Let's see, let's do an experiment shall we?

here is part of one of my replies

=================================

(^_^) Yes it would, someone suggested a nice simple how-to to fix the mbr
(^_^)from the rescue console. That would be nice. However I think your
(^_^)mining along the vein of writing to the MBR is probably fruitful. So if
(^_^)I could ask a question of the OP, did you have grub write to the MBR
(^_^)since you restored your XP? The system booting directly into XP would
(^_^)seem to indicate that you didn't.
(^_^)
(^_^) Carl - What do you think of the idea of having the XP bootloader
(^_^)handle booting instead of Grub? There are reasonably simple
(^_^)instructions for editing the required files in XP as well as how to get
(^_^)file(s) he will need to copy over to his XP root partition.

shows even in opensource world, only 1/7 people go ask questions on
forum or mailing list. So if a google search doesn't leads to a workable
solution, 6/7 people perhaps give up, only 1/7 will post something like
me. Well perhaps only a very few percent will have a true hacker's
spirit and hack down a solution when questions on forum/lists doesn't
get a solution.


=========================

Same amount of area being taken up. Seen way worst ones about. I don't
know, maybe it is JUST me, but I'm usualy reading what someone says
instead of what's sitting on the left margin! :-D

I'm not trying to flame, but what I think what their point is .. some mail clients, spam filters and MDA's might have issues with the symbols because they mean something. So it might screw up something, so it's better to be plain and unobtrusive when setting the reply separator. :)

Just my 0.02 :)
