Wassa 'hotlink'?
Sorry, I didn't realise putting pictures in was bad? Frown


hotlinking, as explained in the faq I linked you (when a word is underlined it's often a link to another page) to is linking to pictures from other peoples websites, it is bad because it uses up their bandwidth. Frown

as explained in the faq what you need to do is download the pic, upload it into a picture hosting site e.g. photobucket or flickr and *then* link to it, this is not bad. Smile

I made about 3 no-no's in that post. :/

Jack Torrence is the antagonist of The Shining, Jack Johnson a singer (disqualified for existing), and Jack Cox is the son of Dr. Cox, from Scrubs. Smile

Aww, there there. Have a shiny bauble to play with while you wait... *hands Alex a pretty Venetian glass decoration*

I nominate Jack Frost- but not the one who draws pretty fernleaf patterns on windows, nor the one from Mr. Gaiman's book...this one is the detective from the British series 'A Touch of Frost', portrayed by David Jason Smile
