Will posting in all capital letters, eat up more bandwidth.
NO NO NO NO NO NO NO!!!!!!
It is I, Gramma of Brad, NOT that other long-gone-freak-a-zoid!
You mean the one about "It's not the size of the pen you use, but how you sign your name?"
Go to your ROOM!!!!
Serious response: your hunter friends are probably lazy. They don’t want to worry about capitalizing, ever, like when teens text each other. I think you should ban the use of all caps on your forum, because it is far harder to read.
And realize that simple questions on FR are soft pitch “straight lines” to all of the FReepers not currently offered lucrative comedy shows on the Vegas Strip. It’s just a way to have fun. Enjoy.
Oh, Sion.....Can this be January?
Can it please?
May there be many others....
Merry CHRISTmas, IOWAfan!
It’s not the volume, it’s the loudness.
hint: it’s not really upside down.
Aha, I KNEW it!!
Had no idea it would turn into this.
So what do I do? Turn the laptop upside down to type??
Do you realize how hard that’ll be when I’m using the PC and NOT the laptop?
Come on now! :)
The Mods are off today (no puns about always being off) so I’m going to fill in for them. Here goes!
Yes, you do need a little help and that’s just what you’re going to get... a little help, very little and worth every penny!
Just turn the monitor off while you type and the whole question will resolve its self like globular worming.
Whoops! One of the Mods just came in.. gotta go..bye.
BRAVO! Tremendous. I haven’t seen such ASCII dedication in ages!
Don’t stress, it just gives the denizens something to amuse themselves with on a slow news day. Much like when John Mark Carr was identified in Thailand and everybody repeated “Thailand?” and it went into Freeper legend.
I DON’T KNOW
Don’t worry.....it’s my turn. Now they’re picking on me w/the upside down font.
I agree with Yaelle....tell them to knock it off, turn OFF that feature on your forum...however you do it. It IS hard to read!!!
Oh boy..... could be one of those threads...........
Oh, sure, get us all started, and then take your ball and go home?
I THINK NOT!
(in my best achmed the dead terrorist voice)
(giggling...) "Make me!"
Plus aren't we on this thread to try and save JimRob some extra money?? Aren't we SAVING THE PLANET HERE?? Do you have a CLUE how many carbon pixels we could have wasted, had this topic not come up?? What, do you want our East Coast FRiends to have worse blizzards than they already have?? ;)
Carbon offsets were purchased from Goreco.com for each capitalization used in this post.
“Yes. And it requires more ink.”
Save the planet! Type in itty bitty fonts! Sheesh.
I once owned a Comma, not a bad car until I got it home.
but are you Classy and Green-eyed? :)
too late you are working on a classic now.
It would but you can continue to use Caps even in Bold as long as you post in invisibility font. For example, I'm going to post the entire Constitution of the United States in Caps, Bold and Font size of 24. But utilizing the invisibility font, there will not be be any more bandwidth used than if you were to post another nonsensical thread such as this. OK, here we go:
See? What did I tell you?
So, If you're concerned about bandwidth on your future thread postings such as this one, I would suggest you use the Invisibility font...........
“I once owned a Comma, not a bad car until I got it home.”
What happened? Did your hubCAPS LOCK? Maybe your SHIFT didn’t work? Did you trade it in for an Ford ESC?
No! No! No! Just the key board -— Not The Whole PC! The PC will leak memory upside down.
Blue jeans and tennies. Wet hair.
Nope on all counts. ;)
Ahhhhhhh......makes PERFECTLY GOOD SENSE!
Now, what about the memory on the laptop? You may answer later. I must run now. Dogs to feed, take to vet, me to feed, drive dogs to vet. I Have Things To Do Today.
Then, to Yaelle's for dinner! YEA!!!!!
What an interesting question. Dusty, if you were a girl I’d kiss you.
no it doesn’t.
Vowels: The other LOCKED CAPS.
hEY, i HAD ABOUT 500 X’S AND O’S AFTER MY FIRST SENTENCE IN THE POST
No, I found an alternate with some backspace that I could control but I’ll pause here.
ESC? Is that esclamation?
Ya think dusty has had enuff?
More zeros and ones, yes it do.
Would that be the same with letters or pixels?
