No, it looked like a base ball stitch.

Again, the non-welders know of the "stack of nickels bit and often judge the weld by that. Since you know more than the average non-welders its hard to think in their terms. Beauty often looks better than perfection; actors and actresses should tell you that 😂.

I'm having trouble posting on STF again. Anything with a URL or even just simple post is being dropped or it says that I can't post to this place. Lets see if this works.

I think the pictures that I remember that were posted may have some from TOS many years ago. They were a bunch of guys showing off their skills and the one I am remembering is several tubes being welded together in a pack.

Yeah it was but this seems to be an ongoing thing. I write up a post and then send and it takes a while then "can't send" then the message is gone. the same with photos.

Weird I never have that issue sometimes uploading lags a lot. A quick fix for yours would be to write the post then copy it just to make sure you don't lose it. Like highlight blue and copy or just write it up on a word document or other such thing. Makes sure you dont have to rewrite it.

I understand the issues though I made a very simple website once and it was not easy

Actually I do do that a lot especially when I have been having this kind of problem. I changed security carrier and it didn't change things that much, just got cheaper :D . Its funny, when I am going through the my Android tablet is also acting up.

You "do-do" that, huh?

To me, "do-do" is a semi-polite (ie not profane)term referring to what the dog leaves on the back lawn.

But I've been having trouble with trying to post pictures. So I get your frustration Lee.

The dog doesn't always leave do-do on the lawn occasionally its in the house.
and I haven't gotten. To the point of prewriting my posts but a few times I've had stuff delete on me. Stf usually gets photos later that tos because of the resizing and common issues. Tos won't let me upload anything but jpeg photos so my saved screenshots won't upload there. All sites have their little issues.

In this case "do do" is not canine feces but "also do" (unless that is some other kind of no-no subject) nor is it the results of (edited). :oops: :oops: :roll:

I really don't know what is causing it as it come and goes and you never know just what it is going to do at any one time.

You can use something like Paint to convert screenshots to .jpg.

im using a chromebook currently and that doesnt have paint ive found i have to either directly save the image or go to google draw and save it from there. works the same as using paint just another option for people to know.
