    So was that you on the S10 that I saw on my ride home last week on FCPkwy, Hooes, and 123?

    Most likely. The traffic that day was hosed on the main lanes. Where you caged or on two wheels?

    I was behind you (most of the time) on my XChallenge. I jumped off 123 at Hampton to head over to PW County.

    Been watching this for a while and finally saw someplace that I recognized! Can't believe Ali was still there, he was not happy about the cold weather. Buffalo Wild wings 5413 Wellington RD, Gainesville.

    As this is my first attempt at posting PICS I hope this comes out ok, I just set up my photobucket account today. By the way sorry if some of the pics are sideways, I could not figure out how to rotate them in photobucket.

    During our discussion he said that he felt the need to improve himself, and I suggested that a little education was not a bad thing. As I was about to place him in the pannier he began to protest and stated that as he had been out in the freezing cold all night and it was now only 31 degrees the pannier would not help him warm up. He then said he had noticed my Hippo hands and thought that a ride inside them with the heated grips on would probably do him wonders. I complied as it was a little chilly out, and off we went.

    While trying to think of a suitable environment for his education I figured who better to learn from than some Pioneers and of course they should be Patriots also!! So here is the destination,

    Well, the pics did not come through. I followed the "how to post an image" post directions. Any ideas? Sorry :huh

    Glad to have you, rebel346!

    Your images are unviewable on my computer screen, however.

    Viewable images, in my experience, are available when one places one's cursor on the "IMG" line under one's images on the Photobucket album, and presses mouse left click. This action automatically copies the IMG code of the image; then, to post the image on the website, one places the cursor on the draft post, right-clicks, and then highlights "PASTE" from the pull-down menu that appears.

    The URL for that particular image is then imbedded in the text of the post; when the post is submitted, the image will appear on the website.

    An image can be rotated by using the "EDIT" function on Photobucket; run your cursor along an image on your album, and a little menu line will show some choices; put the curson on "EDIT" and hit mouse left click. Your "ADJUSTMENT" option allows you to right your image.

    Looking forward to your images; if you want me to post them for you, PM me and we'll exchange e-mail addresses; you can send me .jpg files and I can convert them into website-legible pictures.

    Fastest option, rebel, to facilitate Tag-o-rama active play time this weekend; PM me for e-mail address exchange and your forwarding of .jpg file images to me.

    I'll post 'em for you, and for the convenience of the other players.

    You can figure out how to post images yourself at your own pace later.

    DANG IT!!!!!!!!!!!! Cox e-mail is DOWN, market-wide!

    Maybe some inmate on Verizon, or another more reliable ISP, will do the honors!

    Anyone?

    After you EDIT (i.e., rotate) your image (and APPLY the change), you must the SAVE the edited copy . . . I have more success with, "SAVE AS COPY" than SAVE AND REPLACE," then, post the saved copy.

    After you make the copy vs. replace decision, you must click on the big SAVE button at the bottom of the screen, as I recall.

    Please check your PM's (Personal Messages).

    Or . . . just post 'em sideways. If we can't figure 'em out, someone can right 'em and re-post

    I've had this happen with PB also. The only way I could fix it was to delete the pics and start over, making sure I edited before posting the IMG link.

    My inability to see the images may be the result of my own cockpit trouble!

    Used "Chrome" browser, vs. moldy oldy Windows model, and . . . there they were!

    Now, I'll try to post 'em:
