in reply to Strange message in chatterbox

Simple version: don't try to answer messages from root.

slightly more precise: the Monastery's gears, treadmills, belts and other clockworks don't include any mechanism for root to actually process any message you might send to it. So don't.


If you didn't program your executable by toggling in binary, it wasn't really programming!

    Thank you. I was not aware that I tried to respond to such a message. But you know: The older the shaky I am. So what do I know where I klicked on... ;-)

Chatterbox?
[Corion]: Hmmm - I thought we'd made the textarea CSS-sized to 100% a long time ago?!
[Corion]: ... nope, it isn't
[LanX]: heh ... 11.78 popes per square mile ...never thought I might find miles handy
[ambrus]: TCLion: it's to make people write non-short writeups in an external editor and save it to a local file. otherwise people will complain that they had a very insightful extended reply but their browser died just when they were almost ready posting it.
[ww]: ++ambrus "their browser died just when...."
[ambrus]: ww: or they accidentally closed the window, or something. the exact excuse doesn't matter.
[ambrus]: you hear that on web forums frequently.
