    ..... code or something like that? :cry:

    .... so it was like old school script commands on a blue or black screen and you had to type certain commands and then embed your poast inside of the command set, and then to read it you had to know the commands to decode it? :waiting

    I need some more pepto bismol :mad:

    Send me a private message via PINE and I'll edit it using VI. If you cant read it you can always email me at 63827167848@compuserv.net

    I do two of those things every day. Love me some VI, and PINE (Alpine) is still the best email client ever. Hard to get a virus using PINE!

    The systems I work on are Linux, and in some conditions vi is the only editor available. As a consultant I have always trained myself to be proficient with the most commonly available tools - especially ones that are always there. vi has never let me down.
