Firstly - to all members a very Happy New Year

Now a moderators timely reminder as it is the beginning of a year.

Can all members please remember that a reference to an eBay auction can be seen for a maximum of 90 days - after which all the detail is lost.
*Existing members moan - oh not again

This item is a great example - a very funny "idiot" on eBay trying to sell a "fly speck", but anybody reading about it in 3 months time will not be able to view the detail so will have no idea to what it is referring.

If you have Windows 7 (or above) as most do these days - this is an easy problem to fix. Simply engage the snipping tool - upload the result to Photobucket (see FAQs) then copy/paste the IMG URL into the forum post.

As I have done on the next post to make this one clearer.

It's OK Mike - you are by no means alone - it happens quite often, mostly I don't have the time to correct the problem so the post usually gets lost in the mist of time which is a shame.
