Hi everyone.

You may have noticed that the Animations sometimes didn’t seem to include all the days images. Not sure why that was happening, seems to be a bug in the software I was using to create the animated GIFs.

So, I have switched to Quicktime movies instead… they are much smaller (quicker to download), with no loss of quality, which is great. I can also produce three versions, including a small version for cellphones or modem connections.

You will be able to see the 3 versions on the days animation page. You need Apple Quicktime or iTunes w/Quicktime installed. If you don’t have that, download it here.

To create the animations, I have to manually download the images to my computer, and upload the movies back. So the days animation might take a little longer to appear.

Enjoy!
