Thanks so much for the explanation!

7. Good Timing

Your website reconfiguration coincided beautifully with a cable outage in my area, so I had no other recourse than to abandon my two new loves and return for the evening to my first: books. The local library sells culled books 5/$1 and I prefer older literature anyway, so my big house is crammed with so many volumes I'll never get through all of them. Normally I used to polish off at least 2 a week, but since finding DU it's turned out more like 2 chapters a week, and it's all your fault!

Regardless, it would be lovely if at some time we could be favored with a strike-through key because it's so much snarky fun to type in one polite (?) word, usually GOP preferred, then strike it through and replace it with a more suitable choice. Shows more contrast that way.

BTW, thanks also for the superb selection of smilies.

8. [strike]Text[/strike]

You can do crossed out strike-through text in posts here (but not subject lines), although you have to type the code in since there is no handy button for it. Other things that can be done by typing in code - see here:

Free Republic has shown that you only have to update software once every ten years to have a new, exciting, hip-looking website.

15. Viewing the 2nd page on my Recommendations tab?

Just noticed that when I go to my profile and view the recs tab, clicking the link to advance to page 2 takes me back to the Profile tab instead...
