    michael, if you go to around the 190th comment from the Weekend “Toon Trivia” you’ll find the below posted there, too.(Without the minor additions.) (That’ll teach me to post below the 15th comment!)

    Hi, michael,
    I took a while to get back to you. I had to learn a few things myself before I could get the coding to work. This has been tested, but there is still no guarantee it’ll work for you until it does.


    TO POST AN IMAGE TO FIT THE TEXT BOX

    1  Copy the coding below and paste it into a WordPad document (NOT Word, if your settings are wrong the coding won’t work.)

    <img width="360" src="The URL of the image goes here">

    2  Now let’s go back to    terbos’ “Hammer Throw” entry from two (now 5) days ago (It will open in a different tab). When you’ve done that, come back to here.

    Click here.

    3  Go back to the “Hammer Throw” image and right click. You’ll have a dialogue box starting with “Open link” (grayed out) and ending with “Properties.”

    4  Left click on “Properties.” This will open another dialogue box. In that box you want the "Address: (URL) line. This is the URL of the image.

    5  Place your cursor anywhere within the URL itself, and when the cursor has changed to the I-bar right click and then left click on “Select all.”

    6  Move your cursor back to the now highlighted in blue address, and right click. This time left click on “Copy.” You will now have this on your clip board:

    http://www.wired.com/wp-content/uploads/blogs/playbook/wp-content/uploads/2012/09/AP110911020144.jpg

    and this is the address you paste where shown in the WordPad document you put the coding. (Make sure that there are no spaces between the URL and      "     at either the beginning or end of the URL.)

    If the image pixel width is equal to, or smaller than 360, you should delete the   width=“360”   element from the coding or, if smaller, the image will distort.

    Once again, if I’ve written and coded things properly, this should work.

    GOOD OL’ SAN DIEGO. They’ll never win because as soon as a player get’s good enough to want more money, they trade him. That’s why I don’t go to baseball games and the Chargers are the same way’ Gwinn could have gotten three times what the Padres were paying him, but his loyalty was to the city and that’s where he stayed until he died.

    The curse of the goat still haunts the Chicago Cubs, who last won the World Series in 1908.

    Ricig, it’s actually 16 current MLB teams that failed to win a World Series in the last 25 years, not 14.
