Re: Gum website update

No, it really doesn't "all depend," Don. You show me a *flat* $10/ month DSL connection (and one that is more than a short-term introductory offer), and I'll be the first to step up and say I was wrong, and you're brilliant. But I'm here to tell you that you will *never* find a $10/month *flat rate* for a DSL connection-- not in *any* universe.

I haven't had dial-up in years, and would certainly give up using a computer if I had to go back to one, so it's no big deal to me. I just think a misleading statement like that ought to be corrected. So there. :)

I will add that I have a lightening fast DSL connection here, but even so-- some websites that are posted here on this list are slow to download for me (not speaking of the two that were just posted, however). So unless it's something I seriously want to view, I know I don't wait more than about 10 seconds, if that, for something to come up. I move on (and I suspect others do as well). For those folks, I'd think about making your images smaller, or doing whatever it takes to shorten that download time. As usual, my 2 cents. :)

That all depends Diana. But whatever! Complaining about download times is

While I agree that DSL accounts are now relatively inexpensive, and I
could/would never go back to dial-up-- that $10 per month requires
that you are already a customer of whatever service is offering it
(AT&T, for instance), along with some other attached strings. There
is a "DSL lite," too, that is just as good as the regular DSL, in my
experience. But to say that you can get a DSL account "for as little
as $10 per month now" is slightly misleading. "DSL lite" costs are
probably closer to $25-30 a month; our regular DSL is closer to $40/
month. As usual, there are some additional hidden costs-- no matter
what service you're choosing.

Actually, just FYI, the second link has none of his tricolor gum work
on it that I can see, and the first link has an impossible download
time; I gave up after about 15 minutes as it was just started to
download the second image.  So I may not use either link, but thanks
for the info regardless.
