Have you found a simple way to post pictures? Bring it on, Trukboy!

Sneaking around Chicago today I tried to get some pictures of Big Joe working.

He had this sign by the door.

I snapped a shot of him making saw dust. Trying to emulate Ed.
Then his guard found me and made me leave.:eek:

Getting closer, but still not there.:(

Nope, I just can't post pictures now for some strange reason.:mad:

Wash the poop off your hands and see if that helps.

I can always count on A-1 to bust my gnads, what a guy!:rolleyes:

Here's what I get when I try to post a picture if any of you computer wizards can help:

This happened to me this week also. I figured out that the picture I was trying to send was too large. I had to resize the picture to 350 pixels and then it worked fine.

I am not sure what the max pixel size is for the POG website - but the 350 worked.

Thanks Jamie, that did it.. For some reason, my camera had a brain fart and saved the pic's at 640 X 480. I resized to 600 X 400 and that does it. The interesting thing, is Jon posted my picture above and he didn't have any trouble, unless that sneaky bugger resized it.:rolleyes:

Now I'm going to hear all kinds of grief from Skiffer, he told me to resize and I thought he was smelling to much cow pie gas!:p

Jim: That wasn't a guard. That was "Norm" Canarozzi's journeyman apprentice. That apparatus is a "Chicago Tools" automatic power nailer.

Puts a whole new twist on the Phrase "Got a bigger problem? Get a bigger nailer!":eek:

I resized it Trukster.

That's the rules....no more than 600 in either direction.

You've been around long enough to know that. You are losing it.

02-28-2009, 12:44 PM
I like it, that does look like a roofing nailer now that you mention it.

It won't be long before most won't even remember who that smoking gunman, I mean nailer was.:rolleyes:

Anybody know who this one is. We owe him a lot!

That's a picture of A-1 when he had hair and was a puppy. The picture was taken just prior to him purchasing a sheep farm in Montana.;)

Close, but try again.

This was one of the greatest geniuses that no one knew.

First hint, he was a contemporary of Thomas Edison.

Nikola Tesla

Dr. AC current and many other wonderful things some of which have yet to be fully released.

I was thinking you might get it. Too bad there isn't a prize:p

This one has been posted before but it needed repeating.

I was at an unfair advantage. I won't relate the entirety of the story but just enough:

1. My Dad always subscribed to Popular Mechanics, Mechanics Illustrated, etc..
2. One of them produced "How To" article on Tesla Coils
3. Little Sawdust builds big, no BIG, no BIG Tesla coil
4. During first test of coil, Grandma's Parakeet named Peety meets God.
5. Grandma insists on paying military boarding school tuition for Little Sawdust. Compromise reached, Father Joe makes weekly visits to sprinkle Holy Water and offer Prayers in hopes of saving Little Sawdust.

Later in life, I started looking at a 24 ft class C's and ended up with a PREVOST H345

Yeah!!! That worked.

Were the pictures of the feet with painted nails yours or Sawdusts'?

Nice toes joe, did you get your feet waxed for the occasion? :rolleyes:
