Spokesmann - should have photos posted by the end of the week - i surf on a dongle and the reception isn't good enough to deal with photos - should get to town by the end of the week

Steve - thanks for the pointer - hopefully over the coming months we'll be getting to know eachother a lot better and when I need help ( and I will need help) I know where to come :-)
Cheers Bill
