For example, when sending a new text message, you see the same person listed several times - one for Google, one for Facebook, one for Skype etc. This also fixes the problem of not showing the correct images for contacts (or not having an image at all).

There are the sick, the coughing, sniffing, sneezing, sleeping masses. Whistles, snores, grunts, belches and farts punctuate the rumble of the train. If you are lucky enough to sit next to a toilet you get the odd authentic bed-pan smell. Then there are those that are like the visitors, sitting next to the sickly - those that read, talk, play with their phones, laptops, look out of the window in a bored fashion, or generally entertain themselves. They have the air of peole who would rather be somewhere else, but stoically are resigned to their fates.MiscASP / VB Script Smart-tag stripperHits 38380 | Last Modified 2007-07-05 Often, input comes from MS Word etc, which tends to insert a great deal of 'smart tags'. Combine this with the problems of Euro characters, copyright, accented letters etc, and you shortly have a database full of text that displays as square boxes once it has been through your ancient Cold Fusion code.

It has long, bark covered branches and palm-sized hairy green leaves. Its flower is a huge, impressive white trumpet that seems to involve a great deal of effort on the plant's part to grow. It is, in short, a beautiful plant. We grew it in our home along with various other odd plants but it had a special place in our hearts. If I tell you that its Latin name is datura stramonium then some of you may understand why. Commonly known as Datura, the plant can produce some of the most psychoactive effects known to man. Some of the other names the plant goes by are: Mad apple, apple of Peru, devil's apple, devil's trumpet, devil's weed, stink weed, jimson weed, jamestown-weed, malpitte, moonflower and witch's thimble.
