Easy image posting option
« on: 27 January 2021, 19:33 »
You know how since... oooh 2002, adding images on here has been a constant source of problem? Well, don't say we don't tackle issues head on here at GTI towers. Oh yes, we now have an "Add image to post" button. It uses the service provided by https://postimages.org/ so images are stored/hosted by them, not us - which was always the headache I couldn't be bothered to deal with in the past.

So there you go. 2021 and it's all going on here.
