Oh well I just thought it might be too slow for you. Must be wrong on that. I'm curious why it won't run on the computer though. It's only another website. Do you want to try to fix it?

I'm not sure how to do that on the I phone Argy Bee, I use the iPhone as I can't get Project Noah to load on my computer :-( it does at a minuet or two to upload, but did any not upload right??

Great info and nice daisies - thanks. btw I notice your pics take a while to download. They must be taking a long time for you to upload? If so you might want to make them .jpg at about 1000x1000 and 92% compression. That would take just seconds.
