When replying to a post (or creating a thread), click on 'size' in the menu bar at the top of the text box, it then gives you about four size options, when you choose 'huge' it enters the script for this with a number '4' in it, change this four to something bigger, say ten, then try it again, just keep changing the number in 'edit post' till you get what you want.

RIBase
Jo-o-ohn,
As nearly 80% of responding ribnetters have broadband, does this mean we can have a Broadbanders Corner? And put little mini-films in it for downloading by other sad-oes like me?
Would probably only take up a few 10s of gigabytes.

Just an observation

There are what 2000+ members registered here and only 57 votes?? Not very representative unless the remaining are just double/triple/quadruple entris

Yeah and can we increase the size of pics we can post here. I got a 6.1mp digital camera for Xmas and on superduper large detail level the jpg files are 18mb each

Trouble is now I need a more powerful computer than my Tesco's 600mhz Celeron,.

Movies converted to flash files aren't too bad, size wise, bit shoddy on quality, but better than nowt.
I've put a few on BM, but normally do a really shoddy one for dial-up (more compression), and a less shoddy one for BB.
