    Now I get a freakin right nostril. that's it, I'm done.

    And I'm sorry Poss, I didn't intend to extend THOSE labia, especially since I don't have any.

    Kiss and make up. Mwaah mwaah :)

    I guess it's a long time since I looked up labia. At least from a lying down position.

    I won't make THAT mistake again in polite company. Talk about your faux pas - it's the only dance step I know.

    Goodnight sweet poss. Thanks for your help :)

    What? Oh, I'm sorry, were you saying something? I was too busy staring at your giant nose.

    Grrrrrr. Tomorrow, electronic nose job. Tonight, sleep. To sleep perchance to snore (....the bloody house down by the look of that conk)
  2.  
    Ah, sleep, the term rings a bell. Maybe I should attend to that as it is 4:07 am.
    Leave the nose, It's growing on me. Or, perhaps, just growing.

    I've decided to leave the nose too. There's something, I dunno, well, Nostralian about it. Like Nostradamus. My nose-hairs can read 4,000 years into the future.

    Back to Miss Marple: Geraldine isn't my favourite Marple.

    I like Joan Hickson and Margaret Rutherford. There was another Miss Marple between the two of them, but I can't remember her name.

    Hi, just to add something to "Clickable Links", if you add 'target="_blank"' in the html link code it'll open a new window, instead of taking over your beloved cleeseblog window! (At least, it works that way in Internet Explorer!) There are keyboard shortcuts to do the same thing, but most of us have had our (mostly) left hand atrophy long ago, so we can only work with our mouse.

    Thus: (clickable to a new browser window)
    Tempesta Tormenta
    Would be formatted as:



    that is, Type target="_blank" href=" before the URL and ">TEXT after.

    Thanks, cass! I'll copy and paste your instructions into the first post, so people don't have to go sifting through all the nonsense.

    No, please don't do that!

    I posted a YouTube here just fine. I thought it was going to be all hot and bothersome, but I didn't have to do anything (update) once you use the right coding. Check this for samples that you can cut 'n paste: Embedded link samples

    I asked for a coffee in the Dominican Republic, and got an espresso in a demitasse with about a quarter cup of sugar in it. I'd told them no sugar, but they thought that was muy loco.

    I do, too, and the stuff I got in the DR was like coffee syrup. They love sweets there--maybe because sugar is their money-making crop, maybe because they're all addicted. I don't know.

    Omg what a mess. I'd better edit those posts again.

    They should work now.

    If you add 'target="_blank"' in the html link code
    it'll open a new window,
    instead of taking over your beloved cleeseblog window!


    Thank you Mrs T, I hope "my friends" won't take over our beloved window now :rainbow:

    You're welcome, Val. But that was another member's bit of advice. And WHERE in the code are you supposed to insert 'target="_blank"'?
  10.  
    At the beginning, just before href.(Now the links work correctly, don't they?)

    Ooh, I've seen it now! Cassbtt added that bit of advice, I thank him/her, but you copied and pasted his/her instructions into the first post and I followed them reading that post. Hope I haven't caused troubles. If I did it, I apologise.

    ... he or a she?... hmmm, I always thought one could just click the username and go to that person's profile, which is sometimes accompanied by a user's pic!? Try it.

    The "cassbtt" is not too complicated. It's my three scripts, "Cass"andra, "B"revity, and "T"empesta "T"ormenta. Although a couple of months ago I renamed the first story "Kathryn Railly".
  12.  
    You're perfectly right. Furthermore I went on your profile yesterday and saw your pic, but I wasn't sure the portrayed man was really you!

    person's profile, which is sometimes accompanied by a user's pic!?

    Sometimes, not always. :wink: Since I wasn't sure I thought "It's better if I ask". Just to be sure to prevent a gaffe, lol.

    Cool "Cassbtt", if you posted your scripts on the forum I'll read them with pleasure.




    I just saw your link: Sequels to "12 monkeys"! The web page looks very professional. I read a bit of "Kathrhyn Railly". Congrats! Are you a professional screenwriter?

    Congrats! Are you a professional screenwriter? Thanks for the comments!

    If "professional" means three scripts, then I guess so. If it means I've been paid for anything, well, no. At this point, as with others of my ilk, the goal is just to see my "movies"!!!

    Since I know nobody wants to read 380 pages of scripts, I thought that if my Story Analyst ever gets around to doing the "script coverage" I've ordered (that is, a 1-page professional critique with rating "pass-consider-recommend"), I'll post the link. I paid the guy via Pay Pal on Sep-19 and he keeps postponing the work... !

    Say, I do have a wee scene in Italy in that first story. I did the translations from an on-line tool. Mind checking them for me? Ha!

    Here's the set-up: (p.50)

    Dr. Peters, the bad/sick fellow who's spreading the virus around the world, has arrived in Marco Polo airport in Venice. The cops are chasing him but based on his flight plan they go to the wrong airport, Leonardo da Vinci in Rome. He's switched airlines to throw them off. Anyway, as he walks through the concourse I have a few terms and, though my Grandpa was from Trieste, I never got any Italian out of him, so... INT/EXT. MARCO POLO AIRPORT (VENICE) - DAY An Air France A320 SWOOPS in to a landing in Venice. Peters walks through the concourse. Overhead is a muffled, P.A. system in Italian. Then, in English: ANNOUNCER ... overflow from Da Vinci airport. Please be patient with delays. Schedules flip: “Ritardata-Delayed, Annullate-Cancelled”. Peters pauses at the signs. He reacts. PETERS They’re trying hard to catch up to us. EXT. MARCO POLO CONCOURSE EXIT (SAME TIME) Peters scans the array of tour vans parked, engines running. As he checks his ticket, a BAGGAGE HANDLER approaches. BAGGAGE HANDLER (in difficult English) Sir, may I help, sir? From the ticket, the man quickly finds the target. Peters tips him, shakes his hand, and joins a queue at the van. As Peters boards, the destination sign comes into view: “Città del Vaticano (Vatican City)” If anybody can confirm those phrases that would be much appreciated!
  13.  
    Schedules flip: “Ritardata-Delayed, Annullate-Cancelled”.

    Ritardata and Annullate are incorret. I think you'd better write:

    "In ritardo-Delayed"

    "Annullato" or "Cancellato" - Cancelled

    ("Flight" in Italian is "volo", a masculine noun. In general singular nouns ending in -o are masculine).

    I'm pretty sure but maybe you could ask Giacoma's opinion too. I'm note sure about my English! :shamed:

    You payed for a coverage on Sept 19 and still haven't received? Bad luck. I don't know how long does it take to write a script coverage, though.

    Fingers crossed for you Cass, I wish you'll manage to sell your screenplays and see your movies!

    Outstanding, Valetudinaria, thank you. I'm a software programmer in my day job and I "hate" bugs -- whether it's a computer program or a script.

    I insist on my stories being as accurate and plausible as possible. As well, "internationalizing" them is very important, not just because everybody likes to be mentioned in the story, in some way. The last thing someone relaxing in a theatre watching a show needs to see is a "give away" that the writers/producers didn't know what they were talking about or didn't do the proper research.

    Appreciate it very much.
