Is there anyway to set Dial-Up mode and Full Graphics mode to always apply for the same account, but at different locations? At work, I don't like sending requests to all the random servers that the graphics are hosted on so I've been changing to Dial-Up mode as soon as I log on. However, I always have to change back to Full Graphics mode when I get home, as I do like seeing everyone's avatars and sigs. (The irony to all this is that I have DSL at work and dial-up at home.)
Also, why is the logo the only graphic allowed in Dial-Up mode?
I have the same problem, but backwards. At home, having all the pics on really slows things down, but at school (shh, don't tell anyone!) it's really fast anyway, so I turn them back on. But being a CS major myself, and being somewhat technically inclined, I can't think of a way to do that. Of course, I don't really know enough about how cookies work...
NOTE: The above post makes no sense. We apologize for the inconvenience.
Dial-up Mode wipes out everything in the headers/footers of people's posts. That means funky background colors (like mine), any text that people add to the start of every post, and all sigs. Dial-up mode does not do anything about images people put INSIDE their actual posts, however.
I'm sorry for making you go through so much effort. I was just curious as to why SOK could do what he did. I didn't mean for you to go and rewrite code (although I am grateful that you did, thank you.)
I don't know if the other dial-up users are going to be pleased with all the changes that have resulted from this thread or upset.
Edit: And, I know you're a deity around here, but how did you reply to yourself????

Nope, since we're constantly changing the number by moving threads, deleting posts and threads, and so on. We technically passed that mark a while ago. (If I'm REALLY bored and I get the time, I'll go back and identify the 12M view.)
