A fascinating story, this photo thingymabob on the forum doesnt seem to work any good any more I use a host site (I think thats what it's called) and then just post a direct link The site I use is called Postimage and it works fine and so far is free When you go to load up the photos under the lower right of the page at "other media" I just open the then other "insert from existing ULR" and baddah bing baddah boom it all happens Or you can email them to me and I'll load them up for you Paul
