    If my memory serves me right, you were the first one to break the posting record( 5000 ps) and you got some colorful firecrackers. ( your birthday too? :wink: )

    Does my memory give you the right answer?

    I tend to think as you've posted so many that you are somehow to be called as an old hand, and so is your age. :wink:

    Oh, maybe you can eventually:

In fact, we would probably avoid the possessive altogether and use the noun as an attributive: "the hotel windows." This rule (if, in fact, it is one) is no longer universally endorsed. We would not say "the radio of that car" instead of "that car's radio" (or the "car radio") and we would not write "the desire of my heart" instead of "my heart's desire." Writing "the edge of the ski" would probably be an improvement over "the ski's edge," however.
    "the company owner" and "the company's owner" have the same meaning anyway.
