Lightbulb Do you use Dial Up or High Speed ?

With the new upgrades to the pictures in threads, i thought this post may help OSO with a decision. They are deciding on whether to keep the "thumbnail" view of the pics or put them back to full size. They are thumbnails to benifit the dial up users by loading the page faster.

Maybe this poll will help them make the decision by letting them know how many of us are on cable vs. dial up.

what pole? I don't see one...
*edit.. I see it now... wonder why I couldnt when i first entered the thread? *

There has always been a choice on being able to turn off the embedded pictures. Dial up users should use this. I have high speed and find it a pain to have to open another window to view the pictures. I have a pop-up stopper program that I use that stops secondary IE windows from opening, so it is a multi step process to get the pics to open for me...

It's all about the RoadRunner! Will do without before going back to dial up.

I won't hardly stay in a hotel without high speed now. I couldn't imagine dial up at home. Don't we all get spoiled fast

I just noticed if you click on the number of votes for each poll selection, it will tell you who voted for that selection. Cool. Should tell us what all the "regulars" here are using.

Good idea on the pole. Don't penalize the mates that pay extra for hi-speed. Dial-up is for kids.
