I thought that when you put something in your signature area, that it would work retroactively---like when you change your avatar.  I see, though, that Jimbo's previous posts don't have the beer guy or anything in the sig area.

Just a little note, on MOST sites for those of you with bad eyesight or for those who don't like reading small text, if you have a scrolling mouse, hold down Control and roll your mouse wheel and watch what happens.
AW DAMN!!!! Wild Shot the friggin TV again!!!

I've done that when I've wanted to quote someone from another thread.  I'll add in the topic name and sometimes the date.

I've also posted invisible messages.  See below.
 
It's easy.  Just type out your post and change the color to white.  To see the message, just drag your cursor over it.

For those of us who use Internet Explorer 7.
 
If the text is too small or a picture is too smal to see, look down to the bottom right of the window.  You should see a plus magnifying glass then 100% then a down arrow.  Click on the down arrow, you can select any size to magify the whole internet explorer window.

I have ie 7.0.5blablabla and I don't have that icon (maybe I hid it, it's happened before).
 
However - I discovered that ctrl++ or ctrl+- does the same thing.
 
That's the control key and the plus, or minus key.
Let's try not to be boring, mkay?

Very cool, Holly! Thank you so much.

Also, if you go up to your browser's toolbar and click on View, then hit Text Size, you can increase or decrease it.  But the CTRL++ does the same thing, a lot easier!

I don't have a huge monitor, and all the junk I have on it (such as my toolbars, search bars, Smiley Central, and all that other stuff on top) makes the space for the actual website and email and other programs even smaller.
 
As I need that stuff, and didn't want to get rid of any of it, I figured there's gotta be a way to temporarily hide it all.  So I started playing with my function buttons (F1 to F12).  Voila!!  F11 is the key!!  Hit it once and it goes away.  Hit it again and it returns.

Or you could just get a bigger monitor.

The first is, how to insert a YouTube video into your post.  Instead of just a boring link to it.
First, find a cool video that you want to insert into your post.
For our first example we will use one of Nathan's CIH videos.
Go to the address bar and copy the whole address on to the clipboard. 
Then paste this link into your post. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T0J9A-H4ygQ
As you can see it creates a nice, but boring hyperlink.  What we want to focus on in this hyper link is only the part after where it says "watch?v=" the last part.
Make a copy of that part and paste it again. T0J9A-H4ygQ
Now to make it appear in your post as a cool YouTube video link simply type:
[tube   ]  paste the link again T0J9A-H4ygQ then [/tube     ] 
Note: You will have to leave the extra spaces out as well as of course my instructional text.


Sometimes when you copy a link to a YouTube Video, you get some extra characters:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R7d1S6rBTKg&feature=user
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bdvL3FBwHEc&feature=related

You only need the part of the link IN BETWEEN watch?v= and &feature=xxxx.
So, in the examples I posted above, you only need R7d1S6rBTKg and bdvL3FBwHEc.
These are the YouTube Codes for the videos.
Put that code inside TUBE tags, and you're golden.

Yeah????
 
How many karats?????
 
I hear gold is really going for a lot these days.
 
I could sell myself.
 
Make a fortune.
 
But then they'd melt me down, so that's no good.....
 
Hmmmph!!! Always something.

I have a jar of gold flakes.  Unfortunately, it's one of those tiny little jars I would've put my white stash into years ago.  And, sitting at the bottom in water, it's only about 1/32 of an inch high.  The sum total of all my goldmining expeditions.

I have an old broken Swiss watch that my mom bought my dad when they were dating in Germany in 1948. The inside of the back of the case is stamped .75 oz. of 22 karat gold.
 
I'm not sure if that's just the back or the entire case.
 
But at today's prices, that thing is worth a pretty penny.
 
Sentimental value just won't let me sell it.
 
Yet.

Probably worth more as a piece of jewelry, though.  Not only is it worth the weight of the gold, it also has value as a collectible.
 
Even gold nuggets are that way.  People will pay lots more for a gold nugget than it's weight would justify.

Thanks for the thread...I'll use it for future reference.  It's been enough of a headache trying to learn how to put my new Milhouse avatar onto the site.  (BTW--it's good knowing I'm not the only Simpsons fan in this forum, thanks to VioletLightning's Mr. Sparkle logo and Mayor Quimby quotation.)

How to post ♫ to indicate lyrics to a song or whatever.
 
I use the character map and copy the notes that are in the font list and then paste them in a sentence.
 

I got them from the Arial Black font list.  It's the third from the last character.

If you don't know how to find the character map, simply go to the start menu then look for search, then search 'character map'.
