New GIF Thread
Because Jim's connection is too slow...

Diaphone Jim 07-27-2020 11:33 AM

It works.

xoxoxoBruce 07-29-2020 12:51 AM

Of course it works...

... until the wheels come off.

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.

Jif is peanut butter.

Diaphone Jim 07-31-2020 11:31 AM

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.

Fake it till you make it...

sexobon 08-01-2020 02:46 PM

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.

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.

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