      Headache is right. Yuk I briefly scooped up the basics and pertinent info and of course, I saved it to favorites for picking at gradually.

        And that's just the copyright basics ! Do you think the Bayer company might have had a hand in writing some of that stuff?

          by Crissyanon
          Has any one heard of a poor mans copyright? Some one told me I could put my images on a cd and send it certified mail back to myself.
