Well thanks for taking the time TOM. I'm actually a long time web and PC user. While I have made numerous tweaks, this page is the slowes loading of many message boards I read, plain and simple. I think the largest factor is the actual size of the page. I think is is nearing 1M at this time. If it was cut off at about 1/5 that size the performance would improve dramatically for everyone. Perhaps someone on a T1 wouldn't notice the difference but everyone else would.
Thanks again, not trying to be smart a**ed but the page itself (HTML, length, whatever) is the main issue, not my computer.
