Strange names + Caching

Just curious, any of you have LJ rename your pictures into an actual word when uploading? This one happened to me on the first day I started using LJ:

XD

Alright, if that's a little off-topic, I do have another question. I've flipped back several months and no one's mentioned it, so hope it hasn't been covered yet. Is it just me, or does Scrapbook not allow caching? I like to preview my journal a lot while I'm writing, and its tough waiting for all the images to reload everytime since I often post 40+ pictures at once . . when I want to reply or check comments, it's the same waiting process too. My browser doesn't have problems with caching images on other sites or my previous image host, and I would think that LJ would want to keep cache on to lighten up bandwidth load. Can anyone shed some light on this?

In response to LJ turning images into words, that is the way LJ handles the images you upload. It is completly normal.

Hm, I thought it was just a random occurance. Otherwise, all my other photos have had their names changed to random numbers and letters stuck together, like 1f8ht

No Caching Problem For Me

The picture to which you linked in this post loads from my browser cache, in both Opera 7.54 and Firefox 1.0.3. Pictures from Scrapbook posted by a couple of people on my friends page also load from the cache.

That might just be because that's one image located inside the Scrapbook domain.

Check out this post I made: http://www.livejournal.com/users/cheesemon/29766.html
I was just responding to comments on here, and everytime I posted one, I had to wait for all the pictures to reload.

Maybe it's because I use Explorer . . hm . .

This is just a guess, but it's possible that your browser cache is too small. As I remember from my days using IE, the default size of the cache is absurdly small, and would be unable to keep a post with 62 pictures in it. I can't remember how to adjust the size of the cache in IE (I think it was under the "settings" tab of "options," accessed from the "tools" menu, but I'm not sure.)

But that particular post was so large that it even managed to freeze up my Firefox browser. I think I might have to enlarge the cache in that, myself.

Yikes, sorry for crashing your browser. ^^; My cache was set to 150 megs, which should be enough since it's only 3 megs of pictures. Still, I upped it to 1 gig now, and it still refuses to cache. Hmm . .

Thanks for helping though . .
