@ianrandom - Ian, I just ordered an SSL Certificate for my site. It was only $25.00 so no biggie.

ianrandom In theory if anyone has Internet Explorer they should see the pics. Maybe someone can test this for us.

ianrandom Lol don't worry I'm not uber techy either. It just means the pics are still there apparently but browsers that don't see a certain security certification won't show them.
It would explain why they disappeared, I do remember Mike restoring them.

I've been good thanks!

I'm married now, almost a year, to the girl in my avatar picture, Erin. She wonderful and supports all of my hobbies. I live near DC and I work for the Navy now at PAX River Naval Air Station. I have my dream job writing software for the Navy, that our Fleet sailors will use for decades to come. One of my projects is for the Test Pilot's School! I get to go to TPS regularly, and it's pure heaven for me! I am building them a 6' long Aircraft Carrier, the USS America CV-66 (The ship I served on.)

I still have my C216, plus two other cars, so I only drive the CL550 on the weekends and maybe to work once in a while. It sits in the garage mostly now. I sold all of my 126 parts to a member here and I'm sure he'll announce it when he's ready. I have zero desire to turn a wrench anymore. I live in Solomon's Island, think New England Fishing Village. We have a large 5000 sq. ft. home on the Chesapeake Bay right on the water. I could never have dreamed that I would be so lucky, ever! It's like a dream the last three years! Thinking about buying a boat now.

granit560 good to see your name on here again.missed you, how are things going?

mclare Okay, so I just tried an experiment. I posted the previous post and copied the ten links and made them twenty. So you can have more than ten links in a post.

If somebody could go through all of my posts and make a master list of all of the pic links, that would help.

You will have to use my instructions from above. Quote each post then copy the links out and make one long post with all of the links.

So Here's what you can do:

1) If you quote my post that you want to see the pics of, you will see the links to the pics and they are still active. Copy the entire text and paste it into a text editor and then get rid of the [img] and [/img] and you will have the URL of the pic. Copy and paste that into your browser and the pic will come up. It's a PITA, but better than nothing.

2) Type this into your browser: "http://www.michaelclare.com/Mercedes/Pictures/" and you will get a directory listing of ALL of the pics that I have ever uploaded to BW. you will still have to do the post quote and see what pic numbers they are. You can D/L them from there too.

3) SOMEBODY can quote each post of mine and then mash the IMG's into links for everyone to see. I don't really have the time as I am stretched on so many other projects.

4) What I can and will TRY to do is to make a photo packet of each subject and then put a post up with a link so you guys can download them all at once. It will be a big drain on my bandwidth, but oh well.

I probably send them to Ian or somebody for safekeeping in case I die or something??

Her are the first ten links:
