I have just added jpeg to the list of allowed attachments - maybe Yahoo or the resizer has switched from jpg

I've also increased the allowance for each attachment to 2M and the total per post to 6M

If you can see them out of the window, isn't it too late?  :)

There's a FAQ here on pictures:,1825.0.html

Although server memory is a lot cheaper that it used to be, the average size of an image has risen faster :)
Unless you use a massive HD or UHD screen, 1024px is plenty large enough for a forum image.

That’s odd.

< Anorak warning >
Joint Photographic Experts Group designed this 25 years ago. You can compress a digital image by a factor of 10 with little discernible loss of quality.

The file extension is normally .jpg but I see that .jpeg is used at times. I will add it to the list - can’t do it at the moment as I’m using my phone

What sort of photo files are you trying to upload? I can soon add another variant to the “allowed” list.

Hi and welcome.
I used to travel to RTP a lot in the late 80s when I worked for Northern Telecom.

I did a couple of RHS shows in the Ltd 70s when I was a student in Brighton. It was the Racing & Sporting show.

I don't want to cause offense here but there have been some instances of members putting stuff on ebay and linking it here.

If you want to offer your old parts to other members of this forum, please include an asking price and make sure that members here get a chance to talk to you about it before you list it on ebay.

Links to ebay auctions will be removed :(

Ad will be removed after 60 days.
