Try photobucket Chris.

I used to have that but then I stopped using it for ages and went back to it the other day but couldn't remember my password  :bang-head:

imageshack needs none, that's good for a few photos. if not picasa web albums or something.

How do I get on and use imageshack pawan?

I think when I get some time I'll try all of these that you guys have been firing down to see which ones the best.

When you post a message, just below the text box is an area that is for posting pictures. Just click the browse button, look for the picture you want to post, and click the "host it!" button. You will get a new window that gives you a bunch of links. To post the picture in the post itself go all the way to the bottom of the new Imageshack window, copy the link to the picture and past in the post box. Or you can post the Imageshack link to the page where it's hosted.
That is worthwhile for a couple pictures. To get them all up is a little more involved.

Thanks Dmas I'll give that a shot as well. When I'm on the new window image shack page what link do I use because at the bottom there's 5 different link and I'm not sure which is the best one to use?

Ignore all these:


Use this one at the bottom:


Just copy the link text in the box and paste it into the message form. On thing about Imageshack, I don't know long the image will remain. I've seen them disappear after a couple weeks.

Pete on FED:

"What he's doing, and how he's doing it, I respect," Sampras said. "Every fan, every media person, has a different sort of athlete (they respect) and he's my sort of guy. He's not brash, he's not abrasive. He lets his racket do the talking. I don't think that's a negative. To hear someone say he's boring, I'm tired of hearing that (stuff). It's nauseating. Just respect what he's doing."   :whistle: :whistle: :whistle: :whistle:

Sampras knows all about that. When he was on top of the tennis world they said he was boring too.  ..-)
They equate boring as not breaking racquets, fueding with people, or getting into trouble with the law. They equate boring winning too much.
I'll take boring in that case.

In cases like Pete and Roger boring is interesting  ;-() You summed up why media feel the word 'boring' should be used. It's great to see and hear what a close frienship Pete and Roger are building up and how much respect they have for each other. There 2 of the only guys who are on the same wavelength in a tennis world, and know what one another experienced/ is experiencing.

Boring, def.
1. lacks drama
2. without suspense
3. outcome is a foregone conclusion


Aside from his 8 year stretch at Wimbledon (boring), Pete never won 95% of his matches over any span, let alone three consecutive years.

That was the very same question I was going to ask  :) Especially since all the top guys/girls have got to Melbourne and the talk about the surface seems to have decreased quite dramaticaly!

Well remember they modified the surfaces for this year on.... and they have new heat policy rules... so i don't expect as many complaints about the heat....

Yeah the new heat rule is going to help the players out much more and not put some players at a huge disadvantage for the rest of the event if they get unlucky on one day. Also the new surface won't get as sticky which is crucial for the players as there won't be half as many issues with ankle twists and sprains.
