I know to correct a spelling on here is “not cricket” but I always thought it was FUBAR
I think thats educational rather pedantic and have no idea how its spelt as i have never heard of it. I can guess what it means though

Still training to be a newbie. M/H Apr 2021
The cold weather has stopped my brain working, but what does RTFM stand for please.
Read The Flipping Manual [other F words are available, such as Flaming!] Or as my former Religious Studies [known as the Gand], 'It's a dirty 4 letter word that ends in 'ck'.Still not got it? I'll absolutely give it away, then, 2nd letter is 'u'. Of course the answer is 'Muck' ... :rolleyes: :LOL: :rolleyes:

The "+Quote" means you can select multiple responses to include in your reply.



As for the blue circle that's a trade secret so send copious quantities of cash or beer! ;)
Simply a print screen and add the circle in picture editing software.
Only just managed to do the quote so if I need a ”circle” doing I will forward the necessary cash/beer (y) ;)

596 was the name of someone who had a particular style of posting, which was "different" and used fishing lines to which he/she caught many

SOme of it was really quite funny if you didnt take it seriously

DO a search for posts started by him/her

Please don't answer questions with things like

This has been done to death
You're the 10th Person to ask this week
Use the search and you'll find loads of ...
Google is your friend.

The person who has plucked up the courage to ask the question, will feel like they have just wasted your time, they'll feel bad, and it certainly puts people off posting.

You shouldn't care if the question has been asked 500 times before, it should still be answered like it's the first time you've seen it. Some people take ages to pluck up the courage to post here and when they finally do, some of those go on to be prolific posters and can become virtual and real fiends. I count people as good friends now who certainly would never have joined this place if people were thoughtlessly rude to them on their first few days here.

If you can't be bothered to come up with a friendly welcoming answer, please don't bother responding at all, someone else will.

Hello, we have discussed this a lot recently, take a look here, That should answer your question, if it doesn't, pop back here and ask away. (y)
If people didn't ask the same questions on forums ,the forums would peeter out
