    Couple of problems here.

    Three Problems:

    1. Can't view photos at the work computer. Computer is a killer Gateway quad core running Vista. This site is the only site where I cannot view the attached photos. When I click on the attachment, I get "The system cannot find the file specified." error. This really irks me, as I like to see what Ron Jr. is up to.

    2. Can't post from my home computer. After each character is typed, I get a "debug?" error that I have to cancel out of. It takes 10 minutes to type a whole sentence. Very frustrating. I can, however, view attachments.

    The above two items have been like this for a few months. It may have seemed that I fell of the earth, but I have just not been able to get on from home. Has the site changed appreciably in reference to security?

    And.... To keep this "Heating" related.....

    3. In an effort to get me out of the boiler room, I am trying to make control wiring diagrams using photos of the actual controls. I need software that will allow me to place photos of the controls and then allow me to "wire" them with different colored lines. I have Visio 2007, but can't figure out how to get this done. Tried Paint Shop Pro to no avail. Windows Paint will not let me load more than 1 photo. Spent the whole day in my office trying to accomplish this, and all I did was hear some AWESOME music.

    Any assistance is GREATLY appreciated.

    Solution to #2.

    In your browser, go to Tools->Internet Options.

    Choose the 'Advanced' tab.

    In Settings, under Browsing, make sure both 'Disable script debugging' boxes are CHECKED.

    As for #1, not sure about it, but try scrolling down the Settings to Multimedia and make sure 'Show pictures' is CHECKED.

    As for #3, I think you'll miss the scalability if you use actual photos instead of line drawings, but you can use Insert->Picture->From File to get an image into Visio, then select the image and use Format->Line to put a line border around it. Then you can use the Connection Point tool to add some connection points to the border of the image so you can connect lines to it.
