ebuild is sad to announce its closure - it has become too time and resource intensive to develop, manage and maintain.

However, ebuild will remain on-line in archive mode (ie no posting facilties) for several weeks so that users can use it as an information resource.

Right. :rolleyes:

But typos are bad enough with the increasing use of mobile devices (including iPads) and predictive text without having to decipher whether what appears to be a totally illegible "word" is actually a badly misspelled word, a typo, or a bodged-up smiley. :angry:

:rolleyes:

But a very useful post, Nick.

We've had a few posts where people have tried to express irony or indicate a half-joking reference and bemoaned the abseence of a smiley to get that across.
