This is hilarious Peter. How come I get to be the cross one?

On a more serious note - there's some very good advice here...

It's true though Ruth. You are an academic and copyright and plagiarism issues really bug you. It's why we love you!

Peter just made this up, but it is such a good idea that I support it.

1) There will be an award!
2) I will fund it!
3) It must include "I must never copy text into my site unless I take it through Notepad" and "all new code must be tried on a trial page first"!

Fabulous. Can't wait to see what people come up with!

Yes, this is great! I would like to add one more possible line to the jingle... "Can you please try this in Firefox". That's my two cents!

peter gave me some code,
now my home page wont load.
I'd kill him and make him pay,
If only Thailand wasnt so far away.
so now 1 remember these 3 simple rules
to save myself looking a fool...
Use a trial page first or your index page is cursed,
Copy text through a notepad or you will feel sad
and if it still wont tow the line, run it in firefox, works for me every time.

BASED ON A TRUE STORY

You might as well just give me the prize now!

It's true. So far Lee looks like the run away winner!

But according to Peter, you still have until Tuesday the 10th. Anyone want to come and steal the top spot from him?

I will accept anything that can be embedded on a SynthaSite page:
YouTube videos,
MP3 players,
Slideshows with lyrics and illustrative graphics. . .

(And what must you do with the code first?)

Hey Synthasiters,

Looks as if we have real competition. Sounds above as if Monique is preparing her own submission. The beginnings are emerging.

That is a statement on how people can submit their entries, but I can turn it into a song as well if you like.

Ed can draw, paint, build real houses and playhouses, build an OK website and even write hundreds and hundreds of love poems in my life but never had I written a song. I just wanted to spark the thread earlier and was joking about my entering... I will be bowing out as I have a sizable workload already... hmmm

.
.
.
.

So I see that Monique is to offer the winner a prize
I am sure that she will figure it out as she is so wise

This single thread and simply wonderful reply
Can only go up and make all who try reach for the sky

To dream, imagine and build the best site that they can
Is and will always be the site builders best plan

Online one day or night we all found a wonderful friend in Synthasite
So easy, user friendly and FREE it was to all a true delight

Always using Firefox
We find that it truly rocks

Hundreds of pictures, widgets, codes and sometimes the pesky error
Can give us insomnia, cause night sweats, tremors and even terror

If you have never had a code interact with your page consider yourself lucky
That just proves you have never needed a test page and think you are so plucky

One day it will happen to you as it has surely happened to us all
You will be working on your largest page and it is then that you will fall

You will I am sure wish that you had used the many times before mentioned notepad
To transfer all your text, code and content so that you don't ever again become so sad

Too late
You need to recreate

That page is lost
no use keeping your fingers crossed

Copy paste it won't work if your page won't load
All because some little freakin code

Delete, delete, delete
There is no way to cheat

No way to turn back time and freeze frame
Sadly my friend it is you that is to blame

Look at it this way buddy old pal and good friend of mine
Each time it happens you learn something new and your talents shine

Yeah it sucks, stinks and ruins your night
But it could be worse and you could feel contrite

Have a cigarette, beer or take a long walk but make sure you take a break
Come to the forums and read before you ask because to not do so would be a mistake

Pretty much everything you will ever run into has been run into before
If you will only use the built in search feature you will build up a good rapport

If you have enough errors or a half dozen times for a single page rebuild
You too will be most learned and wonderfully skilled

You will spend all your time helping others and alieving their grief
And before too long it is you that they will be calling their chief

My friend it truly won't take long
So sit down and sing us your song

LOL

Happy site building
Ed

Nice job rhyming "before" and "rapport"! The grief you poor site builders suffer with bad code makes me think we should bring back a better version of the HTML validator. Am I right?

Does anyone know of a word that rhymes with "orange" ?

Hi Monique,

Sorry for the silence on this issue. Still shuddering! A validator that identifies and allows previously functional but identified as illegal code as separate from attempted new illegal code.would be ideal.

Orange is one of those words that famously has nothing perfectly to rhyme with it.

Are you trying to say that if you have a any code or texts copy it and past it in notepade and than copy the code or texts from notepade and past in your website it will work best in our websites.

PLEAS PLEAS PLEAS PLEAS PLEAS let me know am i right or wrong.

PLEAS PLEAS PLEAS PLEAS PLEAS PLEAS PLEAS?

Honey,

You are correct 100%!

Honey. May I ask what is your first language?
Please don't feel you have to answer this but you could participate in this contest in your own language. Monique is very clever and she will understand.

Daie pragtig Peter,

Ek dink Monique gaan bietjie sukkel om daai jingle te verstaan.
Jy het n' paar spel foute gemaak maar dis ok, niemand sal weet nie.
Die tweede "s" in Synthasite is ook n' groot "S". Soos in SynthaSite.

Honey,

My language is English and I don't speak or understand Urdu. Urdu is a very difficult language to translate but I'm sure Monique picked it up when she travelled Pakistan for a few days :(

Honey we would like to hear your submission (attempt) in the contest in Urdu.

Hi Honey,

The contest is:

You make a song. You have to mention three (3) things. They are:

(i) "I must never copy text into my site unless I take it through Notepad"
(ii) "all new code must be tried on a trial page first"
(iii)"Can you please try this in Firefox"

When you make the song you can either put it into a webpage and tell us the address of the web page
or post anything (here) that can be embedded (put) into a SynthaSite page:
For example:
YouTube videos,
MP3 players,
Slideshows with lyrics (song words) and illustrative graphics (pictures)

The contest closes on Tuesday at midnight. Very good luck to you.
