    Image Hosting Poll

    I can't be the only one who's bugged by not being able to see an image another member has hotlinked. Some images get blocked at work and others don't.

    Take the poll and select all the images that appear on your monitor.

    1. Imageshack

    2. paintedover

    3. imgfly

    4. tinypic


    5. imageshosted

    6. simpleload


    If someone knows of any other free image hosting services not requiring registration please feel free to start a similar poll to see how many of images appear to your fellow Cyburbians.
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    As a Notre Dame fan, I have been conditioned not to recognize any that is NOT ligit.

    BTW, I can see all of them.
    You get all squeezed up inside/Like the days were carved in stone/You get all wired up inside/And it's bad to be alone

    You can go out, you can take a ride/And when you get out on your own/You get all smoothed out inside/And it's good to be alone

    Umm... I don't think it worked. I just see a pile of $**t on the screen.

    In reality, I see all of them other than #2

    I see #1, #2, and #6.

    #2 is very badly compressed.

    2 & 3 appear to have some compression issues, but I saw all of them.

    "Oh, that is all well and good, but, voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country."

    Ditto here.
    "We do not need any other Tutankhamun's tomb with all its treasures. We need context. We need understanding. We need knowledge of historical events to tie them together. We don't know much. Of course we know a lot, but it is context that's missing, not treasures." - Werner Herzog, in Archaeology, March/April 2011

    I can see them all at work except #1. They all come through at home. Wonder how long until the IT department there starts blocking hosting services

    I can see them all....yeah for me....what's my prize?
    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    The ends can justify the means.

    #2, 3 and 4 are pixelated, but I can see them all and 1 is crisp.

    At least you didn't use the Damnyankees logo for this test.
