Try the lofi version... http://www.revkites....rsion/index.php

Drops unecessary graphics and uploads.

You can't see images in the posts, but all text is visible. ;)

Basically Ant .... it dops the site down to the basics. Less info, smaller size...makes it much faster for the slower connection...ie. dial-up. Or like Outsync said...for his mobile application. Get's rid of all the graphics, animation etc.

Doesn't sound like you need it.

They don't HAVE TO, it's just faster, since they don't have to load up pictures and everything else.

While I have broadband at home, at my mother's cottage I am lucky if I can connect at 33k on dialup. A lofi edition will be great for the 2 weeks I'm there.

The lofi version is also available for my Kitelife forum... Just look for the link in the dark grey bar, bottom of every page (even this one).

Thanks John, I have cable while I'm here in Fl and dial up at home. Will change when I get home. But hope by then they will have the cable out in the sticks where I live. See you at TI ?
