Just playing with avatar settings at the mo'
edit 1
and wondering why a photobucket image does not work.
edit 2
Tried again with imageshack - and have avatar. Yay!



What I did find is that when copying & pasting, not to copy the http:// part of the address, because the upload box seems to insist on including that part for you, even if you try to delete it first. Thus if you do, you end up getting http://http//www.rest.of.addy.
hth.

Yeah, it's showing up now.


--------------------
Every atom in your body came from a star that exploded. And, the atoms in your left hand probably came from a different star than your right hand. It really is the most poetic thing I know about physics: You are all stardust. You couldnít be here if stars hadnít exploded, because the elements - the carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, iron, all the things that matter for evolution and for life - werenít created at the beginning of time. They were created in the nuclear furnaces of stars, and the only way for them to get into your body is if those stars were kind enough to explode. So, forget God. The stars died so that you could be here today. ~Lawrence Krauss

Another image host I've used recently is http://wimg.co.uk

No need to register an account just the browse button to scan your computer for a pic and upload it.
If you're using the image for an avatar, copy and paste the Direct Link code
or if in your signature or for a post use the BBcode....[img]--[ /img]
