Welcome to the GWTW Forum.
Guests (non-registered users) can view the forum but are unable to post.  If you don't have anything to say then why would you bother to register?
One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".

Fantastic guys, this is very helpful.  I wonder if anyone outside the US will be able to provide any numbers, as that would be useful too.

Thanks,

Mark

Less then a second, 3.5 mbs wireless internet service over wireless g home network. Chico, Ca, Win XP Pro, IE7, 1.8 core 2 Duo Centrino.

Inside the site it takes 1-2 seconds to start loading a new link, but once the navigation begins they all loaded under 1 sec.

It's taking forever to load.  Sad

But then again I run NoScript so that's to be expected.  Tongue

With you temporarily whitelisted I get just enough time to see "Loading..." before it is.

Firefox Portable 3.5.7, Vista 32-bit, Speedtest.net result. Location is Vihtavuori, Finland (that's in EuropeGrin.
