Meanwhile thousands of big rigs full of radioactive ceramics and narcotics, and driven by meth-crazed maniacs are flowing freely back and forth across US borders unimpeded because of NAFTA.

  Hey buddy ! I put on couple of million miles driving a "big rig" and I didn't even smoke a freekin cigarette !!!!!  And nobody I knew had anything to do with drugs unless they did something that I didn't know about,and believe me I would've known AND I would've reported them !! You sound like you think anyone with black hair and an olive complection is a terrorist for frigs sake. And by the way, you can kiss my big rig driving ass.

Dear hobiejoe,

I'm not aware of any such orders (for instance I don't see anything in the guidelines w.r.t. to image size). Could you point them out to me?

I do come across many threads with images that are wider than 510px. As a personal rule I keep them smaller than 640px wide (height is pretty much irrelevant), to prevent forum stretching which I find rather ugly.

On the other hand, maybe it's time to upgrade your hardware. Screen resolutions keep growing, and as in the professional work I do, we have to adapt along with that too. We can't still design web sites based on 640x480. You can see even RP's forum layout has changed somewhat. I could go on and on, but I think you get the point.

Sorry for any (more) inconvenience in advance.

Regards,
Richard

PS: I have never been much of a fan of going along with the lowest common denominators. {#Wink}

Will the pub still be owned and operated by you and the missus in say, the spring/summer of 2014?

 



Blimey! The missus involved with the pub? You've got to be kidding, She's far too smart for that. Won't even do my accounts.



As for 2014? No idea, but even if we don't have the pub, I know plenty of others to take you to.

You seem to be a fairly techie kind of chap. Any chance of keeping your images to 510px or less, as per standing orders?

If they don't bother me or my dogs I don't bother them.

I've been unable to drive for the past year and they've made a hive in my car. Once winter gets here and they're all dead or underground I'll clean away the hives.

Didn't mean to jack the thread... just say'n.

A couple years ago I came out of my  house and found a ~ basketball sized hornets nest under my deck.

I waited until evening when it was cool and then took care of the problem without any stings. Many will say I 'rolled over', but I just think I took a more pragmatic approach to the problem.
 
I've crossed the border many times as well, and have never gotten into trouble either. Not even when on one occasion when I made a wisecrack. Sure, I got it that he didn't like that, which was too bad for him, but that was to be expected. While I don't fear the crossing, there is simply no (longer any) need to undertake those trips.

Again, that depends on the perspective you choose to take.

Arguably he was put in that spot by someone abusing their authority. Certainly it takes more effort to fight that, and the path of least resistance is always available. However, that can also mean you'll be riding in the back of the bus for the rest of your life, because that's just the way things are.

PS: That's why, pragmatically speaking, I have no desire or need whatsoever to cross the border.
