Pardon me, but you replied to my post. Go and read your original, and 
you will see underneath your top-posted comments (which violates this 
list's rules) my comments are quoted.

You are absolutely correct though that what you were talking about had 
nothing to do with my comments. Which is why I asked why you replied 
to my post to make them.

Oh, you've hacked into my computer and can see what I have done can you? 
I don't think so.

I assure you, I opened all seven images you have posted so far, 
including the three from your laptop which are the ones I'm talking 
about. The standard and "modified" laptop images seem pretty similar to 
me -- if there is a difference, I can't tell what it is.

On your laptop? Are you sure?

Let me give you a simple analogy that you might understand. I've walked 
up to Timothy and begun a new conversation, about the content of the 
picture on the front page. "Nice website," I say, "but the picture 
doesn't really advertise TDE very well." Only by email, not actual 

At which point you barge in to this thread of the conversation and start 
going on about your enormous screen and how the webpage doesn't flow to 
use the full width of it, instead of keeping that discussion in the 
thread of the conversation where it had already started.

You already had a thread to discuss that issue. Reply to that thread, 
not my comments.

If you reply to an email written by me, you are replying to me.
