Pardon me. Judo, you are the man! Very professinal...good job. :thumbsup:

Farin, these are the rules for posting images. Hope this helps! :grin:

Posting images:

If you would like to post an image, please post a link to the image, otherwise, follow these guidelines:

1) Images should be hosted with an image hosting service or on your own web site.

This prevents unauthorized use of bandwith from a non-affiliated web site.

2) Do not post more than 40k worth of images in one post.

This is out of courtesy to users with slow internet connections.

3) Do not post images wider than 400 pixels.

Large images can cause the page to stretch beyond the width of the computer screen, making it difficult to read.

4) No animated or picture signatures.
