i should be use 2 ur compaliny yet informative posts by now but...
looking back i was surprised at how much i had posted yesterday
- for information purposes
so there could be less judgement of others going on perhaps -
i sat at my computer yesterday fr: 10am to 3am
that is 17 hours
processing scanned in graphx
for 3 edit projects
which can be tediously boring
posting on fw was just a sort of break fr: the drudgery
and i think i spent my time very well and got a ton of work done so...

"people are not editing themselves" that's just funny fred
other than that as always thanks for the information
it is much appreciated
