    Default Size of some chapter are a problems for 56k users

    I was taking advantage of my schools t1 server and I am downloading Gantz every 2nd period, sometimes at home. but as i got to around chapter 60 or some the downloader indicated the size of chapters were 30 mb or so. this was a prob for me being a 56k user at my home. could something be done about this? Inoticed the files were Tiff and not jpg or gif's. I dunno wut Tiff files are even used for really but perhaps if converted to jpg and something it can lower the sizes. thanks for listening

    That was a problem for me too, so I skipped those chapters and try downloading them from Direct manga or somewhere else...

    I could. though I like to download at school taking advantage of the T1 server they got. plus most places that offer gantz are blocked. so far this place is th only one not blocked at my school. thank for the idea though. I do suggest something be done still.

    as an answer to your previous question tif is a really high quality thats usually used for scanning in at high resolutions... and to make them smaller if they were converted into jpg it would take the size down quite a lot but that means someone would have to unzip all the large chapters and convert each image seprately then rezip it and post it again... thats quite a bit more work than someone with 56k waiting then half an hour it would take to download!
    Many people now the truth but few people understand it!

    Are you one of the many?
