Wow! I know I tend to make a big deal out of the tidbits, but, this is just amazing. And I got it all weekend too! What an honor! I'd like to thank the Academy, my parents, Oprah, and most of all, Nitrozac and Snaggy!

This was just the pick-me-up that I needed since I've come down with my cold, and seeing as I got a whole 3 hours of sleep last night! Thank you all, once again. ::sniff:: <<----that's the cold talking

Even MORE tidbity goodness!!!

Wow! I have chills (although that's probably just from my cold). On a related note...did anyone else notice that I make a whole bunch of posts on Thursday? I just was in a posting mood, I guess. Man, this is so cool!

Nayt, you need to start your own thread in order to get a tidbit. I'm suprized by this fact, but, I have noticed that, even with your multitude of posts, it's very hard to find any threads that you have started.

As for me.....I did it again!

Again, I'm honored! Thank you Nitrozac and Snaggy! ::sniff:: (Oh yeah, I found out something interesting about a runny nose...if you ask for it, I will post it.)

Cool, I've resorted to making hard copies of the page (or two) in which I made the tidbits. I would have loved to have my thread make the tidbits, but I'll manage just fine. But I'm content to be in the SF ads.

OK, now I'm getting WAY too carried away with this! Much more of this and I'll wind up creating a Temporal Tidbit Loop™. Anyway, here we are again...

Here we have a textbook example of when not to use lossy compression.

Try saving those screen shots as PNG instead of JPG. That way you won't have those horrible smearing/speckling artifacts. If your software can't do PNG, and if you don't give a rat's ass about software patents, then use GIF.

I have to say: PNG BAH! Not everyone can read PNG files (yet) and I am one to make sure that everyone can read what I put out there for speculation. As far as choosing JPG over GIF, JPG gave me such amazingly smaller files (espically for something that isn't very important) that I just decided to go with the lossy compression, you can still tell that I got a tidbit in there!

I don't know how to put the whole picture of the tidbits, heh, so I just copied and pasted,....good 'nough!

Forum tidbits: Charisma reports a story of death and the rising thereafter in The Death of my iBook, ... Nitrozac alerts us to the baby geese cam , (pics of the geese are here), ... Twinkle Toes confesses she is Aggressive and defensive! , ... and Iain-F tells how love triumphed despite a trans-Atlantic relationship! (his story is in Janeway's thread of geekette loneliness...)
And in SuperFan Clubhouse Tidbits... DigitalBill ponders Space... It's really big , ... and Nitrozac tells of the Mac Genius Cop , ... are you missing it?

This is a big celebration for me! SO YAY FOR ME ! And I only created that topic yesterday...oh, the memories...

Looks much better in .GIF than it does as a .JPG, too.
