We cannot expect new guys who are unfamiliar with the technical details BOTH of IronHeads AND of computers'forums/etc to communicate well here. It is OK for us guys to be a bit annoyed from time to time on behalf of new guys

"13 AMP, not 10."

Oh that makes all the difference, I'm ordering heated gloves, vest, and a 100watt headlight I have been wanting! (and a 1000watt sub woofer for the stereo).

Is the EQ included?
I like that smiley curve turned up loud so's I can't hear the sirens behind me.

"|The only thing that kills me is including all the pics from a post in a quote, especially when there are lots of pics."

That's hit the nail on the head.

With a little more effort you can make a YouTube video of how to do this.

A forum member was here at my home a few years ago, looking over my shoulder while I worked the forum. He saw me edit a quote. "Oh! Is that how you do that! Cool!"

It's really the re-sizing thing with pictures that they need help with.

While the supersized 15,256,000 X 12,740,000 pictures allow me to see detail I would otherwise miss (I'm legally blind) if the picture is nothing more than a blurry shot of stock 1979 it makes every other post on the page a scroll job.

That means I have to use my hand and my arthritis kills me in the wintertime.

But what am I saying. This site isn't for educating people. Go do a basic computer course while your still on lockdown you guys. You have time now.

O Mick, add the re-sizing o you YouTube video.

Rick, you know there is a cigarette lighter option available for Big Twins that can be adapted to the fork cover on the H ?

I know you smoke pipes but you can plug a USB charging port in there and live stream Netflix.

Didn't think about that one did ya ?
