Dial up is w-a-y to slow for the vast majority of content on today's internet. It is can be done of course but, it could be as frustrating as waiting for an 1/8" garden hose to fill up a 55-gallon drum.
Time to upgrade to a bigger pipe.
How do you propose, I do that, when the ONLY Internet available to me is dial up? No high speed here at all. Upgrade not an option here. My choice is dial up or nothing.
We are conscientious, and careful to respect our dial-up/low-bandwidth users (which includes mobile). All our pages our light on graphics, and graphics have been optimized to achieve the smallest size (kb). We also restrict avatar and signature sizes. We expect dial-up users to experience good performance.
It sounds like your browser may not be caching properly. You could also try a faster browser like Google Chrome to see if that makes a difference. As a last resort, you could select the IP.Board Mobile skin from the skin selector drop-down in the lower left corner of the screen (visible only when logged in).
Thank you, that makes a LOT more sense. I believe it was user at this point. When the site was upgrading, I tried several times to log in, and the pages loaded so slow, I did maintenance, and deleted ALL temp int. files, and history, AND cookies, hoping that would help.
Well, it didn't Now, it is just as you said, being cached and loading much better. The more I come here, the pages are loading quicker.
I use IE7 SP3 and FF 3.6.10, which is quite a very nice update!!
Now, I do understand why it was taking so long to load. Gee, thought I was doing a good thing, cleaning up those TIF!
My sped is (Now, don't laugh!) varies, from: 21.6kbps -28.8kbps.
I will try the
"IP.Board Mobile skin from the skin selector "
and see if it helps any. No, I don't expect to fly, but will try that and see if it helps any. THANKS!
