  1. I've been getting this message when attempting to post an image with a file type .png Clicking Submit, the image doesn't post and the message appears above the editor. Clicking Submit a second time, the image does post and everything appears normal. .jpg file types are not a problem.
  2. Word of the Day : Because of the medicine’s soporific properties, the doctor told me to only take it at bedtime.
  3. After you sign-in click your name at the top of your screen > My Settings > Notification Options
  4. The name "Media Library" just seems to represent much more than is offered here. Perhaps the builders had a larger scope in mind when they constructed this site but economics prevented its application. I imagine it as a place for videos, photos, and audio files. I'm not actually looking for my previous posts. Many of my early YouTube posts were made using the BBCCode/Media feature here, so I was wondering why they weren't listed in my Media Library.
  5. Thomas Mitchell as "Kid" Dabb in Only Angels Have Wings (1939)
  6. I was just outside on the front porch eating a banana when my cat slithered up with that "where's mine?" look - you know it. I was pinching off a piece and stopped myself as I wondered if it would be safe - I had no idea, so I withdrew. I looked it up on the internet (everything on the internet is true) and found this chart. Bananas are not mentioned, but there are a few things which could be fatal. Chart HERE
  7. Word of the Day : It is the equivalent of the thirteenth roll in a ‘baker's dozen.’ It is something thrown in, gratis, for good measure. The custom originated in the Spanish quarter of the city. When a child or a servant buys something in a shop—or even the mayor or the governor, for aught I know—he finishes the operation by saying— ‘Give me something for lagniappe.’ The shopman always responds; gives the child a bit of licorice-root, gives the servant a cheap cigar or a spool of thread, gives the governor—I don't know what he gives the governor; support, likely.
  8. Are attachments the only Media Type allowed within this feature? I can find no other options. I have, in the past, posted YouTube URLs via the Special BBCode/Media feature, but none of those appear in my Media Library. This is confusing.
  9. Isn't there a rule preventing the usage of "George Raft" and "Morocco" in the same sentence?
  10. I set an email reminder from the schedule page.. not the overview page. I just received that reminder and, because that's working, I should receive a follow-up email reminder 24 hrs before the film runs. We'll see. As far as I know, setting email reminders from the overview page is still out-of-order.
  11. I like that! Should I ever become a billionaire, I will do the same. I would also try to buy up all the cable ad spots for a week or month - maybe longer.
  12. Parsec A parsec (symbol: pc) is a unit of length used to measure large distances to objects outside our Solar System. One parsec is the distance at which one astronomical unit subtends an angle of one arcsecond. A parsec is equal to about 3.26 light-years (31 trillion kilometres or 19 trillion miles) in length. The nearest star, Proxima Centauri, is about 1.3 parsecs (4.25 light-years) from the Sun. Most of the stars visible to the unaided eye in the nighttime sky are within 500 parsecs of the Sun. The parsec unit was likely first suggested in 1913 by the British astronomer Herbert Hall
  13. Word of the Day : It would be someone who knew he was an ailurophile ... someone who knew where he lived ... someone who knew he was away from home on that particular morning.
  14. Note: The coordinates do not reverse when the board is flipped, so I'm leaving it this way. White to move..
