Hi, Thanks for the color and the funny strips!
May I suggest to increase the strip size ?
in B&W size was 600 x 202 px. Now it is 560 x 174. Sometimes it is difficult to understand the joke (for instance the 'stink eye' in May 21st strip).
If you reduced size to spare bandwidth due to color introduction, then I suggest you switch from gif to png.
For instance for May 23rd strip:
"size in bytes" "strip name" "format info"
39861 2920.strip.print.gif GIF image data, version 89a, 560 x 174
34438 2920.strip.print.png PNG image data, 560 x 174, 8-bit colormap, non-interlaced
27679 dilbert2006112680423.gif GIF image data, version 89a, 600 x 202
png was created from 2920.gif using gimp.
According http://www.libpng.org/pub/png/pngapbr.html compatibility of png is good.
Remark: I don't have adobe flash, thus I get pictures. Its fine!
An opinion research company called me one time and asked if I would answer a few questions about cell phones. I agreed. The first question was, "What new features would you like to see in a new phone?" I answered, "Less features." They said "Excuse me?" I said, "Less features. Write it down. I only need my phone for talk/text/saving names/numbers. I don't need it to be an MP3 player, I don't need to browse the web, I don't need to watch t.v. on my phone when I'm driving. Keep it simple. When I buy a phone, I want it to be a phone."
For the love of all that doesn't suck, Scott, please understand the analogy. When I want to read a beloved black and white Dilbert comic strip, as I have since 1995, I go to Dilbert.com, which is gone...hopefully not forever.
Yes, change isn't always good. I'm really hoping that Scott will take a cue from our hero Dilbert and not allow "Pointy -Haired Boss" thinking to overshadow his fans' desires. Yes, I can install plug-ins, flash blockers, find or write a new web browser, develop a space-time continuum device (so I can go back to when the site was good), but wouldn't it just be easier to admit maybe this isn't working out entirely? Nothing wrong with change, but not for change sake.
