FTFM
How is that being done? I noticed when copying from Edge and pasting on Gmail the url becomes a neat webpage description, but not when copying from chrome, and never when pasting on DDF. What are the settings for that?

Absolutely incredible story, been meaning to post here for ages:

https://medium.com/s/story/the-long-way-round-the-plane-that-accidentally-circumnavigated-the-world-c04ca734c6bb?

Here's a map I made, which the article is sorely lacking:



I just read the book this article is based on. Absolute waste of time - it adds nothing of interest, and feels like a bad high school project.

The Medium piece is written way better. Just stick to that.

Thanks for sharing, SF, gotta alert the Old Pilot from Plane Tales to this one, it reads like one of his Tales sounds.

You want all the tricks eh?

I just copied and pasted from chrome to be honest. I did have to use the [url][/url] to get it to be one complete link though, thanks to those weird characters in middle there. :)
