 Hi there, Mert,

Welcome to Mad Modders, I don't think you'll regret joining, I haven't!   :mmr: 

Don't ever say 'just' and ignore anyone else who says it to you!   :thumbup:   :thumbup:   :thumbup: 

I suggest that you read the thread under 'Gallery' about resizing and linking to photos.   :worthless:  but it can be a bit laborious scrolling sideways and up & down when folks put up photos that are too big.  FastStone resizer is free, very easy to use and enables you to add captions etc. to your pix.

Your profile is a bit sparse - where in the world are you? 
Best regards,

Pete W.

If you can keep your head when all about you are losing theirs, you haven't seen the latest design change-note!

Welcome, Obiwan Mert. You guys are in for a treat! I have followed Merts' musings for years on the yahoo 7x groups. I wish he'd adopt this 65 yr old kid and take me under his wing. He has taught this gasshopper much! By the way, Mert, I'm not far from you at the moment. I'm visiting family in Central New York. Again, welcome.

Hi Mert,
fondly remember your involvement in the 7 x groups from ages ago.  I still have and use my old 7 x 10 HF lathe, and despite having bought replacement boards and diodes (which I've never had to use), the thing hasn't failed (apart from the occasional fuse) or let me down now for nearly 20 years!
