    If I had to use anything other than my iPhone, I’d probably not be posting at all;).

    Smart phones have made communication easy:).

    Maybe @Mendel Leisk will fix it for me(y).

    Maybe outside the edit window, but here's the mis-rotated pic:

    upload_2019-4-19_8-19-0.png

    You can rotate pics on your iPhone, using the Edit function. When looking at a picture, along the bottom there's three lines, with a little circle on each. That's the edit function. In edit, rotation is kinda buried, inside the Crop function.

    Too, a tip my son gave me:

    When you're taking a pic with the iPhone, there should be a little bit of text at the top edge, saying HDR. Just watch it's orientation, that's the way the pic will be oriented. If that text is NOT oriented "normally", just rotate the phone a little more strongly in the direction you want it to be.

    Taking pics with the iPhone looking near straight down seems most problematic, the phone's orientation sensor messes up.

    Neat fact, although not sure how that might apply to my SmartPhone :( . I rely on the fact that the human brain being pretty smart, is quite capable of reading upside down and reversed text (and even text where all the descenders¹ have been sliced off)

    I can think of worse ways of spending Easter! (…groan!) I am reminded of infantile joke with which we used to shock our elders when I was a kid - we would stand with our arms outstretched, head hanging, as if nailed to a cross, and sigh "…what a bloody terrible way to spend Easter!" (…rim shot!)

    This has been a good period to pick for me to continually do the 2 cycle reconditioning ;).

    But this round I have a ride to take the place of our 2010:

    Just had to run some in town errands. Nothing like getting 999.9 mpg(y).

    Just finished up the top end balance:):

    203D7466-456B-42E0-8FF8-C0101D287366.jpeg

    Sat at 239 volts for 6 hours, so I’m calling this good;).

    Tomorrow I’ll take it for a spin, once I get the rear passenger tire back from the screw that found it:cool:.

    But from starting Thursday at 9 PM to today at 11 AM, not bad at all(y).
