Effing weird. I forget exactly how he/she spells it, but the user whose name reads as "you know" in leet uses the < symbol as part of the "k". I think I saw somewhere he/she posted about having a similar missing text problem with his/her name.
Plants are people, too.

So weird.  I just tried to respond and got sent to the index.This time it didn't allow "drop-table" without the hyphen - and won't let me type "drop-table" without the hyphen anywhere in the post.  Makes me think there's some parsing process taking place that is erroneously flagging things.

 

 

My original post -

Yeah, I saw that too.  There was discussion about the user name "mimicking" SQL syntax and the site not properly parsing the code so interpreting it as a command. The "drop-table" joke too.

 

But I thought along the same lines as you about whether something's happening with the text we're typing in being treated as a command and causing some fault or exception.  It only seems to happen in certain context; you can't type certain things in one sentence or post, but then in another context or post there's no problem.  Would be interesting to know what's happening.

 

Oh well. I've learned to copy my post into the clipboard before posting so I don't loose it.

I was going to mow last year, but the throttle cable on my lawnmower broke.

I attended a water quality seminar yesterday and it turns out that no- and low-maintenance lawns are all the big "new" thing now. I was just ahead of my. Or way behind:

I grew up in NY, lawns were the thing. I had no problem losing that logic.

 

I only have to mow when it rains, some years just 3-4 times. But those years are too dry. If the yard needs mowing, and it just rained....it can wait a week. Or I have to do it again...LOL
 


It's all about the pods....

I just got caught up here. Lots of good stuff going on John!

 

The plants look great and I see a killer year in the making. 25K  for a kilo? Who's buying ? cuz I'll devote 20 acres..LOL

 

I ran into the posting issue. I was guessing I had a timeout between start and finish. I can't see it being the text input, if that were the case it would happen every time. Not just once in a while. I'm pretty familiar with php, and of you type s" the code will (should) escape the " and present it to the sql engine as s\" so it knows it's not a quote it needs to look at. Hope that makes sense ;)

Yes, that last bit is good practice regardless. And for anyone who didn't see the referenced post, or the original xkcd:

 I've tried a couple of times, unsuccessfully, to get buffalo grass established on my place. Descriptions read like it's an ideal drought resistant, low maintenance grass. With the added benefit of being a native species.

Thanks, Scott. I keep trying; one of these years I'll run all year on all cylinders.

Apparently "gourmet chefs" pay such prices. I think it's likely a case of one person pulled a number out of the air and it just keeps getting quoted.

I get the general gist of what you're saying re php, but as CaneDog notes, it certainly seems to be contextual. I've copied the text that won't post and pasted it into a new edit window and clicked post immediately and it still won't post, so I think it's not a timeout issue.

There's a thread down in the suggestions subforum, I think. Someone there said they solved the issue by setting their editor default option to "paste as plain text", but I don't know where to set that option. Bossman is aware of the problem and has someone working on it. I assume it's infant mortality for the "new and improved" THP. Or less morbidly, the leading edge of the bathtub curve.

Use the far right button in the top row of formatting buttons. It's the "Options" button. Put a check in the box for paste as plain text. Do it once and it sticks.

Ah, thank you, I see that now, but it gives me this message, "Because of your browser security settings, the editor is not able to access your clipboard data directly. You are required to paste it again in this window."

However, the button right next to it opens a window to "paste as plain text." Not as convenient as set it and forget it, but it'll work for now.

Wow. Seems like a tempest in a teapot with the posting
difficulties. I am glad the boss is working on it. Seems
to be working okay now, but I am waiting for the other
shoe to drop!
