    My daughter moved to Cardiff Bay in March - still much to discover.

    I love the Bay. Some great places around there. Good pub, Eli Jenkins. We watched the power boat races there last summer. I'm a big Who fan... but the band... not the Doctor.

    Some of Dr Who's relics used to be in some caves that run under the house where I live. I don't know if they are still here. The caves have become a bit of a tourist attraction as they were used in the second world war - like the underground had ...

    I'll be popping along there. I've had my book reviewed but a long time ago now. It was one of those things I had to put aside while I was ill. Think I'll know it's done, when it's done. Not ready yet though.

    Nope, will look at it another time. Am focusing on following episodes now. Perhaps I'll treat myself and send the whole 3 episodes in for formal review when I'm done and happy. but for now, hey, it's almost xmas. Why stress. :o)

    Hi Nibs I've just come to this. Tell me, have you sorted it out yet? if not the other thing to try is, copy from your computer document as normal, then before pasting into the box click on the HTML tab and paste your work in from there. Don't forget ...

    Thanks everyone. I've tried loads of suggestions above. Nothing has worked. Even in bogstandard Word. Giving up on the whole idea. Shall have to find another avenue for help with the script. It's only a small 16 pager so really not worth the cost of ...

    Nibs, back to basics. I'd assumed you'd tried the (previously) failsafe method on Windows, but perhaps not? First, use any browser but Internet Explorer. Firefox is good. Then: C&P your text into Notepad. Re-select from Notepad. C&P from Notepad ...

    Watching this blog carefully for useful tips. I use Firefox - which seems most compatible with the Cloud - but always have difficulties copying and pasting from Msn Word! Aaaarrrggghhhhhh! Thinking my PC may be a bit like me ... too old!!

    "Caducean Whisks" commented on Nibs's Blog "Ok I don't get it".
    Nibs, there's another way around it. If you're after a serious crit of your script, why not put it in Crits on the Forum? Blogs, as far as I'm aware, are usually for more informal discussion. Why struggle with something that's not going to do the ...

    Dear Nibs, also if you mean by a "short script" something that contains specific formatted fields:~ I have to tell you that none of that will make it onto here. Even carefully re-formatting doc fields into a rich text (that looks ok) once here ...

    Random suggestion: can you cut and paste into this blog box if you attempt to edit it? This has worked for me sometimes when the blog function isn't working properly.

    OK, here's something to try - probably best on one of your own PCs rather than work. Click on the 'Customise Settings' icon (three horizontal lines, top right, after the address box) and select Settings from the drop down menu. At the bottom of the ...

    Nibs, there is nothing funny in total economic collapse. The joke, for what it's worth is here.

    Hi Nibs, no, I'm not feeding Woody dog food - not biscuits, anyway. He foraged that one all by himself - who knows where from?!

    Hi Nibs. Thanks for encouraging mail. I am so pleased that you are seeing more clearly! Wonky vision is really scary. Thank goodness for caring nurses.
    Have scan on Tuesday - start the gunk meds tonight! Good thing I wrote it on here or I would forget again!
    Healing vibes to you. TLC for yourself and I will give some to me.
    I went to a church concert last night - it would have been easier not to go but it was worth making the effort just to see/inhlae the blue in the magnificent stained glass window. I have been in that town for 25 years and never been into the church - I am used to a village parish church so was quite bowled over by the size of the window. The first part of the evening was not so good but the Goodall's Requiem was very moving.
