Very clever this technology stuff isn't it :D

You only realised that now, Shoto? :shock: It even did that on the 'other' forum...it's standard forum stuff really :o

You can use the URL tags if you want to do things like THIS

You can also include long URLs in your post without making the post too wide by doing that sort of thing ;)
