Thanks for your comments to ArchitectureWeek. To begin with, I can reassure you that you are not being intentionally blocked from seeing the full-size images available at ArchitectureWeek. While the magazine does appreciate and depend upon reader subscriptions and contributions, they are still voluntary, and as long as enough readers do contribute, we'd like to keep it that way!
We don't have much detail on the specific symptoms you experienced, but I can make a guess. It turns out that some new image compression technology we added to the ArchitectureWeek production system last month triggers an obscure bug in some configurations of Internet Explorer on some versions of Windows. The result is that I.E. fails to draw the images on screen.
Although the technology has been live on our site for several days, the problem only came to our attention yesterday (2003.0103), and we are still working on the ultimate solution. As a stop-gap, however, by late last night, images published in the last couple of months had been reposted without the new compression technology. You should be able to view these old-style images without difficulty - even with the !@#$% Microsoft browser.
If you continue to have trouble viewing larger images at ArchitectureWeek, or have any other technical questions related to the magazine, please don't hesitate to let our support staff know by email to "firstname.lastname@example.org".
