Wall Street Journal mentions Unicycling

The Monday, December 10, 2001 issue of the Wall Street Journal mentions
Kris Holm and Unicycling on Page R4 of the E-commerce section. Here are
two scanned jpg images of approximately one third of the page, and the
article specifically.

If anyone wants to do a better scanning job, let me know I will
snail-mail them the actual newspaper page. Also, the page occupies too
much space (about 1.3 Mbyte total) on my web site. If someone can archive
the two scanned images on their web site, let me know, I will email them
the jpg files.

It would be a good idea to convert the images to gif’s b/c there is no color to it. This would make them take up a lot less space, and they would be faster to download. Jpegs are good for color, but the file size is too big. You can go to download.com and find a progam to convert the images, or you should be able to do it with the software that came with your scanner. Hope this helps.

Thanks Tel. I re-scanned and converted to GIF, and the file size is less
now (about 100K and 60K for the two images). I also moved the images to a
more “sticky” site:
