.txt file extention

Recommended Posts

Just a bit of computer geekery,


If your browser displays a .txt as an image when hosted on Geocrappies (or anywhere else for that matter), it means it actually reads and interprets the file to see what it might be before attempting to display it.


Not all browsers do this, for good reason, because it also means that someone renaming a malicious .exe to .jpg will have your browser running the program, not looking at a blank or white noise-image! I assume you're using Windows/IE and with SP2 that is getting better, but it's still bad practice.
