Re: Gum website update

Well, bless your heart, Don. Believe it or not, resin really is a natural product, and you can't get a DSL connection for a flat $10 a month. If I went on and on about the best gum preservative, or whatever-- would I be considered taking things too seriously, or does one get that label only if correcting you? And in case you missed my little smiley faces, so you know I'm not being too serious-- here's another: ;)

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
passť. This is DSL universe now.

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.
