I'm glad I've influenced you in a positive way, young paduwan. :)

Body Mass Index?

>>OK, so er... There's still the voodoo hypothesis, eh?
>Anybody placed you under a curse lately, Madhu?

Many have tried, but my strong magic and alliance with Good repels all that 

Besides, if you strike me down, I will come back more powerful than you can 
ever imagine.

Just did that.

Er, something *is* different.

I present to you the horror that was the downloaded image: 

Egads! My pixels are getting mangled in the ether!

>not that I've heard of one, but I'm sure it's possible. If that's the

It only seems to happen to larger images.
The site is hosted by Hugh Blair of evolt.org
I'll have a word with him.

I'm using the same client for uploading and downloading from both sites, so 
I'm guessing this is a server-related issue. Both servers run Linux.

<tip type="cooking tofu">

I'm not a fan of the bland custard-like taste and texture of regular tofu. 
Want it to taste more like meat? Put a block overnight in the freezer. Then 
let it thaw for a few hours in the regular compartment. Cut this up. The 
resulting tofu has a more chewy texture that absorbs flavours better.
