in reply to The Great Escape

As the Site How To states, you can use [ and ] by using HTML in writeups:
[ for [
] for ]

The chatterbox is a bit more difficult though*... I do something like [[] for a normal [ (which shows as [ ) and ] can be typed normally.
* this was done on purpose, to prevent certain abuses

--== N ==--

    I've read the Howto, thanks. I was directing my post more towards the chatterbox. [/&#93 hasn't worked in the chatterbox for a long time, and it still doesn't (i checked).
    Also, I've noticed if I had my signature like so:
    -- [ar0n]

    where the brackets would be interpreted as links, the pm-engine simply wouldn't fill in my .sig.

Chatterbox?
[choroba]: Why don't they use tire chains?
[perldigious]: First snow, probably not prepared right away choroba.
[stevieb]: it's Quebec... they do weird stuff there :) In the mountains, it is *mandatory* for trucks to use tire chains. Many passenger vehicles do as well (but it's not mandatory for them)
[perldigious]: That stuff can hit fast... like what we just got where I'm at. Saw a few people who had slid OUT of the roundabout I have to drive through to get to work, not used to the ice yet, take awhile to get the hang of it again and make vehicle adjustments.
[stevieb]: man, when the roads are glare ice, I don't even bother going to work or out... unless I absolutely have to, or was already out in the first place
[choroba]: Tire chains are mandatory here in mountains, and the only unprepared each year are gritters
[stevieb]: I have a 3 day winter survival kit in my vehicle in the event I get snowed in in the mountains (which has happened before due to avalanches closing the roads (and once in the summer due to a massive forest fire that trapped us
[perldigious]: a handful of people in my work area did not make it, but I live pretty close and it's flat the whole way, so I didn't have any trouble. The roundabout is the worst thing I have to negotiate.
[thezip]: G'day all!
[perldigious]: Well, that and dodging the people who forget how ice works right away. :-)
