FAQ - How do planes fly upside down?

Have teachers been lying to me all these years
I thought it was about the aerofoil shape
I thought it was all about lift
I thought it was all about bernoulli
It's all about pressure, right
Yeah, the airflow over the top of the wing goes faster cos it has to travel further - Not

:hi:

Now this is what I call an FAQ Section.
This has all the basics plus loads of extra (funny) ones.

This is a Newbies Heaven and I've been here for days now reading the various Threads.
Thanks for taking the Time Veeeight - appreciated.

FAQ - MMI non-tech pack MP3 artwork

Why doesn't my mp3 artwork display properly ?

Executive summary....
1) 500x500 pixels maximum (aspect ratio does not have to be 1:1, but have not tested how far out of square it can be but the longest size cannot be more than 500 pixels)
2) less than 200k in size. when saving the jpg in photoshop you can adjust the quality level till the projected file size is under 200k
3) when saving the jpg in photoshop (other art packages are available) make sure the 'Format Options' are set to 'Baseline', setting it to 'Progressive' will give you a slightly smaller file size for the same quality but it will not render on the display.
