An intelligent person might realize that I am not continuously on-line.
I do sleep.

The meaning of 'misplaced modifier' should be clear in any language.
It certainly applies in French (my second language) as well as English.

An adjective or adverb is not placed in the correct position within the sentence.

[QUOTE=LaurV;412724]I bet he would reply to that immediately. :razz:[/QUOTE]

Thanks for the suggestion. :smile:

I very much appreciate Mr. Silverman's input.

It might be nice if he learnt how to play well with others.

To each their own, of course.

(My girlfriend bought me a shirt that reads "Warning: Doesn't play well with others." I regularly wear it.)

At least you play well with her. I'm sure you both appreciate it.

Yeah. It's cool. She also bought me a shirt which says "There's no place like 127.0.0.1".

Almost nobody gets the joke.

Ha! That is brilliant!
Note to self: I must order a shirt to say the first text on front and the second one on back. Or viceversa. Or better order two shirts?

Were I to get such a shirt, I would be sure it's the updated (and much simpler) version: "There's no place like ::1."
