actually i figures a way to limit image sizes:
(i'm totally unsure how his BB-code parser works, so this may be unusable);

$a = GetImageSize ($imagepath);
$width = $a[0];
if ($width>$limit)
echo "<IMG SRC='".$imagepath."' WIDTH=".$limit.">";
echo "<IMG SRC='".$imagepath."'>";

okay, it's not the coolest PHP on the world, but it should work... probably...
(note that it does _not_ need GD to be installed.)

How about we split Windows into 3 categories: Windows/Nvidia, Windows/Radion and Windows.

That would at least let people know up front that the prod will (or will not) require a specific graphics card.
It was done with MS-DOS/gus and MS-DOS...

Nah... that wouldn't make sense, there aren't many radeon/geforce-only demos to fill the categories...
having systemrequirements on the prod page tho sounds cool...

One mighty blue bug has been squashed to smithereens! All rejoice!
Well, it seems to me that there are at least plenty of geforce-only demos... maybe it's just me as an ATI owner wishing I had a geforce...

And by the way, the pouet.net server sends following headers:

Cache-Control: no-store, no-cache, must-revalidate, post-check=0, pre-check=0
Pragma: no-cache

Well, not actually a bug, but it's annoying, if you have a crappy browser that doesn't let you override the cache control (in case you want to view the site offline).

The pages at pouet.net are dynamic and so they should never be cached. If you are using a crappy browser that doesn't let you override the cache control, maybe you should try a browser that does. Or else, if the server allowed clients to cache dynamic content, other users would complain about having crappy browsers that choose to cache whatever and whenever they like and never get fresh content no matter how hard they tried to refresh it.

(in short: Try Mozilla or Opera)

Also note that those headers don't only apply to browsers, but to proxy servers as well. And I've seen many 'respectable' ISPs using proxy servers without notifying their users and with default (= lame) configurations.

Gargaj: Simple, just have a 32x32 image there first, then replace it later. :-)

For the headers: pouet is a dynamic page, but do you really need the very very very latest version of absolutely everything? If nothing, the front page could be up to 15 minutes late or something -- more client-side (and proxy-side) caching is good for the server load. pouët is slow enough as it is. :-)

Yes, including mine, but I have (almost) never had caching problems with it. For example if you look at ojuice.net, which is a dynamic site, too, uses "Cache-Control: private" header, which should stop transparent (and other) proxys from caching it, but allows caching for the client.

Sure, it might be, that there are some browsers, that would have problems with this, too, but I don't think there's many.

This may be a very good demo, but one information is enough.
Breakthrough releases are like that Madenmann.
