I'm guessing they both handle line wrapping the same way...

In message bodies I replace all "\r"'s with "<br>"'s. They both must place a \r (maybe \n too but I don't check for those) when the text reaches the edge of the textarea to keep the text from overflowing where "modern" browsers handle the word wrap automatically without introducing new return characters.
Just guessing though. I feel like that's a simple hackish way I would do it if I was creating a text area in QB.
IF cursor.x > textArea.width THEN
textArea.text = textArea.text + "\r"
cursor.x = textArea.x
cursor.y = cursor.y + 1
Just interesting it didn't just keep track of where the line breaks were in the string while filling out the form and then remove the auto-generated ones on form submit. I guess that would be extra bloat and overhead though on browsers were every Kb is needed.

Some would do exactly that. The one I use, Xnews, does it when I tell it to. You'd have to scroll horizontally to keep reading or if your reader was advanced enough make it rewrap the post.
I miss those days where every kB was important. It seemed like it kept things much more focused.
is that right? I guess that could make sense, not many Usenet things probably going on these days.
One thing I hate with bandwidth being cheap is that everything is a YouTube video these days when it doesn't have to be. Looking up music transcriptions has become bad with this. I just want to see... more

My main computer is getting old.. or is old... I think it's like 7 years old now. Updates are good like you said for patching security things that are internet facing but not all applications need to be auto updated. For example, The IntelliJ IDE I use for Java on my laptop seems to get auto updated... more
That's when you want to upgrade and update. I'm running Sketchup version 8 because Sketchup Make 2017 is not different in any important way. It seems to still have all the same problems and just takes more resources to use. I'd have upgraded if it really WAS an upgrade (it was free after all), bu... more
seem to require a computer restart when the come. I tend to push them off for longer than IT would probably like due to me usually keeping 5 million things open and it being a pain to have to reopen everything after the update finishes.
That's a good point about the text vs video. Usually, I'm ju... more
disrupting the user's environment? Sometimes I get my 4-5 apps open and a restart just kills things. It also destroys my short term memory of where things were and how they were. Sometimes I don't want to save *yet*, I'm trying something and don't want the clutter on my disk. (How many people ha... more
