Oh, do try and keep your comments a little more brief, szwag :)

Thanks, of course, for sharing the knowledge.

NMJ said...

trews, you are clever. how did you do that?

trousers said...

Hi nmj, I have to admit that all the credit goes to szwag.

He explained it on the previous thread - you do (del) then your writing, then (/del) - except that the normal brackets are replaced by the pointy brackets for html tags.

NMJ said...

ach, but it doesn't work in comments - & i've just seen szwag had already said that. i like it, i must find reason to use it.

trousers said...

Yes, a bit of a shame about not being able to do the same with comments. A certain ario f recommended a site to me which has all sorts of html trickery (if you can be bothered, it's on the thread for a post from September, "Dream")

Well yes, if you want to be snobbish and professional.
I saw an article (from the States) about the difference between the amateurs and the professionals.
If you can do 'the crossing out bit' then you are elevated to the upper echelons.
Fuck them all I say.
We - ie me - just say what we want to say.
The problem is that eventually 'blogger's rights' are going to be restricted - starting with Britain - with an approved list.
Little bit rambling, i know, but those who are more sophisticated are more likely to pass muster.
Still, trousers has come a long way for someone who didn't want to be a blogger.

On a lighter note.

Guy goes to the Doctor.
Doctor, I have 5 penises.
Surely, that must make it difficult to get Trousers that fit?
No, they fit like a glove.

That joke came all the way from Brazil on Skype tonight.

But Why? said...

It's difficult to assess whether it works without understanding what it was that you were trying to achieve. Do we get any clues? xx

trousers said...

No snobbery here merk, it's another means to being silly if I want to. I don't give a damn about amateur or professional.

but why?, I wanted to do crossed-out writing. Mission accompanlished!

Merkin said...

Only teasing, trousers.

zola a social thing said...

Um

trousers said...

Fair enough merk, such are the pitfalls of me viewing and replying to such comments early in the morning. Mind you, I was thinking about writing a post about my newly-elevated blogging status (!) entirely in crossed-out writing ;-)

zola, bear with me: I'll have to go away and think about that one.

Ms Melancholy said...

I remember the days when you didn't even want your own blog. Well done anyway, we are all most impressed x

DJ Kirkby said...

teach me!

szwagier said...

Morning :-)

Caroline said...

oooooooooooooooh you'll so clever.

(and Ms M's comment made me giggle!)

trousers said...

ms m, that made me giggle too: I can't read your comment without thinking of Brucie saying "didn't he do well!" ;-)

dj, instructions are further up this thread, or are on the previous thread as elucidated by szwag, to whom I am sending a very belated "morning!"

Caroline, the question is to what use do I put this new-found wealth of knowledge...
