It might be the case that it's only me and Kindred that this affects, but I'm sure at least he and I would be happy to see it get put on the 'list of things to fix in the future'.

Must just be my luck

If you have Windows, I use Photoscape for editing pictures. It's free and really easy to use. For joining pictures together, it's literally drag and drop.

May be something I can look into. I am into making things as easy as possible.

Hrm, that really is odd. The only thing I can think of if doing the "img|link img|link img|link" isn't working is maybe the images themselves are just too big, if only by a little bit.

It is a fun program, still learning about it but having fun so far.

(Woohoo! All non-desk stacks are completely clean, and all books are shelved.

So... do the desk stacks, or poke my head in the drawers next?)

No worries, I got my way down pretty good.

Go for the drawers, you might find a long lost favorite toy or possibly a shinny tool.

The desk stacks are going to drive you nuts, do those first, lol.

I don't lose my favorites, but there's a good chance there's a few nice tools in there.... oh man! Some 50cent amazing 50's pinking shears, for example! I had forgotten I had those, they are so much better than the ones my mom uses! (Now to find a project where I need to cut cloth other than trimming pants into shorts... hmm...)

Grab some material and just do it. My 10 year old son did that and had a ball, he is getting pretty good too.

I turned a bunch of fabric samples into a quilt a few years ago and it was neat to do, knowing that I didn't know how to make a blanket, lol.

Here's my start. I got rid of a bunch of shirts that I just don't wear anymore, although I do kind of regret a few of them. But at least I'll always have the design!

My mom has made one for me and each of my siblings... if you've got some time on your hands, just take your materials, cut out squares, lay'em all out til you get to the right size, and start sewing, one by one!

How awesome! One of my former lovers has a quilt like this too but it's all blue jeans... remarkable how soft denim can get after yeeeeeears of wear. Seriously such a comfortable blanket.

Great idea! I have a big bag of VW shirts, sounds like a good use for them.

Nothing I can think of. If possible, please let the appropriate people know that we appreciate the constant efforts to improve the site. It's certainly unlike any other site I've been associated with.

Not really, I do want to say I like the "On site" dot on our avatars.
