No Scam, Sorry!

Sorry all!

Not a phishing scam! Didn't realize it needed a password to view. I must have screwed something up because I've used this before to let my friends view pix from an email link w/o problems. I'll try and edit and see if that fixes it.

Cordially,
=Tymme a.k.a. 'Darkelf'

p.s. is there another way to have embedded pix w/o needing a website host? I've tried the attachment method and prefer embedding.

I wondered what the heck everyone was on about until later on this afternoon. I guess it wasn't requesting the password when he first posted the pix, and I got them cached locally, so kept going back to see what was going on... and nothing happened... until this afternoon when I guess they dropped out of the browser cache lol.

this was asking for a cell phone #. Am I being paranoid or is that a strange thing to require?

Kinda is, but I usually just change a number in my cell number so I don't get any calls.
