    Did you copy the full address or was it cut off somewhat? Sometimes I find I copy something and miss a couple of letters at the end or beginning XD

    I copied the whole address and the link contains only the picture. Now that I think of it, the size may be big. What is the maximum size that is allowed?

    I think the size limit is on uploaded files.

    If it's a URL it shouldn't matter...

    Could you share your image link here? To have a look at the URL

    Well it is a massive picture, but it works for me.

    Did you put JUST this URL, nothing else added:

    http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/e/e6/Eve_Torres_Tribute_to_the_Troops_2010.jpg

    into the option box which says 'I have my own pic:'

    Hey it works. The problem was 'http://' was already written on the form, but while copying the url, I copied 'http://' again. That's why I was having the problem. Thanks anyway.

    Oh really? That's great. Are you Bangladeshi?

    Yep, grew up in, and living in, the UK though. What about you? Born and raised in Bangladesh? Which town are you from?

    I've been back there a couple of times, once as kid and another time about 17. It's so hot there, got to the exit of the plane (with air conditioning etc) and BAM! I could feel humidity/pressure and heat on my whole face.

    Yes I was born and raised there and I am Bangladeshi. I live in Dhaka.  It's so good to know that there is a Bangladeshi in the forum. I won't feel lonely now.

    Bangladesh...


    Bangladesh is very close to me  Rubaya., Many on web think that is my country.,

    Rubaya is a beautiful name and I am sure you know where it comes from

    "Whether at Naishapur or Babylon,
    Whether the Cup with sweet or bitter run,
        The Wine of Life keeps oozing drop by drop,
    The Leaves of Life keep falling one by one."


    So what is the problem with Science subjects?

    Who calls you a prostitute, mother?
    Who spits at you?
    Perhaps you were suckled by someone
    as chaste as Seeta.


    Kazi Nazrul Islam..Kazi Nazrul Islam...Kazi Nazrul Islam

    I am the burning volcano in the bosom of the earth,
    I am the wild fire of the woods,
    I am Hell's mad terrific sea of wrath!
    I ride on the wings of lightning with joy and profundity,
    I scatter misery and fear all around,
    I bring earth-quakes on this world! “(8th stanza)” I am the rebel eternal,
    I raise my head beyond this world,
    High, ever erect and alone!



    with best wishes

    I have bad grades in science subjects. But in arts subjects like Bangla and English, I have 'A'. That's why I took English.
