    I still get the first wallpaper from the changeover. What is the secret trick to changing things again?

    Sorry Toni, I'm afraid I was a bit confused by your question. Could you elaborate?

    Oh Eileen, I thought you meant that you saw the chaffinch/crocus/frog/tulip wallpaper and that it wasn't to your liking. Did you originally mean that you could see no wallpaper at all? :eek:

    That's right Frank nothing at all for a while there but I REALLY DO like the chaffinch, tulip, frogs and crocus one if only it would stay around for longer.

    I think I will make this one the official 2006 Spring wallpaper. What do you guys think?

    It was a bit puzzling alright last night when I read your first post Eileen. I thought to myself "Hmmm has Eileen really got an adversion to cute chaffinches and cheeky frogs. Or maybe the sight of too many tulips and crocuses has rendered her allergic to same?".

    Now I just realise that you had an adversion to blank wallpaper :D

    Frank,
    When I read the discussion between you and Eileen about the new wallpaper I couldn't see it on my screen. I logged off and back on and the still had the other wall paper. That's why I asked about the secret trick to make it appear, I had forgotten it was CTRL+F5.
    Since I did that the new design is there.
    I was just wondering if you knew why it hadn't shown up on screen when I logged in the first or even the second time.

    Thanks for the elaboration Toni. Well it is definitely nothing to do with whether you are logged in or not. You see what happens is that I change the file that makes up the background so then your browser can't find the old one nor the new one so it is kinda stuck between two places so to speak. Hitting Ctrl+F5 downloads all the files again and then your browser gets the new wallpaper :D

    Thanks Frank...especially for putting the explanation in terms I can understand. Everytime I ask Randy a computer question, he starts into this long explanation, my eyes glaze over and soon I pass out from sheer exhaustion of trying to get past the first 5 words he said. :eek:

    And yes I think this new one should be the official spring 2006 wallpaper.
