I hope it doesn't come to Amazon. We'll have to stop complaining about them if you're working there.

The office is still officially closed. Those working are working from home still. So over three floors it was me, two other people, and the person managing the office clearout/tech return, etc.

No, mead not ready yet.

Seriously though, I hope Wilkins Micawber proves right for once and that "Good comes from Bad" as we say back home.

Good point well made.

I forget how late it actually is in summer because its still light out at 9pm or how early it is in the morning because the sun comes up at 5:15am.

There's a silly notion that failure's not an option at NASA. Failure is an option here. If things are not failing, you are not innovating enough.
P.s could someone tell me how to post without the photos included in the quote.
​​​​​​​I have been accused of cocking up quotes before( if you do not know you just do not know), this little bit of random is by me ECK

Thanks ECK.

To get the photos out of the post you are replying to, start to reply in the normal way using the quote button. Then in the reply box where you are typing you will be able to scroll up into the text of the person you are replying to and use that new mouse of yours to select and the delete or "cut" the photos.

Big pics are annoying aren’t they? When uploading you should be able to choose the size...small/medium/original...I can using my iPad. To delete pics when quoting...tap on the pic and it should either turn blue or a thin blue line will appear at the side of the pic. Now hit the delete button and the pic should disappear.

If it doesn’t work...open a new thread in the Site Feedback forum.

Interesting. I am never given a size option when uploading, it just uploads and never been a choice of small/med/large.

Most times I end up dragging something into my own graphics editor and reducing the image size before posting......

Deleting previously posted images in quoted threads is easy, as described, just quote, click on the image within the quoted text and hit delete.

Here is Siouxie's secret.

When you have inserted the image in your post, click on it. Then click 'Source' which then gives you the text for the image. As part of that you will see the size of the image...it appears like 839x650.

Just overtype the numbers and then post. You can preview it with the new size. Halving is easy enough if you want to keep it in ratio. It needn't be exact. You may be able to look at the numbers and instantly say I can take a third of each one.
