Well all, Henry has now spent over twenty-four hours in Olds. He has not had a perfectly pleasant day, but so far it's been manageable:

My apologies for the pixellated look of the pictures. I have to save the pictures about three times, and I haven't figured out how to save as a .jpg without losing quality...

Also, my apologies if they seem a little slow to load. Either brickshelf is slow right now, or my pics have more bytes than I thought, or else my computer is slow.

Assuming that all goes well (for me, if not Henry), I'll try and do a bunch more on Thursday, hopefully in greater quantities.

Enjoy!

Your pics are actually Bitmaps rather then Jpegs. Did you simply delete the extension .bmp and replace it with .jpg? That's definitely not the way to save image files as a different filetype.
You should open the file (as P5110119.BMP), play a little with the brightness and the dimensions (1280×1024 pixel are way too large, better make them 800×600), then chose in "File" -> "Save as..." and save the pic as Jpeg. While doing this you get an extra menu where you can set the compression rate to 80%. That's still good enough a quality for pics in the internet and at the same time makes the files reasonably small in terms of megabytes.

Beyond this, the you can either wait for the moderated gallery: here. Or you can use the above deeplinks and change the numbers from 0308 on consecutively up to 0324.

Enjoy!

Very cool! Looks like Henry is having fun. He sure is getting his armor rubbed off though. It is getting hard to see it.

Just a note. Henry has safely arrive in the sunny island of Singapore. He's looking cheerful but is feeling the heat due to the tropical weather. Might need to change him to some comfortable clothing before he melts in that armour.:lol:

Wiil be posting pics within the next few days.

Whew!!! He made it...

Now the onus is off me... and onto you!- to keep him safe and well-fed.

Can't wait to see his Singaporean adventures!

Oh no... not another bottleneck.
