    I'm trying to add a picture to my signature, and even though I've checked the picture's url, and the ubb code is all correct, it won't come up: there's just a box with a cross in it. Why?

    I saw someone mention a while ago that images on Geocities sites can't be included in-line on other sites. Not sure if that's correct or not but it would explain the problem.

    Yes, that's correct. The only way to get the images to show up from Geocities is to highlight the URL location in the browser and hit "enter".

    Damn! That sucks. So how can I display an image, without registering for a new web space?

    Paul, I believe you can ask one of the administrators to put your image on the HTF web space.

    Send it to Parker, he'll sort it out.
