One of the characters, a genteel Georgian dryly observes that the difference between a Yankee and a southerner is that upon meeting a Yankee he will tell you where he is going. The southerner will tell you where he is from. ...

And just as a reminder, every time you apply a new patch you have to reinstall the mod.

Why not use Imageshack to re-paste each image, like we do to post bug images ? I considered that, but I seem to recall some prohibition in the forum rules about directly linking to offsite images.
