    I did NOT know it was "a murder of crows." Can't believe I learned something useful from a thread bomb!

    As a former resident of the State of Georgia, this comes as absolutely no surprise to me.

    ^ No, there really are people that clueless, and I wouldn't even have to go all the way to Georgia to find some.

    It is - I use it nearly every day, but it's not always very helpful when you're trying to track down the source of an animated image.

    I vaguely remember reading something about the Google Image tool smiki describes:

    but I've recently been using Opera and, sure enough, the camera icon isn't there. Do you know offhand whether it works in Firefox?

    This statement by Darth Duck tickled my funny bone so I had some fun with it.

    Yup, I have Firefox also installed, and I've checked, and it worked. Well, Firefox is the best I guess (this was one thing Explorer could have had better, but alas). There is even a little keyboard icon, which pops out as a little keyboard, for Cyrillic letters, considering it opened my country's google home page for some reason. Aaaand... there is even a message there explaining the "search by image" feature. I guess it's a relatively new feature, maybe a couple of months... that's how long I know about it anyway. :shrug:

    Anyway, for some reason I like using Opera.

    A couple of months sounds about right. I found Google's page about it and it says this:

    Sounds like it would be similar to the way TinEye works.

    George Lucas announced today that the blu-ray changes will now include Betty White and friends as part of the Jedi Order. :D

    It would be better than most of the other changes his made.

    For some reason the BBS is not letting me post any of this without this first paragraph I am writing. I keep getting "The message you have entered is too short. Please lengthen your message to at least 1 characters." no matter what I try to do...

    LAME.

    Anyway. Here's what I was trying to post, let's see if it works:

    It's because you can't just post quotes. You need to add original content.

    Even if I artificially created that quote? LAME.

    TrekBBS can't distinguish. It just sees the quote tags.
