I was thinking about making it disabled, even though your intentions are not very encouraging, so i hope you will behave this time
btw, why is it so hard to save a photo and later upload it to one of many free image hosting servers? Ohhhh, it takes time....right? I see hehe

So you do have an Australian accent as well, right? Then i would probably struggle a little bit to understand you, so would my wife. She's even worse than me when it comes to different english accents, she just gives up right after she hears it That's one of the reasons why i dont have an accent anymore lol

I dont really have an Australian accent when I speak Croatian. I noticed that accents can be heard in Croatian if the person has a heavy Australian or US accent to begin with.

Are we on accent issues, I have English accent and as I speak French and Italian I often like to pretend to be one - lol. Where I live there are so many Aussies we call it Ozz - accents are funny - well they like to end with Mick to often, you'a right Mick , lol.
There are few local accents you guys will have very hard time understanding, Scowser (Liverpool accent), New Castle and Scottish accent are very foreign to most ppl who come to UK for the first time, they have hard time understanding.

Even English ppl have hard time understanding them, I mean we often need to ask - can you say that again, lol
I sometimes have hard time placing South African accent, but otherwise all other accents are fine with me.

PS. - edit ----
My Croatian Accent is very English, if you heard me you'd figure out where I was from pretty quick, lol...

But you have a Dalmatian (Cakavski dialect) accent when you speak Croatian?
I have a typical Zagreb accent, sometimes also like to add stuff from Kajkavian dialect from Zagorje, but only privately...i didnt ever apply for a job speaking like that

BTW, your English is just too perfect and very flexible. You dont ever make any mistakes like I do or LF does

I actually dont speak Cakavski, but I do use Ikavski which gets muddles up with the standard norm of Jekavski. They find me weird in Zagreb .... LOL

The dialect in Zadar to me doesnt seem as heavy as from other parts of Croatia.

I got no worries this time. I just ordered a program that is supposed to prevent surfers from hotlinking images from your website. The program is called 'SinCity Stopper v.2.14' and it comes with an additional protection called 'Long Foot Blaster v1.89 beta"
