Welcome aboard!

I'll think good thoughts about warm weather for you in Amarillo. The talking heads on TV say the central U.S. is in an icebox right now, so I don't blame you for sitting out a few days before taking your Starduster for a spin.

Still, as I tell the curious, my Too has only two levels of discomfort: either too cold or too warm!

Let us know how it goes!

Look at the top of the postings on this forum and you'll see a "stickie" (a post that's permanently kept at the top of the list) regarding posting photos. It has step-by-step directions regarding posting photos.

I'll admit it's not the easiest thing in the world, and that I have to walk myself through it every time I post a photo, but it does work.

Perhaps the most confusing part is getting the photo the correct size, which is done outside this forum using whatever method you may have. If it's a cell phone image, the camera phone probably has a setting to use large or small image sizes. Photoshop--and any other imaging software--will have a sizing option as well. Best thing to do is simply experiment until you get the size you need. There are guidelines in the stickie.

In the end, it's a good skill to have as posting a photo of a technical issue really helps get the concepts across.
