View Full Version : The banner

12-30-2004, 02:13 AM
I would like to put the banner on one of my sites and link it to the Dig Museum, just like the instruction says.

However, despite the banner being in gif. format, it becomes bmp. when I save it. Therefore it naturally doesn't move. What's wrong and how can I save it as gif.?

By the way, I love Brink in that cute hat!

Do you use the Internet Explorer? Firstly, you shouldn't. Secondly, the problem you have can be the result of various problems. The easiest to solve would be to delete the Temporary Internet Files. If you re-visit the site and it still doesn't work, just install Firefox (http://www.mozilla.org/products/firefox/).

Yes, I use Internet Explorer. My dad refuses to use anything else. However, the problem was quickly fixed by deleting the Internet files. I can't believe I didn't think of it myself. :rolleyes:

You know, Firefox doesn't have to replace the IE. On XP machines you still have to use IE for Windows Updates anyways. You could install FF, import the favorites and stuff and not make it the default browser.

You should tell your dad to read "Follow The Bouncing Malware" (part 1 (http://isc.sans.org/diary.php?date=2004-07-23), part 2 (http://isc.sans.org/diary.php?date=2004-08-23), part 3 (http://isc.sans.org/diary.php?date=2004-11-04), part 4 (http://isc.sans.org/diary.php?date=2004-11-24)). I don't know if FF could prevent that scenario from happening, but it's generally the safer browser.

Sorry, his English isn't good enough to understand that article and he doesn't believe me. He's one of those stubborn guys. And since we've never had any big trouble with IE, he doesn't think there is anything wrong with it.
