If you find that funny ... ?
Personally I found that holocaust "joke" pretty offensive.
On a thread marked NSFW, I'm hesitant to remove it.
Still, when i see such posts, like the political posts, i just think ah, maybe that's one of the reasons we seem to have less and less new people joining our family here..
Maybe I'm being overly sensitive -- I'm just more and more feeling like we have to do something to improve this place, and seeing posts like this doesn't make me feel good. Perhaps if I felt like we were a thriving community it would just be a tiny drop in the water. But I feel like we are treading water and things like this start to feel like we loading up our own pockets with stones.
I should say that ArizonaHot has posted tons of interesting inoffensive posts, so I know know offense was meant by this one, and I don't mean to single any one out. Like I said, in the whole scheme of things, this isn't a big deal -- it's just coming at a time when i'm spending a lot of time worrying about how to make this site a more welcoming site for new people..-mouser (November 01, 2013, 06:23 PM)
I am looking into the question of making currency transfers between the UK and the US and wondered if anyone had any experience of, or thoughts on, a cheap (and reliable/secure) method.
Using an online service would not be my first choice but in general it does seem to be cheaper so I may have to use that method.
One thing I have come across is http://www.currencyfair.com/company which needs to be set up online but transactions can then be carried out by phone.
Has anybody ever used them? Has anybody ever heard of them?

Coincidentally, though, I just saw a thing on TechRepublic that mentioned a client I haven't previously heard of: i.Scribe. Anyone tried it?
The free version is limited, the commercial version is $10, adds support for multiple identities/accounts... but the author's spelling is worrying-oblivion (April 09, 2013, 08:56 AM)
I have never looked on this board before and this thread caught my attention.
After a lifetime of being right-handed I lost most of the use of my right arm and hand (permanently) 7 years ago.
I have looked into lots of different advice and information about how to do things left-handed and in my case came to two conclusions:
1. I will never be as dextrous with my left hand as I was with my right.
2. Like everything else, what works for some does not work for others.
I manage to do most of what I need to do albeit in a much longer time than before, I even managed to build a new computer last year although it took me 2 hours just to fit the CPU cooler.
If I have an annoyance where computers are concerned it is a Netbook with the FN key over to the left and most of the keys that work with it over to the right.
Hopefully by the time you have worked out your own tips and tricks you will no longer need them.
