From my reading here it appears the only way to do this is by having the pics posted somewhere like Flickr - can you just confirm that please, since I dont even have a flickr account - there no way it can post images from my own PC?

Thanks

The only way that I am aware of to embed photos, rather than attach them as you have been doing in your own posts, is to have them stored at a site such as Flickr, Photobucket, Kodak, etc. (or your own website if you have one.)

However, Flickr accounts are free for storing up to 200 photos.  There may also be similar sites in the UK also that I am not aware of.

If anyone else knows of a different way, please let JoMax know!

You could sign up for a FREE website here:

http://www.000webhost.com/

You get a big 1500 MB of Disk Space [GeoCities only allowed 15MB] and 100 GB / month Data Transfer. That is pretty good for a free account. They also have paid accounts that are very low cost too.

Also, everyone, please let others know about this free web space who had a free GeoCities/Yahoo! account that will expire on Oct 26th.

Hugs

I put my pics on Flickr and it's fairly easy once you go through it a few times.  It's free, you just have to register to use it.  I think it's associated with yahoo so if you have an account there, you use that for the Flickr account.

You did it!

Is that jar Marmite?  (I spent a little time in the UK and remember it--for someone from the US, it's hard to forget Grin.  It's something that not many people eat over here.)  I think you mentioned that Max used to share Marmite with your BF?

Thanks everyone - if I get time later I can  post some more pics of both him & Eppie.
(Next item will be getting a cheap scanner, cos I have some lovely photos of him as a kit (1990 - before digital cameras were born)

However term starts at 9am tomorrow so I need to get focussed - it'll be a hard semester for me.

Ah - the marmite.  Its something you love or hate - no in-between.  I hate it, b/f loves it.  So do most cats I've known.  I think it's the yeasty smell -  like mega-strong Kitzyme's (a condition tablet - dont know if you have them).  It's made from brewing yeast and contains folic acid & vitB12 - as felinecrf.org says this vitamin is thought to be helpful for CRF cats.  Although we always worried about the saltiness, but he loved it sooo much it was a quality of life thing - b/f always has a piece of marmite on toast at breakfast, and Max was usually to be found as close as possible waiting for his share - a little dab off Mark's finger. -

Here's another phone pic so not very good res again, but this is the marmite course!  (btw, it's also believed that (humans) eating marmite helps repel mosquitoes -b/f read somewhere the british army were given tons in Belize for that purpose)



Now the pic I posted before was in fact him sneaking onto the table when Mark went to the kitchen to get something - came back to find Max licking the foil cover of the cheese spread (they hadnt got to the marmite course at that point!)  So he took the pic on his phone & texted it to me (I was away at the time)

Here's some marmite history:
http://www.marmite.com/love/history/


And hey, I hate to quibble - I know the previous wasn't a very good pic, cos phone resolutions arent very high but Max was white with tabby bits!  A standing joke from when I chose him (details in my first story of him on the memorial thread) and whenever he was registered at a vet they'd put tabby & white, and I always said "No - White with tabby bits"
Hope this pic shows it better!


Anyhow, guess thread now well off topic - if someone wants to move it misc or something (under ?marmite!!)

Thanks for posting more pictures.

I love to read threads that 'go off-topic' as they develop! That is the way real-life conversations happen, too. I'll have to try to find some marmite here in the US.  Brewers yeast does help repel mosquitoes for me.

I love the picture of him drinking from the pitcher!  And yes, that picture shows he was more white than tabby.

I think I'll move the thread to the Den, since it's now more about Max than about the photo question (which is as it should be, since Max is the important part  Cheesy )

And we can continue the discussion of Marmite there, too.  From my (limited) experience with Marmite, I've always thought it must be an acquired taste.  For those of you who have never eaten it, imagine smashing a beef bouillon cube with just enough water to turn it into a paste, then spreading it on your toast.  That's what it tasted like to me.

I agree - I hate the stuff.  But actually its vegetarian - no meat base!
Do you have those snacky stick things called Twiglets?  They have a marmite-y coating.
Apparently in Oz they have something almost the same called Vegemite.

The drinking from the jug was something he developed after the crf - I found he always wanted to drink from jugs/glasses - it helps not to have to put the head down too far.  His food bowl was on top of an inverted flowerpot too.

An excuse for another max pic (or two) then-

Here's both of them the day they were 'liberated' after the last house move (I always keep them in 2-3 weeks, esp since I never move more than 500yds as the crow flies)

b/f's idea - I came through to open the new-fitted catflap to find the ribbon across & him with scissors ready for the cutting ceremony.
However they were wondering wtf he was doing by then so seem to have lost interest!



And here they both are vying for Mark's lap - eppie's normal place, which is why she's looking none too pleased.  You can see how much more white max is

So is there any chance we could change the title of the thread to "Max and Marmite" or something more indicative???
Thanks
