@Georgie, I removed the image link that you had in your above message post, this is an ideal example of what we were refering to in the other thread about hotlinking. Hotlinking files (especially images) basically steals bandwidth, and increases it tremendously (as the pic has to load for everone who views this thread).
Why do you have a *camera* to help the world track your table and wastebasket? Can we hope to catch a sight of you in one of those pictures?
Hehe, the last time that my ¥Weeds¥ Cam webcam was active was when I was in process of packing up for my move to Crystal River (hence the boxes and such). Other pics are mostly of stuff of mine, don't wanna go scaring the kiddies away with my ugly mug <LOL>. Anyhow, surf to http://www.cmoo.com/~snor/weeds/Weeds_Backwoods_Homestead/Weeds_Backwoods_Homestead.htm
, there may be an obscure image or two of me there.
Also, the richnagel site has to be paid, doesn't it? You can't get that for free when you sign up for earthlink e-mail. Most of us kids don't have a website. The free forums like Caesar's does not allow the loading of an image from your beloved personal computer. They are quite stingy because they are worried about possible abuse and misuse of that.
The CMOO site isn't part of my Earthlink account, it's provided by a friend of mine who is buddies with another guy who owns the webspace provider (CMOO). My Earthlink accounts are set up for http://home.earthlink.net/~richnagel
, although there isn't much there (and the rfnagel one redirects to another page). But... I could upload and store up to 10 megs of files/images in either of the above two (or create up to 8 email addresses with Earthlink and use each of their provided web space).
Anyways, basically what Brf posted... your ISP usually gives you some form of free webspace to do with what you wish, and again, you can NOT link an image directly to your hard drive... it simply does not work.
Another option is to purchase web space and/or a domain name from Yahoo. Examples: http://www.richnagel.net
. Mine is simply a registered domain name with redirection (as I didn't purchase any web space from Yahoo), but my sister's (Melinda) site is a registered domain name as well as a ton of web space and bandwidth.
Either way, you have to pay for web space, in one form or another... either the free web space that is provided by your already-paid for ISP, or purchasing web space (with the option of domain registration) through a third-party company (such as Yahoo, or another example CMOO).
