    I can't stand the blinking dates

    Why do they have to blink? Its like a bunch of mini banners. For most animations i can hit the stop button on my browser and they will stop but it has no effect on these things. Its at the point now where i just skim over threads instead of read them. Please stop the blinking!

    Yeah. When I was on 56k a long time ago those blinking things use to slow my page load time down to. Thank God for DSL.

    I use cable now, but when visiting relatives I am limited to 56k. I can't believe how slow this feels after using cable.
