lol.

When I used the downforeveryoneorjustme site, it said it was just me.  So, it looks like there's something going on, but it's not effecting all servers / routers.

what do you want me to tell you ::) it still loads here... that's getting weird ??? ... sounds like as said above it's just some servers involved for those those who can't access the site.

Sorry for the large pic David.  ;)

So, I see there are a few others that agree that it's either slow or down?

Changing the file image type that you save it too on creation makes a large (pun intended) difference to the file size, .gif images are generally much smaller than .jpg and .png image file types for the same image. For the likes of forums or other web sites the .gif image quality is more than adequate (256 colours).

For me on dial-up slow is a way of life and generally I see no difference ;D

Well, I remember when they presented the new website, that they have a form of redirection to point visitors to the nearest server location.  Apparently for users outside of the US, their server is working fine (except India @sorry NMB!).  The one that I'm visiting must have a case of the mondays...

You know, I sat there at the "Save" screen for several seconds thinking that I should change it to gif.  But then I thought, it's mostly black but it has characters on it, and some degree of shading.  I figured saving it as a jpg would actually be smaller.  I guess I should have thought otherwise.

I know that sometimes when I save images that have a lot of detail as a gif, it's actually a lot larger than if I saved as jpg.  I just guessed this one wrong this time.

Oh well, I'll blame it on the meds that I'm on because I'm sick!  ;D
