Webrunner

I've used the webrunner for the first time. I noticed that sometimes after typing a command and pressing return, I have to click the mouse on the command and press return again. Normal or something wrong with my setup?

Re: Battle of Britain day

And not just the few pilots. Lets not forget the 100's of unsung ground crews and airfield staff who kept the planes in the air. Even the tea ladies did their bit.

Well it does.

But who wants to spend their life looking for missing semi-collons or full stops, just to make a line of code work.

I know is must be a real stupid question, but I've played some Adrift games and they have like a custom message next to the location name. How do you do that?

I think people play IF for a positive pleasant experience. Playing characters which are less than nice goes against this.
