As many probably know, the nice little feature we have here for attaching an image to a post uses quite a bit of bandwidth not to mention some space too.

Linking an image into a post does not affect us in the same manner, so it is the preferred method of showing TLP your pics.

However, most free web based image hosts do not allow off-site linking.

If anyone has or nows of one that does or just knows of a good hosting site please post it here. This thread is not for discussion of the topic however, please limit your posting to actual image hosting site information.

I will start the list with a nice one that I have used some, it was originally posted by a fellow member "duztin". Thanks duztin!

This one is free and allows linking, be kind and make a small donation to them if you can afford it.

I pay $20 a year for 50Mb or 500 pics. I haven't had any problems using their services. I upload all of my pics there and link to them. They even resize the pics when you upload - kind of a pisser at times, but for the most part, it saves me work.

It Is Not Free But It Works For Me

Like I always say, Image Event is the best. I pay $24.00 a year, I paid a one time fee of $19.95 and now I can have up to 3000 images, with a maximum 10 MB per image. Hard to beat! Plus it is really easy to use.

This image is 61 k or so, i could go up to 1 MB on the same image or down too. Very simple and easy to post and there are no adds, or distractions. Plus I can e-mail a whole album to a dial up guy and he can access directly from the thumbnails. Cool stuff. You can also post up .Mpg, .avi and other movie formats........

Interesting timing... seems that attachments closed down Cycleforums for a bit!
Copied from the home page there! :lol

Database error cleanup

ETR UNKNOWN

UPDATE:
Cause of errors: resources have exceeded 65535 handles in attachment DB,
trying to find a quick fix to bring back online with attachments...... might
have to go a day without attachments.


FIX IS RUNNING
mysql is currently changing attachment.attachmentid from smallint(5) to
int(10) thanks to vbulletin thinking noone would ever have more than 65535
attachments, haw haw.

Might take a bit to run, then i have to re-check the tables.... still ETR of
40 minutes or less.

ETR is 40 minutes.

Time is 1130CST

And that is EXACTLY what we are trying to avoid here.

I love images. They are helpful and cool.
But this habit of using the "this post is worthless without pictures" emoticon is a habit we need to break. :rant

Attaching images is fine, but keep them small and try to find a host. Simply put, when you get a new pieces part, we don't need 17 angles/posts.

There is an Exception to the 17 Angle Rule, Right Tim?

Simply put, when you get a new pieces part, we don't need 17 angles/posts.
Unless you link them, right Tim?:coocoo

Note how shamelessly (is that actually a word?) i link to another of the oft whored TLR black frame pictures!

:rant Halo.

I've got to the very, very last checkpoint and can't get through it to see the final animated scene. :banghead I've unlocked all 10 chapters in about 40hours. I got frustrated with the last bit so whacked in Brute force and spent all night on that one, must start going to bed on time. I was supposed to go to work today, now I'll have to do it tomorrow. :coocoo

I played The Simsons: Hit and Run the other day. Man that is so much fun, and funny too. All the characters are there and the voices are spot on too. Its only taken them 15 years to bring out a decent Simpson game but worth the wait. I've got a PS2 atm and I'm not a huge fan of games in general but this game has finally wrestled my attention away from GT3 !!!
