    and?

    btw, to quote correctly, you must give it an end "sign", i.e. what the prog recognizes as such. Edit your post above, pls, and add the 2nd-quote tag, after my text, by typing: [ / quote ]
    = WITH the brackets, the word and the slash, but withOUT the spaces inside the brackets.

    Sounds familiar, no?

    (Also, I added in the end quote to specialj501's quote in this post.)

    Also sounds like my equally fruity ISP who once told me my anti-virus programme was the cause of a region-wide shutdown. Also informed me that they'd tested my line and had max debit speed....in reply to photo of disconnected live phone line lying across the road with pretty sparks and smoke effects

    thanks for the explanation Possibly so... I thought it was an ingame reference, and didn't remember the house.
    And as I have no idea how that company's house looks like (nor do I have any device from them), it's a bit of an insider joke in my view.

    And main thing is that I had a totally different company in mind, when writing this, lol. Much closer to all of us.

    (Also, I added in the end quote to specialj501's quote in this post.)
    fine! Just that the sentence "sounds familiar, no?" belongs in my text and shows very well the advantages of quoting properly from the beginning *G*. Jay (in the next post) had difficulties with it, too, just by quoting it.
    (still, I am a big fan of quotes! makes the references usually so much clearer.)

    Sorry I really don't know how to do a lot of things on forum & if my "fruit" reference was too out there. I knew I shouldn't use the brand name. Thanks for trying to teach me, but every time I try to edit my posts it just deletes them🤗

    The latter is right, and I explained above (I think) why I didn't get the joke (and you didn't get mine, I guess). Barb did, others probably, too. That's the risk when telling a joke.
    As for forum features, you don't want to tell me you want to stop learning?

    Thanks for trying to teach me, but every time I try to edit my posts it just deletes them������
    Sorry but chances are there is no "it", no working against you, but you using a wrong button, prolly not scrolling to the right place.
    Do you try to edit in Advanced mode? cos there the Delete option is sitting at the start of the message suddenly, and the simple Save can be overlooked.
    But in the Quick reply box, when tapping/using the Edit button, it looks like this:

    Screenshot_20190906-195516.jpg Save - Go Advanced - Delete - Cancel
    (tap on pic to see it bigger)

    and should be feasible to hit the right one..?
    Or how does it look/work for you?
