Cassandra, a solitary writer in Barcelona (a US ex-pat) gets a call for help from a stranger - a stylish woman named Frankie - who wants Cassandra to find her husband, so he can sign some important papers.

Ooooooookay - thanks for the lowdown - I must have missed that in the FAQ somewhere. How many posts do I have to make before I can use PM-ing ??

You will need 10 posts or more, we set this rule to avoid members and mods like Satdude having to turn off their PM function, as they were being besieged with PMs, asking questions which should be asked in the forum so everyone can benefit.

It isn't in the FAQ, because all that would happen would be new members making 10 silly or meaningless posts, just so they could use the PM service.

Cool avatar indeed although I'm sure we would not want our dishes to be struck by ball lightning in reality though... :)

Thanks for everyone's info, and the comments on my avatar. Yep, I'm quite pleased with it - I made it myself, using PaintShop Pro and CoffeeCup Animator. Basically, I found a suitable pic, colored and resized it, then added different sized sunbursts to the frames. CoffeeCup Animator can set different display times for each frame. The only difficult part was getting the filesize under 20k.

SkyScanner.

PS here's what my real setup looks like:



3 fixed dishes for Astra 1, 2, and Hotbird, and a motorised 1.8m that needs a new feedhorn.
