  1. Hey Dude.  How are you?  Are you still in the Metuchen / Philadelphia region?

    I just left a post here on the Forum I'd like you to read please.  Titled: "Molting issue" under main topic Health Issues.

    Did Rutgers Entomology have another science day like last year (I wear that T shirt a lot).

    Cheers -- Digger

  7. New macro video and photos questions

    Terry, I tried the "image" button using a current version of the IE 11 browser. Sure enough, the same crash occurs with me. I suspect it is a java or javascript problem with IE 11.
  8. New macro video and photos questions

    Hi Terry, I never used the "My Media" button before. So I thought I'd try it here. What this function does is simply let you choose a picture that you have previously posted somewhere on the Mantidforum. It posts here and, when clicked, takes you to the original post in the Mantidforum. This isn't really what you're looking to do - since you are yet unable to get an original post up on the site. Your OS shouldn't make any difference (8.1). It's possible your browser is causing a glitch, but I rather doubt it. Lots of other people on the board probably use the same IE version (I use Firefox). Your "lockup" description above did get my attention. 'Means your browser is crashing when you click on the green square ("image" button). That's a browser problem, sometimes caused by a plugin for the browser. If you have a "Pop-Up" Blocker turned on for your browser, try turning it off and them clicking the image button again. If you have another browser available on your computer (Firefox, Chrome, Opera), try one of those instead. I'll try an upload with my IE 11 to see if I can replicate your problem.
  9. New macro video and photos questions

    Hi Terry. Yes, this process can be frustrating! I read your note above, but unfortunately, can't quite get the picture (as it were) of your dilemma. I manage my own web servers. The process to get my images to load onto these pages is to load the image from my local PC over to the server (just like you would do uploading to Photobucket). I then copy the complete URL where the image is residing, to the "image" address pop-up window on the topic window (where you would be reading this now if you were creating a new post). The image button would be just above these sentences, on the second tool bar and it looks like a little green square window. Click on that little icon. A window will open that says "Image Properties," and there is a box in which you paste the complete URL. By "complete" I mean: http://www.terrypictures.com My files are in sub-directories and look like: http://www/nounpix.com/mantids/prettymantids.jpg This explanation may look daunting, but once you complete the procedure you'll see it only takes a few seconds. I do not use Photobucket and thus don't know the nuances and idiosyncrasies of that application. But others on the board use it. Try my method and see if it works for you! The picture here is found at: http://www.nounpix.com/mantids/sebastian_L6.JPG%C2'> So I just paste that (complete) URL into the "Image Properties" pop up box and voila! As you probably know, you must have the image file on an outside web server. The board can't "see" files on your local computer (C:\images\prettymantids.jpg) .
  10. Happy birthday.

    Aura's a great name, CD. If she's accepting crickets, keep those coming. Sounds like she's outgrown Hydei. Remember - let her go onto your hand under her own decision. She'll like the warmth once she's there! Have fun and learn from her!
