  40. and
  41. <a href="credits/070.html">"Falling Toward Apotheosis"</a>
  42. are online.
  43. <p>
  44. A glitch in all the credits pages has been fixed; this should make
  45. the credits look a lot better under Microsoft Internet Explorer.
  46. (For the technically minded, the problem was that the alignment
  47. from the preceding &lt;p&gt; tag was being carried over into a
  48. &lt;pre&gt; block.)

  69. for season four is in place. (Select the "Background" link from an

  71. including, that episode.)
  72. <p>
  73. The
  74. <a href="making/effects.html">Effects</a>

  198. Lots of little changes all over the Guide today. I took the day off
  199. work to spend plowing through some of my E-mail backlog. I've
  200. gotten through 220 messages so far; sadly, that's not even half the
  201. backlog, but I'll attempt to catch up before season four begins.
  202. Please bear with me if you notice something is out of date -- it's
  203. almost undoubtedly on my to-do list already, and more mail about it
  204. will only slow me down further!

  207. <dd>
  208. I'll be out of town until October 21, so if you don't see pages
  209. getting updated over the weekend, that's why.

  245. Some of you have noted that the Guide isn't using inline JPEGs any
  246. more. They'll be back! The method I was using to choose between
  247. JPEGs and GIFs turned out to be too heavy a load on the server.
  248. Luckily, we'll be installing a faster machine in the next couple
  249. of weeks. And, spare time permitting, I'll shortly be implementing
  250. a more efficient way of doing the picture selection. The JPEGs
  251. will return when the first of those two things happens. Thanks
  252. for your patience.

  439. We have started putting JPEG versions of some of our inline images
  440. in place alongside the GIF versions. Our server should automatically
  441. feed you an image type your browser can handle; if you find you're
  442. getting garbage or a broken-image icon where you used to get a
  443. picture, please let us know. The change will be an ongoing process
  444. over the next several weeks. JPEG provides significant savings in
  445. file size, and thus download time, for some images; it also looks
  446. much better in many cases, especially on 16-million-color displays.
  447. <p>
  448. Not all images will be JPEGged, just those that benefit either in
  449. appearance or size. That means most of the navigational icons will
  450. remain GIFs even for people who can handle inline JPEGs.
  451. <p>
  452. This feature will probably not be available on mirror sites, which
  453. will continue to serve up GIF images.
