FanDuel - WFBC

May 18, 2006

I'm stupid: I tried to post a topic but I am such a boneheaded computer novice that I can't figure out how to link to a column and post it. If anyone cares to give me any pointers I would greatly appreciate it. Or, if you just want to tell me what a complete stoneage 8-track playing idiot I am, then I guess I deserve that. Sorry, I'm from those days and this stuff is frustrating to me. Anyway if anyone feels sorry enough for my decrepit old ass, you can e-mail me at jcreibs13@yahoo.com. Thanks for any help. Jeff

Okay, first, turn the self-hatred down about eight notches. Just because you don't know how the code works doesn't mean you have to commit seppuku. That said, the posting process is pretty straightforward. The sample gif is very clear: "URL" is the web address (http://www.whatever.com/column). "Link Title" is the first phrase in your post. A few words is fine. "Description" is the rest of the description. Keep playing with it. You can click "Preview" a million times until it looks right. You're not gonna break it. So stop with the fear and the self-hatred, and just take it one step at a time. Or email justgary or rcade if you're having a real problem.

jcreibs, this is what the filled-in form would look like for the example text: But like chico said, play around with it and preview all you want.

Whooo.....can we have a SpoFi seppuku category? That's a martial art, right?

I hate myself for not being as helpful as chicobangs and DrJohnEvans. I'm giving myself a Jason Terry crotch punch right now. I suck.

Speaking of that, justgary was supposed to have forwarded an email to you about the self induced technical difficulty I am having. Unfortunately, it looks like something only an admin can fix. If you don't respond soon, I'm gonna crawl so far up your ass you will be able to taste my shampoo. Really though, I have more pressing matters, which I am sure you do to. But if you could take a quick gander at it, I would greatly appreciate it. I might even buy you a mug for christmas.

Yes, sent to the cadenhead empire. Have you registered that domain yet?

Completely OT: I propose that from now on, anyone who comments or posts an FPP either in all caps, with bad grammar, twice, or any combination thereof without irony, be labelled... "Waterboy".

Gary, Kirk and or Rogers: I'm trying to get in touch with any of you offline but not managing to slip through the various filters and blockers. Could one of you email me at blazar at google's wonderful email service? Thx.

Thanks for all the help and humor. I appreciate all of it. I also didn't get your e-mail justgary, but I'll try out everyones advice and if I still can't figure it out I'll just hang myself (and try to post pics, Just kidding, LOL). But seriously thanks for the help, I am grateful to have joined a site with you guys (and girls, don't want to offend anyone). If I find another good post I'll use all your suggestions. Too late to post the one I was trying. Jeff PS. nice comic samsonov.

I'm going to be 90 years old and they'll still be calling me "girl". LOL.

Better than "Pardon me, 90 year old dude" right?

posted by jerseygirl at 06:31 AM on May 20

You would prefer "90-year-old broad?"

posted by The_Black_Hand at 11:00 AM on May 20

I'd be thrilled to be called "girl" when I'm 90.

posted by chicobangs at 05:56 PM on May 20

wait, lil brown bat doesn't have a lil brown bat?

posted by mick at 11:00 AM on May 21

I'm sure she's got some kind of bat she could beat you-all about the face and neck with Juan Marichal-style, you whippersnapper, you. Now get off my porch, or I'll show you the back of my hand!

I'm gonna kill myself. Just kidding.

Does anyone else hear the theme from Dawson's Creek playing in this thread? No? Sorry. *runs*
