    click on go advanced then manage attachments, in the new box browse for the file followed by add this file followed by all done!

    And then you get a weenie thumbnail! (give me 2 mins to work it out!)
    Ok seems like Rob wants it this way for the moment (but how does markpdx do it html?)

    Thinking about it I liked the other system much better. This is a lot more work It's slower, takes much more time and requires off site if you don't wan't thumbnails. Unless it's changed back posting pic's ain't worth it to me. I may switch to another site that uses the old system to post pics.

    I wish you could get the pic to attach too, I'd love to see it. Any time estimate on completion??? Is it up at WWoC? I was there today to get a belt, but looking out in the service bay I didn't see it, just an enzo.

    Hahahaha!! Awesome. Only when talking about Jim's car could someone genuinely say "just an enzo"!

    When I make my Ferrari pilgrimage it will not be to Maranello, but wherever Jim's car is at the time. Provided it's owners generosity to share at the time of course.

    Don't you just hate it when hobbies turn into work and everything becomes austere and serious?

    I'm here in Houston currently pursuing a hobby and even though I put up with heat and humidity it puts a big smile on my face. Trying to figure out how to post a picture is entirely something else.

    Have pity on a young enthusiast and don't post them in thumbnails please. I'll go blind trying to look at the detail in those tiny pics! Strangely, I do feel its worth it though... :)

    Cheers

    Jim,

    If you are still hanging in here on this site ... but intend to go elsewhere could you please send me an email where you intend to post pictures of the completion stages of your P4. Actually I'll email you as well ... just incase you have already left.

    I actually cannot understand why Rob has done this. He let stupid byte wasting threads like the 'Ferrari bikini' thread comsume his disk and now he has forced everybody to host the picture somewhere else (?) .... maybe the stupid bikini thread caused that (?).

    Anyway, like other forums, Rob will loose many posters because of this, as it is just too much hard work for a pop in and have a chat concept ... which a forum is supposed to be (like was said above, it is not supposed to be hard work).

    Come on Rob, lets keep this site relaxed and fun :)

    Pete
    ps: Nothing lasts forever I guess :(

    Pete,

    I think has become apparent that the problems were deeper rooted than initially thought. This "new software", oft touted as the panacea of all FChat shortcomings has proven to do more harm than good. The Gary Greens and the Tony Panteras be it the same person or otherwise, were never the problem.

    My personal opinion on the matter is that even if the picture functionality is fixed this community will never be the same. The fervor is all but gone.

    Oh by the way, Alfa Romeos ceased to be good cars with the demise of the Tubolare Zagatos and Tipo 33 Stradales! Hehehe...how's that for some fervor! Your thoughts? (disclaimer: lame attempt at humor, in case you took it as a jab at you with bad intentions...you had previously mentioned you had an Alfa right?)

    Cheers

    Actually the new software I think is doing okay other than the pictures. But I do agree that the Gary Green issue was blown out of proportion ... but what really caused the problem was the stupidly imature fight over whether he really owned a Ferrari or not ... who fncken cares.

    Change always causes problems ... but if you stick with it for a little while it gets better. I even today have found it better after a couple of hours perusing (sp?).

    Now lets talk Alfa Romeos :)

    While I can see what you are saying, I think that as long as the heart of an Alfa Romeo still has the same incredients then I'll still be a follower. Now there have been periods where they strayed a little too far, but currently their models are okay, but it is a pity they are FWD.

    Even Ferrari has had bad models ... and so have Alfa, but most Alfas I have driven are atleast fun to drive, and you find yourself blipping on the down shifts ...

    I have heard very strong rumours that Alfa Romeo are going to use a platform GM v6 engine soon ... and I think that is going to far.


    Hang in here and you will find that this forum is just the same as the old, just different, because it is the people that make the forum not how we have to post, etc.
    Pete
