    As far as I can tell, none of the diagrams on that page will be
    helpful in replacing the part that Arklin is replacing. The schematic
    he wants (and I want) shows how the bayonet mount ring piece is
    attached/removed/added to the lens. Strangely, for a search on Nikon
    lens parts, many of the diagrams are for Olympus lenses. There may be
    a reason for that that I don't know. It's not my bag.

    While we are on the subject of newsgroup postings, how about you -
    Eric - adding a sig line delimiter so your "Regards, Eric Stevens" is
    stripped when replying. What is it? Two dashes followed by a white
    space character on a single line?

    You snipped my addition about the need for a market for the version.
    If there's a market for the product, that solves the economic reason.

    if it's trickle charging, it's not doing a 'full charge cycle'. a lot
    of chargers drop to trickle charge when the battery is fully charged
    (which requires sensing its charge) to maintain a full charge.

    that may be what confused dpreview in thinking it's doing a full cycle
    when it was just doing a trickle charge.

    it definitely is not doing a full charge cycle. there is no question
    about it.

    Well let's try another test:

    TEST 1

    Here is a long unwrapped Google URL with white space inserted just
    below:

    https://www.google.co.nz/#hl=en&newwindow=
    1&safe=off&output=search&sclient=psy-ab&q=nikon+d5000+parts+list&oq=parts+Nikon+D5000&gs_l=hp.1.2.0i30j0i5i30j0i8i30l2.28963.37865.0.45268.17.16.0.1.1.0.284.3566.2-16.16.0...0.0...1c.Vo8WKm-XFp0&pbx=1&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.r_qf.,cf.osb&fp=79ff5e69f7a9d4b0&biw=1428&bih=952

    Interesting. Agent breaks it, sends the tail to a new line but doesn't
    wrap it! Agent clearly distinguishes the tail from ordinary text which
    it would wrap. But neither does it recognise the tail as any kind of
    URL.

    Clicking on the still active front end of the original URL I end up at
    the Google initial search page. This page still has a long URL but the
    tail is quite different from the original. The severed tail above is
    unclickable.

    TEST 2

    Here it is, broken with white space at the same place again, but with
    <>.

    <https://www.google.co.nz/#hl=en&newwindow=
    1&safe=off&output=search&sclient=psy-ab&q=nikon+d5000+parts+list&oq=parts+Nikon+D5000&gs_l=hp.1.2.0i30j0i5i30j0i8i30l2.28963.37865.0.45268.17.16.0.1.1.0.284.3566.2-16.16.0...0.0...1c.Vo8WKm-XFp0&pbx=1&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.r_qf.,cf.osb&fp=79ff5e69f7a9d4b0&biw=1428&bih=952>

    The severed tail is not recognised (by colour and underlining) as a
    URL, but by clicking on it I find the entire original URL is
    recognised and takes me to the correct Google search page.

    TEST 3

    Once more, again with <> but this time with two breaks with white
    space:

    <https://www.google.co.nz/#hl=en&newwindow=
    1&safe=off&output=search&sclient=psy-ab&q=nikon+d5000+parts+list&oq=parts+Nikon+D5000&gs_l=
    hp.1.2.0i30j0i5i30j0i8i30l2.28963.37865.0.45268.17.16.0.1.1.0.284.3566.2-16.16.0...0.0...1c.Vo8WKm-XFp0&pbx=1&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.r_qf.,cf.osb&fp=79ff5e69f7a9d4b0&biw=1428&bih=952>

    Again, the severed tail is not recognised (by colour and underlining)
    as a URL, but by clicking on it I find the entire original URL is
    recognised and takes me to the correct Google search page.

    CONCLUSIONS

    1. If a URL is broken by white space Agent will not identify the
    severed tail as part of a URL by either colour or underlining.

    2. If a URL is broken by white space Agent will not identify the
    severed tail as part of a URL by either colour or underlining but it
    will continue to recognise the URL in its entirety as long as it is
    enclosed in "<" and ">".

    NOSPAM'S EXAMPLES

    Copying the original text etc:
    -----------------------------------
    although these urls are shorter than the usual line length, it makes
    the point:

    <http://www.google.com/
    maps/>

    and

    http://www.google.com/
    maps
    -----------------------------------

    In neither case is the full original URL identified: only the
    http://www.google.com . Nospam clearly different didn't use just white
    space to break the URLs and whatever he did use is not recognised as
    white space by Agent.

    What is convention for the end of a line? Is it just <CR> or is it
    <CR><LF>?



    Anyway, let's see what I get back when I post all this.

    Agent used to do that but for some reason it has recently stopped
    doing it. I must contact agent to see why.

    The behaviour on receipt is the same.
    The behaviour on receipt has changed. The severed tail is not
    recognised and its response to clicking is the same as in Test 1.
    Again, the behaviour on receipt has changed. The severed tail is not
    recognised and its response to clicking is the same as in Test 1.
    3. Agent treats received URL strings differently from those that have
    been generated with the current body of text.

    Now, work on that delimiter that strips your sig lines.

    I use Agent. I participate in other newsgroups where there are many
    Agent users. Using a sig line that is stripped doesn't seem to be a
    problem if you include the necessary bits. It's been so long since I
    set mine up that I don't remember...but I think you just add two
    dashes and a white space.

    I'm trying. Didn't you notice?

    You may have snipped it.

    Damn!
    With Unison and MT-NW I just go to my preferences and add the sig of
    choice. The software automatically adds the sig delimiter and below
    that the selected sig.

    Savageduck Guest

    So far, no sig delimiter that I can see at work.

    Savageduck Guest

    You are not using it correctly.
    A single dash is not a sig delimiter.
    What you need is "-- " + sig, not "-".
     
    Savageduck, Jul 14, 2012

    Eric Stevens Guest

    I've tried adding that to the signature file. Let's see if it works.

    tony cooper Guest

    No, I haven't snipped anything. As above is as it appears.
    Unsnipped, unsullied, and unwanted.
     
    tony cooper, Jul 14, 2012
  18. Arklin K.

    tony cooper Guest

    Yes, this time it worked.

    And, thank you for that. I regard broken URLs to be a very minor
    problem. If I'm going to open one, it's easy enough to do.

    More bothersome to me are sigs without delimiters and people who don't
    set a line length around 72 and force me to scroll when reading their
    message. Oh, and people who don't use necessary capitalization when
    telling others that they are wrong about everything.
