    I have noticed recently since my family signed up to broadband (on a 250MB plan) , that the forum uses a lot of bandwith. Is there any way of minimising this problem? (My mum and dad have banned me from going on the forum at home because of this, that's all.)

    I'm no techie, but you've lost me on this one. Urmm it's a web page right? There's nothing on the hard drive as there would be with a computer game or software program. Or is there?

    The individual pages shouldn't take up much bandwidth. Do you use the Albums a lot?

    No- I don't. At one stage I was on here for about an hour, and I used up 10 MB. My Dad got really angry with me then. It's only a problem now because when we had dial-up, it was an unlimited plan.

    Thanks NS, you kind of inspired me to find something new. I couldn't find a CAF logo that was small enough that still looked good, so I thought patriotic would work.

    That's a nie one you have as well, trackend. I always liked the pic I use in my avatar, it was my wallpaper on my laptop for awhile. I wasn't sure how it would shrink, but it worked out okay. :)

    for lower bandwidth version try www.ww2aircraft.net/forum/archive
    the pictures and such are what eats bandwidth, and all the requests by users for forum pages takes a lot of bandwidth also
