30. Very well done!"The NSA’s capability at any time could be turned around on the American people, and no American would have any privacy left, such is the capability to monitor everything. There would be no place to hide."

31. This is fantastic, thank you Deadpool.
I think you answered one of the things I hadn’t figured out yet, regarding posting a link. Going to check that one out.
I tried before to do it so that all the html lingo doesn’t show, just the title, but couldn’t do it for whatever reason.
Anyhow, thanks for this, it’s a great addition to JPR.

38. Thanks deadpool
You helped me fix my problem in a very fast way.
You are one of the best at your job than at any forum I have been on.
IMO; you are fair, unbiased, and apolitical. The sv is asleep at the wheel at his/her forum.
Thanks for your hard work and speedy attention to all.

Or Dork either.

42. O-K, how do I talk links and/or html without it actually being done?
For instance, I found a neat trick to post a gif to try and help NJ Cher, but if I had been stupid and typed the two different addresses in the text box of my reply, then one would be a repeat of the non-working link and the other would load as the gif.
What control character insures a line is comment in the text boxes and not an executable, and because I get this all the time in PM’s in PM’s as well.
You know, like the C in column 1 in Fortran, or %% in Latex. I’m paranoid of looking like an idiot so you better do something real fast.
Would prefer a comment character for use anywhere in a text.
Thanks. Get with it. Times awasting.
And don’t tell me screenshots cause I’m fucking lazy and don’t want to have to learn how to do them in Ubuntu yet.
