Amen, Steve!
Now that I am a "full-time" E-Bayer, I have found that a sale can easily
be lost by having large and/or hi-res pix in the ads. Also, when E-mailing
to some of the el-cheapo providers, you will exceed the capacity of the
mail box on the other end causing a rejection letter back to you complete
with the attachments!

I am very dissipointed with my Olympus D-400 Zoom. You have to edit
forever to gey even a mediocre result. Years ago when I bought it, the
wait-list for a Sony was 6-months+. That should have told me something.

To all ampers....sorry for the non-amp bandwidth, but pictures are worth
a thousand words when trying to show fellow builders what you have built,
and as a sales tool. Some day the reflectors will allow them when we all
get high-speed wireless gear.
