I will be happy to forward you my bank account info so you can wire me the
requisite funds for a larger monitor. I am at 768x1024 which, based on my
casual observation, is what the majority of people have, both privately and
at the office. Similarly, broadband-type bandwidth is great, and I do have
it in my office, but in my small town I cannot at this time get anything
beyond ISDN. Again, I do not think I am that atypical in that regard.

So you have a choice between posting at some enormous size that will reveal
your images in all their glory to a select few, or you can strike a
reasonable compromise and post in a size that reveals the image to a much
larger group of people. I have personally standardized on 750x500 (or
thereabouts) for horizontal shots, and around 600x400 for vertical shots.
