As a matter of fact, even if doesn’t appear in the website given by mithril, posting only smileys is against the rules of this forum. Mostly because it,s not very pertinent, and it takes time to read useles posts. Even more so for the poor mods who have to keep an eye on everything to keep the forum Nice and tidy 😉
February 21, 2006 at 6:13 pm #41498
Ya but guess what Patrick
I did those smileys with my key board. just to try out the tips from that.
February 21, 2006 at 6:20 pm #41499
No problem. I was just pointing out something. The Off-topic forum anyway is a little more relax about rules, even thoughbasic netiquette applies.
Note that all the smileys in the dictionnary will appear as a yellow face on the board. and some are coded by text string between colons like 👿 is coded by : evil : (remove the spaces).
But it would be nice to have people conforming to the netiquette, because the clean-up is usually time consuming for the mods….

I dont want to break any rules because I want to stick around I love this forum. I learn something new every time I visit!
And its hard for some people to realize that some people are still babes with computers.
when I was a teen we only had pin ball. and we used something called typewriters in highschool.
and the newest thing replacing eight tracks were tapes but I didnt have a tape until about 1979.
I got my first computer in 2000. But was too busy then to join forums.
And I am not even that old.

I got my first computer in 2000, too! And of course we all love this forum, except for the panic-studies who only join for a quick answer to a homework question. I vote that we take over the internet by force and make it our own private empire. Vive le biologie! 😈

Yeah! Let’s make it a french speaking biology only area. We may feel lonely though… 🙄
February 24, 2006 at 5:11 pm #41704
I dont know much french, but my husband always said i speak spanish with a french accent.
I think it is such a beautifull language and both my daughters have french names.
My Great, great,
grandmother was a Bouvier. does that count to be in the all french bio club? lol
February 24, 2006 at 6:22 pm #41711
Oui oui! Vive le biologie francais!
The only requirement to becoming a member our private little French-speaking bio club is to be able to speak French.
Allons, enfants de la Biologie, le jour de la science est t’arrive!
(A rather shameless adaption of the French national anthem!)
Come, children of Biology, the day of science has arrived!

I know a site that could use that information. It’s flooded with people that type in capitals, fail with grammar and generally don’t know how to act on a forum or a chatroom.
I might have to pass it on, if I may. <.<

I am working with RPMI cells which are suspension cells.
Yesterday I noticed 3/4 of the cells were all adhering to the bottom of the T75 plate I used. I also notice the CO2 supply was out during this time. Is there any correlation between this two, and what could be causing the cells to adhere?

How do you post questions?

Years beetween posts in this thread. What a shame.
I submit herewith some suggestions for "How to Post" in the spirit of scientia, Latin for "truth."
1. Don’t suggest that someone else is "ignorant" or "stupid" because he disagrees with you.
It is entirely possible that you are wrong or at the very least, he is not.
2. Graciously acknowledge others who help, encourage, or compliment you, not just here, but everywhere in your daily activities.
When has anyone here thanked a grocery clerk: "Thanks for feeding me!" These poor clerks bust their chops and all they hear is "You’re out of this" or "These prices are too high." They’re the last link in the food chain. Brighten their day with a cheerful "Thanks for feeding me." It’s a gif that gives both ways.
3. Don’t simply dismiss other opinions with some Talking Point, such as "You’re cherry picking the quotes" or "Fallacy of the Argument From Authority" or "Argument From Incredulity."
Everybody cherrypicks quotes, and there’s nothing wrong with doing that, provided the citation was made in good faith, and not taken out of context.
Most everything we know has been learned from authority.
Finally, the specious argument from incredulity posits ignorance onto the person designated incredulous by his supposed intellectual superiority. The most learned humans who have ever lived have always expressed their own incredulity, and with good reason.
It is nothing to be ashamed of, this incredulity of our universe. It is appreciation of knowledge gained.
And I thank you for your time and reading of my ideas.
