Newby asks "Ping to 'All'"?

Posted on 06/19/2008 4:45:14 PM PDT by Uncle Ralph

In the 'pings' set in some comments, besides the expected member names, I have seen the word 'All'. Does that 'ping' the message to everyone who already left a comment on that thread? How about those who comment after? And are there other 'special' words, besides 'All'?

Thanks.

And FWIW, I was the one to register both all and y’all as screen names. I suppose they technically violate the multiple screen name rule, but they’re dead useful, I’m not using them, and I don’t even know their passwords.

No wonder they never respond!!!

Ah, I remember the old days, where if you wanted to ping everyone you had to enter all their names, one by one, in hexadecimal. Of course, there were only 38 of us at the time, but hey, that’s a lot of 0’s and 1’s and up to F’s - did you know “DEADBEEF” is a valid hexadecimal address? Well, when one of us decided to claim that one as a nick pandemonium broke loose and JimRob finally decided that this newfangled alphabet thingy was the way to go. It worked until somebody decided to claim “A+Bert” as an addy, and then the Internet broke again. Then graphics. These dang kids wanted graphics in color - what, the nekkid ladies made up of ASCII characters wasn’t good enough fer ‘em? Naw, we had to have graphics, and fonts, and frames, and tables, and bleedin’ Watney’s Red Barrel. Some clown would post something in Cyrillic that marqueed across the dang screen and then the rest of us would have to throw random HTML code at it until it went away. Those were the good old days. What was the question again?

Before you may post this message, the following must be corrected:

* Could not find anybody named ‘null’
* Could not find anybody named ‘void’

"Well duh! I’m null and void..."

You don't happen to be related to the Aleph Nulls, I take it?

They're very big in the mathematical community.

It's just a notation when you can't remember everyone's nicks......

I see you were at Clark AFB. Too bad Pinatubo ate it.

‘All’ does absolutely nothing. It’s a kind of vanity thing that ‘All’ might give a %$^&.

It's a little-known FR fact that "All" is short for "Allegra." I get all of those ^&%$# "All" posts and believe me, it gets really annoying sometimes.

:-p
