Might I also suggest somehow downsizing the main banner? Nearly half a mb on every page view won't help bandwidth nor those of us stuck on dial-up...

Actually I have been working on that as well, I took several images from a banner BHR posted, I was then going to move the logo in, the only problem is it won't go across and there may just be black space.

Both downsized of course, just trying to play around with what looks best, do not worry my brothers. I'm still working long and hard in the background shifty.gif

"In an Alex Ross-drawn, Paul Dini-penned thesis, psychiatrists ponder that perhaps the Joker is sane and fakes insanity to keep himself out of prison. It is suggested that he is completely in control of himself but is a savage sadist, and uses his disfigurements as an excuse to terrify and murder his victims. Ironically, the doctor who came up with this theory was Harlene Quinzel, whom Joker later transformed into his insane accomplice, Harley Quinn."

"Grant Morrison's graphic novel Asylum suggests that the Joker's mental state is in fact a previously unprecedented form of 'super-sanity', a new mode of perception to cope with the insanity of the times."

ok, well I have been working on ALOT of stuff in the background, but since this issue came up I instantly put it at the top of the list, its downsized and simple, it won't be like this forever, but its a good fix for now

Thank you for verifying. The calculation is that the JPG takes up a mere 3.7910839602160852223961225829252% of the bandwidth as the current BMP.
