to all the sponsors!

I am not gonna name anyone here but a few of the sponsors really need to optimize your sites mainly the gif and jpg graphics

no big deal for those that have a decent connection but if you have dialup its like watching grass grow

and while I am on the subject one site needs to update their java quite badly it works quite poorly with IE 5 does not work with Safari at all and is just plain freaky in mozilla 1.6 (had to actually switch browsers to get my order in)

I am not posting this as a rant but I would hate to see anyone here that I have dealt with lose any sales because I have been treated very very well by all the sponsors that I have dealt with

the reason I wont name anyone is I do not want anyone to think less of two vendors in particular.

Don't worry, we know exactly what we need to to to make our site more user friendly. We are currently in the works of installing a proprietary e-commerce system that will make your shopping experience very painless.

For the time being we can offer phone, email, and mail ordering support to those who have difficulty with placing orders using our online system. If you'd like to place and order via phone, just send us an email and we'll provide the info needed.

The pages currently load very slowly as a direct result of the use of Java. The images have been optimized for speed and size and load MUCH faster than they used to.

Thanks for your constructive criticisms and please let us know if there's anything else we can do to help.

TLG  is adding a secondary order page for those on dial-up.

The new page will have no images and will load much faster. Should be up today or early tomorrow.

TLG and the works, good to hear!
one thing that prompted me to post this was in 2000 there was a study done that stated when users were made to wait for a page to load or a page did not render correctly it directly affected the troubled users likelyhood to purchase by up to 35%
one thing thats really made this a pain is micro$oft since most people use MSIE and they like to make it so IE when a new version comes out you will have to upgrade if site developers dont do extensive testing on older versions of IE and they decided to make their own Java as well that made the real java from sun behave very strange if work at all in IE
so at times if you use a old browser or a lesser known browser you can be left in the dark too

on a less important note, a lot of the supply sites could use some modern web design improvements
