    Great stuff! I've see it before - any idea where that might have been?

      I've seen it before, too, and I thought it was in the Gallery. I had a quick scout round and couldn't spot it. I had it on my pc, so I've put it in Limbo
      [link expired].
      'Fraid I don't know where it will end up, though!

          Top stuff. All I see in the post above is a little box with a red X in it, but the gallery link revealed the goodies! Ta.

              That was my post BTW. That'll teach me to use multiple browsers!

                I don't know what made me put the link in my post when everyone (so I thought) could see the picture above. Vanity, I guess. Glad it was an aid to someone, Dee. :)

                  I have the same problem as Dee - in IE on Windows. Firefox on Windows just shows the word "Image" but no image.

                  :?

                  The HTML looks OK...

                  Code:
                  [img]http://www.digitalmedusa.com/sgettis/simonson.gif[/img]
                  And the pic at thet URL displays OK.

                  Trying again...

                  Now that one I can see.

                  :? :? :?

                  The HTML looks... well, the same.
                  Code:
                  [img]http://www.digitalmedusa.com/sgettis/simonson.gif[/img]
                  Weird...

                  Ciao,

                  Edit: Agh. Now I can see it in the original post too... :? :? :? :? :?

                    Well, I can't see nuttin' either with IE or Firefox both in Windows. :?

                    In IE6.0.29 I'm just getting a X in a box and in Firefox 1.0.4 I'm just seeing a broken image icon.

                    But if I go to http://www.digitalmedusa.com/sgettis/simonson.gif I see the image perfectly in both.

                    Strange thing is, if I insert the URL between [img] tags, it displays fine:

                    [img][/img] < Image removed - see EDIT below.

                    Ho hum.

                    Neat drawing though. ;)

                    EDIT: Interestingly, the moment I added the URL in my post and submitted it I could see the image in both Typhoid_Mary's and Ant's posts. I've just removed the URL and now I don't see the.GIF but I do see the space where the GIF should go.

                    Looks like, as long as the image in my cache it displays in the earlier posts.

                    EDIT: Okay there must be a Chaos leakage near my PC, because if I hit F5 the GIF appears but if I hit F5 a second time it disappears. 8O

                      Looks like someone removed the original or all the bandwidth was used up. If it's okay to get a copy and post it, I'll host it. (Send a copy to my e-mail if you have one, 'kay?)

                        Consider it done, Miqque.
