    Use them, but use a service like Dropbox or Copy to save them to, then grab the public lunk and paste it in. In other words host it yourself :)

    It was just complaining about the site hosting the image, I would believe you are clean!

    Well AvatarAcid,
    This last year has been my first encounter with Asian computers.
    I can say that ever since Thailand declared Martial Law, that every computer in Thailand that visits an outside of Thailand site is having some strange delays. I have 5 other friends here who do not share but lettered e-mail and they all began rattling about the delays last night. The TV stations even mentioned some restrictions to outside communications in English. I think there is up to 3-4 TV stations off the air now and a few with all the updates. There's nothing bad happening here, but, security is very high and I'm sure cyber-security measures are included. As a whole, the place is safe with nothing happening except some needed elections to take place. The mobs of 10,000s-100,000 people in Bangkok have been as peaceful as a common happy parade, with the TV stations some running mob coverage 24 hours a day, till yesterday.
    Many Thai's use meme, yet I'm still cutting off. I'd just hate to think that any frilly posts would be a danger to others. So, it's better safe than sorry for me ;)
    ~Time Lord~:rolleyes:

    @Time Lord - you are an important asset to this community in many ways. I feel for you with the unrest going on over there; just make sure you take care and stay safe.

    I don't want to visit the page haha. I know it was a mistake, Time Lord - perhaps you could edit the post?

    Does @Time Lord work when there's a space? Quoting to send the Alert :)

    Interestingly, I am not getting that error when viewing that page in Chrome. Is it a certain extension that you are running?

    I get the warning at home as well as work.

    Both are vanilla installs of Chrome as far as I know. :)

    (Edit: Lum has since cleared up the issue)

    Lums deserves a cookie.

    Edit: The delicious kind made with flour and sugar and butter, not the nasty kind that tracks your shopping habits and spams your face with "Recommended for you!" adverts.
