28k modem!! errr .. yeah okay. Even my mum has a faster modem than that!!

Anyway ... the whole point of what I am saying, that's if we are on the same wavelength, is that design and build should be to the viewers choice. Sorry but it just seems so obvious to me that if you can get away with, (as in - viewers are happy/ served/ informed etc.), planting as much info on a page as you need then why stick to something else?

Basically my answer to most of what Phil says, in my best Jerry Springer participants' favourite saying, is ... "Whatever"

I like it and all the visitors, bar Phil, are contented. So it stays the way it is until we redesign the whole site which will be in about 4 months time.

Have a NICE day,

Like DJ Index? You seem to have a strange definition of a page being
fast Lee - it took 1 minute 12 seconds to download over a 28k
connection here (in the US, where your server is), which I wouldn't
count as fast. All those frames, a pop up window and a 64k gif aren't
really helping. In fact the whole page works out at 137k. Back to the
drawing board.
