[REBOL] Re: funny...

I guess you mean http://rebol.com/reblets.html That's because there are 15 images weighing in at 377Kb I suspect they were made from REBOL directly. Thus legible but not optimized for size. {yet another reason why rebol needs CALL/SHELL bundled - for access to ImageMagick on servers} Out of curiosity I ran them through Fireworks 4 batch process.. GIF [Web216] >>> 306Kb JPEG [smaller] >>> 172Kb One could do better in terms of size/quality with some playing around. The JPEGS are fuzzier. Photos are easy to shrink [3-7Kb], but it's a tricky tradeoff getting text to read well small sometimes. I think it would be better if the page was wider format and just had a big juicy dense array of _smaller_ reblet images with minimal Title/captions. Then have clickthroughs on each to give full description and larger screen shots to focus on, preferably with some sort of rollovers to help explain. Plus PREV/NEXT buttons or some such to let one take the tour through the reblet apps. ..so much for backseat web design.. ./Jason
