- what: log of ICQ conversation between Bubba and Woozle
woozle 12/15/02 8:18 AM The MP3 issue is something I wanneta talk
about... Remember that idea of having an
"audio trademark" at the end of every track?
That's part of my idea. It goes on a lot
longer than that and I haven't written it all
down... but the long and the short is, I think
giving away near-CD-qual tracks contributes
greatly to word-of-mouth advertising and won't
harm unit sales.
woozle 12/15/02 1:24 PM Been typing up the audio-related idea, but
it's taking me a long time to get to the part
that explains why I think it's a good idea to
give away MP3s. We're about to go out and get
an xmas tree; we'll be back when, uh, when we
get done with that...

woozle 12/15/02 7:59 PM s
Bubba 12/15/02 7:59 PM mainly moved rock to fill mud holes so traffic
could get in and out
Bubba 12/15/02 8:01 PM i messed w/the RDA front page cuz I thought
it'd be easy enough to swap the front page
image due to feed back saying it is good and
does nothing to convey what we are saying
woozle 12/15/02 8:02 PM ok
woozle 12/15/02 8:02 PM good but useless?
Bubba 12/15/02 8:02 PM the several surveyed said that the beds image
is better on the front page
Bubba 12/15/02 8:02 PM not useless just misplaced
woozle 12/15/02 8:03 PM makes sentz
Bubba 12/15/02 8:03 PM can you fix it?
woozle 12/15/02 8:03 PM what's rong w/it?
Bubba 12/15/02 8:03 PM look at it
woozle 12/15/02 8:04 PM just the home pg?
Bubba 12/15/02 8:04 PM y
woozle 12/15/02 8:05 PM nothing obviously wrong... you want the top
homeless image aligned top-flush with the
molecule, or what?
Bubba 12/15/02 8:05 PM y and is the script for image size right
woozle 12/15/02 8:06 PM nothing is resizing when I shrink the window,
so I guess not.
Bubba 12/15/02 8:06 PM thot so
woozle 12/15/02 8:12 PM well, for one thing, 155 kb is too durn large
for a home page image. That's your .sepia.
woozle 12/15/02 8:12 PM 61 kb is a big big too (your .sm. image)
woozle 12/15/02 8:12 PM bit big
Bubba 12/15/02 8:12 PM limit?
woozle 12/15/02 8:13 PM Look at ftanims -- it's 18kb
woozle 12/15/02 8:13 PM And the supersm is 3k
woozle 12/15/02 8:13 PM tho that's probably a bit _too_ small,
Bubba 12/15/02 8:21 PM playing w/images
woozle 12/15/02 8:22 PM messing with html
Bubba 12/15/02 8:22 PM can't get it any smaller than 300k
Bubba 12/15/02 8:22 PM Sepia
Bubba 12/15/02 8:22 PM and it looks really washed out
woozle 12/15/02 8:23 PM something's wrong, then.
woozle 12/15/02 8:23 PM let me take a look.
Bubba 12/15/02 8:23 PM I drop it to 156 colors and it's still 294k
woozle 12/15/02 8:24 PM that's not how you reduce a jpg
woozle 12/15/02 8:24 PM always use 24-bit for jpgs
Bubba 12/15/02 8:24 PM was gonna go gif
woozle 12/15/02 8:24 PM that'll make it bigger
Bubba 12/15/02 8:24 PM compression not color qty?
woozle 12/15/02 8:25 PM gif is good for line art and stuff with very
few shades; this is a continuous-tone photo,
even if it's b&w
woozle 12/15/02 8:25 PM jpg is best for shades of color or gray
Bubba 12/15/02 8:25 PM k
woozle 12/15/02 8:25 PM turn up the jpg compression just a bit
Bubba 12/15/02 8:25 PM k
woozle 12/15/02 8:25 PM (or turn down the quality)
Bubba 12/15/02 8:25 PM rt
woozle 12/15/02 8:25 PM If it's at 95, try 80... I'm not sure what
scale yr img editor uses.
Bubba 12/15/02 8:33 PM it was set to 15, I changed it to 30 w/no sig
loss of img
Bubba 12/15/02 8:33 PM also the file in expolre looks different size
that when it's open in PSP
woozle 12/15/02 8:33 PM it's also too big. I've shrunk it to about 500
px wide, but it could probably be 600.
Bubba 12/15/02 8:34 PM dad gummit
Bubba 12/15/02 8:35 PM pardon my franch
woozle 12/15/02 8:35 PM that's "d'adue guillaumette"
Bubba 12/15/02 8:35 PM I sit straightened the fuck right out
woozle 12/15/02 8:36 PM oui oui, but please go behind a troui if you
Bubba 12/15/02 8:36 PM or right the fuck out
woozle 12/15/02 8:38 PM w.thePooh.time... back innabit
Bubba 12/15/02 8:38 PM rt o
woozle 12/15/02 9:08 PM bk
Bubba 12/15/02 9:08 PM k
Bubba 12/15/02 9:20 PM do you think we need to do anything to the new
words on the front page?
Bubba 12/15/02 9:21 PM L is saying they are in need ofa more festive
woozle 12/15/02 9:22 PM If you've got any christmassy images, you
could tone 'em down and put them as a
background or something... bladepro earth in
red and green? Then pastel it?
woozle 12/15/02 9:22 PM Anything I can think of would take longer than
it would seem to be worth, but it's up to what
you feel like messing with.
Bubba 12/15/02 9:24 PM rt
Bubba 12/15/02 9:24 PM I'll do an image w/red cursive letters w/a
