    I was in the middle of typing up a response to somebody.
    I was doing my homework on the answer, and by the time
    I hit enter, OT had booted me off.
    I tried to copy the answer, because I had a feeling that
    would happen, but it doesn't let you do that.

    So I typed it up again, and by the time I was done
    it had booted me again!!!!!!!! ARRRRRRRRGGGGGHHHH!!!!!!!!!!


    Do I have to type up every long answer that I give in notepad first??

    Hmmmm... I just typed some text and clicked on that.
    It still didn't give me the option of copying.

    OOPS! Nevermind, I clicked on the one to the left instead of the one
    to the right.
    Thanks!

    This is something I once made that adequately expresses what I think of this thread. Warning: http://tinyurl.com/arxsd

    Wow, has a striking resemblance to Emmet Brown, himself!

    Where'd you get his picture?

    I took that in my bathroom in Moscow, in the winter, when I was bodybuilding full time and on a serious cutting diet that involved eating several pounds of fibrous vegetables a day. If you notice, the little toilet stall room that was off my hallway was really small, and the poo doesn't rest under water after it drops, it rests right out in the open air. So the shit stink from this bastard was overwhelming, but for art's sake I took it, and piled the paper towards the front so I could grab my camera and record Emmet's likeness for all to see.

    keyboard shortcut? I hate using the mouse when I'm typing. It just seems pointless to move from kb to mouse and back to kb and find the home row keys again. CTRL+C copy, CTRL+V paste.

    command-a, command-c, and if it messes up, command-v

    ctrl-a, ctrl-c, and if it messes up, ctrl-v
