I sure miss his comments and words of wisdom. He always said an awful lot with very few words. I hope that all is well with him.

Dale is well. He has very slow dialup and our new site will not load for him. He is sorry he is not able to contribute any longer. I am working on coming up with a way to get him connected somehow. But it will be a little while. In the meantime, he asked me to forward any topics to him that people specifically ask him to chime in on and he will send me a reply to post.

Of all the problems that have come along with the new site (and there have been more than I would have expected) this is the worst, in my opinion. I will try to fix it soon.

Ohhhhh harumph!! That never occured to me, that dial-up would be an issue. I'm glad I ditched dial-up a couple of years ago.

That could be the reason why we haven't heard fro J.Waller and alot of other folks. :( :(

Since most Porchers live in rural areas, and most rural areas still have problems with fast internet connectivity, this site may be a problem to some. I would not have been able to access the new site a couple of years ago when I had dial-up. I did finally get faster service but it isn't anywhere are fast nor as dependable as what people in the cities get.

When it comes to computers I have to admit I am rather ignorant. What is " dial-up" ? We are on cable, TWC, to be exact, and I do not think there is a problem with speed. But what do I know?

Klaus ---- dial-up service means accessing the internet through the use of a modem for the telephone lines. Before I subscribed to a satellite service, I would "click" to "sign-on", at that point I could hear the "modem" dialing the local server phone number, then I would hear all kinds of weird sounds then there would be silence at which time the AOL homepage would appear on my screen.

Thank you, Kate, for that information. Now I understand a bit more.
