yeah... I'm getting that, too

When I get a picture that displays, the code for that looks like this:

<img width="151" height="145" border="0" alt="Lord of the Rings Tolkien" src="http://pe1850b.theonering.net/torn-images/slides_dyn/slide_107.jpg">

When I get the broken image, the code looks like this:

<img width="151" height="145" border="0" alt="Lord of the Rings Tolkien" src="http://pe1850b.theonering.net/torn-images/slides_dyn/Thumbs.db">

Thumbs.db is the file Window creates to use as a thumbnail for that folder. It is the sort of file that is hidden on an individual's system if one chooses it in options. (Hide system files)

But if you copy that folder and send it somewhere else, the Thumbs.db file is copied along with all the other files and sent along with all the other files in the folder.

When I upload folders onto my website using ftp, that Thumbs.db file will show up in those online folders.

I think the website code is set to show all files in rotation and it's pulling up the Thumbs.db file in rotation with actual jpg images. It's not one of your images that is broken. It's a file that shouldn't be in there.
