I noticed your images are hosted on
Is it possible you can upload them to this site, in case
goes out of business?
Ideally for larger images you can "create a thumb" -or- just size it yourself.

Actually - I'm totally fine with hot linking if you have any opposition to uploading.  Shack's on dialup, so transferring files might be something he's not interested in spending time doing :-)

As long as the images are able to be hotlinked (they don't end up blocked out by the host account) and are owned by the member, hotlinking should be encouraged.

As for ImageShack going out of business, I don't see it. They've been around for years now and are going strong and getting stronger. I'd imagine it's a service that will be around a long, long time, especially since they're the leader in image hosting.

Didn't realize there was a pic file host feature here.

But +1 on the imageshack bit, they've been around for a while and their file hosting never sems to go away. One of the play-by-post games I'm involved in was started by a guy that passed away, and it's been over a year now and his original files are still being hosted there via imageshack.
