That was a horrible copy and paste Gypsy..lol, but nevertheless I was able to get a portion out of that of what the post was suppose to relay.

Here's a copy and paste from a earlier post I made a few months ago on another topic, which I think is relevant:

-----
Here’s this organization, the NFL, that practices everything red-blooded Americans are supposedly opposed to. It’s as close to socialism as you can get, they share revenue, practice price controls, hell, they even dictate salary caps to “level the playing field”, even your team’s colors are assigned to them by the league. It’s central control, plain and simple.

The owners are, for the most part, billionaires who demand that taxpayers provide stadiums at little or no cost to them, they enjoy unique federal tax advantages, and gleefully accept local tax “incentives” Few even live in the communities that their teams bleed for every last cent they can carry off.

And the players! Most of them are illiterate goons, many with criminal backgrounds, the kind of people that would make you cross the street if you saw them coming the other way. They are carpetbaggers, with no loyalty to the “team” or the town they play in.

The fans who show up at the games are blood thirsty, drunken louts, who throw beer at each other and engage in fistfights at the drop of a hat.

And as for the “big game” itself? it is unwatchable, with frequent, agonizingly long commercial breaks, and more often than not, a blowout, with one of the teams so underperformed as to be an embarrassment. You gotta be nuts to park your fat ass in front of the tube for this spectacle..absolutely nuts!

You need to learn how to "Edit" a copy and paste, simple as that. Whatever. I don't think you'll ever get it and I'm done worrying about it. you'll learn someday I guess, but obviously not tonight. ..

What you need to learn how to do is to copy your paste into "Notepad" everyone that has windows operating system has it. you have windows. So find "Notepad" on your computer and open it,. Then you can copy and paste everything there and edit all you want, then when your ready to post copy the entire thing to your message/post.

If you don't know how to find your notpad (which everyone with windows has) I explain farther. I'd have to walk you thru it if you don't know.

Ok, Gypsy, carry on, these issues are rosco's problem now, I retire from that part of explaining how to do things like that. I done it too many times and I have rosco to help people with that now, I can't continue to teach like that all the time, its frustrating and time consuming, trying to write it so people understand, just seek out rosco for those things, I'm done.

Consider this since you can't find your default windows notpad, this one is far better than windows notpad because it has more editing options, not to mention a spell checker:

Ok, I didn't mean to come off harsh, its just I get tired of explaining things all the time, rosco will handle a large portion of that now, but to help you out, check that program and link out.

Here's how to find your notepad program: Click "Start" at the bottom left-hand side of your screen, then click "search" then on the left-hand side click "All Files and folders" Then write in the box "notepad" then click "search". You will see results and notepad come up in the search results, right-click on the notepad search result that says the type is a "shortcut", you'll have several search results but find the one that says the type is a shortcut, then right-click on it and select "pin to start menu", that will put notepads shortcut in your start menu, which is what you see when you click "Start" at the lower left-hand of your screen, that is your start menu for any program you want to put there. You will now see Notepad in that list. Just click it whenever you want to use notepad.

Hope that helps.

hey gypsy. i think i cleaned up the post , not perfect but ok.. actually, that email was so bad,(not ur fault) i probably would not have posted it, since it had so many arrow, again not ur fault , u got it in email that way. I get lots of email with arrows, i actually dont know why some have all the arrows ,,, unless some word processor that may have been used to make the original email did it,i have posted jokes with arrow just not that many, actually i will check mine in the future closer,, .. i dont use notepad, i just paste them before i send i change it to how i want it to look before i send it, sometimes i hit preview and look at it, if it looks ok, u go down under the preview one and the one u edited and previewed is there then it has another preview and send button, u can edit it more there and preview again or if its ok just hit send, i dont use notepad for that, but if u want to know where notepad is , click start and open ur programs, go to accessories and it will be on ur list of accessories, when u see notepad , right click it, then u will see a " SEND TO" on that like click send to desktop as shortcut, it still will be in accessories but will have a icon on ur desktop, i mainly use notebook to type things i want to save, i think by default it goes to ur documents, which i have on my desktop too, u will need to title it in notebook, i think it will just say txt. and will be highlighted, just type and it will type over txt. if that word is highlighted, but like i said i just change my post before sending, u can edit here on the sight before u send,,and preview,if u want to preview, hope ur sugery is going well, take care

Correct rosco, that's another way to find notepad is in accessories. I put most shortcuts in my start menu to keep my desktop clean so I don't have all those icons covering up my Avril desktop pictures..lol

I don't use notepad either when writing my posts, I edit right here on the site and check it over using "preview", when I'm satisfied I submit. I just thought maybe Gypsy would rather have a place to edit her post like notepad since she apparently is having trouble doing it on the site while writing/c&p her postings.

I admit to forgetting to preview, i deleted most of the arrows, never saw so many,
but when i submitted i saw all the arrows still there. tried to edit but it wouldn't let me~ sorry for the frustration it frustrates me also, to where i don't even want to post anything~ which i have cut way back, then everyone is pleased cheers any way thanks Rosco ,Tyler.
i did find notepad an down loaded the one Tyler gave. Just a computer dummy, Oh Well!

The site didn't stop you from editing during preview before you submitted your post, you simply weren't doing it right, which brings me back to my original point and post, you should try notpad and edit their, maybe you can figure that out better.

As far as you not posting as much, that's of course your choice.

I should point out that I DO use nothepad, but mostly to put URLs or codes in that I will add to my post later after I write it.

I don't think anyone is pleased, in fact I predict you will get annoyed at not posting as much, you love this site and everyone knows it, I'm glad about that. Lets speak some more truth.

All I see is someone (you) that doesn't seem to know enough about windows or computers to make a post that is presentable at times, with many mistakes made. You seem to carelessly paste things without looking at it. You've had some good pastes but mostly they suffer from materiel that shouldn't be their (i.e, embedded links that don't work) but you copied them anyway and added them to your post, reguardless if they work or not. You clearly are not reading your own posts. You don't know anything about this stuff and for you to get mad or irritated at me or rosco is your own problem. I only try to help you, but unfortunately you can't comprehend half of what I explain to you. That's not my fault, just a reality.

All you need to do iis think about what you are doing before you post, look over what you are posting for cryin' out loud.. lol!

LOL, well I have a windows program called "Wallpaper Changer" that changes my wallpaper every 30 minutes. But you can set it so it changes at different times besides 30 minutes, like every 15 minutes or every hour or 2 hrs..etc. You set it up to draw all your wallpaper images from one file folder of images of your choosing. So all you do is add pics to that file folder and it will be in the mix and show on your desktop. I have well over 200 pics of Avril in that folder it draws from. The wallpaper changer is a mircosoft powertoy that is free to everyone with windows.

Here's a screenshot of my desktop that is showing right now. Click the link and then to blow it up full screen click the pic. It's 1280 x 768.
