A VERY big :hiya: to those who are looking here......:thumbsup:

About this thread......:lesson:

I am working very hard on it and am trying to create a single thread which has useful info for all from posts here by others, I take no credit for the posts they are all from members.

I hope will read through them and those that know will start (I hope) to correct them to help others. I am actually reading EVERY post in EVERY thread :boring: ........This is UNPAID work for me...........ONCE completed I will ask that any changes or additional info from members be added to that thread.

Hope you are all OK with this? What I would ask is that people who do find massive errors or would like to add to any post start to keep a text file (notepad) start with the section and title I have used, next line the address of the post, then a short factual text about what needs to be added or corrected , maybe post number to add/correct info in, credit will be given to people who add/help with info - PLEASE NOTE people who have posted incorrect info THEN corrected within the following posts should NOT be corrected - this shows a learning curve that other may relate to and understand more.........

I have 77 pages of threads to look through - Currently I have finished page 53 working toward page 1 - KEEP AN EYE HERE !!!!

Edit: There are now 85 pages and im on page 59! - Proof that CRT is still going strong.......

A have learnt there is more to the world than Barco :eek:

(NOTE TO SELF : add offical web sites)
