Money talks, but that £500 hardly even paused to say goodbye.  But I kept the pic as an inspirational scrensaver ;-)

I dunno, but she runs Canada too. ;-)

Do you still have that e-mail I sent you about PHPbb?  I looked but couldn't find it.

You are a showoff Tim. Gyppo, be sure you check your e-mail for the long subject line with MWC and Tim and PS. Photos

I'm a bit slow to reach this thread, but it is a great idea. I use WordPerfect rather than MS Word. When someone asks mss formatting questions and they (like most people) use MS Word, I can't tell them exactly where to find the functions I mention.

One of the biggest problems is when people use their software like a typewriter. I knew there had to be a page break function, but didn't know what it was. So, now I know and can pass that on when I'm helping someone format their ms.

Thanks a million!

I'm not a showoff, Gyppo is a showoff.  He even writes about it

All of my worthy pictures are too big and I can't be bothered to resize them right now. It does seem too easy now that I see the big Additional Options tag. ::)

Do you still have that e-mail I sent you about PHPbb?

So I'm old and forgetful and can't figure out if this is to me or not and what it means???

Patti Has Perfect and then it dengenerates into a slang word for a woman's secondary sexual characteristic that is just enough to make me wonder what in Loki's name is going on here.

But I don't keep much in the way of old email, so I probably don't have whatever this is if you are even talking to me. If you weren't talking to me then it is a pretty safe bet I don't have it no matter what.

This getting old and senile is tough.

Patti, you clearly have me confused but I laughed nonetheless at your post to Tim. ;)

....And Tim, this was just wrong! :P

There went ten seconds of my life I'll never get back.  ;D Ah, but paybacks loom in the future for you. ;)

Help?  Sorry, my 'SuperQuill' flying suit has been lost at the drycleaners.  The man behind the counter - I think it may have been Citabria in disguise - offered me a sequinned basque, fishnet stockings, and a moleskin suspender belt with grinning skull clips.  I turned it down.  He assure me that he 'often flew' in those clothes.  I said I didn't doubt it, but it just wasn't me.  So, you're on your own this time, Tim.
[1]  Serves you right for provoking Debs.

[1]  Any resemblance to the comedy sketch where the cleaners lose Supermans suit and offer him a tight pair of Toreador pants and a frilled shirt is both entirely deliberate and fully acknowledged (or would be if I could remember the name of the comedian wot dun it)  Bob Newhart perhaps?  A good idea is always worth re-working when an opportunity arises..

I didn't provoke anyone.  Heck, she couldn't even read the font. :P
