That is the problem, even with 1mb attachment and I can wait half and hour!Life is full of coincidences. I recall we were discussing two yeas ago representation of Youth Conferences on the net here. I mentioned then that my mom had broadband connection. What is startling is that she has arranged for tomorrow to install some new equipment so the speed will be 3 times higher.
