TC is in the top three, I'll grant you, but this is my pick for numero uno:

I believe Hartston says in 'How to Cheat at Chess' that dogs are too stupid to play chess whereas cats don't want to.

Carl - happy to take 'em down if they're going to cause bother. Just say the word. I did think twice about the cartoon one, owing to potential copyright issues.

No happy for them to continue I just need to take the backup of this forum a little more serious that is all

The database with all posts etc. is backed up every night as you would expect to a remote location but the attached pictures are held as separate files and these need to be sorted more often than I do now

Do all pics really have to be backedup? Wouldn't just a (ex)sample do?
(Pics like the president's new clothes one in the Gibraltar thread are relevant, however.)
