Loftus is a frequent reporter on Batchelor's radio show. Because of his earlier involvement in the Nazi apprehension/prosecution division of Justice, he is very famiiar with both the history of the US post war intelligence efforts, who did what to whom, and how the current struggle with Islamofascism is the last act of WW2.

I hope Corlyss has long hair and you have a big club. Ugh, ugh.

There's nothing remarkable about it. All one has to do is hit the right keys at the right time and the instrument plays itself.

There's nothing to it, Ralph, but you have to have an internet source for the pics. Here's how you do it:

1. Find the internet source for the pic. Mine came from Amazon.
2. Place your cursor over the pic and left click to make sure the cursor's actually on the picture.
3. Right click to bring up the pop-up menu which will have "properties" at the bottom.
4. Click on "properties."
5. Copy the entire http:// internet address for the pic (because there has to be one or it can't be posted in the first place)
6. Bring up your CMG 'posting' screen.
7. Paste the internet address of the pic where you want it in your post.
8. Highlight the address with your mouse.
9. Go to the row of buttons underneath the 'Subject' window. Second from the right is Img. Click on that. That operation should cause the internet address to be bracketed with the following software command: . No spaces between the address and the brackets or it won't take.
10. When you have finished writing your post, click the 'submit' button, and watch magic happen before your very eyes.

You can practice the instructions with the 'preview' button. Print out these instructions and work on it. It's not hard. A man who can navigate the law can post internet pics as easily as falling off a log. If you are trying to post your own pics that are not on an internet site already, it gets more complicated.

There's something missing from the end of the address. There should be a .gif or .jpg or the like.

The .jpg is missing. See?

Image

You have to make sure the cursor is over the pic when you bring up the address.

I can't get the second address to work either. There must be something in the alphabet soup that prevents others from using the image. Sometimes that happens. There must be other pics of his Dittersdorfship on the net.

BTW, now that you see Mark has pics in his signature, are you going to put your Dittersdorf prize in your signature?

Gratulatio, Ralph!

Now all there is left for you to learn is to be able to do this.

1. You need two tags: an opening tag and a closing tag ; notice the addition of a "/" in the closing tag.

2. To begin, type as follows: [ url][/url]

3. Add "=" to the opening tag. [url=][/url]

4. Insert the actual url (web address) of the page you want to link to in the opening tag.

[ url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carl_Ditte ... ittersdorf][/url]

5. To get this, insert the word "this" between the two tags.

[ url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carl_Ditte ... ittersdorf]this[/url]

6. Finally, add water, and you're done!

Let me add to Gary's very fine instructions that he put spaces between the address and the bracketed software commands so it would show up as print rather than an actual software command.

Don't you do it when you are ready to post your link. Spaces will cause execution of the software command to fail and all you will get is the internet address.
