Hi Paul,

Maybe it is my PC, but all I can see is a grey screen with 'a plugin is needed to dispaly this content'. I first noticed this when CMDPLR replied to my posting (with a youtube link), after he/she explained the use of 'that' button.

Ho hum, I think I'll just keep posting a link instead... ;)

Cheers, Gary.

Hi Gary

You will need the flash player plugin, I am working on switching over to a HTML 5 code to dispense with the requirement for flash but it will be a while

I am not a complete idiot some parts are missing
