    Oh, I did the BBS thing too. The Bread Board System running on a TRS-80 with the memory expansion and two floppy drives.

    The good old days.......

    Oh, you want pissing contest? I was running two BBS systems in 1983, one using TBBS (TRS-80) and one using PAM (Apple][), but I installed my first computer network in 1970 using BTAM to link TWX machines. This is not my first rodeo.

    If you think we are ignoring the problem or aren't aware of the potential for disaster, please disavow yourself of this notion. We know how to contact @vtac. Right now, he is not responding.

    ROTFLMAO..... The TRASH80..... You know, there are STILL clubs of people who use those things Fucking cult. I never had a TRS80 but Tandy got me later on with a 1000, was it a TL1000? Been too long. The DOS kernel was on an IC on the motherboard. LOL I guess they figured DOS6.2 was the top of the line. LMAO Like Gates said, we'll never need more than 640k of memory. Not as long as we stick with DOS 6.2

    During the TRS80 days I had a Texas Instrument TI-99-4/a. Another one who put the OS on a chip. In this case, it was an open expansion slot. When you think of it, it was a giant thumb drive and the OS and the games loaded there. We used cassette tape in those days to store data. LOL

    Hey bud, never meant to say no one was trying. Just, not succeeding.

    Salutations PakaLolo,

    Who wants to blame the owner, as long as FC's domain name ain't allowed to go expired by October 26, i guess:


    So, who's left around today who knows what has lead to this "MIA" situation exactly? Any hints which might justify the eventual sinking of VTac's FC ship?? Like a mutiny preceeding the VA migration, for example?...

    :worms:

    Also, has there been any new retailer/advertiser approvals since he went MIA last spring?


    It may help to dissipate some of the related confusion as observed once in a while. As if FC became a convenient source of "free meal" where to host lame 3rd-party mercantile links, using multiple IDs and other fake strategies... Which is most regrettable for decent members, if it's actually what that is like.

    Good day, have fun!! :peace:

    Saw @Vitolo mentioning the extra I. added to the BBCode when we paste them in the posting area.
    He said erasing I. that gets added after the //, and before the word imgur, should show the pic.
    More testing, let me know if pic shows for all.

    No, but we can see your image if we follow that protocol. It just won't appear in a published post.
    I can see your image now, but once I hit "post reply" it will be gone.

    Am I alone in that I am just holding my finger over the image icon (on a touchscreen) until a box pops up with options from which I select "view image". I am taking to the image on imgur, but it is not possible to see the whole image on my tablet screen I have to scroll up and down to view it properly so it's not ideal.

    But when I press back and return here the image is displayed normally in the post without me needing to reply. Is this not how it is working for other people? Because this is really no problem for me like this I only have to view the image once and then it stays properly displayed here on the forum in the post.

    Trying to view the image in the reply box is hopeless for me on my tablet screen you can barely see any of the image at one time because it is also shrunken down.

    This has been responded to earlier.... once you see it the image is "cached" on your computer.
    If you close page and clear cache, the image then will vanish again.
    All good though... we get to see the image using our various techniques that work with each of our PCs, and Laptops.

    Sock Puppetry at it's worst!

    Thank you for Clarifying that Vitolo, and yes I understand that I just wanted to make sure that others are able to unlock the images in the actual post in the same way I am myself. It just seems like a much better way to view the image than in a reply box where on my device I can hardly see any of the image at all at one time.

    So I was looking for some Assurance that this route is still working for other people so that I know people will have this option to view my own photos. Sincerely hope you are doing well at the moment Vitolo anyway and always wishing you the very best.:)

    Sorry everyone, I’m sure this has been answered but I actually can’t find the answer in the thread. I am accessing this website using Safari on iOS. I do not see IMG images. Is there a way to fix this?

    I did not post a pic.
    I was giving an example of what she should "left click" on.
    I just edited the post with a real image so you and others will not get confused.
