I took that photo last year at Dionysos Solomos Airport on the Island of Zakynthos aka Zante. (LGZA) It's one of my favourite Greek islands.  

Quoting Dragon-wings (Reply 9):

The easiest way to do it (by hosting the image remotely) is to upload your image to a photo host, such as http://www.tinypic.com. Once you've done this, it will display HTML code in a field named "HTML for Websites". Copy and paste this into the post form on A.net.

There's also other photo sharing websites, such as Flickr. (I use this personally) But you need to sign up for an account in order to use it.

Hope that helps

Not the official MSN client. An alternative called aMSN. It has many extra features that the official MSN client doesn't have (e.g. nudges, ink drawings, winks). It's open-source, more info and download here

Just a quick question for you.

What camera do you have, and how do you get a 30 minute exposure??

Nikon D90. You need a wired remote so you can "lock" the shutter in the open position for as long as you like.

You can usually get it done by pressing the Print Screen key (Upper right of keyboard)
Open MSPaint, Hit Paste, then Save the file (and upload it and attach it to a post)

Ultimately, If you can use something like photoshop (Create new image, then paste, then save) You'll probably get better compression on the image without it being butchered for quality.

I seriously doubt its long enough to really block out any noise, that area is going to be noisy with or without a steel tube. if was really was neccesary to build they could have at least design it a way as not to use so much material for such a small sound wall
can you explain the wisdom behind the gateway to melbourne (the matchsticks) and the random art on eastlink such as the hotel?

It cuts out the majority of the sound along there...

In regards to the other items, They're art and architecture, I'm not saying they're good, but that's what they are.

I found this, I feel this to be exceptionally epic, The kind of 'epic' that goes beyond words.

I guess it's kinda obvious I love colour - It seems ashame to waste a 22" WS LCD with some average image that you kinda see everyday or something so cliched.

Anyway, as I mentioned... Epicness.
