Alanjh sent me a message, he thought I was pranking the thread because for him MY image showed up as the name of the file...

Weird

It is not so much about editing, rather, it's the visual clutter I like to avoid when making longer posts; plus, it's easier to move text around.

Something changed, as today, I can copy paste. Now, excuse me while I go let 'er rip on the topic I was composing for yesterday.

Nevermind, that thread is a bust still.

I thought I could save a draft and then post it from iOS instead. Nope, no dice.

all of normaM's photos are showing up like this, suddenly :135:

Only hers, that I can see . . .

It appears that most, if not all, of normaM's photos are links to images hosted at Facebook. Perhaps you have your browser set to block anything Facebook-related.

The forum is VERY slow for me this morning so that might have something to do with it, I dunno but I'll let Troy know. :)

Don't think we can blame Castanet. People are staying home in droves for self-quarantine which means there are more surfing the web at any given time than normal. The service providers are trying to ramp up their service so we will have to grin 'n bear a slow response time.
