Description Dan Jacobson 2007-05-08 17:11:47 UTC
Today let's talk about
-rw-r--r-- 7881 skins/monobook/headbg.jpg

it says

"JPEGs should be used for photographs and blurry background tiles where
little of the intended look will be lost by the JPEG's compression."

That got me to playing around with jpegoptim etc. optimization
programs. Anyway, I swear you can get the same look for half the bytes.

It already looks like shit at this compression.
Comment 2 Dan Jacobson 2007-05-08 17:41:51 UTC
But it is supposed to be drifting behind words, not looked at directly.
