In regards to the issue of pics and folks on dial-up I say this; I have dial up (because I am not going to pay those theives) and it only takes a few seconds more to load pics. I post from both at home and from work. My work compy is the most pathetic thing you would ever want to see. But it has a high speed dial-up. Want to know something? I timed the ammount of time it took to load a page full of pics from my work compy and my home compy. 30 second difference! Just an FYI. ...Although I have made several special modifications to my old home compy.
