Why Can't You Fuckers Get the Formatting Right? Love Kimmie. And Here's a Photo of Me on a Bike.

I was wondering if it’s possible that someone could handle the formatting of my texts. I used to be able to do that when I had my own posting rights, but now I have to leave it up to the whims of the crazy email system where I <i>literally</i> have no confidence that what I put on MY screen will end up on yours.<o:p></o:p></div>

It makes a guy wanna cry.<o:p></o:p></div>

Not me, but a guy.<o:p></o:p></div>

  4. Hi, Kimmie! That's some um, interesting, html you've got there. I'm afraid I don't read the language quite enough to imagine the intended result, but it's good to hear from you (and I'm sorry to miss the picture of you on a bike).

    I've been getting more or less the result I intended by sending messages to sparky composed in and sent via gmail, but I'm not sure how much cleanup there has been on the receiving end.

  7. Nearly everything requires editing. Most common is taking out fancy fonts. Anything written in Word is a nightmare. Some posts take as much as 5-10 minutes to reformation. Stuff written in email is easiest. When people try to embed links it can be difficult.

    1. Email should send text. Every attempt to make it "better" by changing that has simply increased the number of good ideas that result in trainwrecks because no one knows what their mailer actually does.

      My place makes me use f(*&ing Outlook Express which is forever thinking it knows what I want better than I do.

      Oh, pine! How I pine for thee!

    2. Oh, my. pine. I haven't thought about that for years. But yes, it just plain worked, even for a newbie like me (of course, I was a newbie who was used to typing in a bunch of commands in the process of getting my PCjr to boot up and load Wordstar, but still. . .life was simple then).
