HTML tip for Image posting...

wheat's picture

If you guys will make use of the WIDTH attribute of the IMG tag, you can keep larger images from taking over the window. Adding WIDTH="100%" anywhere in the IMG tag of any really large image will force it to use only 100% of the available space. Here's an example:

<img src="http://fish.dnr.cornell.edu/nyfish/Centrarchidae/rock_bass.jpg" width="100%" />

That will give you this:

Compare that to the full size version, and you'll see what I mean. You can also use WIDTH to limit by pixels (about 72px = 1 inch on most monitors). So, if I want that one to be only 200px wide, I'd use WIDTH="200" or WIDTH="200px" and I'd get this:

You can use any percentage or pixel value you want. Ones that are a lot bigger or smaller than the original will cause it to distort, of course. For sake of simplicity, I generally set the width and let the browser take care of the height. You'll notice that I'll occasionally edit your posts to add this attribute. BoH and Hazz should feel free to do the same.

Cheers,

Wheat

Thanks Paul!

Thanks to Paul we're getting scolded...LOL! It was worth it though.... I could ALMOST taste that Heineken.

: )

So Wheat, then I only have to use the width and the height will adjust automatically? I normally use "WIDTH" & "HEIGHT".

No scolding! Just a handy wrench for your toolkit. :)

It's your choice, Dave. You can set both width and height or you can set one and let the browser handle the other. What throws posts off here is generally images that are too wide, so adding the width="100%" attribute is the easiest fix.

That heineken fooled me. The size was given as 120x120 which would have been fine so I didn't restrict the width. For some reason though the reported size was incorrect. Oh well. There's nothing wrong with a large beer anyway. :^)

Yeah they fool me sometimes too! After I get above six they fool me into thinking I can pick up any women anywhere. Amazingly I've never been slapped. I have however been told to go fornicate myself.....hehehehe!

Dave, Dave, Dave. You need to try harder. I have been slapped, punched and even had women try and kick me in the nuts. It was good times back in the day. Heck, most of the girls/women I dated I met because I was an arse to them at first. You need to learn the fine art of being sarcastically rude without crossing into just plain rude. HAHAHAHAHA ;^P

Are you kidding me? I have had EVERYTHING you can imagine done by women I've dated. I was talking about women I JUST meet.... not the ones I've dated. That's a WHOLE other story....LOL!

Never been slapped? That's

Never been slapped? That's a good track record. Or maybe you're just around ladies who know how to deal with drunken bass players. Drunken bass players are much different than drunken guitar players and drunken drummers. Guitar players just act drunk. Drummers just get unruly. Bassists get sexy. Oh yeah.

As it happens, I've been a drunken bass player on several occasions. One of those occasions happened after a show on 6th Street in Austin at the Troubadour Saloon. We played an hour set early (around 11:00) and then proceeded to bar hop until last call. After a shot of tequila with the vocalist followed by a questionable cigarette in the alley while we were loading equipment, I ended up making out with the sound guy. My band mates filmed it. It must have been a moment to be Memorexed. I've seen the footage...the camera man (who doubles as the trumpet player when he's not preserving the drunken antics of the bass player for proseperity) shouts "gross!" as soon as the sound guy went in for the kill. The next day, I knew I had made out with someone...but I had to see the footage to determine if it was the sound guy or the door guy. I was hoping for the door guy. That was quite a night. I actually ended up leaving the Slammer at the bar. It was recovered and returned a week later. Foolish? You bet. I'm known for it.

So yes, I'm familiar with being a drunken bass player. I've never been told to go fornicate myself, but I have had plenty volunteers who want to help me with that.

So what kind of tackle were you using to reel that one in? Live bait or just a large Heineken?

When fishing for bass

When fishing for bass players, I find beer works best. For actually "bass" fish, you can't beat live bait. :)

Actually Wheat, when fishing for bass players (male or female) this is the best bait to use along with beer
