    Of course! :o)  My friend, if I had control of it, it would all be 
there - everything. But I don't have control, even though I'm the owner (no, 
we're the owner). This thing is out of my league in the coding department at 
the moment. BUT, that's not to say that I can't learn. ;) I've seen what it 
looks like on the screen, and I think I can handle it. (We'll see!)  ;)

    This has more or less been put to me in email too, and all I can say is 
that Colin is thinking about it. He is aware of this problem, but finds it 
an 'interesting' problem. His initial response was "Let's run it as it is 
for 6 months first."  -  "Let's see what happens." I kind of agree with this 
because for a start, there won't be many animations, and there won't be many 
stills, (not like the heyday of the IRTC - (I think I've seen 80+ images in 
one round), but, with the help of you guys, this just might change.

       I'll keep you (all) updated where and when  I can.

    (Don't go just yet Markus, see below...)

     Man, those are good. That's all I can say.    :oO
