It does look a bit on the chilly side but up here we have to live with that 8 months out of the year.
Picture size is OK but as soon as you see the scroll bar appear at the bottom then you know the size is larger then the window. In your case it is 1024X768.
I think in photobucket you can set all your pics to be sized to 800X600 and that works fine. How to do it is another story and I don't remember what I did. All I know is every time a photo goes to my photobucket album, no matter how big it is, they all get resized to 800X600.
Some photo programs will let you resize your picture. I use Fast Stone Image Viewer and it's a free download on cnet. After you resize an original photo you'll want to "save as" and not "save". If you "save" you will lose the original picture. You'll also need to rename it if it goes back in the same folder.
Guess we know who's not coming next time! Haha. When I ride in the winter even with the fully enclosed heated cab, I still dress as if I was snowmobiling (more less). You never know what could happen or how far you might have to walk.
