Wow, that is a really bizarre path of thinking, except for the retire by 34 part. And how can there be 4 shades of pure black.

My first concern was that my eyesight is going, then I figured out how to make the chart very very big. They found one of my concerns: what to do about all the remaining VHS tapes, Maurice will help me with that, get it done by Saturday, that is the challenge. zzzzzzz

My curiosity was tweeked. I found that:

1. if you (left) click on the image it opens larger in a new window.
2. if you (right) click in the new window and then,
3. immediately (left) click on the image

it opens a new larger image that can be toggled between large and really large.

Not very intuitive but worth knowing.

I that the method you used?
