lotta living for dummies

Postby sky » Thu Jan 12, 2006 12:15 pm

I thought it might be helpful to start this tutorial thread for Lotta Living users.

Whether you are a new user, or have been posting for years, I think there is plenty we can share here that will make your modern experience on Lotta Living a more enjoyable one. Please give me a chance to post the complete tutorial, and then at the end, you can post questions or share your own techniques with everyone.

Let's begin.

This is the main page of the Lotta Living Message Board!

Note that the horizontal orange lines that highlight the forums: Modern Architecture, Classifieds, The Lotta Living Lounge, and Back Room. Within each forum are several topics. For example, Mondo Lounge is a topic with the Back Room forum. Let's go there next!

Here we are in the Mondo Lounge, my favorite place to play.

Each horizontal yellow line is a thread, and if you click on the subject of the thread it will take you to a page of one or more posts.

Each post is divided into four quadrants.

Wait a minute ...

Something is happening here ...

What's that? OMG (message board shorthand for "Oh My God"￾), can this really be happening?

Someone call 911!

Tell them we're under attack in the Mondo Lounge. Tell them that there's a large metallic sphere that's crash-landed in the Mondo Lounge, and the light reflecting off it is hurting my eyes ...

Oh, the humanity! But is there a human in that sphere? Was it made by human hands?

If only the reflection were not so bright, maybe I could decipher what this is, but it's like looking into the sun ...

Wait a minute ...

Something is emerging from the sphere ...No! THIS CAN'T BE HAPPENING ...

Ladies and gentlemen, please do not adjust your browsers; I am in complete and total control.

Oh? You doubt me. Your skepticism could be very dangerous for you.

So we meet again Modern Srus. I thought I left you in a precarious position in 1964, and that you died a slow painful death.

Money is not enough, Futura Girl. Welcome to the 21st century ... wait a minute ... it's 2006, maybe it's the 20th century. We started with zero. Twenty minus zero is twenty, times one hundred ...

Welcome to the Evil century, Futura Girl. You, of all people, should know that the future is online. I don't want your money; I want your Internets.

As you sit there helpless captive to my aspirations, my plans to overtake the Internets are being carried out by evil henchmen.

Witness this: Mr. Bigglesworth has taken control of your mousing device!

Simultaneously, at the same time, commando penguins are attacking the Lotta Living rounder, er, I mean router.

As you can see, your situation is quite hopeless. Do not resist! Even Austin Powers, wherever he may be, cannot save you now.

GET YOUR FINGERS OFF THAT KEYBOARD, JULIEB!

You have no permissions here. You have been, how should I say ... dis-em-POWER-ed.

Yeah, Baby! It looks like Austin Powers will have to save the world from Dr. Evil one more time.

Hey, Mr. Evil... a Zorastrian named Wilma told me a funny story about you. Should I share it?

Oh? And how are you going to do that. Even the great Austin Powers cannot be in two places at once!

Go for it, LAK; I may need some kind of diversion.

Yes, but I can take a page from Dr. Zeus. When there's too much to do, just call on Thing One and Thing Two. Yeah, Baby.

You have won this round, Austin Powers, but I will return tomorrow. After all, tomorrow is the day after today. Muwa-ha-ha-ha.
