I tried dragging the image to a new tab, but it just loaded some hp page. So, what's the image? Or, maybe, what's the issue with the image?

Nah... it won't work, Nes. Thanks for the effort though. I think the links are dynamically generated and last for a 30 minute session. Moon responded after about 5 hours so the link was probably long gone.

If you ever buy an HP digital camera (which I did a couple of years ago - it lasted precisely 12 months and 2 weeks... 2 weeks out of warranty) you can register for an account at http://www.hpphoto.com, a site which allows you to hold your images online, in several formats, or to tinker with the images, or make albums and, significantly, share your photos with your friends and family. The idea is that you send someone an invitation to view a picture or pictures and they can follow a link.... just like in those online greetings cards. I never thought about using it to host images for web pages until yesterday. It seems HP thought of it some time ago. :lol:
It's a pity... theres a gig of space in that account. :(

Well, my current camera is a Canon Powershot and I have no complaints whatsoever. It's the bees knees and the dogs bollox, as you prefer.
Returning to the point about photo hosting sites and what-not. I heartily recommend http://www.flickr.com where I now have hundreds of photos lurking. Oh yeah, and that little 'szlured' link in my sig is to a blogspot blog featuring a few of my photos (I only started the blog recently) which are actually hosted on flickr.

Your Dragonfly reminded me of this photomicrograph...
Nikon's Small World Competition 2005, won by Charles Krebs.

How can I be cool... I don't make enough money to replug all good stuff in my pathetic life, such as a working internet-connection, or gas... :shaking:
Just made another monthly cartoon, for free :eye:
I won't be able to buy a Sony Playstation Portable in the next 4 months [-o<
Enough with these emoticons now...

Oh, wow, I'm cool. More of this stuff :cheers: :cheers: :cheers:
