Sorry but I don't understand when u say " somewhere that allows outside views " . Do u mean a homepage or somthing 'cause if u do I don't have one.

alright just email your sig to me and ill host it on my f2s site if you want..
21st June 2001, 16:04
yes, that happend to me too.. :(
Use homestead: http://www.homestead.com and register, then upload your sig and put a link to the image into your sig
that's how my sig looks like:<img>http://nini.homestead.com/Files/img/sig22.gif</img>
(note:you'll have to use such [ ] tags
sawg, how did you turn off vb code for [img]??)

Apparently Homstead is dead. Register a site with f2s.com, upload your image file. If your f2s.com site is http://www.username.f2s.com and your image is mycoolpic.jpg then once uploaded the address of the your pic will be "www.username.f2s.com/mycoolpic.jpg" (w/out quotes) now go into your forums.winamp profile and in the Signature text box type:
You'll have to put the image tags on either side, info here (http://forums.winamp.com/index.php?action=bbcode)

what do you mean with homestead is dead? my sig is still showing
21st June 2001, 16:31
Homestead is dead as in they are real nazis with how they limit the free plan.
21st June 2001, 21:20
arse, your plan is flawed. f2s quit accepting new members months ago.
21st June 2001, 22:58
funny, i just registered an acct there a few days ago.
21st June 2001, 23:02
I think that F2S only stopped taking on more members was because they were upgrading their servers to accomodate new members.

First of all thanks to everyone who posted there know-how & showed me what to do, also thanks to "Invisable Man" for your offer but it's about time I got my own site so I've registered with "f2s" :)
Yes "Bilbo Baggins" is correct in what he says about the new servers on "f2s" and they seem to load at light speed !!!
As for "Homestead" well thats another story !
No they arn't dead..yet but unless u wanna pay somthing in the region of $10 p.m. as of the 26th June u will be down-graded to a much smaller & very limited web page. Here's all the info http://www.homestead.com/~site/HomesteadPersonal/CEOLetter.ffhtml
Thanks again guys !
22nd June 2001, 01:49
Yeah, sorry about my incorrect info, looks like F2S is back. Yay!
Time to make up some sort of site so I can host there without getting kicked off!

nateJC ...."she'll be right mate" hehehe ( aussie slang for "no problem" )

thanks for telling me what's up with homestead...
I use it only for my sig and haven't noticed that they wanna see money...f**k! :mad:
Well, I suppose a smaller homestead version will be at least enough for my sig, too

Oh, thats why my sig was playing up, i had no idea, as well as AOL, GEOCITIES IS CRAP.
Oh yea, AOL is good for one reason, you can upload sigs onto that like mine is.

it kicks hosting off ur own computer, no ads, it's fast, and u can edit the files straight from where they are. not to mention no uploading, no bs, no junk e-mails
it just saves on a whole lotta problems :)
http://www.analogx.com is the place where i got my server
