Okay; I will post a sig.  Can you believe a woman was actually mad at me today for using this sig?

Thanks,

Take care

She probably thought it was intentional. If you have space can you try attaching it (using the paper clip icon instead of insert) and let me see how it is suppose to look.

I will try, but I don't know if it will work.  Someone here told me not to use that one time.  I don't think it worked; I don't see the picture.  Come to think of it; I was supposed to clear my allotment and I don't know how.  Sorry to be so much trouble.

Take care,

Catherine

that worked fine - see how it flashes in the post but when you click on it - it does not.

The real size of it is CatherineLC.gif (GIF Image, 349 × 338 pixels)

But when you insert it from your computer to the post it is resized  CatherineLC.gif (GIF Image, 309 × 299 pixels)

I uploaded it to my files - you are welcome to use it. Just save this web address http://people.delphiforums.com/Kidmagnet/Catherine%20C/CatherineLC.gif  

You can copy and paste it into the Insert Image field choosing From the Web

If there is not a reason for her to leave it, can I ask Catherine to remove her images (I'm sure she'd like the space back for the attachment and the flashing is SUPER annoying if you happen to scroll by)

Don't think it's needed, it shows what is happening, explains things for others, and the annoyance is only fleeting.

With all due respect, those flickering images ought to be removed ASAP. You may or may not remember a recent case where someone sent one in a tweet to a journalist known to suffer from epilepsy – it worked as desired, it caused a seizure, but fortunately his wife was around and so he's still alive. EDITED TO ADD: I'm obviously not accusing the original poster of doing this deliberately, clearly they didn't, but should one of those flashing images cause someone problems, it doesn't matter whether it's deliberate or not.
