Usage hints



• Resizing on the fly
• Clickable thumbnail BBCode howto

This service allows for "resizing on the fly" by modifying the URL ( similar to IMGUR ).


By adding image dimensions into the target URL, your image need only be uploaded once at full size and used anywhere & any size thereafter without any further image manipulation.

Example image ( https://imgdump5.novarata.net/og3pgh.jpg ) is 800x941 pixels in its original form:

. . . but if we use this URL: https://imgdump5.novarata.net/640x753/og3pgh.jpg the software will provide a smaller image:

. . and thumbnail size with https://imgdump5.novarata.net/240x282/og3pgh.jpg


If you have an image in any of the following sizes, any of the other sizes may be used without image distortion.
Please note that increasing an images's size will increase the distortion levels, so it's recommended you start with the largest image available and reduce its size, rather than trying to blow up a small image.

 Landscape orientation
480x360 | 640x480 | 800x600 | 1024x768 | 1200x960 | 1600x1200

 Portrait orientation
360x480 | 480x640 | 600x800 | 768x1024 | 960x1200 | 1200x1600


Oversize images can be a pain in the browser. If you're sharing something detailed ( i.e. "It's huge, so you can see it" ) that may only interest a few folks, it's usually best to use a clickable thumbnail.

To do this on a discussion board, just follow this template:
[URL=https://imgdump5.novarata.net/og3pgh.jpg][IMG]https://imgdump5.novarata.net/240x282/og3pgh.jpg[/IMG][/URL] ( this one uses the pretty girl seen elsewhere on this page as an example )
Explained: [URL=URL to large image][IMG]URL to thumbnail image[/IMG][/URL]

bare metal n. 

 1. [common] New computer hardware,
   unadorned with such snares and delusions as an operating system, an 

bit bashing needed to create these basic tools
   for a new machine.  Real bare-metal programming involves things
   like building boot proms and BIOS chips, implementing basic
   monitors used to test device drivers, and writing the assemblers
   that will be used to write the compiler back ends that will give
   the new machine a real development environment.  2. `Programming on
   the bare metal' is also used to describe a style of
   hand-hacking that relies on bit-level peculiarities of a
   particular hardware design, esp. tricks for speed and space
   optimization that rely on crocks such as overlapping instructions
   (or, as in the famous case described in The Story of Mel (in
   Appendix A), interleaving of opcodes on a magnetic drum to minimize
   fetch delays due to the device's rotational latency).  This sort of
   thing has become less common as the relative costs of programming
   time and machine resources have changed, but is still found in
   heavily constrained environments such as industrial embedded
   systems, and in the code of hackers who just can't let go of that
   low-level control.  See Real Programmer.

In the world of personal computing, bare metal programming
   (especially in sense 1 but sometimes also in sense 2) is often
   considered a Good Thing, or at least a necessary evil
   (because these machines have often been sufficiently slow and
   poorly designed to make it necessary; see ill-behaved). 
   There, the term usually refers to bypassing the BIOS or OS
   interface and writing the application to directly access device
   registers and machine addresses.  "To get 19.2 kilobaud on the
   serial port, you need to get down to the bare metal."  People who
   can do this sort of thing well are held in high regard.
