hey, thanks for the kind welcome!

Its a 'standard' AGP, Red with white 'fade out' stripes on the side and checks on the roof! Nothing else yet, I did try to put up some pics, but they were too big and I dunno how to resize them!!! DOH! ???  ???

Got it from (whispers) Arnold Clark in Glasgow and got an excellent deal, anything to do with it being the Christmas holiday?

If you open the pictures with paint you can resize them by pressing ctrl + W or clicking image then resize/scew (top left corner)

to be really fancy you can do them all at once in a batch resize..

Also there is a program called ACDsee for photo managment, really good program and simple to use.

Also do a google search for "powertoys" - they are microsoft's own windows extra programs. There should be one called picture resizer.  ;D
