    Default Why use an image?

    Just a feasibility check -- why not do it with a normal number (ye ol ASCII art) and save both a server request and a thousand or so bytes of data?<BR><BR>--JM (never understood the appeal of the bloody things...)

    Default RE: Why use an image?

    ...well, it would be boring if we all liked the same things!<BR><BR>the image counter would be used two-fold and served to another server rather than the same host.<BR><BR>1)To display count/position/rank information.<BR>2)To display brand logo / animated feature<BR> - as a single object<BR><BR>I don&#039t think that an extra K of data is going to kill a server when some of the raw HTML pages are 20 to 30 times that size excluding graphics.<BR><BR>3) Also, I hate not understanding how things are done! : )<BR><BR>fl1rt<BR><BR>note: thanks to your comments I&#039ve actually thought of a way around my problem - I could serve the count as straight ascii and build graphic work around it using tables and pre-rendered borders - it&#039s not the solution that I was after, but it effectively renders the same results.
