Sorry about the brain storm. I knew as soon as I'd sent it that it was 
stupid. I did send my reply with the results of what you had sked me in it 
on the Saturday (accoding to my e-mail program and did get it back into my 
inbox as you would expect and that was the last I heard of it till I posted 
without checking if it had really got to the list). I also appear to not be 
getting some of my mail (missing posts) or very late.

Sorry again.

Do you want me to start again? Maybe even re-install.(I'm getting quite 
good at that). Just to have a clean start with no stupid mistakes messing 
up the picture.
