    Again there's a message - on this forum, with apostrophes in the title that are deleted automatically, and can make the title meaningless.

    -Re: how to cut out a small part of a -

    I can't get rid of Ukraina ( no joking! )

    by GyuriFT Online Now Mar 10, 2015 at 4:27 AM

    Same story as with Russia. Just for the (bad) joke's stake did try to change the color of Ukraine to "green" or "grey".
    It stays firmly with the "blue", no matter, what. Except that it can be "red".

    So the problems with Russia and Ukraine:

    - Russia can't be turned red
    - Ukraine can't be turned green

    Oh, my... I just realized, both places have something to do with "green" (Makhno) and red ("bolsheviks").

    So... please be less political more technical... and fix the bug!

    Thanks

    (btw: my grand-grandma was beheaded by Makhno in person during a pogrom... at least so the family story goes on)

    San Diego Forum Post Disappearance

    by bocmaxima Online Now Yesterday

    Since this was some of the more regular posters on the thread, I thought I'd try here. It got ridiculous, so I unsubscribed, but there was a post with a question about a domed building in San Diego. I couldn't find in browsing the site, but I found it on Google, so it was there and it has been indexed:
    google.com/webhp?sourceid=ch...

    I was specifically curious about the consensus on the question because, I'm in San Diego now, at a hotel with a rooftop patio, and I have a really good view of the building in question. However, in looking at satellite views, I can't figure out exactly what it is. I remember I guessed the new Central Library and, from what I can see now, that appears to be about where it should be.

    Any insight on this?

    Not sure why the thread disappeared. If you click on the link that shows in Google, the post isn't found.
