I was just waiting for someone to come along and put some kind of positive spin on it  ;D  There isn't one no matter which way you look at it, IMO!!

Name/show me a worse example - I dare you!  Not sure I've ever seen one!  If you can manage it, I might change the title of this thread to 'Worst Ever Attempt at a Copy' or something similar and we can all have a jolly good chuckle  ;D

I can't find it but I think I know the one you mean - shame. I'm pretty sure his was actually better than this one but obviously I can't prove or disprove!

Not to be confused with real Atom owner and forum user Mota Liera. I think the guy you are talking about changed his forum name.

That's the one I meant.  Clare is reading over my shoulder (which is not annoying at all) and said "what's that?" and when I told her said "oh dear oh dear oh dear".  Couldn't have put it better myself.
