Trig New Lookw/ amazon button

it strikes me that le mot juste for this positioning, etc. is to describe it as 'trig' a word that was a favorite of edward gorey's and who used it whenever apt. it seems to come from sailing and refer to a state of being shipshape, trim, neat and clean.

The other options flashed. Yigads.

And "trig" is Naval Officer's slang for what the ratings call "all squared away"; trigonometry, I'll bet.

Ten three-packs of my favorite soap (also through the above link), which has been discontinued by its manufacturer and is no longer available at Drugstore.com. But Amazon still has some!
MUCH easier to use....I just bought a new vacuum cleaner through it......
No, I am not telling which it is! :shhh: Next hurdle: where in my tiny New York apartment to store it.

I especially like the way the PMs are like hand-delivered. It's almost gracious.
Congratulations, and thanks.

As a slipshod typist and an endless tinkerer with text, I very much like the choice of Full Edit or Quick Edit.

Our logo file got wiped out in the upgrade, but my very technical friend told me about www.archive.org, which has a "Wayback Machine" that accesses the archive of web pages that are at least a year old. I was able to find an old Ballet Talk page, right-click on the logo, "Save File As," and upload this to the board using an nifty new feature.
I mention this because he told me that not knowing about www.archive.org was like not knowing about Google -- that's the price of getting info from true techies that you've known since your third day of college -- and I wanted to be sure everyone knew about it, too.

If anyone has any preferences, please post or PM/email me. Or if there's a way to make a clear background with Paint, I'd appreciate it if someone would tell me.

I typed the name of a video I need into the Amazon box and in no time I'd found it and, yeah, I bought it.
It's really handy.

I miss the Professor and Sherman.
