    Suggest you query Rob directly - he sees to have the most trouble.

    Testing -

    Here's the antenna for my Sirius sat rxvr which works very well. It's supposed to be 800x600 and 45k in size.

    Yer right.

    Mark Twain said that too much of anything is bad except for whiskey where too much is just enough.

    Our Robbie thinks that applies to uploads, as well.

    Thanks, it looks like 800x600 may be a tad large for this site, I'll try something else at a lower res.

    This is, I think, 579x429 at 52 Kb

    Maybe too many Kb? Or wrong file type?

    Re: Just a test?

    Let me ask a question.

    I take it this thread started with a test of uploading a picture file to be included in a message.

    Now, I included a photo in one message, but I had to put the pic in my personal space at my ISP. Is it possible to upload a photo to Eric's board and dispolay it inline in a message? If so, how do I do that?

    I think you have to cut and paste the full DOS string for your photo between

    like this:
    click on the picture icon above and you get [ ... img ] and [ ... /img ]
    (spaces and dots added to confuse the HTML code)

    and paste something like C:/my documents/my pictures/cars/chevV81.jpg between.

    then click ' post '.

    here is a check:



    which became "http://C:/my documents/my pictures/2007_2_17/VX_8_engine_1_r700.jpg" ...that style of loading appears to require an HTTP filename [sigh]

    which shows that you cannot load that way...at least I cannot ... without having your pic in a valid http home...

    If you want to load files directly from your PC you would have to use 'attachments'... with filetypes as prescribed.
    Sorry that's not much help is it.... maybe I didn't get the full DOS string right? Here is the thing as an attachment anyway...

    Aha. An attachment. Let me try.

    This is what my Prius looks like (color, at least--mine is a 2006, the photo is a 2007)
