Chris told me about the threaded stuff once but when I clicked the un-threaded to see if it worked, it wouldn't change. My mistake I'm sure.

Try being in the screen where you can view all the messages on the board, instead of being inside one individual message. You'll see the difference when you switch.

Also, I have read everything about italics and bold type but can't find out how to cut and paste! I think it's a plot to destroy the little sanity I have left.

I am going to assume that you're running Windows -- if not, tell me what system you're on.

Highlight the text you want to copy (drag a selection with your mouse). Then, right click your mouse on the selection and choose "copy" or "cut". Right click on the place where you want to paste, and choose "paste".

You can also you hot keys, like I do -- ctrl+c is copy, ctrl+x is cut, and ctrl+v is paste.

Also, as long as I'm confessing ignorance--how would I get a web page on here? I can do it with e-mail, not this.

How do you refer a web page in your post? Just copy the address from your browser, and paste it into your message. When your message displays, it will automatically be a link. Just make sure you start with either "http://" or "www.".

Thank you though for the info. I have a background in FORTRAN, COBOL(SPELLING?), and BASIC. Wish I didn't. Just interferes with learning this.

Ah, an old schooler! ;)
