So, no bites on my April Fool’s joke? I’ll have to try harder next year.

I’ve changed the image server that handles the pictures for the Pennswoods.net Classifieds. This change actually happened a little over a month ago, but I’ve gotten a handful of complaints about blurry thumbnails.

When reposting an ad, the same image from the previous incarnation gets used again. This means that an image could possibly be in constant use for months. When the image was first handed to us, chances are it was compressed and stored in the old picture server. Now when I moved over to the new one, it was handed off from the old server to the new server, and the picture may have been compressed a second time, and the thumbnail regenerated from the twice compressed image, resulting in a somewhat blurry thumbnail.

To fix this, simply edit the ad and update the image again. You should only need to do this once.
