    Yes, that is what I was suspecting. That mainframe time is a bit before my time though... The most archaic I have worked with, were non-networked PCs without hard disk, that needed to be booted from 5 1/4 inch floppy disks to start up DOS... That was in 1990 when I started my university studies. They were replaced by hard disk based 286's pretty soon afterwards though...

    Don't paste into Word (why use a wordprocessor to handle images?), paste into Paint, and save as JPEG.
    Then you can upload the image to the thread itself.

    What he said.

    When you are working in Paint, I find that it helps if, before you paste in the image, you set "Page Setup" (under the File menu) to landscape orientation.

    No worries, Sean and thanks. Like I said these are very minor bugs and I can live with them if I need to.

    Yes, good advice. However, the reason I mentioned Word, is that not all computer novices are actually aware that there is a small program called "Paint" somewhere down the Start menu of Windows that can do basic image manipulation. Nor may all beginning APUG users be aware that there is an "attachment" option in the forums...

    Word and straight e-mail will be familiar to anyone using a Windows based computer though...

    Actually, there may be another good reason to paste images in Word or OpenOffice's Writer application (OpenOffice's equivalent of Word). Writer is capable to read Word documents, and can export to PDF, contrary to Microsoft Word.

    I wasn't aware of this, but since I installed OpenOffice next to Microsoft Office, and discovered this facility, I regularily use it. Very handy for creating PDFs to share here on APUG or on a personal website. You can even set a security password, to disallow editing, copying and/or printing of the PDF's content.

    For word processing, I use WordPerfect. I regularly use its export to PDF function.

    It is quite good for assembling jpegs and text on a page, before the PDF export.

    Sean,

    I reported this before somewhere, but APUG can be very slow. Still is the case.
    Sometimes, nothing happens when you click on a link that should select a thread or post and open it in the browser. Sometimes, stopping he procedure and trying again will help. Sometimes not even that, and it's "come back and try again some time later" time.

    I suspected that it had to do with the database, not being able to 'serve' a thread while someone is posting, or something of the sort.
    Today (it happens very regularly) i got confirmation of that for the first time in the form and shape of a "Database error" page that was served instead of the thread i wanted to see, that (by the way) also mentioned the "technical staff" is alerted.
