....and we are still on page 100.  Seriously, why doesn't everyone change their settings to 50 posts per page?

Man. I had four strips of bacon yesterday. Was one automatically undercooked, one automatically overcooked? No, let's put a stop to that right here, all four strips were excellent.

I actually like smaller pages for mafia, because if I'm reading a bunch of stuff and have to leave in the middle, it's easier to find where I was.

25 is ample as a default, and it makes people talking about page numbers much easier to track - especially for forum games like Mafia and whatnot where page numbers are often referenced. If the default were something silly like 10 (I'm looking at you, GFAQs) then I'd agree, but here... 25 is fine.

you probably fold the corners of your books for place markers too, instead of just memorizing where you are at.

that works.  but now, back to randomness, this app is absolutely ridiculous.  (ignoring all of the technical problems still facing the app)

Wow, that's...

"Ignore No More! is an app that helps parents to re-establish an open line of communication with their children."

/facepalm

Really, you're going to go with that?

And yet they're going to end up making money hand over fist selling to non-tech-savvy parents... while the kids disable it in multiple ways that get around it.

Alright, so Excel/Google Docs buffs, I need some help. I'm trying to upload some data onto a website - in particular a wiki. There's a spreadsheet that has all the data, so I've written some formulae that put it all into nice, easy to copy-paste cells which do everything like making the tables, inserting the relevant images, all that jazz nice and easily. I was pretty happy it was all lined up and ready to work perfectly, so I went to copy and paste the data in...

And for some reason, regardless of if I copy from Excel or Google Spreadsheets, the data gets extra quotation marks around each and every cell that I'm trying to paste. Which is a lot of them (in total it should come to around 1,000 or so, far too many to remove by hand). From a little looking online I gather it occurs due to having line breaks in the cells (kinda necessary for formatting). But I can't find a solution that works sensibly.

So the question: Does anyone know any way to stop automatically adding quote marks when pasting data that spans multiple lines in a single cell? Either an Excel or a docs solution is fine.

Bringing this question back up.

Try pasting into Word.  For me, when I paste into Word it doesn't happen if I select the "Merge formatting" or "Source formatting" options.

Or could you just paste into notepad++ first?  Newlines should be preserved, which should enter into new cells when pasted into Excel, but no further formatting should happen.

Or you need to preserve line breaks within a cell?  I can't quite picture exactly what you want to do.

Hey silverspawn, "RIP" stands for "rest in peace" and "piece" has a different meaning than "peace". For example:

Lemme get a piece of dat peace pie!

And

Imma bake some peace pie in dis piece!

I hope that clears things up.
