Re: Exercise equipment--best buys

My ex. weighed about 115 lbs. and did little exercise
unless you count shopping. My black lab weighs almost that much, and no. I'm no implying my ex. was/is a dog.
Quite the contrary

They're sticking them up on the web somewhere (picture posting sites, the home ISP web space, etct.) and then they're sticking the URL for the picture between two IMG tags in their message. *You can do similar things with any image that you find on the net too. *That's how I posted the picture above of the squat rack.

If you look at the URL for TH's last picture it is - http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v639/tfh/6409dad7.jpg *So, it looks like he is using http://www.photobucket.com/ for his pictures. *They have free picture posting with some limits or paid posting with fewer limits.

Re: Exercise equipment--best buys

Photobucket is the one Cutthroat recommended to me, and I like it.

For free you can post roughly a hundred photos. You pay and the photo sizes can be larger than 250K (it auto-resizes them for you if they're larger), you can bulk upload, and theres no reasonable limit on the # of photos you can have. $25 a year for the paid service. The free one appears to be working fine for me. Each photo you upload includes a direct link to it, and also several YABB friendly links. I made the above photo inserts by cutting the link starting with [img] and pasting that directly into the reply text here.

Mikey - my wife is fully invested and experiencing very satisfactory diversification at this time

The cool car was indeed cool, expecially the part where I sold it within moments of it doing a "blues brothers" implosion.
