I'd like to see the screenshots on the VATIL site, but I just get page with some writing on it that I cannot read.  I suspect I have to login?

Bic, you do not need to log in to read my screenshot posts. Just go to the VATIL forums at http://vatil.org.il/forum/ and you will see screenshot subforum where you can go and look for my screenshot post showing same subject heading.
