If you're going to put all these pictures in, can you change the width to 400 and leave the height blank? Makes the page load a bit smoother...

I thought the forum auto-resizes to 500 pixels wide?
400 I think. But if you don't resize them there can be a definite "WIDE PICTURE/narrow picture" pause. Not such a big deal if there's only one but when there are lots it becomes more noticeable. Doesn't happen if they're sized on insertion.
I'm not going to huff if you don't...
Some wireless systems:
SB Touch (or computer or music server) via usb or opt or analog jack into - Xeo transmitter wirelessly to - Dynaudio Xeo 3 or 5 (including multiroom).
