    What is the signifigance of the small symbols at the bottom of the Name Block? In my case there is a symbol of what appears to be a nut (Perhaps a character comment?) I also often see a triangle with an exclamation point in it. Thanx

    The first one is a signal that should be green indicating that you are on-line and the triangle is for someone that wants to report your post as a bad post. Rest your mouse pointer over them and you will see a tip come up with what it is.

    I believe they are forum tools...if you hold your mouse pointer over them, a description will pop up. The triangle/exclamation point is a "bad post" report notification...I'm not sure about the nut

    I thought the "Nut" was solely mine, and self-explanatory..........

    "He went on two legs, wore clothes and was a human being, but nevertheless he was in reality a wolf of the Steppes. He had learned a good deal . . . and was a fairly clever fellow. What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life. The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."
