    Space bar in text widget - you are not crazy.

    Sometimes while working in the text widget in the forum, you will find that lately, your space bar has stopped working. CRAZY! 1. Hit the Enter key a few times. 2. Arrow key up. 3. Type as usual. 4. Optional - delete the stuff where the space bar wasn't working, even if they're empty line...

    Unfortunately, multiple media outlets are confirming that Prince passed away this morning at his Paisley Park studio in Chanhassen, MN. We've lost a lot of amazing musicians this year. Really sad news.

    Beyond wish fulfillment

    A conversation came up in Slack that fascinates me endlessly - Aristotle said a lot about civilization overcoming its meniality and being judged by the quantity and quality of its leisurely pursuits. So, consider this proposition: You are assumed to have an ideal family unit of your choosing...

    USPS help

    Any Ueys work for the Postal Service or have a close friend/relative who does? I need some help and both of the post offices responsible for my problem have provided none, the phone system hangs up on me when I try escalating to a human being, and the online tools are useless for my situation...

    My dear Ueys

    Paper anniversary

    My 1st wedding anniversary is coming up (on Easter Sunday this year, randomly). I have zero in the way of ideas, especially for "paper." Neither of us are huge on tradition, so I don't have to stick with that stuff. But I'm actively soliciting ideas. I'd like to be well ahead of the game this year.

    Venture Bros. Season 6! The season premiere and epilogue are streaming now - they might have overdone it a bit with the cameos, but I like the direction they're going. John Hodgman, Paget Brewster, and Stephen Colbert all do guest voices, along with the usual rogue's...

    Election Day 2014: Revenge of Civic Duty!

    Hi fellow Ueys! In the US, starting tomorrow morning, it becomes time to vote! There is a sizeable lack of interest this election cycle, particularly in the younger and tech-literate among us.

    Another text widget issue

    Yo, Still hoping we can update or otherwise fix the text widget issue(s) with using Ctrl+B/I/U and having the entry cursor fly all over the place, and the possibility of having default font/size for our accounts :) Apart from that, I use the drop-downs for Font and Size nearly every post, and...

    Draw attention to "What's New?"

    It took me a few weeks to figure out what to click on every visit. I suspect there are plenty o' folks who aren't rolling in the joyfulness of clicking What's New? - leading to duped threads or missed posts in threads they follow but don't subscribe to. Yes, I ended with a preposition, it's...
