It might be because we're viewing different numbers of posts per page.
It's post #498.

Maybe, but if it is so then it is pathetic!! Hyperlink is just an "address" to the post number so logically it shouldn't be depending on the posts per page.

I just now logged out and clicked on that link of yours as a guest and it pointed to the correct post!!
I think the default no. of posts per page for guests is 5,
I have set it to 50 posts per page.

I vote we make this thread sticky on account of how it's been helpful to those LQ members who aren't native English speakers, and so that it can help future members (seeing as how English is the official language of LQ).

Ah yes, forgot about that one...and I even posted in it!

Well, I guess we should just keep this one alive while we still can, then!

Question

Why not make this thread sticky?

I posted a message which looks like:

###################################################
Quote:
and registration for e-mail addresses require personal info which is also stored in a profile
Personal info for what? For E-mail? Forum database doesn't have this info then. It's an E-mail service which has.
###################################################

So what is correct - "which" or "that"? I can't pick one.

I am not confident I understand what it means. "registration" is singular so if it's the registration that does the requiring it should be "requires" ... what came before the "and"? Presumably something else that requires personal info? This "personal info" is "also stored in a profile". Where else is it stored? In which profile? Presumably the profile associated with registration and <whatever else requires personal info>. In which case it is a specific profile and thus "the profile" not just some profile ...

Commited
is a wrong word? Firefox shows a red line below it! or is it again the American/British standard issue?


SOLVED it myself, the word is committed, actually I put the word in freedictionary.com, it didn't show any errors, so I got confused!

Firefox underlines 'virtualization' in red. Hmm, Google doesn't seem to think it's wrong. Maybe I should just add it to the dictionary.

Firefox didn't have another spelling for it, perhaps because it is a technical word

Virtualisation. Underlines that spelling, too.
