Can I ask AGAIN for a text only site with limted HTML? Put text ads on if you need to, but I haven't been able to get my Sailnet fix for over a week since all I can do when I don't have WiFi (which is most of the time now) is to use my satellite phone at 2400baud. I can't even come close to downloading the front page of sailnet with the satellite phone let alone one of the posts. Actually, with the flaky Internet over satellite they have down here on various islands it's ridiculously slow to access the site even when I don't do it with my phone. If you could make a satellite friendly/low bandwidth system you may get more cruisers participating.
