It's ok now that those pics have disappeared off the current screen! I can assure you it had nothing whatsoever to do with the considerable quantity of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc and the occasional Stella I had today! We pulled a stunt on the collective littlies of six families today by producing a fake Father Xmas, my son-in-law, whose only concession to the role was a red hat, and as one, all the kids yelled," That's not Father Xmas, It's Aaron", but they still queued up fo presents. Fabulous! I'm having one more glass of some very fine Single malt, then I'm off to knock out a few Zedz! I'm kernackered!

Well my Christmas has been ruined by a stomch bug I think was brought on by eating something not right the other day. So instead of the planned day with all the family at Mum's, I've been lying in bed watching Christmas television.
Funnily enough I feel almost better now. Typical, just when its all ruddy well over. At least Mum sent me over a plate of leftovers.
It's just that Corsair picture, the larger picture was posted to give us a better view. Shouldn't be a big deal, at least not in IE Explorer.
Pain in the butt for us Safari, Firefox users even though I have upgraded the monitor to 20" cinema wide screen. (16:9 format) Maybe I just need to find the preferences and change em but don't know where to look? Don't have any Microsoft programs on this machine. I will wait a couple of days till it drops off the 75 list.
Some of us find the 'Recent' page the best way to follow the forum. This is why it is an issue beyond that thread.
For those rare instances (like this one) where a really large image is of use, how about linking to the image (which by definition is somewhere else on the web) as an external link (url tag), rather than embedding (image tag).
2. A bit more complex code, using the url for 'original' size from flickr for where it links to (after 'url='), and the url for 'small' size for the image that will be displayed here (after "img]". I tried adding line-breaks in the code to make it easier to read, but then it doesn't work.
3. I see that www.postimage.org provides the BBCode required to do the above. Nice and easy if you use them to host your photos. I noticed this trick from this post
