    It really depends how you normally fire sarcasm at someone. If you, like me, don't change how you are talking when you use sarcasm, then you're right, but some people embellish and inflect their voice in the hope of showing the sarcasm. So, depending on who you are ... either's good.

    I was referring to forum text, not speech.

    For me, it depends on the situation.

    Well, I think they both have parallels .... If someone does it one way in speech, why not in text, and in this bad-assified new version of the forums

    The ability to split a thread into two seems to be missing at the moment.
    I'm fairly sure it was present just after the upgrade, but it seems to have gone now
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    I prefer sarcasm when the target doesn't get it. Sure, it's absolutely ineffective at that point, but it gives everybody else a good laugh.

    Salem, I think you're just slowly losing your moderative powers. Soon you'll just be a normal member like us... just wait...

    Maybe you were demoted.

    ... Please don't hurt me...

    As for sarcasm... see that little bar on the right side of this post? See the name SlyMaelstrom? That's what I use to indicate sarcasm.

    EDIT: Oh, and since this is the topic of errors. I might as well mention that you can't copy code that has been editted into the post using the new edit feature. I'm under Windows XP using Firefox 1.5.0.4
    Code:
    This is from the new edit feature. Try copying this.
    You can however copy code if it's done in the old edit page.

    Hmmm... I see. It does work now. Then the "acutal issue" is... you can't copy text that has been inserted via the new edit system without first refreshing the page. Not an issue unless you're the one pasting it. However, try editting your post and copying the editted text before refreshing the page.

    I guess that makes sense since the application doesn't officially recognize the text until it's been sent from the server.... err or something.

    That may have something to do with it ... forum games and whatnot.

    (as in mind games, but on the forum. Making you think there's a bug while there's actually not)

    My message tracking seems to no longer work.
    7. It is easier to write an incorrect program than understand a correct one.
    40. There are two ways to write error-free programs; only the third one works.*

    I think it was resolved in FF and IE6, but in IE7, you know the left indicator of the author with Join Date, Lovation Posts, avitar etc. It's still kinda irregular ....

    IE 6, Win XP Pro

    I've a situation: I think some of my posts are going missing. I'm pretty sure I
    posted in this thread last night. I've come up with the following possibilities:

    1. Mod deleted it (in which case, why? It wasn't an offensive post)
    2. The board has a problem
    3. I didn't post in it and I am losing my mind

    Now while all 3 are possible, has anyone else had this problem? This is the
    second time this has happened, so I'm not sure what's going on. Maybe it has
    something to do with me staying signed in and turning off the computer?

    Also, and this is definitely happening, but when typing a longish reply, something
    that takes a few minutes, if I press the preview button, it sometimes asks me to
    sign in again (despite being signed in already). It's normally fine, and the thread
    preview works, but other times it'll say "Invalid thread", or something to that
    effect, and I lose all I typed!
    No No's:
    fflush (stdin); gets (); void main ();

    Example of fgets (); The FAQ, C/C++ Reference

    Don't know about the rest, but to solve this one, which I experienced too, sign in with the "remember me" box ticked. Otherwise your login will silently expire after a few minutes.
    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    Yeah, I had to to that too. My in my experience, it was much more severe - login lasted about one second. Click the remember me and you'll be fine Richie! Don't worry!

    EDIT - I wouldn't really call it a bug, just some inconsistency. When one quick replies to something, it puts the new post there, and the person's posts have been updated. However, if they had replied to the same thread, and a previous post of theirs is on the same page, the post counts are different.

    One other thing -

    If I'm surfing the threads, and a new one comes up in the GD (or something), and instead of clicking on 'General Discussion' and then clicking on the new thread's name or whatever, I click on the name of the new thread (or the reply to that thread), to the right of the 'General Discussion', cell, and read it, and if I then click on the 'C Board' thing to get back to the index, I can see the little yellow square indicating there are some unread threads in the forum ... which there are not. This happens with all the threads and sub-forums. Try it! Also, it happens if you have posted a new thread, or a reply, that it looks unread to you, while you have actually read it ... get me?
