I have been noticing in quite a few of my posts now,when I look back at them,that there seems to be the odd words missing from them.Now I know I make mistakes in my typing.But some of these missing words,I remember typing in.Is it ,or could it be my computer causing this?

This seems to be happening enough,that you guys must think that I can't form proper sentences.But in most cases,I know I typed in the words.

Just kind of letting you know,so you don't think that I'm a total illiterate.

It's most likely on your end of things maynard. Perhaps you have a flakey keyboard. Try proof reading everything carefully before posting for a while to see if it's all there before you hit Post. I know I quickly proof read most of my posts but often come back later and find typos.

If I'm fighting insomnia, I find it relaxing to mess with Maynard's posts, KennyP's signature, and Brian's pictures. Kind of a fun game to see how long before they notice. Congrats, Maynard; you're the first to notice. (btw, I've been at this since Thanksgiving)

Just kidding, btw. I have no idea what is going on there.

I've been using a wireless keyboard for some of my posts, and it certainly gets flaky. Battery replacement, moving the receiver closer to the keyboard helps with that. My laptop has a tendency to add letters, cause I can't relax enough to only move one finger when typing. Beyond that, there is plenty that is just carelessness on my part.

I think you are right about that 'Nard!!

:shoot3: :loosing_it: You are the victim of an ever-growing E-madness known as 'Typing-lisp'!! :shoot2:

***You better report immediately to the 'GTtalk GEEK squad'TM for neurological implants to totally bypass your failing hands and enter your thoughts directly to your computer!!!


(That could be awful though?!?!) :D :smilewink:

If it was a WORD product I would say yep have the same issue. Type, edit, print preview, looks good..hit the print button and out it comes with items that I corrected on the first go round???

When my posts are missing words and or thoughts (which they are sometimes, of course only after hitting the post button) I blame the fact that I'm so relaxed on here...its kinda of that relaxed comfortable state when your with your buds and somebody burps and nobody goes off the deep end about it.

Now my wife would say she's been fixing my thoughts for a VERY long time...

So if a post is such that I'm lost I'll use one of our clever icons like :say_what: Most times though I just wait for others to respond so that I don't have to admit I was clueless...this is a learned response that could be added to the post about words that women use that we probably don't understand...

Now back to Maynord's question: Keep posting my friend I like your stuff :thumbs:

Maynard, If you have an old Keyboard or you snack while surfing (Like I do) then you may have some keys not making complete contact. If you do take the keyboard out and turn it upside down and shaaakkkkeeeee! it! Then take some can air and blow it down through the keys. If this doesn't help try swapping the keyboard out with a known good one. Yes a keyboard can fail, not often but I have seen them die. If you are using a wireless keyboard try new batteries and making sure that it has a clear signal line to the receiver also if you have maybe moved your computer it may be to far from the keyboard.

Make sure all you connections are good in the back of the computer and that there is no issue with the cables.

Also it seems like you are having a lot of issues with that computer. When was the last time you took it out side and opened it up and cleaned it out? Especially around the heatsink on the processor. It seems to me that you have a problem not long ago that lead me to believe your video card was getting flaky this may also be a result of dirt inside the computer.

Are you absolutely sure it's not a "dongle" problem?:D

I'm another one with the "part of the page missing syndrome". Just about every topic page comes up with blank areas that require me to click the cursor in the blank to fill it in. It's a total PIA! If I wasn't so danged interested in the post I'd just move on... It ONLY happens on GTT so it's not my computer (l think!).
