Thank you (and previously Gregory raised the same point) for that. We need 
reminding. For a group who deride (sort of) designers who, because they are 
directly connected to the Web, ignore such things as obscenely long 
download times, we are starting to show similar short-sightedness. The idea 
that Win95 is sort of obsolete when so many of our clients just got Win 3.2 
or that the idea of downloading 20MB of browser (into a 64MB HDD) could 
take most of a day (I was overjoyed to go from a 300 baud modem to a 1200) 
- but it's FREE shouldn't figure into this all that much.

'Nuf Said!.
