Okay, I'm doing something wrong here. The image is on Flickr (you can see the url link), but the direct link doesn't take. Any suggestions? I've read the "how to" section, and it seemed pretty simple. Then again, I used to think politics were simple...
The forum software can only embed pictures with a photo (.jpg, .gif, etc.) extension. The easiest way to embed the photo is to do a right mouse click on the photo itself in Flickr and from the menu select "copy image URL" and use that as the link to embed the photo, rather than the URL from the browser when you are looking at the photo.
So here is the image URL for your photo: http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7056/6941692451_6a82c8d7df_z.jpg
And here is the embedded picture:
PS. Nice photo! The solar panels on my house are 40 Feet up on a flat roof and have a super low profile, so the only way I can replicate your photo at my house is if Google Earth happens to take a photo of my house and the Karma at the same time.
