  • Wall Street Journal mentions Unicycling

    The Monday, December 10, 2001 issue of the Wall Street Journal mentions
    Kris Holm and Unicycling on Page R4 of the E-commerce section. Here are
    two scanned jpg images of approximately one third of the page, and the
    article specifically.

    If anyone wants to do a better scanning job, let me know I will
    snail-mail them the actual newspaper page. Also, the page occupies too
    much space (about 1.3 Mbyte total) on my web site. If someone can archive
    the two scanned images on their web site, let me know, I will email them
    the jpg files.

    It would be a good idea to convert the images to gif's b/c there is no color to it. This would make them take up a lot less space, and they would be faster to download. Jpegs are good for color, but the file size is too big. You can go to download.com and find a progam to convert the images, or you should be able to do it with the software that came with your scanner. Hope this helps.

      Thanks Tel. I re-scanned and converted to GIF, and the file size is less
      now (about 100K and 60K for the two images). I also moved the images to a
      more "sticky" site:

      (Yes, the URL has a typo; I don't know how to change it though...)
