does the flash intro take a long time to load on a non dsl or non cable system? The majority of the people around here have one or the other, modems are practicaly obsolete. With comcast and verizon dominating the market theyve really hit hard their high speed internet access, and a lot of people have jumped on board. The load time for high speed access is practicaly nil. You can always skip it if you dont want to watch it. Thats what I do when I go to a site with flash. But sometimes I do watch to see what they have to say. To each is own.
