I am afraid to anger the Possum, but

-Is this WOTW #25 of #26, just for search concerning.

-In one of my PCs the ForeFox is set to clear private data after closing the browser, so I am wondering if it is possible to use the click-able thumb code provided by PhotoBucket (this code links the thumbnail to the full image and don't download the image unless you click the thumb) instead of PDN Forum [thumb] code, so this will save our every time downloading the full size files from the hosting site, and then save the bandwidth of your account.

Just a thought and is good for going green ;)

Yes it's WOTW 26. I must have forgotten to change it on the template document. I seem to do that quite a bit. I think it has something to do with my advanced age. :D

As far as changing to the photobucket thumb instead of the forum thumb, I'll look into it to see if it makes any difference in the way I set up the comp. As to it being a "green" issue, with only 272 views of that thread, I think there would be a negligible energy savings for people using a PC. I'm running on my laptop battery right now, and often do, but even then don't think the drain on my battery would be significant. I have noticed that at times a Photobucket thumb link does load slower than the forum thumb link, so that might even cause a greater use of energy in some cases. In the bigger scheme of things, if I could get my wife to turn a light off in a room when she leaves it, I would see a greater energy savings than any change I make on this forum.

Oh, and this would not fall under the guidelines of special rule #5.

Congratulations everyone!

Possum, I hope you didn't catch my cold. Feel better.

So it was you ! :lol: No, I don't have a cold. I'm starting to feel better though.

Waiting on a theme from Welshblue. This will be the last round of the WOTW in it's current format. I have some changes coming that

I think everyone will enjoy. Just a little twist to keep things interesting. :D And that's all I'm gonna say about that. ;)
