Loadie: You won't need a parachute. Derek and Clive are down there holding a blanket, and you will be OK.

Jumper: WHAT!

Talking Aaaand... We Have a Winner!

The Drop Zone resounds with laughter; there’s more silk blowing around than Frederick’s of Hollywood after an earthquake. An admirable and worthy round by all contestants makes a final decision quite difficult. Because our relationship is a democracy (I get to vote until I get it right), I called on my Bride to assist. In a rare moment of total agreement, she and I decided as follows:

A most-Honorable Mention Reserve ‘Chute to Last Minute Entry Pontius Navigator for: “Hey guys, I won't have the curry again!” (With a Braaaappp, the ‘chutist was on his way to low Earth orbit...)

The Bronze D-Ring to Shy Torque for: "Best trampoline I've ever been on!" OINGO BOINGO!

The Silver T-28 Riser goes to Hydromet with: “Private Kent, I think we've worked out your real identity.” No Kryptonite was involved in the making of this caption...

Yet this round’s Golden Coffman Starter Trophy belongs to a man who understands the inexorable intersection of marital “misunderstandings” and brevity being the soul of wit. DRUM ROLL and FLOURISHES for: “I hear you have been having sex with my wife....said the parachute packer...” compliments of Kiltrash.


Well done, sir! The trophy is on its way under drogue to your location; don’t let it hit you in the head before you start a new round!

Many Thanks and look forward to the delivery

My next caption would have been

'Wish they would make up their mind where I have to deliver the CST next, it has more AirMiles than that Simon Calder'

Anyhow in deference to ShyTorque who missed out on posting a picture due to'Tardy' if you have sorted allowance to post piccy please can you take the honour? post picture and judge ?

Thanks

Cool Somebody Turn On The Lights!

Nurse: Doctor, there is an invisible man in your waiting room.

Doctor: Tell him I can't see him. Next.

Not just me having "technical issues" with photos, I see (or don't see)... Anything I try to post results in a "image too large" fault.

Can't help with the sticking Coffman Starter right now but I'm told there is a new photo posting section to the software in about a month or so to be rolled out on the site.

Meantime, don't forget you all have a photo hosting library of your own if you explore the yellow bar at the top of every page. System likes 800 pixels on longest edge for its diet.

Rob,
have you changed the image posting setting as well? because it is all screwed up, when you post an image from Flickr instead of simply posting an image it links to your whole album.

Aviation and History forum went through a recent plague just as you are reporting. I'll fire it off to the boffins in Californiay and in the meantime someone will come up with some etchings.

Rob

PS: For todays effort were you posting a coded link to somewhere like Photobucket or placing a link to a file living on your respective computers?

California reports the source code for this final page doesn't include a recognisable image within the attachment command guys.

Kiltrash/Shy Torgue: Can you send me the image you are trying to post so I can check it? Can you also let me know which browser you were trying to use respectively?

Address is included at the end of this post.

***Just a test***
(Anyway, there's really only one caption for this...) This one is 1600 x 1085...seems ok.

This is what you get Rob, it's almost as if its using the you Tube linking instead. Thats using the BB code off flicker, I also get tandem posts off it, though its a single image post as shown below, and clicking on it cycles through the images...

Oh...if I had a dollar for every time I've been asked that.....

I'd have $1.75.

Well, I was curious if a) it would take the large image & b) if I could reduce it...which I couldn't.
