View Full Version : The problem with 20Ts

Ah that got you clicking didn't it 20T? "What what!? A problem with me?" I hear you say. Yes indeedilly.
For some reason every time I try to reply a post @)t has contributed too it takes like 3 or 4 tries... it seems to only be posts 20T's posted on though... anybody else experiencing this problem? Exclusively or generally? We need to know if the PHP needs re-tweaking...

I've had some problems with it taking a long time to post but I assumed it was because the few threads I'm on right now are very, very, very long.

Oh, that's rich! I'm your gremlin, the thorn in your side! Let's look at some of the things that set me apart from the others...

Ummmm.... uh...

The only thing I can think of is the fact my name starts with a number. Could that be ferqing things up?

Heh, yeah! Get in my way and you'll get ROLLED, sucka!

If my number is the problem, mayhaps we can change the 20 to Twenty? Hopefully that won't exceed the length limit... Twenty Ton Squirrel... nineteen characters total.

I havent had any problems like that. Of course I havent tried replying to any long threads yet, so that mioght be the problem.... I have never had this problem at other boards though, so I dont think that would be it haha

I would have to vote this as the biggest understatement of the year so far. :D Nothing bad meant by this, just a personal observation. In fact I enjoy reading 20T's posts. ;)

Yeah, I admit it... I love the sound of my own typing. I drive my wife crazy when I say I'm gonna write a "short" e-mail that ends up taking two pages. What can I say? I DO IT ALL FOR YOU, the beloved audience!

Twenty Ton Squirrel ????

That just ain't right!!!

No problems on my end, or at least any that I have noticed...but then again, I usually have something like three or four windows open and when I post or change, I just go to the next one that has finished!!

Tell me none of you don't do that either...

well, what's 20 ton converted to bytes? I thing it could be a buffer overload!
