How many visitors on Prime still use Dial-up? Or are we all ADSL or cable subscribers? The reason I ask is because we use so many (large) photos on the forums these days that it must kill dial-up users.

ps. just in case anyone else gets this crazy idea, let's NOT post a huge photo on this thread. yes, it would be funny but our poll results would be effected. :D

What's dial-up? :D
Yeah, I think I heard my dad talking about dial up he had to use when he was a kid. I'm not sure though. When he started talking about how far he had to walk up hill in the snow both ways and 8 tracks, I stopped listening.
Cable since '97. Can't imagine anything else.
