    The only snipping tools I know anything about are my aviation snips. However, I'm going to try looking up "snipping tool" and see if I can make it work for me, thanks Jim.

    If it really is that easy to side-step the blocking, then they can't pretend that it's some sort of anti-fraudster measure. That won't hold water. Online miscreants have access to the same tools, and are very proficient with computers, so it goes back to my original contention: They're just being petty, trying to coerce us into revisiting their site more often perhaps. Or they have something to hide.

    Anyway, thanks very much for the tip, Jim. I'm going to give it a try and see if I can add that to my sporter file. All good reference material for an upcoming project.

    Update: I took your advice. I gurgled "snipping tool" and waded through some online tutorials. Worked great - now I'm a certified computer geek! Thanks again, Jim.

    Or you can just a screen shot, post it into MS Paint and crop it however pleases you.

    And it works very well!

    In all fairness, I can't conclusively state that the screen shot thingy wouldn't work. Since I have no idea what it is, I never tried it. All I did was try my usual "right click, save picture as", and it wasn't available. I keep the snipping tool at the bottom of my screen now, and I've used it for a number of things since you clued me in.

    Just do a search for "how to take a screenshot". Many keyboards have a dedicated key, usually in the upper right area.
