, red eye reduction, rotate (by any
angle), converting from one image format (BMP, JPG, etc...) to another,
making contact sheets, adding text to images, sharpen, etc., etc. It
allows you to look at exif data from digital photos (which contain
picture date/time, and other information about the camera).
It does all that faster than the fancy photo editors.
It's free for the downloading.
True, there are some things it doesn't do, so don't uninstall your fancy
photo editor, but IrfanView will probably become your first line of
editing if you try it.
I have no pecuniary or social interest in IrfanView. I just think it's a
