Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

I do have a better display. In fact, if you want to have an e-argument about it, I probably have a better display than you. But here's a shocker: I don't use my desktop exclusively, sometimes I'm on a 12.1" ultra-portable laptop. Resize your pics.

Davet, what part of the Danube is that?

Turn on auto resizing on your browser. I'm viewing on a 24" or 15" monitor and would hate to have everything dumbed down to the smallest screen just because someone is using a 8" EEE PC..
