The forum lost 2 of my huge post tonight.... And I am not big than of typing...
Is it me/my system or the forum software?
Should I start typing them in someplace else before posting?
Why are you asking us? No one has the answers to your first questions who doesn't also have admin privileges. And the answer to the bolded question is for you to determine by how much you value your time.
As far as I am concerned (and because I value your posts), you should type somewhere else and then copy and paste here until you figure out what is going on. But then that doesn't cost me any time, only you.
