this is indeed correct. i to was fooled. we have discovered a way to make
to reload occur less frequently and not trash the users hard drive as much
by including more frames in the animation. as the whole gif is not supposed
to be animated anyway (only parts of it are supposed to move) it won't add
that much size to the gif.

        String          address = "http://www.cnet.com\n";;

        System.out.println(name + title + company + address);
