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????
