I suppose it would be just as "distasteful" to do it that way as the way it's typically done. Oh well, it doesn't matter, I just wanted to see how it would look.

Linking to a specific post:

That way the person you pass the URL to doesn't have to dig down through a long thread to find a specific post.

In use: http://ths.gardenweb.com/forums/load/html/msg0914532914443.html?17#GWCPostTitle11

Just an observation but looking at the result, I can tell it refers to reply number 11 of 17 in the target thread(at the time the URL was constructed). A possible snag would be... if a preceding reply gets deleted, does the URL break?

I think the gardenweb uploader will accept a file up to 5,000 kilobytes.

After you upload it though, it gets resized to a width of 640px which is then displayed at 550px.

If you need to show greater detail, t's probably best to use Photobucket (or other) to post a thumbnail that links to a larger image?

Just wanted to see what that looked like. :)

Long strings being chopped?

Edit: Long strings are no longer being broken. When first posted, a space was added every 40 characters.

Playing a song encoded in FLAC and located in a network share. Using three of my favorite media players.

Results:

Media Player Classic(older version)...
- Won't play FLAC, at least not by default.
- 00% CPU (It's not playing anything)
- 11,564 K memory usage

VLC...
- Plays FLAC.
- 19% CPU
- 37,448 K memory usage

Foobar2000...
- Plays FLAC.
- 00% CPU (And it IS playing)
- 18,316 K memory usage

Conclusion:

Nothing really. I already knew I loved Foobar, so my conclusion would be too biased. :)

BTW, that's 2003 Server R2 running in Oracle VirtualBox. Three processes are the three players, a couple are VirtualBox add-ons. Still only 30 processes. Only 512 MB of RAM and still, it has that snappy quick responsiveness that will make me sad to see it go. :(

So... it won't. :)

stylingBookmarklet

Won't really do much in this thread because it's already styled. It can be dragged to your bookmark toolbar and used in other threads though. It just widens, changes colors a bit and cleans up a little. It's not that thorough, and could be cleaned up, but it's sorta interesting?

When I was perhaps 12-14 years old, a friend and I went back to the head of the holler behind his house to... explore... swing on our grape vines... whatever and as we neared the holler we saw a big black cat jump up the side of a tree and climb on up, but the details are foggy. We quickly canceled our foray and headed back to his house. I suppose we probably told his parents, brother, whatever, I don't remember but I "think" we were believed because there were tails of a black panther, and although I can't say I personally ever remember hearing it, my dad said he had heard it screaming back in the woods before.

Years went by, I moved away to work, never really spoke of it again, at least not to anyone from around there that would know. As the years passed, doubts crept in, did we really see it? Was it really a panther? Was it just OUR joint imaginations? :)

Many years later I moved back "home", took a temporary position, and mentioned it to a guy at work. "Sure, that must have been back in late 60's" he said, and "so-and-so finally shot that thing after it got in his chickens" he said.

It was good to know that it really wasn't just our imaginations.

That was so long ago though that it seems more like a dream, and it wasn't really a panther/cougar, at least not an American one. It was some exotic African(?) panther that someone had and it got loose, at least that's what I think the guy said.

So the little Bobcat in the photo above, sitting on the far bank of the little canal, watching me watch/photograph it, was kinda like a first for me. Sorta like the first truly wild big cat I've ever seen(in the wild that is). This thing even waited patiently after I spotted it while riding bike for me to go home, grab my camera, jump on the scooter and go back to take it's picture. It looked so... tame? Of course I know it's not and I wouldn't want to mess with it. I don't know if it lives nearby or was just passing though.

Below is an image located at https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-0VfCu7XD6bs/UP6yoHCrVSI/AAAAAAACOto/ZH4CvpLirkc/w702-h465-no/Svev3-XnyLk.jpg posted without quoting the URL. Let's see how it gets mangled.

Okay, although it previewed okay, once submitted, the resulting HTML turned into this:

Whether using the form &#123; or &lcub;, I still can't get a curly bracket past "preview".

Creates a thumb 1000px wide if it starts out wider. Holds that 1000px thumb at 550px until hovered at which time it expands to 1000px. The original full-sized image is available by left-clicking. Images are properly oriented when needed.
