I'm not sure if this is a dumbass question or not, but I figured I'd be safe and put it here just in case it is. I would love an answer, though, if it's okay...

When I click 'Log in', it brings up the blanks in which to put my username and password, but no cursor in the username field. How big a deal would it be to rectify that? Would it be too complicated to explain on a message board? Would it piss off a curmudgeonly web guy to ask him to rectify that?

I guess that's technically three potentially-dumbass questions, and it probably seems really anal and stupid, but I swear it has nothing to do with me wanting it changed here. I use an appointment system for the academic advisors in my office, and it does the same thing. Not only that, it makes you log back in every time you stop using it for a few minutes. An answer to this...er, these questions would help make my job a good deal easier.

TIA.

Who knows what that is, but I DO know that a 'Chilcote' or 'Chilcotes' make up two parts of the Rev Hydra.

It's Welsh for "tilling a field without pay, generally as part of a barter or exchange of favors."

Nice try, Grant, but that's not what I found.
I know, I should have just googled for pwn in the first place.

By the way, pwnc, with a C, is actually welsh for point or question!

Who did "Pony", the dog, belong to?
Did the man in "Shanty-Town" really only "Hit about 5 words, that time"?
Did I use to many commas?

No, that was the date of the 1919 mass sponge migration.

I wouldn't consider this "Dumbass", just misdirected:

Why couldn't miniature versions of breast implants be used as
spinal disc replacement?


This is my dumbass question:

Who is Darkman?

that's sweet.
my question was meant on a metaphysical level, really.

that 's what comes from spending so much time rereading old topics... sorry if that gets you into trouble!
