My wife is popping pop corn in the microwave. She set the first bag on five and not all of it popped. The second bag she set on six - it burnt. She said, “I have to put the next bag on 5.3, which is half way”. It took me about 0.2 seconds but I understood.

“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?”

ESC = Escape Upper left corner of keyboard.

I’m hoping Dusty is having as much fun with his thread as we are.

Hey, Dusty, just a suggestion for you. Why don’t you see if you can have your screenname changed to, “DUSTY ROAD”. ;)

If I've started a problem, then I ask the mod’s to lock this thread.

Don't you dare! These threads are fun.

Serious answer: the binary string sent is the same size for every ASCII character and the extra characters required for markup (bold, color, larger font etc) are insignificant for broadband connections.

No back to snarking.

I’m sorry, sir.

Your snotty smiley is not recognized by this poster. It is invalid.

Please dial back with a proper snotty smiley in order to be recognized.
