Carol Teal level-classic 3/2/2008 5:08:16 AM

Lovely colors and effects Peaches! I am sure you will be glad when the snow is gone and spring has sprung!! When you mentioned server problems, it reminded me that before our company got here, I was having problems with my broadband and it took forever (like dial-up) for the photos to load on BP. The cable company came out Friday and fixed the problem. That is another reason I am so far behind! #5580938

Nancy (Peaches) Harker level-classic 3/2/2008 4:13:59 PM

Thanks very much Carol, I am always having server problems here, Dial up sucks LOL!
We are getting a new provider next month (March) as TDS will not be doing dial up anymore.
I sure hope it is better.
Have a super night!!! #5583334

Tocky Bialobrzeski level-classic 3/6/2008 4:06:53 AM

Hello Peaches, I am here on the recommendation of Jeana, and she is right, your discussion threads are even longer than hers !!
This photo has eliminated all doubt for me.... I MUST make the acquaintance of the fractalious filter.
Beautiful. #5600134

Nancy (Peaches) Harker level-classic 3/6/2008 10:40:03 PM

Well Hello Tocky, it is so very nice to meet you!!!
The frac filter can be a trick, not for every photo.
I don't use it a lot. Maybe if I had the full version I would.
I will have to thank Jeana for sending you my way! She is a sweetheart for sure!!!
Thanks so very much for stopping in and commenting, it is sp appriciated.
Welcome to BP and do have fun!!!
Have a super day!!!
