Employment and prices.

Generally, you need to host the images as .jpeg for them to work, the file extensions that are being shown by babytooth are incompatible with this form of phpbb, I think…

oppps…sorry guys, just doing this on the fly…the main bloody drawback from bberg is that you cant select and save text, its all embedded images…

but i think the gifs work and they speak loudly and clearly!!

baby_tooth, I think these are the numbers you wanted to post.

You can actually cut and paste text on the Bloomberg screen, just drag your mouse over something while holding down the left button, then press ctrl-C while still holding the left button. Where there’s a lot of pages you can choose “Download Story” from the options menu at the top of the screen, this puts the story into a txt file on your c: drive.
