- Nov 2 3:58 AMThank you, Mike, and all those who have given me feedback on how your
computer performs with Geocities. However, I was expecting a little more
from my online friends, namely, hints on how to try and solve my problem.

page" as a timely example of my computer's "very bad" performance (snail's
pace) in accessing ANY Geocities page. My apologies for my inappropriate
