    private message - username

    > If you are creating a private message from a user profile then the username will be filled in for you.

    The above quote is from the HELP file via the FAQ.

    I just tried to send a private message to Gary Frieder (and now EVERYBODY knows!) and couldn't get the name to load from his profile. Here are the steps I took.


    I was viewing a post from Gary.

    I clicked on his name in the panel to the left of the post.

    I was taken into what I believe is his "profile"

    At the top of the screen I clicked on "Send Private"

    There was no sign of any username, so I typed in "gary frider" by hand.



    I had expected the system to isnert the name automatically. Am I missing something here?

    And I suspect, that if you REALLY had typed in "gary frider" by hand, that would not get to him either.

    Hi Chris,
    (Now that I've gotten your message...)

    Don't forget that you can also go to Send Private and set yourself up with your own Lounge-specific private address book - it's a nice add'l feature. That way you can do all your private e-mail addressing from one central place.

    Gary

    My Gawd!

    For a moment there I thought that was a picture of Slim Dusty, Oz C&W "singing" star for back when I was a kiddy-wink![img]/w3timages/icons/yikes.gif[/img]

    Cool!

    Does that explain why it's upside-down?[img]/w3timages/icons/laugh.gif[/img] (a typical borealocentric remark, I know...)

    Now, for $200, can you identify the other pic that Chris has been attaching hereabouts lately? (since I don't know the answer, probably any convincing answer wins)

    >How came the Aussie slant?

    The image got squished as I reduced its size from many-K to about 2-K.

    I'm Australian, from the Yilgarn of WA. Also Perth, Wollongong, Newcastle and Adelaide. I grew up on a diet of Slim Dusty, FWIW.

    BTW, track 9 appears to have been named for you[img]/w3timages/icons/tonguea.gif[/img].

    Damn but this Internet is a despised thing. Here I am at 6am supposed to be working and I'm listening to music passed on by REFERENCE from someone I've never met, related to an upside down image of Big Bopper .....

    Thanks again. I have today noticed that there's a SECOND button there that returns me to the previous screen!
