Uploading pictures

Have an idea for the web site?

Some forums have a facility to upload pictures straight from a hard drive, rather than linking them to a website.

Couldn't we have that feature on these forums?

The main SC page is a mess with dead links and no picture updates for a year now. I don't think this place has the web space for pictures or anyone to maintain them anyway. I wish someone with time and smarts would revamp the whole thing so we *could* post pictures. But I venture to say that cows will fly before that happens.

Hi Jeff,

Is it really volunteers or Hard Disk Drive space. The reason for this question is that at my work at NCR Corporation we use many gigabytes of RAID drive space for POS Terminal and Self Check-Out diag files. BMPs and GIFs for pictures can easily add up to many Gigabytes very rapidly....

Regards,

Hi Don,

Yea, it's volunteers. With our current web hosting provider, space is not nearly the premium/restriction that it used to be.

The volunteer(s) will need to preview and insert/manage the photo pages.

Hi Jeff,

Just tried to send you an e-mail, but it was returned as undeliverable. Drop me a note please.
