I have been using "Imageshack" because I was told, but now I am accused of spreading dataminers due to this. Wondering if there are free hosting sites that don't give dataminers. Look its Damo alway attract crazy stuff whether in the real world or SH3 , but I don't won't to spread grief and I want to post little pics for the 56k's. ANd Now I am going to bed, after a smoke. NITE ALL. Look I am an addict
I always use imageshack and was unaware of any probs.

No I am not accusing anyone. Its just when one person clicked on my picture, to enlarge it. He quoted me and picture to say I was datamining and after last week performance I don't wanna cause anymore grief. Because I respect you peoples.

I wasn't the one who makde the comment, but I had noticed that your Imageshack picture did something weird that other people's Imageshack pictures didn't do. I think my Pop-up Stopper (from http://www.panicware.com) took care of it and I just chalked it up to someone trying something funny.

I would be happy to give away some of my servers spaces and bandwith to the community , but, a catastrophique raid failure has occur....
I am actually rebuilding my server ( 3 disk out of 7) ....
PM me if you need some space ( will create a ftp account with a disk quota ) ... Just give me a few hours to fix my machine ....

If you don't already know about dataminers, you have some real work ahead of you.
Dataminers are cookies that collect and send to a third party information about you and your computer. By themselves, they are relatively inoffensive, but as they aggregate on your system, you will increase the risk of opening yourself up to some serious threats.
It is URGENT that you take restorative action against these programs. There are any number of freeware and payware applications that will handle this sort of threat. I use both SpyBot and AdAware SE Personal, as well as AVG Antivirus.
Look for FREEWARE versions of these products at:

Or use Firefox and tell it to remove all cookies when you close it.

Spybot and Adware are key (and free!) Run them often.
