<blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p>How do you guys host images or where? Is there a free option?<p><hr></blockquote><p>All you need is server space somewhere to store the pictures. Many around here use Apple's, definitely not free, .Mac (iDisk) service and some have other arrangements. Some ISPs offer space, too.<br><br>

I also have a <A HREF=http://www.spymac.com/network.php?p=tour>[color:DARKCYAN]<U>free SpyMac account</U></FONT></A>, and along with the 1 GB email, you get 100 MB of server space and can use upto 1.5 GB of bandwidth a month.<br><br>It's a little quirky, but whaddaya want for frree?<br><br>

If you haven't used your SpyMac account in a while, make sure you understand that they changed some stuff. They no longer allow FTP access with a client-side application. You either have to use their web-based thing (which I couldn't get to work) or—better yet—set up your SpyMac folder location to connect to through WebDAV in the Mac OS.<br><br>Also, you have to check your mail somewhat regularly. I think they're trying to weed out inactive accounts, and you must reply to an email they send to your SpyMac address, confirming that you want to continue using their free services. They just implemenetd this policy, and I think they'll be sending that email 4 times per year.<br><br>
Man, they aren't messing around. I just logged on and found the confirmation email, but I also found this. <blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p> In addition, we will be sending an email out every 4 weeks, asking members to confirm that their accounts are still active. <p><hr></blockquote><p>That's pretty harsh, I think. Then again, there's no such thing as a free lunch. I am going to explore the WebDAV option. Sounds cool. Thank you for you continued help. <br><br>
For what it's worth, I have Earthlink, and I get 8 email accounts with 8 personal web space accounts, 10MB each. <br><br>It's perfect because you can set up an anonymous dummy account to publicly host your images.<br><br>
