MS Word/LiveJournal/Internet [Apr. 7th, 2005|06:36 pm]
[emotional state |sillysilly]

When writing papers for class, I type <i> thing to be itallicized </i> instead of [ctrl+i]thing to be itallicized[ctrl+i], and then wonder why the html isn't rendering correctly in a print preview.

*giggle* I do that all the time.

Or when I was on forums a lot, I'd mix up [] and <>

I have a few posts about things like this.
I also have a tendency to want to hit ctrl+S when writing by hand, usually during exams not taking notes.

This clearly means you should stop writing papers in Word - really, what's the point?

Not that I encourage HTML as a document format, but there's always LaTeX...

In work emails, I have to remind myself not to type things like *this* to indicate emphasis and "lol" and "snark".

When she was in college, surrealestate once was wondering what day of the week a certain date was, and she was in class taking notes on paper, so she wrote "cal" on her notes, then stared at the paper and wondered why it didn't work.
