    Thanks Ben!
    I have wondered (never enough to do any research) if that was possible.
    Thanks again!

    By the way, why did you change the banner picture from the awesome Mustang (it is refreshing to find another mustang guy) to the keyboard?

    @Highlander37: The keyboard is maybe a little more “techy” in my opinion?

    It may be more “techy”, but not nearly as cool as a Mustang Cobra with a body kit & spoiler…….. but that is just my opinion.

    Well, when you run a tech site.. and the other two authors aren’t Mustang fans… well, the Keyboard looked better with the Geek Tips theme.
