    The only way I can envision not being able to successfully link images with Firefox, would be if you were running a script blocking extension such as, 'Noscript', which would then require you to issue permissions to the sites in question, to allow the necessary scripts to cross link the file to run

    Hi Tried to go to bed, but this kept me awake. I have no problems attaching a image in other threads. Only this thread.
    And wah-la you have it (Not) Something is going on here that I'm not understanding what it is, and I'm only getting more confused.
    Is that what you're trying to do to me and @Boilerhog146 @captaincranky ?? You seem to have no trouble posting your image but myself and @Boilerhog146 seem to have a problem. Do you ever sleep @captaincranky ??
    Am I we getting into big trouble here on TS again? Will I get put on restrictions again. OH no! I hoping that was water under the bridge and I was safe here on TS and was being excepted as a contributor and a helping hand here on TS.

    Good Night my new friend! You are very computer savvy my friend. Help the 6 or 7 of us that try to help members with PC issues and I'll see if I can get staff to get you a different TS title. ;) This is not my first rodeo. but may be my last.:D
    I'm skating on thin ice here, so I better cool it.
    Gary!
    PS1 Will be interesting to see what's in my email tomorrow. Fingers crossed that it's all good. I have not found a easy way to add a image on this thread. LOL
    PS2 I have no problem when you pick on me @captaincranky . I was new here, but now after 6 months, I know you and it's good when you pick on me.(y) I feel loved!

    I haven't withheld any information or given any misdirection in my posts. I would speculate that you may not have endeared yourself to staff, by posting that image in Java code. How they feel about, or what they did about it, is above my paygrade. I do know that the "image" was pulled, in both your post and my quote of it.

    There is obviously more opportunity to put active code into a Java sequence, thasn there is with that code already reduced to an image. Mostly all images, are exactly what they seem, and quite harmless. It's a difficult project to infect or bury code in them, especially for a random target
    And here again, I don't feel I'm being given any special privileges with respect to upping images to this thread. But as I said earlier, I can't log in as you or Mr. Boilerhog, so I can't be certain.

    Of course, but I am a nocturnal creature.

    I can't envision any issues arising out of what's been discussed thus far. AFAIK, the only consequences which might arise, is all of this being pulled for being so far off topic.

    Here we are getting into murky water, regarding my title or lack thereof. I'm good with "addict", I feel it allows me to function more freely in the forums. I don't want an recognition beyond my post count, and seniority. I've been a member for a decade, and my first priority, in spite of my screen name, is, and has always been, to bring laughter to the forums.

    And I really do wish you would get your aspirations for my title, behaviour and purpose here, out of your head.

    I started out in the help forums, I'm not going back, for a variety of reasons. If I trip over something I think I could help with , I'll post to the topic. As I keep stressing, belonging to Techspot, for me, is a sociological mingling with the Tech set, not an attempt to write the next great app, or solve technical problems for people who in many cases, have brought their computer woes on themselves.

    The best council I can give you, is to reign in your own impetuous behavior, dial back your expectations, examine your motives carefully, and above all relax.

    Oh, don't you worry, you're far from being out of range of my slings and arrows as of yet..

    Finally, were she alive today, Marie Antoinette would be coming into her own. She could casually declare, "let them eat cake", with a sly wink and a nudge, knowing it was now made out of poop, with a paper thin coating of vanilla icing.

    I'm thinking the thin coating of icing on the cake ,would have a hard time covering the fact the poop is still poop.tech back then would have trouble changing the smell and flavor.some one might notice.
    I allways found ,if it looked like sh!t, and smelled like sh!t, I didn't need to taste it. now I'm not so sure.
    What have they done ?

    Hey, with your coffee and my cake, we could open a chain of coffee shops. I'll give some thought to the naming. Perhaps, "Dunkin Droppings", or maybe, "Starturds".

    Dude, some people consider Limburger cheese to be delicacy, and that garbage will make me wretch form a half block away.

    As for poopy smelling cake, you just wash it down, (the first time around, of course), with a healthy slug of Red Dye #2, then sell it as "red velvet". Add a little Febreze to the dough, and you'll have people farting gardenia blossoms.. ;)

    Hi I give up. This is above my pay grade. I can't compete here. ROFL. I'm wondering how long the staff will allow this. I guess we will know tomorrow. I'm hoping I'm still around!

    I heard the Limburger didn't taste as bad as it smelled .I couldn't get close enough to find out.

    put it in a tube and I'll try it.
    I'm sure the treated poop is gonna end up in everything ,as soon as they see the muskonauts lappin it up. it will be on the menu in the cafeteria , the light up sign reads ,,,Have your Cake and Eat it too.

    Yeah, I've also heard rumors about how, "once you get past the smell it's as good as eaten". ;) :cool:

    Wow! What Have I created here? Please don't take this out on me. I thought we were having fun, but it seems to be getting to serious now, and I don't need any problems here on the forum, so I'm bowing out. I have been in trouble before and I barely escaped. I don't need any more problems here LOL.
    PS I'm afraid to open my email tomorrow.

    Dude, I was talking about Limburger cheese. What did you think I meant?

    I think it's time for the sound track. You want trouble, you got it.
