    Re: SEARCH for: Post #

    Seven previous replies to this posting and no one could be bothered to correct the spelling of the work "Serach" [sic]. Sometimes I'm tempted to reply to a post not because I have anything useful to contribute to the discussion (like now) but just to correct an egregiously obvious misspelling in the subject line. And I thought baseball fans were poor spellers!

    Search for: Post #

    I'll probably end up embarrassed, but...

    Entering a post number does not seem to function. I've tried entering just the number, 1234, the number plus #, the number plus brackets, # and the number -- with no results.

    Ive indicated the specific board where this number applies, but get "No matches."

    Thanks for the answer.

    It looks as if it's broken. Entering 159529 should do it but it doesn't. I'll look into it.

    Eileen -

    Thank you for your FAST response. Entering 159529 brought me YOUR post. But at least it got me something. Entering other existing, valid post numbers still bring me nothing. Odd that 159...yields something when numbers I've entered receive "No matches."

    Curious

    Ah, I wonder...
    Did you remember to choose "Message Number" in the dropdown?

    Eileen -

    Oops....getting redder and redder, I am. Nope, I didn't "remember." (Thanks for this diplomatic way of asking.) I didn't know. And Yup, I now see it in Help. Thanks to you again, and to StuartR.

    Re: SEARCH for: Post #

    I think that most Loungers (including me) never bother to edit the subject; they just type a reply and hit Post It.

    <img src=/w3timages/blueline.gif width=33% height=2>

    A search on Google on "serach" results in 47,700 hits.

    A few of these are Hebrew:
    <hr>Serach (seh'-rakh) by permutation for 'cerach'; superfluity; Serach, an Israelitess:--Sarah, Serah.<hr>
    But most of them are for serach engines, serach pages, serach results etc. The typo seems to be widespread.

    Re: SEARCH for: Post #

    Well that's a vast improvement <img src=/S/clever.gif border=0 alt=clever width=15 height=15> - though now my previous post may not make much sense if you did not view it previously. I was going to comment it's kind of trivial, but if you were to do a search for "search" then "serach" [sic] would not yield any results. Though Hans has demonstrated that a search for "serach" [sic] can yield many results.... Maybe you should make the CHECK SPELLING button bigger (but am not sure if it checks the subject line too...)

    PS: Glad u. guys moved the POST button away from PREVIEW button!!

    Re: SEARCH for: Post #

    I think most people 'read' it as 'search' and don't even notice the mispelling.

    Re: SEARCH for: Post #

    Only the first one was mis-spelt. Subsequent replies were correctly identified as <font color=blue>RE: Serach for Post # </font color=blue>. Since they were replies to something with the title <font color=blue>Serach for Post#</font color=blue>.

    Good point!
    BTW I love you in that beard - you should wear it all the time; it's very distinguished.
