Now with HD banners

I trolled through our photo library a little bit yesterday, looking for a couple images and somehow (A.D.D. ?) ended up setting a taller banner size for the site and decided to use less compression on the images. 

I did not take the decision easily, since it does add some KB to the site, which directly effects users on slower connections. And, because of that I may not be totally set on the taller size, but with the higher percentage of broadband users, I think the time is right to boost the banner a little. It gives me a little extra room  to crop certain images and I think the result looks better for a photo banner. 

Plus, I will now be making a surprise appearance in the banner from time to time.

No, I’m not the frog waiting to be kissed! You’ll see :)
