I have selected the option to hide my email, yet under my user information visible in a post, if you hover the mouse over the envelope icon, it shows my email address...

Is it just because it's me looking at my own icon for email?

Or is this a bug in the forum software?

But.. the Shadow knows :-)
Admins can see it, but non-admin members cannot see your mail address.

Hmmm... when I logged into his account I could see it...

That's just freakin' great!

Now look what you've made me do! (But at least I'm protected now)

Better be careful there, NC! #-o Any mathematician could look at the keyboard in the photo and write a simple Markov chain superharmonic Chi squared Gaussian predictor-corrector hypermanifold algorithm to determine which keys you press most often and from that, write a vector based scalar Legendre-Chebyshev Arnoldi subspace algorithm with chaotic exponential eigenvalue filtering of sparsely dense matrices to determine your email address and password. I thought everyone knew that! :roll: Geesh! Haven't you learned anything from "NUMB3RS"?!? ](*,)

Just to prove it, I've written the algorithms. Your email address and password are:

email:      *****************
passwd:   ***********

See? Live and learn, NC.  Live ... and ... learn.

All you've actually accomplished is protect some of your hardware from alien cosmic rays. Geesh! Haven't you watched any old movies?!?! (MST3K, for example?)

It also looks like the uniform one of the alien women (whom Capt. James T. Kirk kissed, of course) wore in one of the original Star Trek epsiodes.

K... :mrgreen: ;) ;) ;) ;)

And you think THAT'S the keyboard I actually have connected to my computer???

Why do you think I wrap my head in aluminum foil? Clarity of thought... only with clarity of thought (by blocking those alien mind probing rays) would I know to show a fake keyboard...

After the movie Signs, a physics guy pointed out that putting foil on your head would most likely amplify the signals not block them kinda like when you used foil to make TV Rabbit Ears work better... (I can hear it now, what are Rabbit Ears...:-)

In any case, you would need to use something like Lead instead...

Ah, that explains why my head always felt hot with my aluminum foil hat...

I remember rabbit ears...

I remember vacuum tubes, and going to the drugstore to test them...

I remember Heathkit...

I remember those when they were free in college, then you had to buy them out of a vending machine.

Remember paper tape readers... 8 1/2" floppies, 5 1/4" floppies...

I've toggled the boot sequence into a DEC PDP-xx, whatever model?, old computer with real core memory... ah, those were the days...

Oh yeah. Remember those things, including the DEC, like it was yesterday. (I guess that's good, though.) My first PC was a Commodore 64 :oops:... bought it for "only" $300 because I really didn't think the price could go any lower. #-o (High school physics teacher made us learn how to use the slide rule ... guess they didn't see the calculator on the horizon.)

I used a slide rule in freshman chemistry (college)--when the first "4-banger" electronic calculators cost upwards of $3-500...

I remember the Commodore PET computer...

Oh yeah. When my dad bought one, he guarded it with his life. We kids used it on pain of death if we broke it.
