Change is a comin'
I have spent a few minutes exploring Publisher, and I think I'll look at another program, 1st Page, I think. But, I must say, you should expect to see some [oh wow. santana

] improvements. Now, the question I have for those that are using some of the slower connections, 'what does a 150kbs background do to your download time?' I've found a sweet, subtle, complicated, but not distracting background I want to use. The kind that you can get lost in the visual complexity, but the brain would easily ignore when reading text. So, now my concern is download time. I've been primarily text based, and I know I can add more without slowing download speeds too much, but 'how much is too much?'
Regardless, I'd like to move to something a little less harsh than black on white. And I really, really want to add a 'small' photo, maybe another 150kbs? And a little itty-bitty icon, maybe 150kbs?
So, like, how long does a 1mb page take to download at decent 14.4 and 28.8kps speeds? I mean in the real world, not just doing the numbers. I used to download and surf 6-7 pages at a time; setting off one search while looking to see if previous downloads were completed. So, in the real world, is a one mega byte page a real problem? I mean, I really want to make the interface less eye straining, more interesting, but not lose people who don't have access to high speed yet.
Oh, I think I'll also...ah, never mind...Que Sera, Sera
