Yahoo Groups vs. Forum
- Sorry Motie, can't help you with that one. I have a cable modem and the pages just appear. I wasn't aware that they took time to d/l on a dialup. Perhaps then for you the forums would be faster? For a lot of the lists I don't read/reply online, I get them in my email box and reply there so I avoid those annoying ads. When I am online though I do the same as you, open up a bunch of windows and read multiple boards simultaneously. Perhaps the only way around that would be to host groups on the FSP website itself, though I am sure that would cost time and money that the FSP could better spend elsewhere.
