Having been at the sharp end of fundraising I know what an incredible achievement that is, many congratulations and well done.

Is there an overall target?

MaggieD says:

Thanks P ..... the little white cat is Woody (Alex's cat) though I doubt he would do anything quite as undignified as dance ....

Why does that A symbol always come up when I type £ .... how can I get rid of it?

MaggieD says:

Sean, not sure if there is an overall target, I was told that £20,000 had been raised so far (not sure over what period of time though) ..... but, hey, yes it is good news ....

Rich says:

Good question. Only real way is to edit it once it's sent, email renders some of the symbols strangely.

And that really is a staggering figure, kudos all round.

Rich: did try editing it ..... still wont go away ..... nevermind ....

Rich says:

Mysterions! Just tried editing myself and yeah, it adds it in. Noticed this problem before. As with any of these occurances I personally blame Thatcher.

Oh No .... I just added tags to my image and that A symbol has come back next to the £ sign .... that Mrs T is very sneaky .....

hildegard says:

The sneaky symbols can usually be handweeded at the "preview" stage when editing posts.
And £20K already? Fantastic. :)

MaggieD says:

Hildegard: I did try editing this after posting but it did not work, then some lovely moderator sorted it for me, but when I added tags it reverted to the original A symbol with £ .... Rich blames it on Mrs Thatcher, and I tend to agree .... she is a bit of an old witch (to say the least) .....

9th Feb 2007, 18:28

hildegard says:

Yeah - they turn up pretty much every time you edit your post & have to be handweeded each time.

Perhaps you (& Rich) might be interested in the Thatcher Memorial Ballroom project? As soon as (ding dong) the witch is dead & buried, we hope to get as many people as possible in proper Come Dancing fig, to dance over her grave to the strains of a wind-up gramophone...

..... polishing my dancing shoes, even as I type .... (good thing I have a black keyboard) ....

9th Feb 2007, 18:37

Rich says:

I'm there. I'd had similar plans, possibly involving a public convenience of some kind. Mayhap the two could be integrated somehow...

9th Feb 2007, 20:41

MaggieD says:

Like the way you are thinking Rich ..... OK some of us might be at the incontinence stage .... but we know where to direct it ....

9th Feb 2007, 20:56

WTG :-)

9th Feb 2007, 21:01
