Re: [TCML] How to host photos and other attachments

I've used Flikr, it is fairly easy but in signing up it creates a phantom
yahoo account (oh yay, another search engine account I don't need...)  but
if it pleases the masses I could set one up, and just post the username and
password on here, all one needs is a yahoo or gmail e-mail account and a
password, could just be like pupman at gmail.com with whatever password we
want.  Does that alternative appeal to anyone?
