    Nice SBS Richard

    Watch out, its addictive!

    A tip with loading pictures is to use a photo hosting site like photobucket and then you can have full size in the threads. There is a tutorial that flyguide.co.za (mario) did, but I couldn't find it. Maybe some of the other forumers can help?

    Regards
