That was interesting.  For some reason the your.gif was corrupted and became
an animated gif.  I fixed it.

I tested the search a bit and got a weird result on one of them.
I typed in "you" and got a choice of "you" and "your."  I picked "you"
and it showed me the SW for "you" and the choices for "you" and "your"
were still given so I chose "your" next.  In the SW display box, a sign
appeared that was not "yours" and then another sign appeared, and
another and another.  I think it went through all the signs in your
database in about 30 seconds.
