    The following image has appeared on BF more than a few times. But here it is again.

    How-to steps:
    1) find a photo that you like
    2) right click on it
    3) click on properties
    4) beside 'address (URL)', is the image address which often ends with .jpg
    5) copy that address
    6) go to a thread which is already in progress (maybe one in which people are bragging about how much they paid for a bike, or any thread in Foo)
    7) click on the little picture frame with the tree in it
    8) paste the URL into the field (make sure you don't get two httpees://) then click OK
    9) make sure you followed step 6 properly
    10) click Post Quick Reply

    I'm not sure what Flamed means ? sounds bad though..

    But I will tell you a true story that does not favor me.. About 2 years ago I finally convinced my
    wife to try biking with me. She was riding my favorite mountain bike at the time, only going
    for a 2 or 3 mile ride on the road..Wanted her to enjoy it. After the first mile or so she was
    having a good time, but having trouble shifting gears. So I pull up close to her to explain how
    to shift, well she suddenly swerves and hits my front tire, ( my fault for being to close ) and
    wipes out horrible, she is in the ditch, bikes in the road, so I stop and run for the bike. Pick it
    up and start to see how much damage..( Cause I was worried it might not make it back home )
    Well my wifes says, what the F#@k are you doing, my answer was, Well your safe
    in the ditch, but the bike is in the middle of the road...only problem was there was no cars to
    be seen for miles, and had not seen any...that ended her biking. Hand was cut, knee was
    scraped and bruised, needless to say I felt like a sh#t head after wards..But she loves to tell
    the story every time biking comes up at parties..

    Flamed=Interwebz connotation; Tossed, kicked, scathed, thrashed, dissed, etc, as in the shot of the guy in the tent with the bike.

    This is not directed at you, but if you do not have nothing nice to say. Just do not post
    anything.... Best regards, Richard

    Wow, what's with the hostility? You wanted to know what Flamed meant. I was referring to the image of the guy sleeping with his bike. It was posted here about a year ago and we all tossed it around the "house" and then it died a quiet death. Chill, man. No worries.

    I'm sorry you took offense, I said this was not directed at you.

    I was just thinking of the post people make with good intentions, and then getting bashed,
    and when you said it got flamed, I was referring to the old posters, I new you were being
    nice. It's all good !

    Yeah, the webernetz does emotions poorly, if at all. No problem.

    This is really a nice forum..

    And after reading my post again, I can see where you could easily take it out of context.
    I did say this was not directed at you, and was thinking of people who discourage others
    from posting for fear of embarrassment. Again I apologize for sounding hostile. but was never
    meant towards you....Richard
