you forgot the most important instruction:

Resize your photo to under 600 X 450 pixels before you save it. Otherwise, the picture comes in as an (almost) full screen.

Ps sorry, this is one of my pet peeves.
Sorry sorryKristin

How do you resize pictures anyway? Just kidding. I actually just grabbed any JPG as an example. Wasn't paying any attention to size.
My rant wasn't aimed at you. Good job nmLen J

Kristin, you in the south central part of cheeseland or did you just pick that image for all the nice contour lines?

I live in Stoughton, WI, just a little south of Madison.

But I go up to Devil's Lake several times each summer. Over laborday last year I rode down from the 500 sites, then climbed up County DL and out Highway 123. Its the biggest hill I've found since moving to Chicago.

Ah, fellow midwesterner! How do you like this weather? Personally, I think it sucks! It is this time of year I am really jealous of those southwest folks. Ah well, by May, they'll be wishing they were us! I'm just glad I don't have much in the way of time on the bike scheduled these next two weeks! Makes it just that much easier to stay ont he trainer in the basement!

May your coffee be warm!
