I'll let you all in on a little secret, one of the gremlins that plague web masters. Do you see the picture of me alongside this opening paragraph? Looks good right where it is, doesn't it? Every month when you log in to read this column, there I am. It is reassuring, sort of like Christmas coming in late December, and not popping up any old time it feels like it. The picture belongs there. But there is a problem: if the picture is sitting right there, it means that images, pictures, or board diagrams, cannot appear at the beginning of the article. I know, because I have tried, and when I slip in a picture or a diagram too close to the start of my article, Frank, GammonVillage's unsung but indispensable man, asks if I could please write a few extra sentences to kick things off, and create the space he needs to build the page. Sometimes it works out well – I know just what to say. Other times I feel foolish, as though I were killing time and babbling away until I get to the real beginning of my article. Just thought I'd mention it.
