"eduardo rm",

There aren't many rules that you need to worry about here on the Ranch, but one that we take very seriously regards the use of proper names. Please take a look at the JavaRanch Naming Policy and adjust your display name to match it.

In particular, your display name must be a first and a last name separated by a space character, and must not be obviously fictitious.

There is no limit as such to no of chars in post... but you may get problem when you want to send a really big string from server and you have a very old version of browser .
