Anybody qualify?


Bought the 4 DVD set in January 2014 and started my build and finished it up in January  2015. I use it constantly and it keeps my space toasty warm. I'm  not that tech savvy i have followed this site since 2013 and this would be my first post.  I did take pics of my progress  of the build.  Haven't  figured out how to post or attach pics.

Hi Bruce; Welcome to Finally posting at Permies!
We are glad you decided to come on in! The door has always been open!
Posting pictures is not to hard.
At the bottom of where you post a reply (or a new post) you will see a peach colored rectangle that says Attachments. Clicking on it will change things and now in the center there will be a button that says upload a file. Clicking on it will take you to your photo's.  They must be loaded one at a time and photo size matters. Too large and they will either take forever to load or more likely they will fail to load.
A good photo size is several hundred by several hundred. Several thousand by several thousand and you will have problems.
Pick your photo click on it and say ok.  That's all  easy easy,   this from a guy who is practically computer illiterate!

Very nice work Bruce!   Thank you for sharing!    My instructions must have been good enough.
I really am horrible with these new fangled machines and don't even get me started on smart phones!  Ha Ha

Glad you decided to come on in! We are very glad you are here, please keep coming back!
Like motel 6 the light is always on.

These are terrific Bruce! Would you mind if I asked you some questions about the process?

Thanks!
