Posted:The amazing Fiery Wings Of Death as seen here are not my idea but my invention. I the only set I've ever seen apart from mine were being used by a street performer in the Edinburgh Festival in 1998. They're enormous fun to use and have amaxing sound and heat but the only thing is you cannot stop moving at all cos the handles are two inches away from the flame. To see them in action have a look at the video clip from the Beltane fire society in the competition section. Full construction details to follow, these are real paraffin guzzlers by the way.

Posted:Ave a peek at this: http://www.homeofpoi.com/ubb/ubbcode.html
and it should explain all. There's a link to this page from next to the textarea you write posts in. From a web designer point of view it's always interesting to see how often people don't see links and content on web pages!

Posted:Or mine?!!! I can't see them either!!! Another question: In order to send pictures, do they have to be at a web address on a site, or can I post them from my desk top, like I can through email?

Can miles truly separate us from friends? If we want to be with someone we love aren't we already there? If there is someone willing to show, and there is someone willing to see; magic happens. This is whem humans are alive. This is when the wingless fly.

Posted:Both pictures in this thread aren't working anymore, so that's why you can't see them.Dibs, lass. They have to be on the internet somewhere for you to link to them. Like at http://www.mysmilies.com/
which will even give you the code to copy and paste into your message. Simple, once you know how.

Posted:The problem is that many/most free webservers will not let you link directly to images stored on their sites (eg yahoo, geocities and many more).Ideally you need your own domain name, or find a server that lets you link to an image.If the image is in your cache then it will still show on this page.[This message has been edited by Bendy (edited 27 March 2002).]

Posted:Glow- maybe because the pic is on Yahoo groups. If you've got a Yahoo login cookie you've got permission to see it. Other people ain't. Or it's Bendy's reason. It's a complx teknikal web servery thingy.

Posted:Tom- I hit refresh... Nope, i can still see it!!Dibs - Im with you on that one! i wanna see my own pics!! Can any of you internet boffs help me out with something: Imbedding an image on a web page. I dont seem to be able to do it, because i dont know where you have to put the pic in order to type the location. Does that also have to already be on the web?? If not, how do i get the pic to become part of the page? Of should i just use microsoft front page, instad of notepad, to make it easier for myself?Whew!!

There used to be a link to some MSN HoP community thingy in someone's signature here (I think it was Durbs, but I'm probably wrong) where I think anyone could post pictures.. anyone now where it is?

Posted:Glowworm it works for me but i have a hotmail account. you might need to sigh up for msn passport thingy go to http://communities.msn.com
and see if you need to sign up for passport wich allows you to log on to the communities with any email address you choose not just a hotmail or msn account. but when you do that if you do that join the community much like the way you joined this one and then it will allow you to upload as much as 3mb worth of pictures or whatever and this space is allocated to all who join. its not my community though and i hope durbs doesnt mind me posting all of this but it was an open community and when i have some pics i plan to post them there. anyway if you tell me what happens when you click on the link above it might give me a better idea of what you need to do.L8RSoular------------------And beauty is not a need but an ecstasy.

Posted:As to your embedding and posting questions, dibs & glow: If your into hard coding, images are embedded in hyper text files (HTML) using tags. Tags are enclosed in angle braces (< and > ). They consist of a opening tag and a closing tag. For example, centering an object or text field would be surrounded by "center" tags, <center>Text to center...</center> In the same way, image embedding is acomplished with IMG tags, save that they specify parameters, such as location of image, height, width. Since all the parameters are contained within the first set of angle braces, they do not generally require end tags. For example,<IMG height=200 src="C:\divider2.gif" width=300> for a local image. Links follow much the same syntax. They use the A tag,<A HREF="http://www.homeofpoi.com>Link Text </A> This is all, BTW, HTML coding, not UBB coding. This is just in case you are wondering how to hard code images into a website so you can link to them using the forum's UBB code. If you're not into hard HTML coding, and not too many people are (precious few programmers even), I would recommend Macromedia's DreamWeaver4. It's the best graphical interface I've ever worked with, as it's very thorough but not too hard to use. They have a full version out that you can try for 30 days if you want to throw something together. As to where to post, America Online members get free web space which I've never had problems linking to. A lot of campus servers allot their students some web space. Can't help you out with linking to objects on free servers; some of them may link OK, some of them may not. Just try it, and if it dosen't work, try another one
