Piss Off Puters With Giant Images! 

PLEASE accept my most humble apologies for the massive image you encountered on my web site, http://rriverstone.com!

This is one of the weird things about being on MSNTV. That image loads in less than 10 seconds for me. It's because I'm on a network, and have all the force and power of Billy Gates' toys to pass a melon through the eye of a needle.

Another problem with images and MSNTV: we can't view sources of pages, unless we go to another tool website to read the details or source codes.

I had no idea that image was as large as the Sears Tower. I should have looked it up at an online source viewer, at http://webscissors.com , etc.

But it's been...oh, two years, maybe since I messed with images much larger than my wiggle worms.

I also forget to add width and height dimensions into my HTML coding, which drives some computers crazy.

I'm having to relearn HTML. Gag. But I'll get it.

I went to Image Magick http://magick.net4tv.com/ and did the following: resized, reduced colors, dithered and otherwize beat to death that hidious monster.

I THINK I've reduced it to 1/4 its original size. It's still big, but you don't have to rent an extra apartment for it to live in anymore.

Does it load better now, or do you all still want me tarred and feathered?

MSNTV is the dangedest contraption ever plugged into a wall!

Bear with me. I've only recently ventured out to communicate with the puter world, and I still think like a webtv user.

I'll get there.
