    Great to see you getting out and about ... with a novel looking rig, I might add.

    That's some B...a...d ride, Frank.

    As I read it ... it is Chinese and translates to this:

    "The server has many uses

    The agent server has many uses, summarizes and analyzes. The classification showed: One most common possibly is unconscious is using with agent server sharing surfer many people, for instance through sygate, wingate, isa, ccproxy, N T system bringing network sharing and so on, may provide services and so on enterprise document buffer, duplication and address filtration, the server fully the limited band width which exports using the local area network, in speeds up the net user's access speed, may solve has line IP, IP resources to be insufficient merely, has the local area network many user surfer function, simultaneously may do is _blank" > Firewall, in isolation net with the outside net, server, and can provide the monitoring network and the record transmission information function, strengthened local area network's security, the server has been advantageous to the surfer user"

    Now, why they posted it here is a mystery. People do strange things, every day.

    You read Chinese??? You amaze me. Or did you convert it?? Who posted it? I have no idea why they picked my post. I don't understand it do you? Do you think they like my photos and didn't know how to say it?? LOL If they are from China maybe I can get them to send me a new lens cheap. LOL
    Thanks Frank

    By the way does the five stars on the post mean.

    I ran the text through the Bable Fish translator. I recognized it as Chinese ... and that's what came out. It looked rather pointless, in context.

    The stars are part of the forum's rating system. It is just above the first posting at the top of the page. Every member can rate the thread, from 1-5 stars ... then the stars from all the rating submissions are averaged out for the final talley for the thread. If only one person rates it ... then they are the average. So, in effect ... it only takes one person to make the thread ... a five-star hero ... or a one-star zero!

    ***** LOL
