you know, I really support this BB and have never posted a personal sig pic that had any bandwidth stealing size to it until 911. I found a Great pic of OL' Glory flyin from the Snort Board and Pasted it in (as did many others) Now I've been in the Field (Yakima Training Center) for the past 3 weeks sharpening my skills as an American Soldier and preparing myself and my unit to do our jobs effectively. I get home, crack open beer, log onto my favorite BB to get back in touch, only to find out that I not only can't read but have contracted a disease that makes me post reverse rainbows under my name......All I gotta say is.....WHAT THE FU(K !!!! I fight for Civil Liberties and freedom but this is just kickin a fellow Cruiser owner in the nads when he's in Real World (tm) I'm not asking for any favors Pirates, just a little consideration for us folks who (from time to time) experience media blackouts.

It happened to me too, but not because I can't read, I just didn't remember how many bytes are in a Kbyte. I was 600 bytes over because I thought it was 1240 bytes per K and it turns out to be 1024. What do you expect from a pinhead? All you have to do is shrink your picture.

Yeah it happened here too.

It would be nice if we could use slighlty larger files for the sig pic. We would have a greater range of usable stuff. I do understand the problems with bandwidth though.

I used the same pic but changed it from a jpeg to a gif that reduced it. Not as crisp but still there. My problem is, I shoot at 1600 x 1200 with he digi so reducing the res of the pics is a little more difficult.

With a flag you might try reducing the colors
and still get the same end result.

Good luck <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

SIXGUN,

Back in the early seventies I spent some time at Yakima Firing Center as it was called then. I remember the baracks were pretty run down then. What a rattle snake infested hell hole. I hope they have fixed the place up for you guys since then. If the Corral is still in business have a <IMG SRC="smilies/beer.gif" border="0"> for me. Best wishes and I know you will make your country and the state of Washington proud.

Thanks guys.....I think.. <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> Dan the Corral is renamed the Oasis, but our Squadron 1-14 CAV isn't allowed to drink when we are up there. I was pissed because I would have fixed the flag thing in a flash had I known about it, or been able to log on to the net, I didn't need a poster from a gay pride parade to figure it out <IMG SRC="smilies/rainbow.gif" border="0"> anyway, no harm done besides me looking stupid for ?? many weeks.

Hey thanks for clearing that up for me Jeff, I wouldn't want folks thinkin that I smoke poles and play butt darts (especially my wife) <IMG SRC="smilies/rolleyes.gif" border="0"> I have been known to be a <IMG SRC="smilies/clown.gif" border="0"> on certain occasions (usually when beer is involved) and I do try to diseminate the most accurate info I can get my hands on or remember from personal experience. But when it comes to geting the info strait or trying a mod that will cost big bucks, I defer to the moderator of this little section of cyber space..You.
Btw the FJ60 rear end is working out nicely, and I put the innards that I stripped from it into my old 40 rear axle which I'm going to ship to my Dad. In December we're going to replace his front and rear axles out of his 67 FJ with later model (disc brake front) axles. Should be a pretty simple job, the only sticky part will be matching a master cylinder up to it.

also take note that it is done by a automatic program not one of us going into your profile and doing it. it was done because it was taking to much time to keep checking on all 7000 + members to make sure nobody was hogging bandwidth
