"I have previously forwarded to you image files reflecting the amount of traffic this Web site http://www.royblakeley.name is receiving. I have had numerous people claim they cannot view the photos. And, that does not include the "AOL" customers that don't have the proper browser flexibility to download the DjVu plug-in for viewing.
(Note: For AOL users -bless your hearts, AOL is taking such advantage of so many folks - just plug into the internet, then go to either the internet browsers, Internet Explorer, Firefox (http://www.mozilla.org), and/or you can even use Opera http://www.opera.com) - or, in fact, all of them - even at one time! If one browser freezes up with me I just open up one of the others.
In any event, instructions on how to download the plug-in viewer for DjVu is located at http://www.royblakeley.name/index.htm)
You guys better 'hop-to-it' if you want to spread the news about this relatively unknown format."
In fact, all of these files and images are "pushed-out" to the visitors to these Web sites by the Zeus Web Server - which is only a "temporary" 30-day trial version, and all of my emails are processed by CommuniGate Pro's email server - gratis ("no charge") - as long as this shows up "This message was transferred with a trial version of CommuniGate (tm) Pro," and the server operating system is furnished by RedHat - no charge.
Ms. Rojas actually does not have a say-so regarding LizardTech's Express Server product, but she does have an interest in sales of the Document Express product - which is what the consumer will use to convert its scanned JPEG files to DjVu.
She committed to me, yesterday, in a telephone conversation that she would forward my request for LizardTech - that request was simply, to consider my Web sites as a "demonstration" of a Personal Digital Library. These Web sites demonstrate what the advantages of using the DjVu format for your scanned images that you want to share over the internet.
I also told her that I am "not" interested in any "commercial" arrangement with LizardTech - these are free Web sites void of marketing, sales, and other intrusive distractions to delivering what I believe to be important messages to others.
So, "the ball is in their court" at this time.
But, let my readers be cognizant of this fact - it's hard to deliver information to you "free" - but, I will do this as long as I can - reducing these costs for hardware, broadband, and software certainly makes life much easier to pursue this passion of mine.
I will tell you that my most expensive item is bandwidth - and, that charge is currently running $592.23 per month! (September 28, 2004 Covad Invoice http://www.royblakeley.name/larry_blakeley/articles/monthly_articles/covad_invoice20040928.htm)
