Topic: OT: Strange Computer Happenings, Was: Chemex Brewing (10 msgs / 280 lines)
1) From: Lynne
You mean the ": " ?  And I just noticed the ">" on the bottom of your
email! Maybe someone is computer savvy and can explain.
I noticed that sometimes when I use the '&' sign, the ": " results.
Since then, I've taken to actually writing out 'and'.
But - I actually don't know *why* it happens..

I know that no matter what I do, I can't actually see the new topics I start
- this may be a gmail thing. I know I went to the Sweet Maria's page and
clicked whatever I was supposed to click, but it didn't change a thing. It's
very annoying.
But if you can't start a topic - something is wrong, somewhere.
Hope someone can help!

The    is a "space" in HTML, as in a separation between two words. 
Stands for Non-Breaking SPace. and the > is the greater than sign

It looks like you're using an editor that automatically codes HTML for your
special characters. Lacking the same on my end, I used to get the raw code
instead of the character, I guess.
You could look up  and have a
job most Americans won't do...

5) From: Bryan Wray
Wow, thanks for the info.  I don't know how to fix it or anything, I just kind of type away, but at least now I know.  Never used to happen...
Any idea why my replies to topics go through and topics I start will not?  This also never used to happen...

If you're using outlook Express then go to tools, options, send, and check 
the box that says 'send mail in plain text'.  Also make sure you have 
unchecked the box that says 'send emails in the format in which they were 
received' or something similar.
You should be good to go.

I think it may be the result of HTML coding in incoming messages if  
your e-mail is set to plain text.  Certain punctuation marks, like  
quotation marks and ampersands, trigger these strange phrases.

I don't use Outlook, but I just noticed this "Plain Text" link right above the text box (DUH!).  I clicked it and all my stupid symbols are gone now.  Now if only I could start topics... *attempts*

Bryan,
Since the list address changed, I've been worried that my "auto
addresser" will use the old list address. So, when I start a new
topic, what I actually do is open an old post, hit "Reply", edit the
subject, and delete all the content before starting my new post. Maybe
that will work for you as a way to start topics....
