Hi All:

Been kind of busy since word has gotten out.  Milled 1500 BF by myself yesterday.  All cedar and pine and all 1 x 8 x 16 or 1 x 12 x 16.  Had to offbear the slabs and lumber by myself too.  That is some hardwork!

Man Howdy! You keep working like that, and you'll be looking for a way to gain a little weight. You'll be down to skin and bones in a little bit.

Hey Bib, his picture was two pages wide without it!  I had to make the picture smaller or get another monitor to see the whole width. I didnt cut the orange thing out though , Joey did.

That brings up a point here for anyone posting pics. PLEASE, make sure the pictures you post are no wider then 400 pixles or it distorts the page. You might not notice if you have a large monitor screen, but the guy with the 13 incher wil, he will have to go in the next room to see it. :D

Jeff,  I was directing my comments towards Joey but sense he's 6-7 and about 400 lbs.,  maybe I should have went easier on him! ;D

Good tip on the width.  I'll try to remember.  ;)

(If I got a BIG  picture,  I put it up on that other Forum.)  :D

 ;D  Okay Okay, I'm obviously not doing something right.  I posted these on a page and they showed to be 250 pixels.  Jeff, what am I doing wrong?  Bibbyman, there are a couple of other photos at www.loweco.com/my_photos.htm  . 8)

Joey, thats because you are using html to declare the picture size, not actually making the picture that size. I cannot allow HTML to be used on the forum due to security risks.

For example this is an html tag for an image declaring it to be a certain size, with a mouse over message (alt text) and showing a picture border
<img src="http://www.loweco.com/images/joeysnekedpics.jpg" width="400" height="250" alt="Joeys Neked Pics" border="2">

These are not options for the forum which uses its own tags to limit problems.

The pictures on the forum appear exactly as the picture is. So, they have to be scaled to the right size with an image program.

Tip for your page. There is no sense using a big picture then tagging it to make it smaller. It takes a lot longer to load and takes up more space. Use an image program and make the picture the size you need it. :)

Well this brings up another forum feature I thought about the other day... I wanted audio, the mental image of a gigantic Texas poleeesman sayin "You in a heap of trouble" was too much. :D

Well,  BigB,  

Some of the lady sawyers were chattin on another Forum and some guy butted in with an idea that Sawmill and Woodlot should do an article about lady sawyers.  But then he went a little further and added a comment about his attraction to women with tight blue jeans and the smell of sawdust in their hair.  I thought it a little funny as I know at least three of the ladies are grandmothers too! (But young grandmothers.) :D

Tom,    I need to be about 6 taller to make my weight come out right too. ;)
8) Joey,  your tractor is the right color too!! 8)    [/size]   [/color]

Yes, as I remember Tom said he is about 6'1"  Although after visiting his house, and using comparison thinking, his doorways must all have 9 foot openings. Also, Mrs.Tom must be nearly 6' 5"  and the cat weighs about 65 lbs.

 :D Well that's what I get for giving someone access to my server.  Geez, image program eh?  Everytime I sit down at my desk it is another piece of software to be bought.  Re: the Massey-Ferguson tractor, it ain't a Case Forklift, but it works.  Regarding the Texas pohleese comment, here's a funny story for you.  Several years ago I was training a rookie on the late night shift.  It was the middle of the summer and very hot.  At 2:30 in the morning, the temps were still over 80 degrees.  We had our windows down on the RPC and were stopped at a large intersection waiting for the light to change.  I was driving and the rookie was sitting shotgun.  We were one of two cars at the intersection.  Got the pic in your mind? Well, I look up in my rear view mirror, and I see this car's headlights approaching me from behind and the it's painfully obvious that the car is swerving back and forth and speeding.  Before I could move my RPC, the car spins out and comes to rest beside us on my side of the car.  The guy driving the car looks over at me and says, "So, you come here often?"  He was in a heap up of trouble. :o :o

Joey, most digital cameras and scanners come with image editing software of somekind. More then likely you already have it. And the optimizing program for reducing and compressing jpegs has a free version that works perfectly fine. In fact thats what I use. Never bought the fulll version yet.

www.xat.com  jpeg or image optimizer. You just have to learn to play with it.

Hmmm. I forgot about the access. Lets see if I can find that info and fix that broken link above... :D
