Wads,
Your question about computer security is not a dumb one. You should always be concerned.
I recommend:
* Make sure you always have the latest Windows Updates installed that involve security.
* Enable your Windows XP Firewall or install a Norton, McAfee or other good firewall.
* Set your Internet Explorer security settings concerning Active-X Controls to Prompt or if that is not a choice to Disable. When you get a pop-up asking if you want to approve an Active-X Control, you need to decide if you trust the site you are on. Many sites use safe scripting, including Oldgas.com to enable helpful features. But unscrupulous sites can snoop and plant bad things. You should know when somebody is running such a script and be able to decide even though the pop-up prompts are a pain.

Image Shack runs a script that enables Google context sensitive ads. That is how they make their money to pay for the free image hosting. It is harmless. Oldgas.com uses the same type of scripting to run the real-time eBay listings and Google ads on our site with no risk at all for users.

DOC, That's it, I'm staying up all night to take pictures (LOL)!! Signs, cans, maps, paper items, globes, bottle racks, blotters.
Finally, I can stop bothering people to post pictures for me. Now I need a BOTW so I can post it myself. Thanks to all those that posted for me in the past.

Hey Jim, just wondering if these photos posted through this new listing server, will still be available for viewing in say 6months? I noticed that sometimes when I go back looking at a post, some of the images have dissapeared. Hubba's are some of the ones that I've noticed. I thought this was caused by the hosting server not retaining them for a long period of time. Any ideas?

Won't this be cool! (if it works) I never post any pics because I never want to bother anyone to post them for me.
If this works it is a picture of the Seattle Express... my new truck (gift to myself after I sold the pool store) and the trailer I bought from Dave Bowman for the move.

Don,
The documentation on their site says they watch the number of times an image is viewed. They promise to keep an image on their server for one year after the last time it is viewed. So if the image is viewed once after 11 months, it gets another year of hosting, at least.

How long will the site last? They depend on earning income from the Google ads on their site. Hopefully that will earn enough to keep it going. I'd expect ImageShack to develop other income producing business in the future. Not to mention the site is based in St. Louis, Missouri where all the sharpest nerds hang out. lol

Did someone say this is idiot-proof? I can prove/disprove that theory right now.....

Well, I guess it's ALMOST idiot-proof. It's really only a small 3" hand mirror....not the mirror that ate Cleveland!!!. Guess checking the image size is a good idea also...........
