"pixel monster - faier" by pixelthork, 2004

am embarking on a project to save some GIFs I posted on the old blog that can no longer be read correctly in any current browser. long story short, html commands to enlarge a small GIF to specified dimensions no longer result in an "as is" enlargement--the browser assumes you want it tastefully fuzzed out. this used to be the case only with the hideous Mac Safari but the infection has spread to Firefox 3 and IE 8. The above GIF from deviantart.com (the old link no longer works) was originally much tinier, I did the enlargement and thought I was done with it back in '04. More of these to come. (I had to use Seamonkey to even find a browser that would read it so I could do this screen capture. Fetish much?)
