... until the wheels come off.

Diaphone Jim 07-30-2020 12:08 PM

There must be something I am missing.
The new GIf of the wheel coming off took about 60 to 70 seconds to download both yesterday and today.
That is for about 3 to 4 seconds.
I tried it on Chrome and got it in about 40 seconds.
I tried some random GIFs from Google (drag mishaps just for fun) and got them in about 1 second of download for 1 second of GIF.
This seems about the same as the "old" method.
Last time I checked I was around 3mbps download.

This is not a big deal, but does tweak my curiosity.

I also learned (I think) that I should be saying jif, not gif.

No.

Jif is peanut butter.

So, that's that.

And tomorrow there will be a test on all the concepts covered here:

I use the Tex-Mex pronunciation incorporating a Spanish "g", which sounds like "h" (e.g. Gila monster sounds like HEE-lə monster); so, "gif" is said as "hif".

I prefer Skippy to Jif.

xoxoxoBruce 08-01-2020 02:37 PM

No, I'm not going to texmex or listen to the nerd that wrote it.
We the people say hard G from graphic the way god intended. http://cellar.org/2016/patriot.gif


Fake it till you make it...

So, you prefer Skippy to Jif too.

xoxoxoBruce 08-02-2020 04:24 PM

No I prefer JIF, but that has nothing to do with GIF.

Really!

Quote:

The creators of the format pronounced the word as "jif" with a soft "G" /dʒɪf/ as in "gym". Steve Wilhite says that the intended pronunciation deliberately echoes the American peanut butter brand Jif, and CompuServe employees would often say "Choosy developers choose GIF", spoofing this brand's television commercials.
:D

Do you really think Americans give a rats ass how Louis Chevrolet pronounced his name?
