Another reason to make sure your antivirus is up to date.
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Traffic on the many parts of the Internet slowed dramatically for hours early Saturday, the apparent effects of a fast-spreading, virus-like infection that overwhelmed the world's digital pipelines and interfered with Web browsing and delivery of e-mail.

This is a lengthy and detailed response. Hope it is not to long and makes sense.
Right now my image may not be showing because Village Photos is down. But I hope the following information may be helpful to you.
You have to upload your image to a free site that allows you to link to it.
There are free ones & some you pay a small fee to use. Village Photos is free. Here is a posting from another BB that gives directions on how to link to a free web hosting site.
Village Photos Directions
When you find an image that you like, right click and choose "save image" or "save picture as". When the box
comes up you pick where you want to save the image. I save mine to "my pictures", but it doesn't really matter
where you want to save it. I don't know if you know how to save images so I will go into more detail. You can
pick from the little down arrow for a drop down menu of where you can save your image. When you click on your
choice of where to save it, it puts it in the little save in:_____________ box at the top. Notice that your
image is already listed in "file name" at the bottom. Now, click on "save". Your image is now saved to your
computer at the location you chose.
Next you need to go to <http://villagephotos.com/index.asp> Click on sign up and then fill out the information.
You will only have to do this one time as any other time you come to the site, you will only have to log in
with that username and password to access your images or post new ones. After you fill out the information,
click on "sign up now". On new page follow prompt "click here". Now you will need to "log in". When the next
page comes up, click on "photos". Now click on the word "photos" that is beside the folder. Next you would need
to click "upload new images". When the next page comes up, click on "choose or browse" to bring up the box to
pick your image. Find your image and click on it and then click "open" at the bottom right hand side. This will
put it in the upload box. Now click "upload" and wait for the new screen. Now, click on "click here to
continue" and wait for a new page. Click on the image and wait for another new page. Underneath the picture
will be addresses (in green writing) that you will need. I used the second address HTML IMG to post the signature. Just highlight the green writing and right click and choose "copy" and then you're
ready to put it in your signature box. When you get into your profile at the message board and you scroll down
to the signature box just right click and choose "paste" and make sure you click on "submit modifications" and then you're all set. You will
probably have to make a post or send a pm to get it activated to show.
Now, the only thing I can say negative about Village Photos is that if you ever exceed your daily level, your
image will stop showing until the next day. I personally have never seen this happen. You would have to post a
tremendous amount for that to happen or else have a really big image. They are free and will let you upload
free to that limit. If you ever wanted to exceed that limit and still have your image showing, you can always
pay a small fee and they will upgrade your account. If you ever do want to do that, let me know and I can tell
you of another place that might be a tad cheaper. But, if you are just using the one image like at the message
board, I think the "free" uploading should be fine for you!!
To make the image scroll from side to side you will need to insert HTML text. If you would like to test your signature prior to posting it in your signature box on the profile page you can test it at
I hope this makes sense.
