I never gave it a thought before. If you are having a problem with the size of the text on the index page, you could adjust the font size. There is an "A" on the top right of the page where you can adj. the font. :idea:

Having broadband is like having a car, do you have a Yugo, or do you have a Ferrari ?? Or do you have a confused system that one moment is a Ferrari, but then becomes a Yugo?? Broadband ISP's are not all blazing fast.. some are rather mediocre. In fact most are mediocre.. Since I travel all over the country, and use probably ten to fifteen different ISPs per month, I get to sample the available systems fairly well.. and most are NOT all that fast.. Cable vs DSL is another issue.. mediocre to slow.

So I think simple, minimal graphics to allow faster intial downloads... sometimes the initial download takes enough time that the ISP gets confused and starts over again, and again.. the 'action bar' just crawls along

It accepts credit cards, you don't need a Paypal account. There's a link on the lower left. It's not very intuitive though, you first need to enter an amount in the text box, hit "update" then click the link for the credit card option.

Thanks, anything is appreciated.
