Wasn't really mad or anything,Jack,because you're a fairly nice fellow here in this forum...but having extra-large photos can sometimes make it difficult to scroll down the page or,if it's REALLY big,even connect to the page itself.Your photo wasn't all that bad,actually,especially when compared to the pic that Paul posted last year of Petra's mountain-based training camp.It was a beautiful pic.....yet as enormous as a chalkboard,and it took a few of us TEN MINUTES to connect to the page.Paul,of course,is one of the crown jewels of TF,so it's hard to be angry with him

I rock minimalistic style with no icons, taskbar, wallpapers or start menu just pure awesomeness of Launchy and dual mon setup

I can understand you, it's dump that this forum can't handle big pictures by reducing them so you can click on them if you wanna see the full resolution. :roll:
It's like the Murphy's law that if I wanna find small picture to show something I'll get enormous size image while if I wanna find a big one as a wallpaper I'll get only the smallest in the world.

P.S.: I've reedited the post so the image is much smaller now.

What is that?The new Transparent Beer??Looks like water yet has the same old kick?

Am hoping for the best from Kookie;on rare occasions,players go into Bitch Mode and just piss away their blogs b/c they're disappointed over an unexpected defeat.However,it's clearly understood that you're supposed to sign off,so to speak,after you've lost.....or at the end of the tourney if you end up as champion.Rennae Stubbs and Bethanie Mattek-Sands are two of those who blabbed a bunch of blah,blah,blah about how much they loved blogging and connecting with the fans...only to show what loudmouthed phonies they were after losing---when they went conspicuously silent.Kookie seems like such a sweet gal(as Mr.Zakopalov would probably agree),so I have higher expectations of her

Just for info: Men version of the last name Zakopalova is "Zakopal". Zakopalov would be some Russian guy, I guess.
But that's irrelevant because his name is most likely totally different because in our country women takes a name of her husband or keeps her own. It's very rare to adopt your wife's last name into your name (such as our firt Czechoslovak president Tomas Garrigue Masaryk who adopted last name of his wife Charlotte Garrigue). Anyway, that clearly wasn't your point so take this as an informative article from me.

Re: Random Posts/miscellaneous/anything Petra :)

Still no word from Kookie;perhaps she's busy sightseeing around Katowice but,whatever the case,I really hope that she acts professionally and follows through with her blog.There are too many shallow,self-centered gals on Tour,and it would be a damned shame if one of the nicer ladies started following their lead

Kookie....She's just too sweet.She was in sort of a bitchy mood after she and Renata lost,so she drove back to Prague from Katowice that same night.Then,two days later,she remembered her commitment to answer fan questions and she followed through.I hope that Mr.Zakopal is a nice guy and appreciates what a Czech diamond jewel he has for a wife
