|Where are the bells & whistles?
||Many researchers use old computers and must connect to the Internet
via slow modem connections. Audio clips and large graphics files dramatically slow downloads
without increasing information content (for the types of records found here). When more and more
users connect to Rootsweb, the congestion necessarily must slow the servers. Therefore, to
maximize functionality, I have omitted flashy graphics and designed the code to load as
quickly as possible.|
