I actually bought this goofy doll and it arrived today!!!!! Imagine my excitement. It's actually GREAT. I am a huge Simpsons fan, am a friend of the creator, Matt Groening and think that the program has actually tacked all kinds of social and religious issues better than any program has ever done on television. I guess because it is animation, the creators and writers can get away with saying things that in other situations would be seen as scandalous, heretical, etc.

So now i am the proud owner of new modern Buddha statue ......

It's adorable - I must get one for my nephew.

I love that the designers gave the World-Honoured One his donut Smile

Josh, click on the 'host an image' icon--which is the 8th icon from the right on the top menu bar.

It will take you to: www.servimg.com

This is an image hosting service which allows you to upload images from your computer to the internet--and to then download them to OBC Connect.

Both Anne and I have used this succesfully.

For some reason, OBCC software does not seem to be able to perform this function.

:-) As Kozan wrote, the OBCC software doesn't complete the task but one can still use it. I don't go via www.servimg.com, which I've not tried yet, but do the following...

Say you have an image on your 'desktop' for display on the forum: 1) press the icon that looks like a pc+disk (if you're not in Preview mode, it's 6th from the right, the 1st being "Others"); 2) press the internal Choose File button; 3) select and choose the image from your pc; 4) press the Host It button, and this will take you to another mini-page; 5) I don't know that it makes a difference whether one opts for Thumbnail or Image here (the copy function doesn't work as I think it's supposed to) but press your Cmd+C keys on one of those two code-strings; 6) exit the function and press Cmd+V, and there in your edit-field should be the code that will translate to the image on Preview/Send. It may be safest to check through Preview mode before Sending, to avoid an accidental string of [u.rl=http... spoiling the ambience of your touching photo. ;-)

Ok, so now we have photos down, how do all of you do the "quotation" thing? I have to "copy and paste" due to the lack of the higher knowledge of how to create those cool boxes that indicate quotations.

:-) Hi Carol!

There may be other ways but the ones I use involve copy-and-paste too.

One way is to type in the quote-box codes manually: the code for starting the "cool box" is [q.uote] (the red is unnecessary :-); then enter the text you want; then type the end-code [/q.uote]. (The end-code adds a line-space automatically below the box, so there's no need to add one.)

Another way is first to type or copy-and-paste the text you want; then go through the "copy" but not the "paste" motion, i.e select the text and press Cmd+C; then press the speech-bubbles icon (4th from left in non-Preview mode, and 11th from right in Preview mode) once, which will automatically enter the start and end codes around the text.

Or you can start by pressing the speech-bubbles icon once, which will automataically enter the start-code for you; then enter the text you want; then press the speech-bubbles icon again, which will automatically enter the end-code. (-:

I've only just discovered that I can "host an image" of the editing-icons too, by first dragging the image onto my 'desktop'! cheers So here's the one I was trying to describe earlier for "hosting an image":

:-) The above methods will preface the box with Quote:, thus...
Quote :
blah
If you want it thus...
Anne wrote:
blah
...(as you may often have fantasised:-), enter ="Anne" (or whatever preamble) after quote in the start-code, thus [quote="Anne"].

When I wrote above that there's no need to enter a line-space after the end-code, you may still want to enter a line-break (i.e start a new line) before the subsequent text, else you'd get...

If you enter a line-space in the text in your edit-field thus...

It will come out thus...

Carol, you can also just click on the 'quote' or 'multi-quote' icons at the top of a post that you want to quote, as I have done here. If you don't want to include the entire comment, then just delete what you don't want. Be sure not to delete the bracketed terms at the beginning and end.

Anne, I had assumed that you had, since when I click on the photo you posted, a servimg.com window opens, with the photo itself present as well.

Thank you, Anne and Kozan. I'll practice!

We'll see if we get a cute quote box this time.

Intriguing! (I've now clicked on the images, including the editing-icons, and they all appear in a www.servimg.com window:-)

I tried out the icon/function on your post, Kozan, and it turned out the above quote-within-a-quote nicely, in one click copying the entirety of your post into my text-field with all the right codes; but my limited experience has been that it overwrites anything one may have previously entered in the text-field, so best to do first...have you experienced that?

Hello Anne,

Anne, exactly! The only reason that I haven't experienced what you describe above, is that I had never tried it.

I've always added new content-comments after quoting. This is the first time that I've inserted a new comment before the quote--inspired by your observation!

After you've icon-clicked the 'quote' or multi-quote' into the text-field, you can add a new (imput) line above by clicking on the line before the first quote bracket, and then hitting the Enter key. And then typing new text.

Which, of course, is exactly what both you and Carol appear to have done above!

Kozan, I hope you saw the piece in the NY Times on Wednesday reporting the outcome of Mayor Bloomberg's competition to design residential micro-apartments. There are some great pictures and stories about happy people living in 275 square feet of space.
