    Btw, sorry bout your cold.


    It looks like script and the letters kinda jumble... maybe its the cough medicine, or its design is the fail.

    Thank you.

    Yeah. It's the ensuing unintentional hilarity that tends to follow-- especially since damned near everything advertised on the Internet is either a dating service or a gray market pharmacy.

    More than half the banner ads in the Middle East forum are for Muslim mail-order-brides.

    That's a "clear type" problem.
    What operating system are you using?

    You don't have to install anything.
    It is already a default font and installed and why you may be having problems reading it would be because "clear type" isn't on.
    You turn it on and all of a sudden my font as well as many web pages that use "clear type" fonts become easier to read.


    (I am only bolding to make it easier to read at this time.)

    Like yours it is my opinion. Except my opinion is based on actual military service. Yours is based on, well I have no idea.

    Well if we have a "don't ask don't tell" going on right now I would say it is not a problem since gay people are still serving. It was also not a problem for the 12 years I served.

    Who said anything about "homophobic" people? Just because someone does not want someone of the same sex looking at them sexually is not "homophobic." Do you even know what the term means? It has nothing to do with fear.

    Well lets use prop 8 in CA as a yard stick. So you are saying basically that 53% of the people in CA are homophobic? What would the numbers be for the rest of the country?

    The military is much more conservative than CA, so how many "homophobes" are you thinking a "few" is?

    ho⋅mo⋅pho⋅bi⋅a:

    unreasoning fear of or antipathy toward homosexuals and homosexuality.


    This has nothing to do with fear of homosexuals, and everything to do with what people think are acceptable morals.

    Quote Originally Posted by Kandahar View Post

    whether they are Christians or not is irrelevant.

    Someones religion has much to do with how they perceive homosexuality.

    Quote Originally Posted by Kandahar View Post

    They don't "pretend they are not in the military. They don't want to know who is or isn't. Neither do I.

    Even though I have friends who are gay, I do not and would not live with them. I do not approve of the lifestyle, they know this. Why would I want to live etc with someone who is gay in the military?

    No, your eyes fail, especially since the font was designed to be easily read.
    Glad to hear it wasn't a clear type problem though. Next question is, is it configure appropriately?

    Although I do wonder if you even checked because you thought you had to install something.
