where can i find some? i need a nice warm place to put my pictures (for posting here), since the new forum no longer allows me to just upload.

Most free web servers don't allow outside linking of files (like posting pictures on forums). The only ones I can think of that will allow it off hand are Liquid 2K (http://www.liquid2k.com/) and geocities (http://geocities.yahoo.com/). The only problem is that Liquid 2K's servers are down alot and are very unreliable and Geocities will only allow outside linking of txt files, so if you have a picture called table.jpg, you have to rename it table.txt and link that in the forum. The forum will still recognize what it is and display the picture correctly but geocities will be fooled and will allow the outside linking.

There may be other free servers that allow outside linking but I don't know of anymore.

You have to spend 30 seconds setting up a free webpage, and then put your picture on it.

In addition to free webspace, is there some kind of free, or very cheap software, that will assemble web pages? I'm no kind of html guru so I was wondering what most people used. Don't really want to spend the money on something like Dreamweaver or Adobe GoLive!, just need something that will let me create pages to upload to my webspace.

If you've got a version of Photoshop that is 5.5 or higher, you can use Image Ready to quickly make pages for displaying pictures. The pages aren't optimized very well but its a quick solution.

Arachnophilia (http://www.arachnoid.com/arachnophilia/) is probably the best freeware HTML editor.

Hey thanks, feckit.
I was using Textpad 5.0 trail to make all my (d)html, I'll give Arach a try :)

well if you have microsoft office 2k/xp I think they both come with frontpage, which is pretty simple to use. I set up a site with netfirms.com however I haven't tried posting anything yet, so I don't know if that works.

I use digital space to host my sites. It isn't free but it is damn cheap (starting at $3 a month) for what you get. And there are no setup fees. Check it out at http://www.digitalspace.net/

A buddy of mine hosts for cheap. He does web design too, quite talented. I think the cheapest is $5.95 a month with 40mb space and 3gb bandwidth and two e-mail addresses.
