    Hey all,

    This may be the dumbest question ever asked on the board but I just don't know how to do this. I did check the FAQ's and ran several searches and still couldn't find how to do this.

    Feel free to berate me for being blind and/or clueless.

    Oh,

    Feel free to berate me if we shouldn't use screen-shots in our posts.

    Thanks!

    I suspect you'd need access to either :

    a) Mr Excel's website

    b) your own website with which to link to via HTML

    b) is quite easy... you can register with lots of sites for free webspace, and the HTML command is quite simple :

    I thought it might be something like that.

    Thanks Chris!

    ps...something like this is not a screenshot, it's a table in HTML, designed to try to look similar to a screenshot

    if you press "quote" you'll see the HTML coding that sits behind this display.

    Mine happens to be all my own work, automated via excel, but there are other examples, probably a lot more superior !!!

    try Ivan's links on the following :

    Actually Adam, my home isp gives me 50 megs free webspace..... so maybe most posters here could also look into whether theirs' provides some similar facility

    (although I imagine a lot of us post from work so it may not be possible)

    I've been thinking of utilising this for screenshots, maybe even setting up a geocities site .....

    problem is, if you delete any, the links and images becoem invalid for anyone looking at older posts, so they'd have to stay there for ever

    this would mean you'd very quickly run out of meg space

    Another thing is that if we end up with posts peppered with images from varying isps, it *will* make the loading time for a page much longer, purely at the expense of cosmetics

    I'm not sure if the majority of people using this board would welcome that, given most of our solutions can be quite adequately expressed textually


    I know if ever I'm surfing and a page takes more than a minute to load, I just go somewhere else as I can't be bothered to wait......

    worth bearing in mind - if your image gets me impatient, I'm not going to stick around, I'll move on to the next post !

    Thanks again, man!
