Ok, I'm gonna show my ignorance here...............how do these guys get these GIFs on the avitar section? Tony had a cute GIF called check out these gluts and I tried to save it in my documents and it just saved a picture and not the moving part.

Thanks for helping one who is computer challenged.

First check to see that you got the entire set of frames (pics).
GIFA files work like a fast slide show. The total
file is 960 or so KB. Right click on the icon then click properties.
to check the size.
This file does do something wierd on my win 98 machine.
It will call up a ZIP file packer program as its application.
The alt text section says it does have errors.

Opens up fine if you force open it in Irfanview.

Right click the file then click on save as - save the file to your desktop or mydocs area - it doesn't matter. Just make sure the file extension is .gif
File works fine in winxp - sorry I don't have any older windows computers running at the moment - sold them all.

If it helps, the attached file is the gif file I saved. I would imangine you have to use a image editing software to shrink this file down to be able to use it as an avatar.

Have fun - JE
