Thread Name: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
Subject: RE: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
I am in a state of total shock and dismay! Not only did Rapaire and I both post messages attributing JennyO's problem to monkeying around with entropy (though Rap's was posted 18 minutes before mine, it was not already on the board when I began typing - it takes me a lot longer than 18 minutes to come up with that much BS) but I had no idea that the same stuff was treated differently by different browsers. I usually use AOL's browser, but I do have Opera 'cause some wesbsites aren't very AOL friendly and can cause its browser to crash. So I opened this thread in Opera and, lo and behold, there's stuff blinkin' at me that wasn't blinkin' with AOL. I had noticed that the BLINK tag wouldn't work some time ago, but I had assumed it had something to do with the 'Cat, not the browser. Now I am going to have to revisit everyplace I've been on the Mudact for the last 2.5 years and look for blinky messages that I missed.

I feel dreadfully humbled, enlightened and some other stuff as well.
