    Hey guys, we need some nice hi-res photos you’ve taken for our background here (you can see 2x so far), if anyone has some nice high res images they’ve taken link them here and we’ll use them as part of the site’s backgrounds πŸ™‚

    They don’t have to be this size:

    But anything 2560 px long edge and above would be perfect!

    Not sure if these are what you want, but feel free to use any of mine on Flickr: http://www.flickr.com/photos/97850317@N04/

    Also, nice idea, but on my less-than-up-to-scratch laptop, it slows the site down a wee bit.

    It would be your internet not your laptop that has trouble loading it?

    Pretty sure my internet’s grand. Downloading stuff is as fast as it should be, but Firefox acts like its about to crash every 5 minutes.

    Yeah it might be the laptop, it’s a javascript crossfade of 2 high res images, so if you’re GPU ain’t up to it, it could be slow?

    Im on a new MBP though so I can’t tell, thats why we need people to report it for us πŸ™‚

    It seems okay with the changes now…. maybe its learning.

    Also, these backgrounds look awesome on the dual screen (because you can actually see them).

    Is there an option to turn it off anywhere (for each person) because the site’s nigh-unusable for me?

    I’m going to turn it back on, I compressed and changed res of images – should play nice with your MBP now, tell me if you see any problems.

    MBP? I wish. They stopped making my laptop 5/6 years ago…

    Mostly better, but it still shudders/freezes when changing, especially when loading a new page.
