    Re: Lounge Overload?

    It's always possible at any given moment. May we assume that you tried again and "got right in?" (You could be a nice guy and edit that attachment down to a less humongous size)

    C'mon, put yer guns back in yer holsters. It was just a l'il 27kb PNG file. Well short of the 100kb max file size allowed.

    Re: Lounge Overload?

    On that point, because of the way we fit pictures in tables, it helps to shrink the application window to 800x600 (or smaller) before doing the screen capture (and trimming off the desktop). It's mostly okay on the web site where a post can get wide "individually" without affecting the others, but for anyone receiving the e-mail digest in HTML format, every single message for the day will be widened, causing much horizontal scrolling.

    You'll notice that the url is just http://www.wopr.com/cgi-bin/w3t/ . That's the reason you got that screen. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    Re: Lounge Overload?

    Thanks Jefferson, I actually did try to reduce the image to 50% and 75%, but in both instances, all of the text became unreadable. That's the real reason I left it as it was. I didn't think of changing my screen resolution first. I can see now where that would've helped.

    Re: Lounge Overload?

    Yep! I was able to duplicate the "overload" again and again by using my browsers [Back] button. As long as I use the navigation controls within the lounge, it doesn't happen at all.

    Re: Lounge Overload?

    I keep my screen resolution on 1280x800 (wide aspect screen) but resize the application window itself and use Alt+PrintScreen to capture only the active window. Each situation requires its own artistic choices, but give that one a try next time.
