    Default Photo Gallery

    I am realy amazed at the high quality of the photos in the gallery.

    Sheesh! Some fantastic photography. I look through them neary every time I log on.

    I encourage everyone to spend some time looking at the great work of your fellow cachers.

    If I EVER get broadband internet in this small central Maine town, I'll prbably upload some photos myself, But until then, I'll enjoy browsing through the great efforts of others.

    Keep it up, people!

    Why not live life like it is your last day....instead of pretending to be a member of the Peter Pan Club and believing you will be around forever.

    Perhaps that works for you, but I'm still using my 300 baud modem!

    Are you able to downsize your photos before you download them? I usually like to downsize mine to less than 100KB and that way it doesn't take very long at all. IF you want a free photo editing software,Irfanview is good for what you might want to use it for and I like the word FREE. I do have PSE 2 but only use it for real photoshop techniques. I am on dial-up too and it only takes less than a minute for a 100KB photo to upload.
    Just smile it won't crack your face

    The statistics on sanity are that one out of every four persons is
    suffering from some sort of mental illness. Think of your three best
    friends -- if they're okay, then it's you.

    Default Internet speeds

    First, this is not a plug for and I have no ties to the company either.

    I live in Lagrange and doubt that I'll ever see cable or dsl in my area. I got tired of dial-up so I bought a 2-way satellite system from Direcway (www.direcway.com). It's 'always on' and I get transfer speeds much faster than I ever did with dial up.

    I've had DirecWay one-way service for several years. I'd go to 2-way, but I'm terribly annoyed at their FAP policy, and I lose the signal so often that it isn't worth it. May has been so rainy that several tims I've had to shut down the satellite modem and go to straight dial-up... With my 300 baud modem, of course...

    But WiMax is coming! I can feel it in my bones. And when it does...

    I have photo editing software, but I'm not really familiar with it. Guess I should start my education...
