Attention AOL users:
If any of the graphics you see on these pages are blurry in any way (apart from out-of-focus 'photos), it's because AOL's default is to automatically compress graphics - frequently to oblivion!
To turn this off, go to My AOL, preferences, www. Then click on the graphics tab and uncheck the box that says to compress graphics. Clear your cache then go surf and enjoy the view! (instructions correct June 2002)
