like what farfrmnormal said pics aren't hosted on the server everyone hosts their own... the way the forum is coded with the
tags grabs the image from where its hosted (such as imageshack or photobucket) waists their bandwith but displays it on the forum itself... people who post excessive amounts of photos from their photobucket usually exceeds bandwith and it comes up with an exceeded bandwith message for all of pictures just as an FYI 8)
I know about the Img thing. I don't have many, if any, pics stores anywhere on the web. Got plenty on my hard drive, and can quickly resize any one of them. Can't bring myself to leave any on the web, blame my father I guess. He's a borderline professional photographer and guards his work carefully. He is very much against others using his pictures without his consent.
