Ok, here's the first suggestion/idea: Some kind of free web service where images can be stored, then linked to from here.. Of course, some kind of security would need to be in place to avoid the predictable misuse by the less than honorable..
I'm looking for a server with no time limits. Something that will remain invisible.. Just serve the files, no additions, no entanglements, no adds.. Don't need huge file limits, great bandwidth, extra bells and whistles. Just the facts...
Another option is to encourage people to set up their own "free" accounts via Flickr or Google or WebShots or other such websites where they can upload photos of their own projects ...
And then link from here to their photos. ( to do so, simply pull up a photo from their own collection, go up to the address line & highlight / copy that line and then paste it into a message posted here in a thread ).
A down-side of taking this approach is that if a member closes out their Flickr or Google or WebShots account, then the link from the thread to their photo(s) will be broken / unusable.
I'm a professional photographer & have used the above idea often when making photos available to a large group of people and it works well ... and is "free". To see how it works, click on :
To create that link above, I typed the web address, highlighted it and then clicked on the little globe button on line 2, third button above.
When I start the final build on my (modified) rocket, I plan to post the photos along with the other photo albums which are there.
Setting up such accounts are _easy_ and convenient & would go a long way to making photos available on an as-needed basis to other RH Forum members and without cost to the RH Forum.
P.S. be aware, tho, that any presumed "copyright" you have to a photo is, for all practical purpuses, relinquished any time you post a photo to a public forum so don't post anything you don't want others saving / printing / using as they see fit.

I've had good experience with photobucket.com along the same lines. Actually, if you paste the img source code in, the images should be viewable from here. I can't try it from the internet server I'm on...photobucket is blocked, but I'm pretty sure that should work.
Thanks a lot for all the helpful information on here. Its been an awesome resource to have available.
Oh.. you gotta use the square brackets, ( [ ] ) but the code looks like this: <img> www.cobcottage.com/files/images/michael.jpg</img> It's BBC code, not html.. Simpler to use, though not as powerful. Remember to use the proper closing statement, include the full path.

daniel: in my experience as I am working now on something of that nature, I have thought of making a heat exchanger and distributing the heat through vents using a slower fan. Now after a few years I realize that mass heaters give out primarily radiant heat, for

vesuvius: Do any of you have experience with using the glass from home oven doors on a rocket stove? I'd like to have a viewing port on my stove but don't want to fork out for new ceramic glass. Any thought as to whether it would take the heat of a rocket stove?
