Was just wondering if there was a version of the website for users with dial-up? It is painfully slow as when you go to each and every different page the photo at the top must draw first. BTW, I am not on dial-up by choice: high speed just ain't available yet where I live! I know, hard to believe. At least there aren't party lines any more.

This is not the first time I've heard this. We are thinking about switching over to Joomla. And when doing so the new banner picture files can be toned down quite a bit to make the web page faster for everyone.

I actually designed the webpage when on dial-up. I grant you, it took longer to download but I guess I was used to it at the time. You Tube clips took two hours to load too.

Isn't there a way to turn off the loading of the images?

just so you know, there are more of us out there in dial-up land Smack
but I realize the world is going on without me! It is a struggle some days but those banner shots are beautiful so worth a minute of my time.
