I am beginning to seriously dislike my computer. Yesterday while looking through the postings I noticed all the written part is made up of wierd letters and symbols like my computer is possessed. I even made a comment on a guys piece thinking that he had written it that way intentially. It’s only the written part of project postings, everything else seems fine. Any ideas? Oh, and I apologize to Alejandro for the “huh” post!

This post appears to be OK.

Is it only when you read another post? Does it do it if you open “wordpad” or “notebook” and write something (assuming Microsoft here)?
