All my embedded images were/are stored online at this site thanks to Gary allowing me a "placeholder (index) page" with subfolders. Since takeover by AG, I can no longer do this and all previous posts' linked visual images contained within my posts are no longer linked and now appear as little blue boxes with a '?' in them, i.e. totally useless. I have no access and cannot add or embed further images. Have not had an OttoStart ad here for years, but as I recall diode was just a 'safety' item and may be left off.
