      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

The Egyptian Ministry of Antiquities announced it excavated parts of Abydos, a “lost city” they believe dates back to 5,316 BCE and could have been part of the first capital of one of the earliest Egyptian empires. ..."

The lost text? Again? I'm not going to rewrite everything. Leaving it blank I guess.

 

How about the cliff notes version? :confused:

Does the keyboard connect to your computer?

 

Have you offended the gods of the internut?

3rd part did not post. It was simply a quote, I will try and put it up without the symbols which are normally utilized to indicate it's a quote.

A lost city

 

OK, found the issue, the blank post above this one has those very words in it, along with Quotation marks that were copied and pasted. Removing the " marks and I get text. Now we're getting somewhere. Woot!

and the last part, after lost city, they believe dates back to 5,316 BCE and could have been part of the first capital of one of the earliest Egyptian empires. ...

 

So it was the quotation marks around lost city that were copied and pasted led to the entire post being blank. Despite it appearing perfect in preview.
