    Actually it's a bit too tall. The rule is:
    Signature (300 chars Max. 3 lines at most. Graphics no taller than 38).

    Re: Easy Sigs

    OK another redhead question. I know you save our graphics here in the lounge for us or I never would have the neat sig and user pic I do. But If I want to use a sig or pic somewhere else it tells me it must be saved to the net first. Question is Where do I save to the net? Do I have to buy a domain to do that? My ISP says I have a few mg of Personal Memory. Is that probably just for the email or can I possibly save there? I have an email to them asking but no answer yet the lounge is faster.

    A redhead question? I like redheads, so let me answer first!

    You would need a publicly accessible web location - but do you have to buy a domain? Probably not. Although the numbers are shrinking these days there are free hosts to be found, and many ISPs will give you around 5MB space for a personal website.

    When you say you have a few mg of "Personal Memory" I'm not sure what you are referring to, but it is possibly for email retention. Check with the ISP first - asdk them if you have web space or some such. Once you find out where your homepage is, upload the image(s) there and reference them from wherever you want.

    A final thought - every time that graphic is referenced somewhere on the net, you're using a little bandwidth. Use enough of that, and you get a bill in your mailbox (and not the e-mailbox either). It would take a ton of clicks to chew up something noticeable with the signatures that we use here in the Lounge - so try not to use streaming video in your signature! <img src=/S/laugh.gif border=0 alt=laugh width=15 height=15>

    Ya know, Eileen, this is not the proper thread for "sucking up," but I'm gonna do it anyway! I really appreciate your courteous guidance AND reply!

    The Lounge is the ONE place on the 'Net where I don't see any "flaming" going on and all post'ers are treated with courtesy and respect, by fellow loungers, the Mods and you "management" folks! Even when one (like me) makes a mistake and needs guidance and correction, it's done with dignity and I for one, feel safe in coming here for help.

    Thanks to ALL!

    Tx WyllyWylly.

    I will have to contemplate that for a while. Also see what my ISP has to say, he was real helpful before he got my money.

    Some dumb blondes didn't get the fun of being a blonde. Hence the dumb redhead questions.

    Re: Easy Sigs

    Rats, I thought this thread was about "Easy SINS" and I thought, gotta read this one!

    But seriously, even though I'm a greyhead, I'm in a similar boat to BookBox, in that the bride and I have 50 MB of web space with our ISP, of which we are using 0.3MB! I'd like to get better use of this space as far as a place to leave pix of the kids & grandkid, etc, but have no what I can do, and no clue how to set it up. Our ISP Help files are kind of technical and don't tell me the basics like "How to post files that people can access from the web". I don't want to set up a home page, but I would like to set up a File directory for downloading.

    Can you point me to a 'net good primer for Dummies with no understanding of FTP, Shell Accounts, etc., preferably here on the Lounge. Or if you have time, explain some 'o this to us?

    John, looks to me like you DO need a "home page" as you called it. One way or 'tuther you're gonna be forced to learn a little about HTML. Even though that's a very deep bucket, I learned most of what (little) I do know by right-clicking on web pages and looking at the source code for a page. While you're there, you can copy-paste up your own pages using someone else's code as a learning tool.

    I admit that one has to be careful about copyright violations, but if you're looking for sample HTML, there's not too much liklihood you'd be stepping on anyone's t-copyright toes. Anyone else agree with me?

    Creating (typing) HTML just requires a fairly decent editor and we all know you COULD use something you already have, like Notepad or whatever.

    For starters, my web site is purely personal and mostly pictures, so why don't you go do a little right-clicking and see what you think?

    Come on back to this thread and all of us can suggest HTML editors, FTP software or whatever.
