Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

    GCO, is it possible to put a limit on the size of pictures being added to threads, so that they don't stretch the pages sideways??
  2. Use the frigging scroll bar ya miserable [email protected]!!

    Some people aren't as obviously adept as you, oh guru of all things binary, and may not be ABLE to shrink a picture down so that it fits on your massive 6 inch screen!

  3. And a Happy New Year to you .


    :D :D :D

    Miserable bast*rd
    My pooter skills extend just beyond being able to switch it on and off, its just bloody annoying scrolling across on every post after a big pic is posted, perhaps one of you experts can suggest something that automatically adjusts the pic to the max size to fit.

    And a Happy New Year to you, now F.O. :thumright: :dwarf: :thumright:
  5. If you upload using phpyobucket it will resize the pics before they are stored to about 400 X 500 pixs


    and appy new ano yo all you miserable old bar stewards out there to you young wipper snappers, I do not talk to OD's.
  6. It isn't the uploading Nutty mate, its the viewing he has snags with.

    Janner mate, are you using FireFox or T'Interweb Explorer?

    I use Firefox and don't have a problem viewing pictures. Or maybe its the 22 inch widescreen :)

    I'm on IE, its just a pain in the arris when photos are mega sized and it throws the whole thread out, as I say I would have thought it would be possible to limit the download size so that this doesn't happen

    At risk of being accused of being a patronising, self-serving tosser this year as much as last (and who could argue?)...

    Janner, have you tried pressing "ctrl" the "up arrow" above it and the "hyphen" to minimize the screen font so it fits onto your Sinclair Spectrum screen?

    I use the above, but with the "+" sign, rather than the hyphen, to make the font bigger for the hard of hearing, which is handy too.

    I'll get my coat...[​IMG]

    Patronising Tossers the lot of you. :pukel:
    I will type this slowly for those among you that are hard of hearing :threaten:
    Look at this thread
    On my 17" one the writing goes off the end of the page, what I am suggesting is that by keeping the pics to a smaller size this wouldn't happen :thumright: :dwarf: :thumright: :rendeer:
    NS that does nothing on my set up :rambo:
  10. Ninja you self serving patronising Tosser

    Is this the same as what the F11 key does? Width - girth can often be as big a problem as length !

    I do agree with Janner's post - I get p!ssed off with having to scroll sideways and you dont get all the picture at the same time either.

    Ah, that's better!

    Janner, are you running two Sinclairs side by side to achieve 17"?

    Always happy to be a hinderance. :dwarf:

    Sorry didn't realise you were talking about screen size :lick: :lick: :lick:
  13. It all depends on the pic.

    How many (including you Janner) mank when there is a young lady of not good character in some state of undress? you know getting her kit off.

    Everyone would mank about that being a thumbnail size.
  14. Download FireFox. End of problem
    Tossers, the lot of ya!
  15. I use Safari. An excellent internet viewing platform. The widescreen is probably your best aid, Lamri. I rarely have problems at home (mines 23 inches) but the one at work is another matter entirely (that's only 17 inches).
  16. I only got it for playing games online [​IMG]

    Oi, Lofty, I use firefox too (because IE is so bloody annoying because it always directs you to the MSN homepage, regardless of your selected homepage).

    Erm, other than that, I concur.
  18. My IE 7 doesn't.

    How did you manage that? Every time I re-set my homepage, it reverted to MSN.

    Probably just me, but I tried in vain to change it many times, hence Firefox.
  20. Stick with Firefox mate, much, much better :)
