This Is The Computer Blog

Maybe we should have a computer blog such as the humor blog to post our puter savvy questions as how to bold letters or if puters get a mind of their own. What do you think?

Nana and all, you're welcome.
---Eloy on 8/20/08


Eloy,
Thank you, from me and from all of us who may even perhaps find ourselves too busy to search this html thingy. Much kindly of you to share with us.
Nana.
---Nana on 8/19/08


Nana, Correction: for colors key the tag < font color=blue>then write words or letters you want blue here. Then you close the tag by keying < /font>which returns the color to the original color. You must remove the space before the word font in the foregoing illustration for it to work. Other colors are: navy, fuchsia, green, maroon, purple, red. Just replace the word blue with one of these. You can use < b>bold type here.< /b>: or < i>italic words here.< /i>: or < u>underline words here.< /u>: < font face=hancock>hancock font here.< /font>. Other fonts are, signature, wingdings, webdings. Type < big>for bigger font< /big>: or < font size=4>bigger words< /font>. Just remove the space inside the opening and closing tags after the less than sign.

Eloy,
Please write some tips like colors etc in html. You did before but I don't remember.

I am going to try some of these, and if they don't work, then oh well at least I tried.

Ruben, I made a mistake. To end bold text use /b enclosed between < and >.

Thank you

Thank you so much

Put a b enclosed between < > and type the text. To end the "bold" type b/ between smaller and greater than signs.
this is bild

How do you get the words in bold, would someone please show me....Thanks :)

Pt1
Regarding Bruce's instructions for multiple-part responses.

The way I do it, is first, type up my response the way Bruce does and divide it into parts.

But instead of clicking the back button to get back to the response page, I open up as many browsers as I think I will need.

Then, I right click on the Blog web page address and click "Copy".

Next I paste that web site address into each of the open browsers and hit "Enter".

Jeffrey, Alan, well, anyone: In a recent post I tried (to "pat"), I found you can't start ANY new line (not just the first character) of your post with HTML code! But just as Alan found out, in my post's listing and the all posts listing pages, it did work! I can only say that's part of (a 'bug' in?) CN's forum programming, or perhaps a by-product of something it requires to work.

Come on guy's, do some more of those colors like Eloy did, but with animation. This is very cool! Thanks for bringing this blog up. I bet if you use your imagination, you could come up with something really awesome! Love it!!!
---Gail on 4/7/06


Alan, that one didn't work because you started the post with the HTML code, specifically, the "<" character. Apparently, if you start a post with the "<" character, it gets deleted, making that piece of HTML not work.
---Jeffrey on 4/4/06


Ok, so how do you make Italics? Or BOLD? Or underline something?
I don't know if this will work.

Daniel ... it was not the latest one I am talking about . It was the one on 4/2 when I said BINGO & thanks to Jeffrey.
You will see that it does not come out properly, although it did on the "preview"
Also it came out showing in red on the first pasge you come to when all the recent blogs are show, but when it appeared in this subject blog, it was not in red!!
---alan8869_of_UK on 4/4/06


Alan_UK: I can very clearly see the words red words in red in your posting! Why you can't see them as being red colored, I have no idea. I do know that some browsers display things differently. Most of the time I use FIREFOX here at CN, which I know for a fact will display Unicode in the reply form when it doesn't on final posting, but I just looked at YOUR reply using IE6 and "red words" does display red in it too!
---danie9374 on 4/4/06


Tom, don't use any quotation marks.

Alan, do italics really not work any more?
---Jeffrey on 4/3/06


Bruce ... all those, but I think the most common usage here is someone who because he does not like the activity, stops others doing it, thus spoiling their fun.

Mmmm, I guess Moderator's youthfulness is showing since he never heard of "spoilsport."
A "spoilsport" is someone who takes the fun out of an activity for the other participants by being a whiner or perhaps a poor looser. Or it could be someone who "lets the cat out of the bag" (there is another one for you) and spoils a practical joke for example.
---Bruce5656 on 4/3/06


Alan of UK- "spoilsport" is used in the U.S. but probably not much by anyone under 40. I used the expression "screw up your courage" once, but the word "screw" got edited because of more modern connotations (I think). After editing, the expression made no sense..I have heard that expression all my life, even from my straight-laced grandparents born in the 1800's. And that's probably the trouble. The expression was obsolete.

What is the approved way of showing a smile? You guys seem to just put :) while I give the face a nose, like this :-)
---alan8869_of_UK on 4/3/06


Mod ... my blog says "You are a spoiled sport" I am sure I did not type that, so I think you must have changed my original, which was "spoilsport" This means someone who spoils other people's sport.. in other words a bit of a :-(
Maybe it is just a British word, not used in USA, so iut is one you can add to yuor vocabulary. PS do you have a system which will correct my persistent misspelling of "your" as "yuor"? :-)

Moderator - I changed it because I thought it was a typo. Never had heard of spoilsport.

Mod "I am having the webmaster stay one step ahead of all of your coding :)"
Does that mean the webmaster is trying to make sure we never find out to do things because he changes the rules?
I tried italics following the rules which previously worked, and now they do not! Great fun is being had by all, and I suspect Mod and webmaster are having the most fun, laughing like mad at us.
---alan8869_of_UK on 4/3/06


Mod ... Just joking ... you know all the time and keep changing the system!! :-)

Moderator - I am having the webmaster stay one step ahead of all of your coding :)
---alan8869_of_UK on 4/3/06


Mod ... "I am staying out of this blog. Have fun guys" You are a spoiled sport. particularly when it is something to do with the site. I followed the instructions for red, red showed on the summary of the blogs, but not on the blog itself. I reckon Mod does not know why.
---alan8869_of_UK on 4/3/06


Daniel ... AND you will see from the summary list of blogs that it is shown in red, but not when it is posted on the actual blog! Mod, can you say why this is?

Moderator - I am staying out of this blog. Have fun guys :)

Daniel ... I did just that and when I previed the posting, it actually came up red, which is why I rejoiced "Bingo" and thanked you. But it did not come through properly to CN obviously!
I will try again, copying exactly what you have now written, and taking out the spaces
red words.
It shows red in preview, what will happen when it is posted?
---alan8869_of_UK on 4/3/06


Eloy, Yes BST is cool, but I rarely use FRED since getting into Unicode fonts with "keyboard files" for Tavultesoft's KEYMAN. Oh, you can get D/L the commercial GALAXIE fonts (Greek, Hebrew and some extras) for free from the web site for the NET (New English Translation) Bible! WHICH CAN BE QUOTED AT LENGTH AND GIVEN AWAY FOR FREE. The interesting online Translation and Study Notes use those fonts; thus the reason for distributing them.
---Daniel on 4/3/06


Alan_UK (and everyone): Apologies! My last post was thwarted once again by CN's parser program! What you see at home is often not WHAT WE GET once it's finally posted! I used HTML for writing '<' and '>' signs and CN took them literally (as tags) anyway! So, to get red words, REMOVE the SPACES just after '<' and just before '>' in the following:
< font color=FF0000 >red words< /font >.

Jeffery, I tried to get the words in red by using your method and it did not work. I think I am using too many quotation marks. The way you wrote it is very confusing. Is it "<" or < first and is it included within or separate.
---Tom on 4/2/06


Daniel, I just tried the FRED (Friendly Right-to-Left Editor). It's a great utility for writing Hebrew. You just write your text in FRED, then copy and paste it unformatted into Word.
---Eloy on 4/2/06


Alan, try "<", then "font color=FF0000>words in red<", then "/font>" for words in red.

Also, if you start a line with HTML code, the "<" will be deleted, and your HTML will not work.

But I don't need the 'extraordinary things' you mentioned. Just quote the Word, accurately and in context, and show me how it fits with all other scripture and I will believe it. After all, God magnified His Word above all His Name (Psalm 138:2).
---Jeffrey on 4/2/06


Daniel, the Ezra font is good, I like the BST Hebrew font also. You can display some really neat things with the ISO characters, but christianet edits them out, perhaps because they look too much like viruses. I always use the small letter I when refering to myself, rather then the capital I, but the Moderator told me that the search engines had trouble with that, so I use the capital I now here at the blog.

Alan_UK: Guess I assumed too much about everyone who wanted to use color here WHEN I GAVE my examples below! The "color" attribute must be given INSIDE of a tag! So to be SPECIFIC, you must use tags like this:

---danie9374 on 4/2/06


Eloy, you forgot to tell everyone they must download the 'SPTiberian' font! Personally, I prefer SIL's (Summer Institute of Linguistics) "Ezra" for a free Hebrew font, but both of these can do weird things on a web page if you include vowel pointing whereas Unicode font characters won't. I won't bother using anything except the Symbol font here, since that's included in all Windows OS installs.

I'm sure now that whatever Christianet's 'parser' decides it can't understand, it will either CHANGE or eliminate from your post; most "polytonic accented Greek (Unicode) letters" are unacceptable!

'Moderator - M.P. you know too much :)' If by that you mean I am correct then it is the one and only thing that I do know. I am now completely baffled with all this information about bold, coloured, italics etc. and have decided to just continue using capitals for words I wish to emphasise. It's easier to read also I think. I'm too old to learn all this stuff.

Bruce5656: I definitely agree with what you said! Wanted to add to my last post that no matter WHERE you see *any* _system tweaks_, you should always verify them with as official a document as possible _and_ with those who have 'system testing' experience as well! (I have a great deal of experience in Data Recovery; like after mistakenly deleting the wrong partition, won't boot, etc., not due to physical damage.)

I've TESTED it! Christianet uses some kind of parser that does not like quote marks in your HTML tags!
Also YOU CAN NOT use names of colors in them!
RED: color=FF0000
Dark GREEN: color=009900
BLUE: color=0000FF
---danie9374 on 3/31/06


A word of caution here. This is not to say Fred is wrong for I do not know that to be the case.

It is one thing to take advice here on the formatting of text and things like that. It is another thing altogether to take advice on making system changes to one's computer.
It is not inconcievable that someone could post some damaging instructions here for what ever reason people do things like that.

Again, this is not directed at Fred or his instructions.
