correct preposition

I would have said "at" sounds better. It's like saying "More cookies can be found AT the shop on the corner". Not "on". Laughing out loud

Both would be technically correct, but I would agree with TPH in the context 'At' sounds better.

Why would "more information on removed .info" be correct? Surly the only way 'on' would be correct is if you wrote "more information [is available] on the website at removed .info", and even then it sounds wrong to me.

Life's a b*tch and then you die!

correct preposition

It is as I said technically correct Roy I didn't say was correct; the english language is daft "more info on doodah.com" means just that, there is more info to be found on doodah.com. it is correct-ish after a fashion.
Come on now we all no that my deep grasp of the grammers and speeeling of me language is good and profane or is that profound

correct preposition

Were on a roll now with another example of the use of on to refer to more info on something as opposed to on it as in on top of it rather than on as in within it, there are doubtless more posibilities to be found on the use of on and on the context that on may be used in or is that on as well :?

It seems your take on/at all this is different to mine (or should that be from?)
Still on topic - discuss. O:)

Yes Lorraine that should be 'From' just as one has an 'Aversion from' not as often incorrectly said an 'Aversion to' but you knew that.

This is so much cooler than discussing CSS Smile

It's all about selection structures, man.....

if( (Right on == Left off) && ( Back up == Front down)){

//differentiate between destinations
at = the place where something takes place;
on = the place where something is taken or learned from;


thing = what we are doing

     //increment value of usages based on outcome
     if(usage == come to my site to learn about something){
            more information at ++;
            }//end if

     else if (usage == the place where something can be found){
            more information on ++;
            }//end else if


     //determine relative values of formats
     if (more information at > more information on){
            useMe = at;
            }//end if
     else if (more information at < more information on){
             useMe = on;
             }//end else if

outPutString = "You can find ".thing." ".useMe." domain.com.";

echo(outPutString);

}//end main if

Oh a smarta... I dont think that's at all secure though, no validation of user input.

validation of user input occurs in a separate function in an otherwise inaccessible directory on a bank of anonymous, remote computer with only a portion of the job being handled by each system. the remote systems are not able to communicate directly with each other but only with the hub system through a dedicated T3 connection of which each component node is guarded by large, hairy men with Slavic accents with trained killer pit-bulls as friends and bunkmates. data Security in transmission is ensured via a 18742567bit SSL cert with a 17-tiered strong password access schema. anyone inputting data to the system undergoes a USG level 5 background check, submits saliva, semen, and hair samples for DNA mapping, and must undergo rigourous mental modification and bahavioural training. If that aint' secure enough for you......

Yep, spot on, (or should that be spot at).

Slavic áccénts are very important in security. But its the germanic ümläüts that are truly scæry.
