Xotus, here's a thread a new guy just posted about cracks on his Storz/BUB pipes, no solution yet but maybe somebody will have something.

Tom, I appreciate your letting me know about the new thread concerning the BUB's crack issue. I'll definitely subscribe to the thread ... and, maybe save myself some grief down the road. Thanks.

Default I'm going to try to post some photos using Flickr & Facebook as Hosts

For some reason my pictures have started to (one-by-one) disappear from my thread.

I've been in touch with XLF Admin and was told that it's not a good idea to use Facebook to host my photos.

So, I'm going to give Flickr.com a try and see if it works better.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Here goes an attempt to post a Flickr photo using the "insert image" tool bar icon:



NOTE: THIS OBVIOUSLY DIDN'T WORK!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Here goes an attempt to post a Flickr photo using the "insert link" tool bar icon:

https://www.flickr.com/photos/150498...posted-public/

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Here goes an attempt to re-post a Facebook photo using the "insert image" tool bar icon:



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Here goes an attempt to post a Facebook photo using the "insert link" tool bar icon:

https://scontent-atl3-1.xx.fbcdn.net...26&oe=59C0B65F

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

P.S. If anyone out there has experience using Facebook and/or Flickr to host photos on the XLForum, I'd appreciate any guidance you could offer on how to insert a photo inline in a XLF thread, so it stays put. Thanks.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
