before jumping in the deep end ;-)

For the last week or so I have been offline with PC problems, and just looking in here for a couple of minutes a day, and not signing in, on D's PC. It's been quite interesting just to watch without being able to respond immediately, often the thread has been 'old' and whatever response I would have made, given by someone else.

I'd recommend it to anyone who has a 'quick trigger finger' ;-) if you have to actually sign in to comment it makes you pause, either to come to the conclusion it's all been said, or at least to 'collect your thoughts' before responding :-D

Good point Rose. I am a very slow typist, so by the time I have typed a response, previewed and thought about it I often just delete lol

Just wish there weren't so many personal 'digs' at people :-( :-\
