Often just after I've hit the reply button and I try to copy a bit of the post to reply to, what I end up with on my clipboard is the whole post plus the thing I copied. It seems to "helpfully" put the post I want to respond to on my clipboard, but then it doesn't overwrite it when next I try to copy something else. Indeed, if I try to copy the whole post, I often get it twice.
For example, I just went to this post, tried to copy the last line of it, pressed Ctrl+V, and got this:
quote:It would be harder if they DIDN'T share any parts.
What information is genes telling you?
The same information that everything in the universe has. Humans look at stuff and extract information from them in order to determine their state and their origin. This is true of rocks, clouds, and life. Same type of information in all of them.
My understanding is you are only able to see what the protein makes in the form of bone, tissue etc.
We are able to determine the DNA sequence which tells us how long it has been since two species shared a common ancestor. The more distant that common ancestor the more the DNA sequences for a shared gene will differ.
Considering that most species do share the same proteins because we share the same parts, wouldn't this make the connection between them harder to determine?
It would be harder if they DIDN'T share any parts.
You can see that the line I actually tried to copy was stuck on the front of the whole post which I didn't try to copy and didn't want to.
Edited by Adminnemooseus, : Replaced the [indent] and [code] code with [quote] code to get rid of the way overlong lines of text which were causing the page display to be way overwide.
About the pop-up, I need to know more than you don't like it ...
As a writer of software, what other end do you have in mind except gratifying the wishes of your users?
I have Firefox set up so that if I click on anything it will open in a new tab, rather than in a new window. This is how I like it to be. You, along with people who wish me to pay money to see naked women or to play online poker, have managed to circumvent this clearly stated preference. I resent this.
I'm trying to understand if this is a personal preference that might vary from person to person, or if there's some more objective reason.
I have things set up so that everything appears in a new tab and not a new window. And everything else in your software does just that. This new "index to certain important topics" thing makes a new window. All I ask of you is that you make it do what absolutely everything else in your software does.
P.S: I've been a bit complainy lately, so could I add that it's excellent software usually.
I assume we still have guidelines and that this is a broken link.
How dull. I am going to assume that we no longer have guidelines, and that we may now do as we please.
I have not yet decided whether my next post should be personally offensive or merely sexually indecent ... but on thinking it over, I don't see why it can't be both. Are there any creationists on this forum with big tits?
