CMBO/CMBB Anthology of useful posts!

Recommended Posts


Unfortunately, forum maintenance has resulted in the links to these old threads no longer working. Well, it was good while it lasted.

Since I had made that collection in mid 2001 after having purchased CMBO, perhaps it is time for a new anthology of wisdom which includes CMBO/CMBB/CMAK. Just a thought. smile.gif

Good hunting, all!

So, how do I paste in a collection of links such that they are clickable, since HTML is not enabled?



hmmmmmmm...that's a very good question. you could hit reply to my corrected post and get rid of the numbers, but that's so annoying even i didn't want to do it smile.gif...

or just hit reply and copy my text then hit edit on your original post and paste it in, so the first post has the semi-legible version.

btw, nice list!
