    these aren't jpg's. they open to PIF's or COM's which are dos files and will eat your shit whole.

    DO NOT open these....

    and tell you're friends they are asshats

    i dont know... i don't even know what it does. and i'm not going to run a pif on my machine to find out... lol

    email the site owner

    SIERRARIDGEFARM@aol.com

    i hope every spam bot reads that address.

    dont spam them from an account you use, cuz aol will block you....


    edit, on 2nd thought, those are not the real URL's. those are just what show... the actual files are not on either of the above sites... they go somewhere else...

    animated gifs are not supported.

    in fact, your avatar is a jpg.

    http://www.hondaswap.com/forums/uploads/av-28114.jpg

    see?


    animated gif's are not supported here. all gifs are converted to jpg. gif is a compuserve ® trademark, and software to manipulate suck images (to resize, etc) are not allowed to use their interchange format...

    hence, the onslought of PNG. but wait, yeah, ie sucks at png support.

    I thought his bling gauge was animated?

    Also, BDN's Stewie avatar is animated. As it was when I used it. And Misti's Quagmire avatar is animated.

    Explain that, Mr. Coder Scriptington. :p
