YAY! My site is back! www.geocities.com/shadowstar_freakboy/futuramaguide.html
The stuff will still remain at Scan Art Central and CGEF, but this have a snazzy design and is seperated into seasons. Even though there are only new ones for Season 1, the others will be done soon!

comment:  resize your thumbnail images much much lower...each thumbnail is aprox 99k, and the page once loaded is 700k, which takes about 3 minutes to load on a 56k modem...  so i took the original image you had (the big one) and resized it to 200x114 and saved as jpg, which made the file 7k and made it VERY unpixlated, meaning the pic looks better than the 90k version.


so, here's how you do that... go download irfranview from download.com, believe me, this is the best basic image editor there is.  Once you downloaded it and installed it, open an image with it, go to image>resize/resample and  check new size and put 200 x 114 (or just do 200 in width and let it auto do the height, then go to file > save as > and once the pop up box comes up, go to "options" and make the quality 70%.  If its at 70% you dont lose any quality, it may actually make it look better.  then save it as jpg, not gif, and youre done!  do that with all your images ;-)


and by doing this, youll lose those fucky error messages on geoshitties that says you ran out of bandwidth usage.

Oh, netfirms are perfect (sarcasm here) for a site where you are using images of 236kb+ considering their file limit is 256, you'd be cutting it very close...

Well, I'm used to Geocities, so I might as well stick with it, no matter how crappy it is. Also bart182, thanks a ton for the InfranView tip. I had it downloaded, but I didn't know it could resize pictures. Now, I'm putting up the new mini files, each only 28KB. Sweet!

If you know a bit about tables, try slicing your images into two or three equal parts, so you won't have to worry about uploading/downloading big files.
