Using Picasa for the first time, I thought it might be interesting
to post a shot of an epoxy bonded framing done last year. The URL I
came up with is:
and the tinyurl is:
Using Google on an iMac, and I don't see a way to underline and turn
the text blue, or do a proper hyperlink.
If this works, I'll post some other things.
I can see your picture just fine, Joe. Actually I can see the thumbnail,
and clicking on the thumbnail brings up a larger version.
As to making the link blue and underlined, that happens at the recipient's
end, and occurs when the newsreading software identifies it as a hyperlink
(this is a good thing, as usenet is a text-based medium).
I agree. that's why tinyurl has a preview link so you can see the url you're
going to first. I wish more people would use it when they post links. Of
course it's easy enough just to add it to the link yourself. It works for
any tinyurl link AFAICT.
No. But I have enough common sense to realize that if it links to
download.php or any of a few other files I may not want to click on it.
Most of the better managed forums do not allow redirected URLs. A Few of
those sites have been hijacked and even if the initial poster was real you
never know where the link is going later.
I didn't think of it until now, but for my email, everything goes
through "Mailwasher Pro" first and there it shows the link and the
'real' link. I don't think I can do that with newsgroups.
I like Mailwasher, especially since when it was freeware (or shareware?)
I paid the guy $20 because I liked the program. A month later I think
they were bought out or went commercial or something, but by paying that
$20 7 or 8 years ago, I have free updates for life.
This is pretty ironic. Don't know of you use McAfee Site Advisor or
not, but if you go to http://www.mailwasher.net/ MSA has the following
In our tests, we found downloads on this site that some people
consider adware, spyware or other potentially unwanted programs.
It worked just fine Joe. Where can I get more info on Epoxy bonded framing?
Google isn't turning up much without better context to search on. Something
like a link to the manufacturer of the epoxy would help tremendously.
I did that structural element that way because SWMBO wanted 'an open
plan' in a 16' x 24' space. My architect said the 2x8's had to be
bolted to the doubled 2 x 12's so I just went ahead and glued up 4 L-
shaped pieces on both sides, set the 2x8's on the glued on shelf,
cemented and clamped the whole thing together. That eliminated a load
bearing wall that really wasn't well supported on the bottom anyway,
and corrected 50 years of sagging ceiling. Simpsons are neat things,
but the 2x8's here carry 2x4 ceiling rafters, and yes, I used Simpsons
I've been doing epoxy bonded framing for years, but it isn't done
commercially because of the cost. I buy resin and hardeners from an
industrial distributor, but there are many good suppliers out there
like West Systems, etc. that should show up on Google.
I'm going to be brave and try a Picasa link of trusses I made. Bought
one commercial 30 truss and used it as the pattern for all the rest.
Gussets were scrap 1/2 " plywood screwed and epoxied in place. My
building inspector was in awe.
