I never get the magazine. Must do something about that someday.

I'm not sure what you're referring to?

In the pdf, there is a photo behind the ones on "top". I think it's Wolty and Annie but I see it only briefly. Had it open in the browser...

OK, on looking again, I did see something flash on displaying the page. On checking it out in Adobe Illustrator, I see that only about a quarter of the top right photo is visible, being overlaid by those to the left and below, chopping off Annie and Praxis, and my beer and beer gut.

Damn. I didn't know that happened. So instead of overlapping I need to crop.

Lee, don't worry about it. I was just being nosy (and apparently in the process calling Praxis, Wolty ).

I think you can flatten it to get rid of it. But then again we do have a flashing Annie and Prax.
