Question: :?: what in the world does QFT stand for?

Quoted For Truth

If a user says something silly another user might quote it so that they cannot edit their post and pretend they never said it.

No, it's used when someone agrees with what is said. QFT allows someone to be specific about what they agree with, and expound further upon it.

 

The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.

According to wikipedia, what I mentioned is what it usually means.

According to wikipedia, anyone can alter a page's content.....

David is correct in the meaning.

You can use it to mean whatever you like. That's how I'll use it. :-)

Holderness Coast and the rest of the east Yorkshire coastline was very cool.

You may not immediately think it, but salt marshes are beautiful, as is the managed retreat project of Alkborough. Vast landscapes of flooded plains, broad estuarine horizons, and perpetual panoramic views, utterly gorgeous, and far better than the sandy-golden beaches we visited.

Whilst google maps does give these spectacles of magnificence credit, you can see them here:

Salt Marshes of Saltfleetby;

Alkborough managed retreat project.

When I get the photos uploaded from the camera, I'll post some here.

The Forum is becoming irksome with its constant failings. Only been able to come on for 20 minutes today. Anybody else experiencing the same?

EDITED: one > on

What? You're telling me that it doesn't mean Quizzical Furry Tamarins?

*disappointment*

Oh, Myrddin, you're back!

You're right, that does look beautiful in its barrenness. I'll look forward to the photos.

Yes, the forum has been down quite a bit. :?

I was editing mine when I saw yours. Lucky call to say the least.

I should have the camera back for Monday when I can then upload them to my laptop. I get to use my built-in card reader for the first time, the only part of my laptop unused so far.

Here's a question I've been meaning to ask. How come every so often this board goes down? Is the server unstable or do the admins have to temperorarily take the board offline to make changes? Been wondering that for a while now.

Once again nobody ever bothers to check back a page or two...

We don't have to take the board down to make changes.

All "board down" stuff is caused by forumer.

Forumer = teh suck.

I'll be glad to see anything you are willing to show. :)

Anyone care to join #PaintDotNET? I'm trying to revive it a bit.

Talking of photos, here is one that was taken shortly after my new computer breathed its first:

We have discussed this again and again. Do you really want to loose most of the things posted in this forum?
Things can be re-built. Maybe even better, too.
And if anybody whines about their post count (usernames, yes, post count, no), I'm going to strike you with my staff.

He'll do it very cheerfully, too. With a big grin, in fact. :D
