you should get off dialup dude... this isn't the 90's anymore. Just FYI
Believe it or not, some people still live in areas not serviced by high speed cable. Satellite access is pricey, so is cellular.
Chas, I'd say the ads are probably eating up too much bandwidth. I like to use DGCourseReview too but using dial-up you probably will run into those problems because of the ads.
