You know, I've clicked on the Century Virtual Cruise thread a few times now, and simply had to give up. Why? Because I'm tired of waiting for the darn thing to load. I waited 10 minutes just now. Why? My guess is the thread is so loaded with photo/video media that it would flip over if it was a cruise ship.
How about an update without the gigs for us who are stuck on 56k???
(And I don't need another speech about how high-speed is the "way of the future"- I'm on dial-up... get used to it.)
Just 1 month to go until the "Cruise Cynic Mystery Cruise" ... January 2008
If you are running a virus software this too will slow down the loading of posts with pictures. Most virus programs check everything before a post will load, try turning it off and see if that speeds things up.
