If anyone is trying to put up an image on here and can't get it to work because you have it on a free website server (like Geocities) there's a quick way around it.

Geocities (and some other free webhosting services) don't allow you to hotlink to images stored on your account, however they do let you link to other files, like .txt. A handy little feature in most mainstream web browsers (Like MSIE or Opera or Netscape) will identify a mis-named image file and display it as an image and not text.

So,

All you have to do is upload the image onto your account, and then rename it from "image.jpg" to "image.txt," and then link to the newly renamed text file, and web browsers will take care of the rest.
