Technical Recommendations

While every possible effort was made to insure that this site could be comfortably browsed from most Internet browsers, we do have some recommendations that may help to make your experience here more enjoyable.

For best results, use at least Netscape 2.0 or a browser which supports:

For the best possible display on your computer:

Some files on this site are very large. The exact sizes of such files are noted in kilobytes (K). Unless you are accessing this site over a local area network (CD-ROM) or over a fast Internet connection (T-1), you might avoid downloading files that are over 500K.

If you are using Netscape and you see a file you would like to download, but would like to use a program other than Netscape to view it (i.e. a large 800K+ .gif file), hold down the "shift" key before clicking on the link with your mouse. This will allow you to save the file to disk and open it with another viewer program, which may be more appropriate for very large files.
