Just to the left of the date/time above each post there's a little icon like a bit of paper. Right click on that, copy the URL into your clipboard and use that.

Am I the only one to notice that when you hover your mouse over the [Overused] icon, it says "overused"???

Perhaps someone's trying to tell us something [Biased]

Btw, I rather think it's a shame that we can't make a whole row of [Overused] 's and set them off one after another, so that they do a kind of Mexican wave.

Note to self: get a sig.

Now that I'm almost a Shipmate™ (did that work???) I had better check that I can link to pages:

This should link to the Ship homepage.

Btw, how do you do that clever thing where you link to a specific post on a thread?
