Ooh, who's a clever boy, then? Yup, that fixed it. Now I can sleep tonight without wondering why I am 5 hours behind my computer. Thanks, mate.

I like this week's one but, then, I guess that you knew I would. Funny, that.
I presume that it is possible to save these wallpapers to one's personal files?

Re this week's picture, this Abbey appears, possibly, to be still inhabited, in the left-hand side. I would imagine that it would be a pretty major job to get, even part of it, habitable.

Or could it be that, despite its appearance, the building was never"sacked" totally and it has been occupied, continuously, since its construction?.

Unless my beady old eyes deceive me, the silks that this week's jockey are wearing say:"courtesy costs" along his pants-leg.

Now, I know that the racing game is alleged to be a pretty cut-throat sort of an activity (Dick Francis, anyone?) but is that REALLY the attitude of all of its practitioners? Or is it a slogan that I haven't come across to date?

I can't help thinking that this week's wallpaper looks how the World used to look to me, before I got my glasses.

When the Optician says that the Patient shouldn't be driving, with his vision the way it is, then it's time to do summat about it. So I did - to the tune of about $NZD500.

When he said to me "Read that chart" and I said to him "What chart?" I guess that his suspicions were a little bit aroused??? Just joking, but I must be honest and say that I really couldn't read the one which determined whether I was fit to drive, eyesight-wise.

This week's desktop, Hedingham Castle, reminds me of pictures I've seen of those "dark, Satanic mills" of the Midlands. You know, the ones that were always associated with the old expression "ther's trouble down at t' Mill". All about two steps removed from East Lynn.

Really, though, that place looks as if it's built like a brick sh.....use, well built like a brick castle, I suppose....

But the answer is - hit <shift> and <print screen> - this will copy your screen to the Windows clipboard - then just paste it into your favourite graphics package, and size to taste!

A couple of questions about this week's Wallpaper.

While the track through the Forest is obviously little-used by vehicles today, if at all, would it have been a Coach-road or similar thoroughfare in earlier days?

Is this Forest typical of the density of Forests of, say, a couple of hundred years ago? Or woud they have been thicker and today's version being purely re-growth of cut-over areas?

Where is the Forest in relation to the village of Epping? I can find Epping in my Atlas but can see no reference to the Forest, either on the map or in the Index.
