Posted:hello all! i've been spinning now for a few months and reading the BB here just as long. i was hoping that someone could possibly help me with a technical issue... i don't have internet at home, so i was hoping to copy some of the moves to disk so i could actually learn from them where i practice. i have only figured out how to copy frames by right clicking. is there a program i could use to run the pics in sequence to get a video effect, or something similar?? i ran a search before i decided to ask, so please don't flame me! hello to all the party people !!thanks in advancetony

Posted:if you open the GIF file you saved off of HOP with your webbrowser (file, open, etc..), you should be able to get the animated GIF effect. Windows media player can also do it, though that may not be entirely obvious since it doesn't list GIFs as a file option to open (open the file by having it look for "all files" in the folder).Also I know ACDSee (a very good picture viewer with loads of nice features) will run animated gifs too.

Posted:Once you have the GIF saved, right click it in Windows Explorer and select Open with... then select Internet Explorer and the animation will play.If you have IE6 or FtonPage 2000 there should be a button on you rtoolbar that will allow you to download the entire web site and so with it as you will.------------------[swf= width=180 height=115]http://www.geocities.com/jangla2001/jangla.swf[/swf]We are all of us in the gutter but some of us are looking up at the stars."

ok Cass,basically - if you put up a small website, with your local ISP you wont get charged for ppl accessing your site. However if you have a really cool big website, with dynamic stuff and movies and heaps of ppl visiting it and things like that, you have to pay for it to be hosted somewhere on the web. You also have to pay a certain fee for the amount of traffic your site gets (Traffic being ppl making file requests and file downloads). The more files you download from the site - the more traffic you are causing. Therefore it is in Malcolms interests not to download stuff you arent going to use, otherwise he pays for the downloads of the files you dont even want.and as we all get so much out of this site, I think its bad Karma to waste Malcolm's money when he provides such a cool resource.see?Josh
