Any one can say "|457 |>057", it's just only true until the next person posts... ;)

so the obvious solution is, nothing else allowed. Everything has to be ascii art!

Ahh, I love monospaced fonts. I don't think they're ugly! :'( Are you insulting my favorite types of fonts? You wanna fight? Hehe...

Fixedsys is cool... and that new one, Lucidia Console, or something. How the heck do they come up with the names of these fonts, anyway? I mean, come on! "Times New Roman"???? "Arial"??? "Courier New"????? "Verdana"???? Okay, you see my point :)

I like Lucida Console (not sure if that's spelled right) too. Courier New is okay but getting boring to me now. Fixedsys is okay but annoying since it's not scalable (ie., not a TrueType font).

I used to sometimes have the problem of some websites using non-scalable (Microsoft) fonts (MS Serif, Fixedsys, etc.) on their web pages. I frequently increase the size of fonts in my browser to make them easier to read, and having non-scalable fonts keeps that from working right.

Fortunately, on non-Windows systems, those fonts will probably just be substituded for scalable fonts.

I use Fixedsys in notepad. I think it looks the best there.

i can't do alt+160 i get ''. i have to use alt+0160 to get ''. which is what caused burntfuse's confusing i am guessing.

Shizzle, that's what I meant. I type the zero without even thinking about it; it's so automatic...

Oh well, you knew what I meant. :)

What was is supposed to say?

Re: Re:

It seems to say that the 'leet' property of object 'ME' is false.

In other words, the person is saying about himself that he is 'not leet'. Whatever that means. I think it is a self-deprecating remark of some sort.

Maybe he means that Windows ME is not 1337. That is quite true.

Yeah, but variables can't begin with a number, so something like this might work...

Me.set1337(false);
Me.is1337=false;

One uses a method, one directly accesses the variable. I think the second is easier to do and is more efficient, but it's considered "good programming practice" to leave your variables private in Java and use a method (first way).

Gahh... AP Computer Science always comes back to haunt you, doesn't it? ;-)

You're right, I should have done "Me.is1337=false".

I got it working on my computer, but no matter how many spaces I put in, it still says that there are words >40 chars when I try to post it. :-( *hugs computer for comfort*

Add a space to the end of each line. If that doesn't work (it usually fixes the problem), then you might have to add a line of spaces down the middle of the ASCII art, which USUALLY doesn't ruin the picture too much, amazingly enough.

If you view the source, you can actually see what he meant to say because notepad is monospaced by default (unless you're a loser and you change it)

Same here. They were completely on-topic, and I think that this board is professional enough to not have to use it. See URL for one that needs this.

I thought the same thing too, but I found it with "article" in the archives a few times. Comment makes more sense, anyway... heh
