They who are responsible for this have had a talking to by Reb, and it's being looked into. Probably with a lot of tutting and in-drawing of breath through teeth...

Is it a known domain? I often get emails with X@domain.com where X is a set of progressing letters such as steeljam, steeljar, steeljay ...

I have noticed when somebody links in picture (e.g. the excellent haloween costume ones) when I click on "read first unread, it does not go to the actual post but only jumps to a random point in the piccies

I've seen this before - it looks to me like if the pics load slower than the page does, then they take the focus. It's a browser thing rather than a board one.

Hi all - am trying to include a photo in a post, but when I try to attach the file I get the error message "Sorry, the board attachment quota has been reached." I don't have a Flickr account, so does anyone know how else to include a photo or be willing to upload a small jpeg photo file to their Flickr account and send me the link? Thank you muchly! :wink:
