    I've tried this in when attempting to preview the message, but it doesn't work.

    "Go Advanced" -> "Attach Files" -> "Manage Attachments" -> Pretty straightforward from there.

    So, who here is a mother?

    There is a difference between tedious and difficult.

    I sent Prelude a message to congratulate her, but she has not replied

"Finding the smallest program that demonstrates the error" is a powerful debugging tool.

    To be honest, I find that slightly awkward. I don't really know her and stuff and I don't want it to be a problem for her so ... like, what if they took the suggestion seriously and like 20 people sent her a message? That's a lot, right? Isn't that uncomfortable?

    Happy Mother's Day, Prelude.

    I'm sure we all did something nice for our moms.

    I'm hoping I was right ... I really don't know ... I remember getting freaked out last year from what I read on the boards and calling my sister before committing to calling my mother (Mum, by the way, Zac's right). Minor crisis avoided.

    Anyone reckon they actually like the flowers/chocolates we give them?

    I think it's technically "Mother's Day", "M[o/u]m's Day", just sounds cheap and tacky.
