Since the traffic has increased so much on this site, and above all the number of pasts per page has increased, the threads take FOREVER to load up or refresh when using 56k dialups.

Can we go back to less posts per thread page to help some of us out?

(or from memory there's a user selectable feature to do this is there?)

If you go into your profile and "change defaults" pete you can change the default number of posts per page. I have mine set to a max of 20 per page and this seems to speed things up considerably... :thumbup:

I tried that three times and it didn't work. That's why I posted this thread. I have now tried again and guess what? 20 per page. Way better.
Now, mr GTHO4, here I come...... (chomp, chomp, bite, grrrrr, snarllll, wooff! )

I think it's time for you to upgrade your Commodore 64 computer.

Mine's a Pentium III 600 mhz with 256MB of RAM - Asus P3V4X motherboard - 48X CD-ROM - Asus geforce 256 DDR GPU graphics accelerator and a 17 inch monitor.
No problems.
Do I pass as a computer geek?
:D

Ummm Pritsh, in there you listed 2 fifferent parts of 2 CPU manufacturers products....
You either have an P3 or a Duron
One is made by AMD (Duron) (Ford Equivalent cos they're better :D )
The other is made by Intel (P3) (Holden Equivalent as they are not so good)
But the 1Ghz speed of the CPU is good :thumbup: ;)

Pete what sort of cash would you be after for it?
*envisions a vastly improved dorm in which he has room to move as his PC isn't taking up all the space* :D

I won't muck around until I know for sure. But given it cost $5k+ it won't be a $1k special if you get my drift!

perhaps the fact that you can carry it from one place to the other. You can set it up on a table and still see have room on the table for other things..

Mines a Toshiba Portege 7140 P3 500, 128Mb of ram and 14.4 inch LCD display. All that in a package that is 1.4cms thick and weighs about 2.1 kgs. I had to stop using my computer bag as it weighed more than the laptop did!

That is as "dumbed down" as I can get it little fellah
Except to say 1ghz = 1000mhz :rolleyes:
Both of them would make a pretty damn good computer system anyway ;) :D

I couldn't go back to desktop. Notebooks are just so much more practical. I like being able to sit in the sun in the backyard on a nice day and surf FF!
