Roach-Busters, we've already been through this. GeoCities doesn't allow hotlinking of pictures. Go get a Photobucket ( or Imageshack ( account. GeoCities sucks.

Oh, and don't link to .BMPs either, if you have ANY way to avoid it. Bitmap files use no compression, and are the largest image files on the the net. Look for a graphics program that creates either JPGs or GIFs. Either that, or grab a free image conversion program like IrfanView (

To add my own $0.02; for some reason, likely related to the exceeding suckiness of my browser, right-clicking on a .BMP file, instead of opening it in a new window, downloads it to disk. So yes, .BMP is bad. As is IE5. >_<

Another note; Tripod also does the same thing as Geocities. As do probably a few other services.
