I suppose you don't know how to, ahem, liberate stuff from websites. http://www.tycotelecom.com/images/process_mural.jpg 1.2 MB The HTML code that displays it is quite simple: <div id="top" style="background-image:url(images/process_mural.jpg);"> <div id="slider"></div> </div> :-)

Date: Tue, 17 May 2011 12:35:44 -0400 From: "Moore, Carl \(Civ,ARL/SLAD\)" <firstname.lastname@example.org> To: email@example.com. Subject: letting it ring? (UNCLASSIFIED) Message-ID: <E37E0CCA58337B4195F363C78573E732015B5B29@ARLABML03.DS.ARL.ARMY.MIL> I haven't posted here in a while. Last night, I heard comment on Family Radio (on Harold Camping call-in program "Open Forum") about letting the phone ring. This reminded me of what Larry King did years ago -- tell HIS listeners who are calling in to let the phone ring. Some systems have a limit on how long the phone can ring. (This is NOT related to those "May 21 judgement day" billboards some of you may have seen.)
