At the bottom of the area where I'm reading the posts is a doubled bar. It's
doubled because when I fire the program up I drag the one that's a bit up
from the bottom all the way down, because normally I don't care to see
what's in there.
Looking at _your_ post, after dragging it back up a bit, I see the
(Email icon) [Electronics_101] Re: new user multipart/alternative 7bit 17.5KB
(Text icon) body part quoted-printable 265B
(html icon) body part HTML page 14.1KB
(Dragging things back where they were... :-)
So even your post is for the most part HTML. Which is something I see as
having no place in email, but that's neither here nor there. In the post
in question, the size of the "text" part was _zero_ bytes. So I selected
the HTML part and tried to view it. What the heck, I like to help when I
can... But there was so much formatting, font information, and other junk
in there I gave up.
I'd be happy to talk to any new users that wanna chat, but they gotta work a
little bit and send some _text_ along that I can respond to. Is that too
much to ask, really?
