NASA may understand things related to aeronautics and space, but, sadly, they sure as heck don't understand HTML very well:

Ummm... Houston? We have a problem here!
The "width" and "height" attributes of the HTML "img" tag *DOES NOT CHANGE THE SIZE OF THE IMAGE FILE*. It only changes the how that (image) FILE is
The entire 2.31 MB (9.4 x 6.3 inches (23.8 x 15.9 cm) 2250 x 1500 Pixel), 1.57 MB (5.8 x 8.1 inches (14.8 x 20.6 cm) 1400 x 1942 Pixel), and 2.01 MB (8.8 x 5.8 inches (22.3 x 14.8 cm) 2104 x 1400 Pixel) files will
They'll just get squeezed into a tiny 120 x 90 pixel area on the page, which sort of renders moot the whole point of providing thumbnails, doesn't it?
I've seen this mistake made far too many times by amateur web authors. You'd think the folks at NASA would be smart enough to get it right.
I mean this isn't exactly rocket science we're talking about here!
But then maybe that's the problem? They only understand rocket science, so anything that

I didn't so much have my ATM Debit Card card stolen as I did my identity.
What they (the criminals) actually did was electronically "skim" my card, thereby obtaining not only all of my bank account information (account number, etc -- all the stuff recorded on the magnetic strip of the card) but also my pin number. (Their keypad where you enter you pin number into was connected to another box that saved the two pieces of information together so they has everything they needed to clone and use the card).
We noticed it on the next bank statement. There were transactions for places in California and we live in Seattle, WA and we don't travel.
The next day I went to the bank to deposit a check and asked the teller what I should do. She immediately asked me whether I happened to make any purchases recently at the store across the street. Surprised that she would know I answered yes. She then told me the cops has just arrested the owner for fraud/identity theft. Apparently there were many dozens of victims, all in this area and many of them also customers of the same bank as mine (Bank of America).
Long story short, the bank refunded the entire amount (over $900) while the investigation was underway since it was likely the investigation would complete in my favor (and since they obviously had the resources to recover their losses better than I did to cover mine).
I'm surprised your bank isn't handling the situation similarly, unless your card was indeed stolen and not simply used as part of a much larger across-state-lines wide-spread identity theft ring (which the feds (FBI) took over investigating/prosecuting).
Half the people I heard from said that if they scroll all the way to the bottom they can read the answers for free, and the other half say this doesn't work. This confused me for the longest time until I finally figured out the answer.
Expertsexchange allows you to scroll down to the bottom to get a free answer the first time you visit their page, then gives your browser a cookie saying that you have gotten your free answer, and won't show you any more. So if you want to ensure that you can always scroll to the bottom, you simply have to block cookies from them and you are good to go.
A much easier (and faster too!) way to see the answer for free every time is to simply click the Google's "Cached" link and then scroll to the bottom.
No need to mess with blocking of cookies or any other crap.
Works every time.
You're not tied into Google in any way and can easily block them for good by pointing their domain to 127.0.0.1 in your hosts file.
They and other large name-brand high-tech companies have so freaking many it's impossible to truly block them all.
As I said it' a problem, and to the best of my knowledge not one that's easily solvable.
Please get some reality
