RAGBRAI XLIX registration is now open!

Upload photos

I need a refresher course in uploading photos to the forum. I think I need to have a site where my photos are stored and get a code there. I don’t remember what site I stored them on! OH dear! I guess I need instructions and a few suggestions where you all store your photos. It might jog my memory!

Let’s see if I know how to do it! I right clicked on a photo on the RAGBRAI home page and selected copy link address. Then I came here and clicked on the img button above the edit window I am currently typing. A dialog box pops up and you paste the link to the photo into it. Then another box pops up where you can type in some descriptive text, which may or may not appear below if I have done this right:

I think the princess may be getting as old as this peasant. I know the answers to your other questions but, alas, I have forgotten them!

Didn’t work, I should have used “copy image address“!

And that didn’t work either! Maybe it’s just broken.

One more time with an image that is not on the RAGBRAI site.

Good afternoon, KenH!!

As a semi-skilled amateur photographer, one of my favorite subjects is “Still Life.” I just can’t get over the beauty of your picture, but for the life of me, I can’t figure out what the heck it is. I was thinking “Flux Capacitor” from the Back to the Future franchise, but this device is too simple for that.

I give up! What is it? If it’s a top secret project that you’re working on, in your engineering capacity, I don’t want to know, so forget I asked!

See you along the I-O-Way next year.

That was top secret in 1940, not so much today. You are looking at part of the tuner in a Hallicrafters SX-25 Super Defiant shortwave radio. One of the last they made before they switched to war material production. They may have made some for military use. Flux gate capacitor wasn’t too far off the mark!

KenH,

Thanks for the clarification! My second guess was going to be a part of the tuner in a Hallicrafters SX-25 Super Defiant shortwave radio, but I thought that was too obvious. (rim shot 🤪).

See you along the I-O-Way next year.
