How do you answer a question?greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread
Sorry, I'm new to this bulletin board forum stuff. How do I post an answer to someone's question so that it appears below their question? Thanks, Johan

Welcome "hear". This style of Web page is different from some others, but it is much more convenient to review and read.
Look all the way at the bottom of the thread of comments. [Hint: click once in the text area, then use your "page down" key, it's faster than scrolling with your mouse.]
Read the instructions, then "push" (select) the "reply" phrase. A new page appears. Read the instructions. Fill in your choosen email address and name, as a courtesy include where you are from. Enter an answer. Read the instructions. Then push the [Submit] button. (Do this only once.) You will be asked if you want to save your email address and name, if so follow the instructions tosave these to a local file on your PC.
To return to the other threads, use the [Back] button on your browser.
As a final exam, I'd ask if these instructions were understood, but if you didn't understand them, you could not reply back, so any form of readable answer is assumed to be a passing grade.

Your instructions were very clear, Robert. Good job! :) Will probably help fellow lurkers who would like to comment but aren't sure how. Blondie
