Something is definitely wrong here with all those picture links ...
To fix mine, I had to edit my post, completely remove the link and then reinsert the picture link using the picture icon. Just changing the URL wasn't enough.
I suspect a bug in the vBulletin software that caused a corruption in the links (or in the cache -- I'm not sure how vBulletin works). This has all the earmarks of a buffer overrun or something.
This all happened after a very large pic was posted. This is through no fault of the poster -- the software should have compensated. Changing the link to that pic was not enough to "fix" things either -- the damage had already been done. That's my theory anyway.
Following noobette's URL (when opening the post in edit mode I can see it), I get a messsage indicating the picture is blocked for viewing.
DTM's picture now shows visible within the thread (for me) after having put the URL standalone in a new tab.
Very funny indeed ...
<phew> I thought I was going blind....
So what number are we on? Or should I go back to 40 (this is getting even more like pictorial snakes and ladders).
Are you saying you had trouble seeing the picture in my post #61 (that is, the "40" picture)? Because it worked fine for me from the beginning.
Curiouser and curiouser!
Yes that was the problem but don't forget you already had the picture in cache since you have been looking for it.
be strong, 8 days!
this whole picture thing would probably not have happened if the servers weren't running Windows®3.11...
Are you sure they're not running Windows Mobile?
