My own problems with it haven't gone away yet...
I login as recommended, under the banner, but I still need to fill in the cheeky little conversational box that crops up when I want to inspect a thumbnail. ;-)
It was so nice when I simply clicked on the icon on my desktop and it was all systems go, immediately!
Anyway, c'est la vie,
Have a great festive season and forget the Admin. duties for a while!
