reading back thru the old post's. i see a lot of attachments that wont load up, also dead links.
can we load pictures directly to the site, so they can be seen in years to come.

Stuart,
Some of the images which won't load were lost in a forum crash a number of years ago.
Others are links to images which have been moved/deleted by the image owner.
In the past, some members refused to load onto the forum and when they departed (in bad mood), they moved their images so no one could benefit from them.
There are advantages and disadvantages with forum hosted images. The main disadvantage being that the forum software would not let us load anything buy pdf files for a long time. I haven't tried since the SPAM Tsunami. I will give it a go tonight.

Tony
