    How to use these Boards...

    This is a nice set-up for hi-speed internet probably. With my dial-up, I log on at 1600 to 2800 at best. I don't have that much time to spend waiting for the different things to come up. Hope that you will consider us in the back country and try to speed your site up. This is my home page...
