The forum uses a javascript rich text editing/reply field.  There have been issues with some browsers, eg some versions of IE.


As Rybags mentioned, the top left icon in the display fields disables this JS and dumps you back onto a legacy version that does plaintext.


Assuming this is the issue you're having, anyway.

Can't you just use hyperv for it?

I went the NUC route for family/SOHO builds last year, and while they were spec'd higher than what you're looking at, they were definitely worth it (from a 'look how little space they take up, omg it just works!' POV; there's definitely extra money being spent on that form factor).

The only problem is no optical drive built in, but that's becoming less of an issue as time goes on and there's always a USB option.



But yes - definitely an SSD.  Night.  And.  Day.




What's with that 'built in storage'?  The ones I got weren't populated; I ended up getting m.2 SSDs for them, for windows, and an SSD for backup.

Hey Jeruselem, this doesn't help get our attention, but thanks!

I liked Turnbull talking about how every Australian deserved cheap, plentiful LNG, if we're one of the world's top exporters.

All I could think of was the same speech but given about Uranium.  Hah.  The next thing was questioning why he's trying to bully Vic, NT and other jurisdictions to produce more LNG, when more production = more exports, because that's where the long term contracts and money are.  I'm not really sure who the speech was aimed at.
