News of the Weird

This is what everybody at Lightspeed Software Lives For! News of the Weird is a weekly syndicated column by Chuck Shepherd containing synopses of bizarre news stories reported in various sources and is carried in over 200 newspapers. There is also an "electronic edition" both in the form of a weekly electronic mailing list and an archive accessible via the WWW and ftp. Read this week's column to get an idea of what it is all about. (Note that the online edition is delayed by 2 weeks to give papers a chance to publish it first.)

We Know How to Make Clickable Images and Cool Guy Graphics Too

Every graphic artist who gets hold of a web page wants to prove how cool they are by putting clickable images and cool guy graphics everywhere. Well, the May 22, 1995, issue of Interactive Age backed up our position that smaller is better. They said that one of the biggest gripes Internet users have is the time large GIF image files take to load. Clickable images are also cool, but they're problematic because of image size. We just want you to know we know how to do all the cool stuff so if you've got the time (or a T-1 connection), we've got the graphics.
