    The white hook on red background completely escapes me - clearly I am too inbred All I can think of is the Soviet hammer & sickle, which doesn't make sense in this context.

    Red markings meant "mistake!" when you received your graded essay back...

    That still doesn't help. I can see the white hook, but how does having that hook on a red (faux-leather?) background answer Bob's query as regards red letters on Jacquie's list?

    Confused...

    Referencing the gist of the origin thread, I believe it's about what YOU see in the hook.

    So what your SSS Rorschach reveals is confusion based on literal interpretation of context... very interesting.

    OK - I feel better now: the hook on the red background has nothing to do with Bob's question regarding the entry list Jackie has been maintaining. I something of a literalist and don't spend time looking for "hidden meaning" - I make a terrible conspiracy theorist.

    People are really good at creating structure, patterns, and meaning out of nothing (e.g., clouds that look like elephants, Rorschach ink blots). I try not to do that and instead want the evidence.

    Thanks! As Freud might have said, "Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar". Or perhaps it was Schrodinger's Cat that said that

    And it appears that Jackie did not answer Bob's question.

    Oh, she did.

    Fix the year in this sub-forum's header and I'll give you the answer.

    Because I'm also a literalist. It's just silly that this hasn't been fixed.

    Request sent to the SSS webmaster to make that update. I do not know if any of my login information is still valid, and even if I could login I certainly wouldn't go into the forum and do anything without specific request/permission from the current webmaster.

    And my email to webmaster@sfbaysss.org bounced. Something is not set up correctly, either the SSS Contact page is incorrect or internally the SSS site is not correctly handing incoming email to that address. I've sent a note along to Joe Balderrama to let him know.

    Welcome to our world.

    When this finally gets fixed, all shall be revealed.
