Why this website is the way it is:
If you have a
dial-up Internet connection, you may notice that the pages load slowly.
The reason is that the pictures posted here are large, by web standards
(400 pixels wide in most cases).
"Breaking the rules"
We believe that "breaking the rules" by
having lots of large pictures is justified by the nature of this site -
we tried thumbnails and they just weren't enjoyable to view! And
as so many of these pictures are not only good for teaching but
beautiful as well, we want that to come across in this
