I am attempting to place my profile photo on my personal profile, but it doesn't seem to want to accept it. The size requirements are in line, but I wonder if anyone could help me understand why my photo won't load properly? Looks like I may have purchased this bow tie and had my photo taken all for nothing.

Hmmm...

You do have a passing resemblance to the bishop in The Bishop's Wife.

OMG!!! That's you Rick? If yes I had imagined you different. :)

Correction: No that's not you! You misleader you! :) I rushed and did not take the advise of Father Raphael. He is right, as always. :)

What a dashing, debonair, not a hint of grey scoundrel you are.

Didn't you play opposite Steve Martin in "Scoundrels"?

Dear Rick,

Don't remember the dancing - but I liked you in the original Casino Royale.

The memoirs were good too!:)

For some reason the link posted as part of Alexander's post above showed up in my email inbox but not here on the Forum.

Funnily enough Rick, your personality as perceived through your posts, is similar to the one this actor protrayed in many of his films.

Good choice.

From James Bond to Inspector Clouseau . . . Hmmm . . . probably more the latter :) But then again there was that Bishop and his antics with his mission. Actually, I've always considered myself a little bit of a Columbo man too! Do you know who this is Effie? This is a character played by Peter Falk on American TV in the 70's.

Yes, yes, I know Columbo. Are you really like this? David Niven is the exact opposite - dress wise, at least............................


I loved the Columbo series. I wish some of these old series were on TV today, although there are also some good ones on now. I just finished watching the first two seasons of Jail Break on DVD. It's been a long time since I watched something that was so riveting.... Went through all the episodes in about 3 days!!!!!

I had no trouble posting my profile photo but I don't really remember how I did it!!!

Hmmm! I wonder what Columbo sounds like in Greek?

And what would they call him? Kolumvakis?

Father, the suffix "-akis" is for greeks from Crete.

In north west and central Greece our names usually end in "os", or "as".

So Columbo would be Columbos as in Christopher Columbos.

All foreign films and series are aired in their original language and have sub-titles. The exception is the Spanish language series, which is terrible because before the TV channels changed their policy we were all becoming quite proficient in Spanish, which is one of the most beautiful languages in existence.

Thanks for making me laugh - I've just been watching the news report of another terrible forest fire. This summer will be remembered for the destruction caused by these fires.

You know Effie, now that you mention it, I'm not really like that. And, since now am I Greek Orthodox man, I think I am not like Lt. Columbo at all anymore, but now more like Lt. Kojack!

Hmmm... are you guys using the "Image Hosting" link from the menu at the top of the page? You click it, it pops a menu up, you select "Upload an image", it takes you to your upload images page where you have this panel on the right:

[ATTACH]44[/ATTACH]

You click "Browse" and select your image from the "Choose file" dialog that pops up, then click "Upload for hosting" to actually upload it into your image collection (I forgot that last step the first time I tried).

If you did all that and it didn't work, and the image is within the size and type limits (GIF, JPG, PNG, or BMP; 700x768 pixels; 1024KB), then I be clueless (Call Columbo! Call Clouseau! Call Kojack! We have a mystery!).

But, Effie, Mike just said we have a real mystery on our hands! And if I put my real photo up on the board then I will no longer be "the international man of mystery" (no not John Kerry)
. . . Austin Powers. And, then where will this leave us with the mystery which has just presented itself to us here a few posts ago? :confused:

I really dunno about this Effie? There is so much at stake here! And, speaking of stakes, based on some of the PM's I get, there are those who have gathered wood already and this would make it much easier for them. So I'm not sure . . .

Dear Effie,

As Telly always used to say, "Who loves ya baby?"

Actually, in this photo, I look a little more like Kojack's brother Stavros. :)

It's terrific that we now have an image to couple with your posts, Rick.

You look like a thoroughly nice person, full of humour. It would be nice to see photos of all our posters, wouldn't it? I have posted mine. I'm with my son and the photo's an old one. I tried to post current photos of myself, my husband and my son but they were too big or something. I made them a lot smaller and then the thought came to me that perhaps I shouldn't post personal photos of my family as everyone else seemed to have posted pictures that were religious. I then deleted them and left only the photo of Meteora.

Effie
