IMPORTANT..LENGTH OF FORUM MESSAGESgreenspun.com : LUSENET : Dirck Halstead : One Thread
I have just discovered that the current configuration of our server up at MIT, will only allow 8,000 characters in any indvidual FORUMS message.
We are planning to upgrade that feature in the next few week to accomdate unlimited posts, but in the meantime, if you get back a message saying you have exceeded the length of allowed, simply break your message into two parts. The second part will show up as an answer, but it will all be there. As an example, see the following post on SONY vs. PANASONIC digicams.
