    Here I am with Benjamin Franklin. Also I'm here firing a cannon at St. Pedro, Cayman Islands, and this is me and my wife playing with the stingrays. :)

    Not everyone who plays with stingrays lives to tell the tale.

    Yes, Steve Irwin - Rest In Peace.

    By the way, these animals are really intelligent - it's a wierd feeling to have them slither over your torso or arms. We had some squid that we fed them - they sucked it out of my hand like a vacuum cleaner. Just do not step on them or you will be really sorry! :)

    Great photograph, Ryan. Looks like you've got some future firewood cutters with you.

    Hey Thanxs

    Question, how do I get the pic to be posted on the screen? instead of gong to my photobucket account. I know I need to use a code on either side, what is it?

    For some reason, you have to reply to the post, put in some text and post the reply. Then go in and edit the post, and use the "browse" button at the bottom of the screen. I don't know why there's no way to attach photos to unedited posts, but that's the way it works on my computers.

    Based on the pics it seems the group on average looks like they are in pretty good health. Wondering if heating with wood keeps you in better shape?

    The picture option is not available for "Fast Reply" (that's why it's fast), but it's there for "Post Reply", which is the long form. That's also where options like spell check reside.

    BG I do know what ya are talkin about, but I cannot find it here, I see bold, italic, underline, quote, code, @, <a> and Close Tags, thats all though and at the bottom is spell check, I see NO IMG, or image or anything like that to use? And the attachments won't work for me?

    Can you explain a bit more if you know how it works?

    If you use the regular "post reply" screen, at the bottom of the screen, just above the "Preview Post" and "Submit Post" buttons you will see a little box that says "Attachements" and has a button "Choose..." next to it.

    You need to know the name and location of the file on your machine, and I believe the file has to have the appropriate filetype suffix on it in order for the system to recognize what it is. Hit the choose button, and it will open up a window with your file manager, which should allow you to navigate to the desired file. When you select the file, it's name should appear in the Attachments box.

    If you only have one picture, just hit "submit post" and the picture will upload and get posted automatically. If you have multiple pictures, hit the "Preview Post" button, and you will see your post as it will appear, including the picture. If you then go to the bottom of the editing window, you can add another picture the same way, repeating as needed for each additional picture. Once you have added all the pictures be sure to hit the "Submit Post" button to actually post your message or all will be lost!

    Note that there is a 250KB size limit on the pictures, I think this is total per post, not per picture. Use your favorite photo editor to crop and / or reduce the resolution on the photos as needed to get them down to a reasonable size, or use multiple messages to post one photo per message.

    (At least this is how it works for me using Opera under Linux, I don't know what those wierd proprietary O/S's do...)
