About thumbnails:
I don't know what you are dealing with there. It is easy from where I sit. Microsoft Front Page creates thumbnails with a simple click of the mouse. Do you have that option? Doesn't cost much, considering the benefits.

While I have software that creates thumbnails on my development PC, I don't have software that I can install on the webhost that can automatically take an image uploaded from a member's computer and transform it into a thumbnail. Does FrontPage provide webhost resident code modules for this purpose? Come to think of it they'd have to be in Perl, otherwise I couldn't link to them. Anyway, I'd appreciate hearing from anyone who knows of such Perl software.

Any software that can manipulate gif files includes in the price the licensing fee to Unisys. The patent expires sometime in 2004.

I share your concern about too much chaff with the wheat. Don't know what can be done about that. Free uploads tend to attract junk - just look at my Percipient avatar - Ack!

For some reason, this website is having fits tonight. It is just me? This box goes crazy every now and then and racks up a bazillion shifts, all by itself.
Lost my avatar and can't seem to get it back even though the site claims that everything is ok with it. Later perhaps. Did someone say virus?

You're way over my head on the subject of site management Percy. Good luck with it.

About the wheat and chaff analogy. Perhaps you could sort submissions according to what you deem useful and/or helpful to the site. Otherwise, it would surely turn into a debacle.

Hmm. I seem to have lost my marbles. Now the file is too big?

Any chance of fixing it?

Thanks.

Well, you're in good company, then, because few here still have their marbles. Oh, wait a minute, you mean your avatar.

Your marbles avatar was *way* too big. It was around 2.5 megabytes, nearly 20 times the current limit. You uploaded it before I installed the disk space checking (must take forever to upload), so rather than bothering you about it I just reduced its disk space requirements. I have a copy at home that I can restore tonight. Or, if you have any photo software, you can reduce the space requirements yourself. If you have PhotoDeluxe I can even tell you how to do it.

My avatar is the online equivalent of the big trucks you see little men driving. I hope my overcompensation isn't quite so obvious.

Admin - I like the idea of us swapping avatars. That way you're the Pointy Haired Boss, and I'm his evil assistant Catbert.

Hey, get your own Catbert avatar! Besides, it's common knowledge who the real mastermind here is and that you only let me think I'm in charge so I keep paying the bills.

I like your pointy-haired boss avatar - I looked around for a higher resolution copy and couldn't find one. I have some Dilbert books around somewhere, if I find them and I can find a good pic maybe I'll scan one in.

Oh, have to try the new smiley:

Does anyone know where I can find a better blush smiley? This one blushes fast and de-blushes slow, it should be the reverse.

Note to self: create dynamic smiley page so new ones are documented for members as they are added.

Hey Percy,

Why are so many avatars missing, including mine. I have tried repeatedly, without success, to upload. Wouldn't you know this would happen over the holiday weekend!

{Now it's made a liar of me again. Funny. All I have to do is complain, and everything works the way it should. Maybe I'm onto something?}
