I could have posted this somewhere else, but I only listen to you guys anyway.

I'm trying to post some pics of misc. parts I have for sale. I have about 15-20 and I want them all to come up in one post. I don't know how to do that. I thought uploading them to an album on LS would allow me to do that, but I can't find how.

I know how to attach pics but it allows 5 only.

Who can help a brotha out?

Put 5 pics in one post, and 5 in the next and so on.

Dana. You need to upload the pics to some kind of internet folder or storage space. You probably have a lot of space under the account you have your website through. However you upload files to that, make a new folder and throw all your pics in there. You might do this through FTP. FTP is possible and built in to windows, and you can do it just like a folder on your computer.

Throw the pics in there and name them accordingly. Thence, go to a post in LS and hit the button that looks like a picture of a mountain. Go to the picture in the file you created under your web space and right click the file, then properties. There will be an internet address there. Copy and poaste that address back into your post and make sure it starts with http://www......

That should do it. Thats how I do mine.

Lemme know if you have available web space and Id be glad to help out further.

use photobucket

http://photobucket.com/

You can upload like 50 pics at a time, hold thousands of picture and it will give you the code to copy and paste of where you are placing your add.

So If this was on craigslist.

The picture code would be

< img src=" ( picture link here) ">

Google up basic Html.

How you typed that out made it sound like it the most complicated thing ever.
I saw his website, my guess since he is asking this question he doesn't manage the website and so he doesn't know what you are talking about.
Your way does work though and if I hosted my own site I would definitely feel higher security hosting my pictures. I see that you hosted your skiing pictures from your site.

I saw your site as well.
I'm not trying to be rude but if I was a customer and saw your website I probably would look somewhere else before calling. There are plenty of website template formats out there for free.

Photobucket is the easiet imo... And with photobucket you can order the pics the way you want in the post, and put the descriptions in between the photos, not just one mass description at the top...

We, and when I say "we" I mean my girlfriend :), manages my site. I can edit and change things, but I never remember how to FTP it all up. She would know how to do get to adding a folder as Matt explained. I'll try today through photobucket, and if that doesn't work, we'll go Matt's route.

Well thanks for the input.

A. Templates are boring, everyone else has one.
B. That business hasnt operated in over a year.
C. I was remodeling the site when I moved and never finished it, so half ass it stayed. And I still get 3-4 calls per week that I refer to a friend.
D. Cant win them all!

Well I haven't gotten around to trying to get the photos set up another way. And don't feel like doing it right now. Let me know if you can view them here Parts for sale (http://www.lawnsite.com/album.php?albumid=125) Let me know if the link works. I can't find where to make the picture group public.

The copper fittings might be taken by Matt, and I haven't figured a price for the others. If anyone interested, let me know. And yes I know some of it is crap in Mike's eyes.

It is primarily stuff from the stocked van we bought, that we will never use.

Curious assortment. Lots of stuff I never see. That last item intrigues me, as it would be something I never had to replace in a Buckner brass valve.

I've never even seen a Buckner valve. ::edit:: until I saw the plastic ones I have for sale in that group.

Buckner would have been fairly common where they had distribution set up. The brass valves might need service only rarely. Sometimes just from buildup of hard-water deposits. Never saw a plastic Buckner valve. Those Febco valves would only be seen where RPZs are used.

Buckner was a player for a while up north, especially in the spec market;
not a bad product, at that time.

Buckner was really a pretty good one-stop shop for irrigation, way back when, not that I know from their controllers. Rotors, sprays, valves, and PVBs. Those RPK22 kits are almost overkill, being that a diaphragm change could cure most stuck valves.

I wonder if anyone is remaining in the business of providing "coarse-thread" popup bodies for the old brass nozzles, some of which were never duplicated in plastic or fine-thread brass.

Most assuredly not. That would be way to much to ask for. We used the W*M Thirty series for years with the 400 series brass nozzles and the cool adapter that enabled us to use the 100 series on hi-pops. I miss those days. :cry:

I wouldn't doubt that Storm/Buckner could produce them if they wanted to. When they briefly owned the Imperial line, they had them in the catalog. It comes down to whether they still have the tooling.

Having them in the catalog and being able to ship was the end of my Buckner/ Storm/Imperial relationship. Jeez, I miss the 6' brass f.c. nozzles.

You mean those ones that threaded onto a 1/2-inch riser? I think they were part number 122H or 122F

Nope, it was a threaded adapter that screwed into the small thread 30 series pop-ups, could use the thicker thread "lipstick" 100 series nozzles so crap could not clog the nozzle in planting beds.

Those Buckner 122H flat sprays were cool. Very low flow. You could ring a house foundation with them, and back-water the shrubs.

So that would mean prior to 1964 Boots (modern day drip in the U.S.)? Since you have only been in the biz for 19 years, that would mean you have died and been reincarnated. :laugh:

Even if you mark your start date at 1989 when Jain irrigation stepped into the game, your still not going to make the cut given you started working in the biz in 1990.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Drip_irrigation#History

The modern technology of drip irrigation was invented in Israel by Simcha Blass and his son Yeshayahu. Instead of releasing water through tiny holes, blocked easily by tiny particles, water was released through larger and longer passageways by using velocity to slow water inside a plastic emitter. The first experimental system of this type was established in 1959 when Blass partnered with Kibbutz Hatzerim to create an irrigation company called Netafim. Together they developed and patented the first practical surface drip irrigation emitter. This method was very successful and subsequently spread to Australia, North America, and South America by the late 1960s.

In the United States, in the early 1960s, the first drip tape, called Dew Hose, was developed by Richard Chapin of Chapin Watermatics (first system established during 1964). [1] Beginning in 1989, Jain irrigation helped pioneer effective water-management through drip irrigation in India. Jain irrigation also introduced some drip irrigation marketing approaches to Indian agriculture such as `Integrated System Approach’, One-Stop-Shop for Farmers, `Infrastructure Status to Drip Irrigation & Farm as Industry.’ The latest developments in the field involve even further reduction in drip rates being delivered and less tendency to clog.


I expect some smart ass reply will follow saying something to the effect about a certain product and blah blah blah. :hammerhead:

Those are isolation valves so we can keep flow whilst testing the other and if a assembly had to be removed. Sch 80 pvc is permitted in exterior installations. The RP is in a "Hot Box".
