What is a Sandbox?

A Sandbox in a forum is a designated place to play. The idea is to give users a chance to test the forum and its tools without cluttering up conversational threads. Other than remembering that everything here is publicly viewable, this is a place to post what you want, how you want, when you want.

I love London. It's my

I love London. It's my favorite city. Lived there in summer 1967, been back three or four times. 

Where are you living? 

Do you have a list of classmates who are there? I know Alf Munkenbeck does. I assume. I stayed with them in a huge flat near (I think) Baker Street. There must be others?

PHE: opening new tabs

I often use the Mac Command+Click to open a Site link in a new tab. I am noticing that the tabs themselves have no headings. I've never noticed that before. Using Safari. Will try another browswer.

new tabs

In Firefox, the tabs are labeled with the forum name.

Unfortunately, my initial joy with firefox has turned to dislike. Email me, Peter, if you want. What browser do you use?

new tabs,, Round 3: Chrome

Tabs are properly labeled here in Chrome, too. Odd about Safari. 

I think I am about to move back to chrome from my very short infatuation with firefox. It has forgotten all my neatly organized tabs twice, lost its Extension for 1Password, and driven me crazy with its Safe Mode that I do not understand. That last one reminds me why I dinged it years ago. I just don't have any idea of what it is for, what it's supposed to do, and how you get out of it. If it's not intuitive, I don't like it!
