Then I demand the font to be set to bold and the font colour to green :smiley:
Apparently a mainly British phenomena.

"Prolixity." Now there's a word with infinite connotations...

Dear Sir,

In your recent missive you appear to have confused the meaning of the word, or dare I say, bon môt, "category", with that other time-honoured specimen of English vernacular, the "thread".

I'd be much obliged that you would endeavour to, as the future unfolds, correct your, though undoubtedly unaware, misplacement of an otherwise most elegant and insightful example. Or as Churchill himself is well recorded as having written:

"Don't reply to a bleedin' category description, you oik."

Yours most sincerely,

Mr. J. O. Nathon.

Exalted Mr. J.O.Tootles maintainer Sir .

My time honored thread broke.
This Dastardly mishap forced to embellish the result with a printed copy of Manjaro handbook thus to avoid arrest or picadilly posterior gropers.

Please distribute a patch immediately.

Yours most sincerely,
Mr Brodwick Smythe Loreda Wicknase.

love that, its part of a work of great wisdom: http://uncyclopedia.wikia.com/wiki/Gentoo
Many Kudos to the author or authors.

Maybe I can translate that to German and put it in my new users special guide, somebody is sure to start to enter all that. I can do a howto starting with go to menu, open the command console and put sudo at the start. :slight_smile: Great for taking the piss out of win 10 experts and mac fans.
