How can I post a screenshot?

Without the picture being posted on some website somewhere? I don't own a website or anything. The only way I could get it online would be on my MySpace page but not everyone has an account for MySpace.

if you're gonna use qb4.0 you'll want to use RelLib or some other library. for sure. i had absolutely no problems with speed with rellib. the only problems i had were memory. (but then i found FB and all my memory problems went away) phew

Douglas Adams vs Terry Pratchett

i dont know how many books adams has written but i know pratchett has more than 20. maybe 30. i do find adams to be funny, but his humor seems set up, squeezed out rather than natural. hes great at those little non-sequiters and so is terry pratchett. but pratchett's humor depends more on his charac...
