Right, that's me, quite the journalistic sleuth. What I did, see, was open my e-mail from Honda' s racing PR arm, and scroll to the bottom--an there's the fotos... all in a day's work...

JPGs in ZIPs? Not a smart move...

> Is wallpaper the same as a screen saver?

> Someday I shall learn more about computerspeak.

Dear MO,

not just computerspeak, but some other things too...

Don't you know that JPG is a compressed image format. :)

And beyond that - its compression is way more efficient on bitmap images than ZIP, so there is absolutely no reason to ZIP compress (already compressed) JPG files. As you may notice - there is absolutely no space saving (even a marginal overhead!), and it introduces one more step (unzipping) in the download process, which may perhaps confuse less savy users.

Other than that - great riding, awesome photos!

Regards,

Dean

Yes, but the .zip on the end forces a download instead of just loading into the browser and then saving the file from there, thus, people have to download them and unzip instead of flipping through MO eating bandwidth looking at 3500x2400 pixel pictures...

Clone thumbnails

In thumbnails view type page the third Valencia and second Phillip Island thumbs are the same, and the first thumbnail brakes the page formatting, it's in full size.

Please tell whomever composed the article that Biaggi rides a Yamaha for the Marlboro team and the bike is Red. Alex Barros rides for West Honda Pons and his bike is a black RC211v.



Given this. It appears that the pictures in Round 16 and Round 15 are mislabed and should say Barros_Rossi.... :D

From the news item: If your name is Alex Barros, you kick ass too, but you'll probably have to wait till next year to get a dedicated wallpaper page. Sorry dude.

It seems that if your name is Barros, you will have to wait till next year to even get proper credit under your own name. Biaggi indeed!

Nice pix, but a little better formatting would have made things much better.



1) The thumbnails should have been presented on the page (instead of links to thumbnails) saving extra steps for relatively minor additional download time.



2) Don't zip jpegs (no real savings, but extra step incurred to unzip)

Well done guys! I said it before (Duc999 comments) and I'll say it again, Big pics are WHERE it's at. Keep them coming!



I only have one suggestion to make:



Thumbnails. It's a pain to click on each pic to check it out. Gotta have the Tnails.



Thanks!

Inconel

It was your choice. If you look, you'll see a link to the thumbnail preview version at the top of the listings.

Love it keep the wallpapers coming

Exellent. Feel free to add your MO logo, as long ast it is tastefully done. Seriously its a good advertising tool. I make screensavers and posters and I proudly display them at work and at home. If it has you MO logo, it will generate hits. mcnews.com.au does it all the time so does mcusa and motogp.com
