My eyes are dim, I cannot see... Answered

You may not know, but I wear contacts. They're monthly disposables - I can leave them in 24/7 for most of a month, as long as I go without for a coupld of day in between. Unfortunately, I seem to have lost my spectacles. Since last I wore them, I have been to Cornwall (other side of the country) and on cub camp (in a field). I fear my spectacles are lost somewhere between. Being massively short-sighted, I am consequently having trouble seeing things. I have "Ctrl+ed", but I still have my nose just a hand-span from the screen and key-board. So, if I accidentally post gibberish tonight, and the next night or two, blame it on the mole-eyes. UPDATE: I have a headache, g'night all.

It works in preview, but not in the actual posting. This has "always" been the case (at least since Nacho and I wrote the Text Formatting I'ble).

Yeah, I have been seeing this for quite a few weeks, but it does seem to work inside the description of a thread (that the author creates) *shrug*

It LOOKS good in preveiw and then you post and, oops, where'd it go?

Do you not have a spare pair of spectacles/contacts anywhere that you could use? I always bring a pair when I'm going anywhere far from home. (I too am very, very short sighted)

Because I always wear the contacts, the glasses are the spares. I think i'll pop to the optician's for a new pair at the weekend.

The bold should help you read this comment.

What happens after 1 month with your contacts? do they stop working?

They're disposable - instead of cleaning and re-using, I just bin them. I have to have time off each month to prevent blood vessels growing across my cornea.

Hmmm, I wore contacts at one time too, but even though I do not anymore, I do, as I did then, always have another pair; meaning the one before the last change, kept in a safe place; and although they are not the best for seeing, they save me headaches.....in fact, I am wearing a pair of older one's now, until I get a call that my new trifocals are done....just so I can see the screen without having to tilt my head back....
