Hello...

So having wikipedia'd BBCode, I thought I'd have a look to see what this sites specifics were. I read on for a while, scrolling as I read, until reaching a list of horrific words.

Now I am not offended by anything there, I just think incase my web pages in my office are scanned for words or the like, you really just need to say "Potentially offensive words or swear words" rather then listing them.

I'm worried that my employers are going to get a report saying "On one occassion John went to a page with all these words involved"!

Aside from anything else, aren't you just spelling out what people CAN get away with? And what's the point in blocking them if your going to categorically list every offensive word you can think of on a publically available page?

Sorry to moan,

John

That shouldn't /isn't

That shouldn't /isn't supposed to be seen :? it's part of the admin system and requires user privileges set , not sure why it is being exposed in that fashion?

might have to pass this posts link to Tony to mull over.

As for the 'words' I'm afraid that they do have to be written at some point, it's unavoidable

hic-cup

Well it was my housemates girlfriends birthday party Sat in our flat. Incidentally, for a 2 bedroom flat, we had 14 people sleep in it that night! Ouch!!!

Anyway, I just used all the swear words on the list (but obviously ignored the variations using various keyboard character substitutes). Everyone had to say a word they thought might be on the list, if it was it was ticked and the next person then had to guess (I was the list master). If you said something that either wasn't on the list or had been ticked, you had to drink!

The good bits were seeing some of the girls awkwardly mutter horrific words and hearing people guess at words they considered obscene. One or two explanations of what a word meant had to be given, and consequently we all learnt some new ones too! It was very funny, and lots of drinking went on Smile

Behaving time

I tend to stick with 'Vermouth' to drink now on nights like that. It's cheap at about a fiver for a large bottle, but it doesn't taste very nice. Furthermore, if you emptied a single average sized bottle in to the Atlantic here in England, the Atlantic on the American coast would very quickly start tasting of Vermouth. Seriously, it doesn't matter WHAT you mix it with, it takes over!

T'was indeed fun, we have a three year old staying for the next couple of days though, so no messing around like that anytime soon Sad

Analogenious

It's funny you should say that! I always thought about being a teacher... I love teaching using analogies!!

"See kids, CSS is like this electric lego railway kit. What you really want is the HTML to just be this main engine bit. That way you use the CSS lego bricks to build and beautify the train. So here you are, heres the code and content (explain it at this point). Now, here's the CSS file, and a bunch of commands to copy in to it. Watch your train appear..." < Could start by making them write a div with a background image of a fancy train or something.

Awesome

Extension

The kids wouldn't understand if I then made some joke about how the analogy could be expanded.

"Much like the aerodynamics of a train, if your code doesn't flow, it will de-rail"!

Still in training!

Good question! I shall give it some thought. I have the feeling it would be something to do with various types of trains all being required to run on the same tracks so despite their different designs, they must all have wheels the same width apart. Something like that. Perhaps to explain how IE and other browsers see things different when it comes to widths, explain that some trains have wheels that have the runners on the inside whilst others have them on the outsides.

Of course I'm making it up as I go along here Tongue

Well England only need ~400

Well England only need ~400 runs, so no problem we'll do that easily , although with any luck the match will be rained off and a draw declared as it was for the first test that England (should have/did) won/win, do have to begrudgingly admit that was a fine innings from the Indian team, sublime batting, marginally lousy bowling Smile

John have you considered that in actual fact it's not coding that is your vocation but perhaps an attendant at Legoland or perhaps a roaming mascot or conversly a train driver/buffet car steward ?

Your Right

"John have you considered that in actual fact it's not coding that is your vocation but perhaps an attendant at Legoland or perhaps a roaming mascot or conversly a train driver/buffet car steward ?"

When I first started reading that I thought you were going to suggest my true vocation was something like teaching, or writing, or professional analogist (the type that comes up with metaphors and the like, not the proctologist type)!

But alas, your right. I would be a much better Legoland attendant or train steward then a coder. Tongue

Right!

Haha!

Always been a pride of mine actually, I've used them as long as I can remember. I often get told off for not just being saying what I mean.

The other day for example my computer was making extremely odd noises, from the hard-drive. After 'ok'ing a ton of error messages, I was in Windows with this feeling I wouldn't be able to log-in again, so I copied the more important files across to an external hard-drive. On-line to a friend I explained the situation and told him I felt I was on a sinking ship, just making sure I got all the woman on to the life raft before sinking!

(There's a bit more to the analogy due to the nature of the 'files' I was saving, but we'll skip that bit now being on a public forum and all), haha
