What do the colors of the little index cards to the left of the forum message stand for? Some gray, some orange, etc.? :blink:

Hi Tru,

That's a good question. At the bottom of the Forum pages, there is this explanation for the little folders that are at the left of the messages on the main forum page:

Posted Image New Replies
Posted Image No New Replies
Posted Image Hot Topic (New)

(etc.)

Mary, I know what you mean -- I thought they were briefcases! So when I read Tru's message, I was thinking WHAT index cards? When I figured out what she meant, I thought, well, she just used the wrong word for a briefcase.

Only then did I realize that briefcases don't have handles on the far left side. :blink:

Now that you mention it, I think they do look like index cards, but the scale isn't right for that, either. In training, I have called them briefcases or suitcases - can't remember which. In my mind I guess they were carrying new information. :lol:

When I was training a group of secretaries to use computers for the first time, they kept talking about the 'save' icon being the little television. It was supposed to look like a floppy disk. Now we really don't have much use for floppy disks, but the icon is still there. I smile when I see it and always think of it as the little television now.

I just looked at the images which are all labelled f_something. I am guessing now that the f stands for folder.
Warm wishes,
Jefa

When I worked as a secretary many years ago, this older woman came to my cubicle extremely flustered under the workload she had on her desk. She furiously kept pointing to a shelf above my cubie trying to search for the word of what she was asking for. I kept saying what is it Jean? Totally flustered, she pointed one last time to the shelf, aiming at the envelopes and said "for goodness sake Linda, give me an umbrella". B)

Speaking of Jean, I just needed to share this. Her husband called her at work (as if she's not frustrated enough) to tell her he gave the dog the new puppy treats and he want wild for them. He said that he was surprised that they're only four to a box, but he felt they were quite large and split them in half. She waited a minute, confused by what he was talking about, then asked "what treats". He said the new ones "Pup Tarts". She let out quite a few non printable words and then notified him that they were "Pop Tarts".

Cute stories Linda.
Jefa, I would think they are folders. The ones that a person puts into a file cabinet. They are usually vanilla or cream in color. I have always thought they were for putting into a file cabinet by topic. Someone isn't storring all this important stuff away somewhere. All this typing and interacting and it isn't stored somewhere. Boo Hoo!
Strength and Warmth,
Sheryl
