    I didn't see anywhere in the FAQ/Rules/Help file that we were allowed to post COMPLIMENTS. Only queries and questions and bugs.


    If I'd known we were allowed to be NICE about all this, I'd have .......



    No, you're right. I don't have it in me.



    What we need is another (Oh great! Here comes another complaint and he's supposed to be experimenting with COMPLIMENTS) pop-up window like the one for MarkUp tags, so we can just drop in a regular, authorized compliment without having to think about it too much. Perhaps as images we could have eight-ball spheres, each with a different number indicating the sincerity of the compliment. When Eileen or a moderator has amassed a complete set, they can smash them with a stick and send balls ricocheting across the board.

    I'm going to post my <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.vif.com/users/cgreaves/wolff.htm>Wolff machine template</A>, named after the guy who described the algorithm some 30 years ago ....



    No, wait, I've a better idea. Let's allocate one compliment to each user, and you can send that one compliment to whoever you choose (who would then have two compliments they could use at their discretion) and if you build up enough air-miles ............


    I have to go now.

    Translation: we (among others, we can't take all the credit [img]/w3timages/icons/grin.gif[/img]) complained about everything so Eileen spent every hour God sends working on this 'temporary assignment' as I think it was called originally.[img]/w3timages/icons/laugh.gif[/img]

    That's "guys" in the all-encompassing unisex meaning of the term - as in 'mankind'. [img]/w3timages/icons/clever.gif[/img]

    [img]/w3timages/icons/grin.gif[/img] Yeah, I keep wondering when that bit about dozing in a rocking chair remembering the good old days is supposed to kick in...
