    Isn't it odd how they think all the complaining and nagging is going to make you WANT to spend more time with them?

    Ladies...treat us well enough that we want to spend time with you, rather than complaining, which just drives men farther away!!!

    unforchenetly no not realy, i get a few hrs here and there then have to get up take more pain pills and try again. this goes on 24/7/365 makes getting any thing done in my shop a real pain. any time i spend up and about i spend 2X that making up for it laying down although rarely sleeping.
    my life sucks, but the kids are great and the wife aint too bad eather so i hang in there.

    if you have windows XP there is a picture resizer oferd free from microsoft that alows you to reduce the pixels without distorting the image. leaves you with a good size pic without too high of a pixel count.
    most of the sited only alow 100 to 150 kbts for each pic uploaded and most of the newer digital cameras take a pic in the MB's insted of KB's best to start off with your camera on its lowest resilutoin, witch in most cases is still higher then your computer screen can even show any way. so unless you expect to have the pic's printed in 8"X10" size the lowest setting is great. and even then you still need to downsize then a bit to load. the resizer works great for that. mine on its lowest setting still produces pic's from 160-250+ depending on the background (grass is a big pixel count ) thats when the resizer comes in handy.
    this pic started out at over 150 and with the med. setting on the resizer it ended up like this at 49.8 kb's, reduced again to the small setting its 36.2 kb's and if you realy want to reduce it you can go to palm pocket sized. at 10.9 kb's and all still verry clear easy to see details.
    some resizers bler out the image when reducing it, not a good choice as they are just degrading the image insted of resizing it.
    here is a link to the microsoft page to get the resizer;

    hope that helps.

    pics?

    I've got a Samsung digital and it came with the software for photo impression 4. I don't know if that helps you any, and the old lady gets to stay inside doing whatever it is that she does while i'm outside playing. She doesn't come outside much while I'm working, she waits until I'm done then all she wants to know is where is the money I got for it. Typical woman I guess.

    how much?

    I got the original 50 from the home owner and 400 from the sale. I get the lighting kit for about 12.00, everything else I had laying around. People always ask me why I keep all the "scrap metal" laying around, I tell them there is no such thing as scrap. I just got lucky turning these pieces of crap into something so quick, It doesn't always work this way.

    got another one for you guys

    The neighbor across the street moves out and leaves an old jon boat trailer frame sitting in the yard, the home owner comes to me and asks if I would come over and cut it up for him. He hands me a 50 dollar bill, says thanks and leaves. I go over and look at it and decide it is easier to drag it to my house than to drag torches there. I had some old spindles and hubs and some box tubing, so I made an axle to set under it to move it. after getting it home I looked it over and said what the heck, I'm slap something together with. I found a set of springs I could use and then I took off all the wood runners that hold the boat, made some side rails for it and some old plywood for a deck. I took a couple of pieces of 1/2" round bar and rolled them for fender edges and used some old 16 ga. sheet steel to form the fenders.
    I spent about 6-7 hours on this project. Just like the Toyota truck, my only out of pocket expense was for the lights. I had pipe for the top rails left over from another job, and the plywood was left over from the hurricanes a few years ago. I put the thing by the street and it was gone in less than twenty minutes. Now unfortunatly this story does not end like the other one as now the old lady is peeded off cause she didn't get no money this time.
