Out of the Blue

How can this be? Today is Wilford Brimley's birthday, and the actor turns 77. If you asked me to guess, I would have said he was almost that old in The Thing, which came out in 1982.

In this post I used the url tags on "available here" and posted just fine. I then needed to edit my post. Without modifying the url tags or the url itself I then submitted my edit, but this time the url was deemed too long. I rectified the situation by putting a space between the opening url tag and the 'a' in "available here" and then I was able to submit. The odd part of course was that the error only showed up upon trying to edit my post.
Thanks for elaborating, there still was an inconsistency between the post and edit code. Hopefully solved now.

Sorry I'm having a hard time letting this go...
so please don't expect me to know everything else that goes on in the forums.
Would it not occur to you to check my post history if I thanked you for the fix and then reported "But I just experienced [...]" ? Surely it must have happened inbetween your fix and recently enough to use the word "just"
You have no idea how much I have on my plate, so I'll forgive you, but... no, even if it occurred to me it's not specific enough.

There are reasons why I'm no longer proofreading the site, nor developing new/updated features, or am barely skimming just the OotB/ItB threads. So unless someone provides a specific and detailed report about some problem here, I have no trouble "letting it go".
