Re: Gum website update
What does that term, "bite me," mean exactly? I've never known, but it's always seemed like such a sophomoric comment to me.
My point is that there's too much that people state "with authority" that goes unchallenged--on this list and elsewhere. Blame it on this presidential election, but I'm growing really weary of it, so when I see some statement made that I know is just flat-out wrong (like resin is not a natural product, for instance), if I have the time and inclination, I'll (continue to) point it out.

Believe it or not, resin really is a natural product, and you can't get a DSL connection for a flat $10 a month. If I went on and on about the best gum preservative, or whatever-- would I be considered taking things too seriously, or does one get that label only if correcting you? And in case you missed my little smiley faces, so you know I'm not being too serious-- here's another: ;) On Sep 6, 2008, at 2:47 PM, Don Bryant wrote:Diana, Chill out! You take things to seriously.

You show me a *flat* $10/ month DSL connection (and one that is more than a short-term introductory offer), and I'll be the first to step up and say I was wrong, and you're brilliant. But I'm here to tell you that you will *never* find a $10/month *flat rate* for a DSL connection-- not in *any* universe. I haven't had dial-up in years, and would certainly give up using a computer if I had to go back to one, so it's no big deal to me. I just think a misleading statement like that ought to be corrected. So there. :) I will add that I have a lightening fast DSL connection here, but even so-- some websites that are posted here on this list are slow to download for me (not speaking of the two that were just posted, however). So unless it's something I seriously want to view, I know I don't wait more than about 10 seconds, if that, for something to come up. I move on (and I suspect others do as well). For those folks, I'd think about making your images smaller, or doing whatever it takes to shorten that download time. As usual, my 2 cents. :) On Sep 6, 2008, at 12:32 PM, Don Bryant wrote:That all depends Diana. But whatever! Complaining about download
