Hmmm... what do you get connected at? I've also got dial-up -- and bad dial-up, I should say. Usually connected at 31.2 Kbps.
But you should look into testing in another browser besides IE.
Dial-up shouldn't be a problem, either, unless it's worse than mine. I've got IE 5.01, IE 5.5, IE 6, Netscape 7.1, Opera 7, Mozilla 1.5, and Firebird 0.7.
Thousand different paths
So many sterile ends
I chose the Devil's path
Never shall the sun kiss my face
And caress me with it's burning light
For I dwell in the shadows
And sleep side by side with death
no, you're pretty much the same. also, i tried downloading netscape a while ago... 5 hours later i was just like "screw this." anyways... im thinking of getting out of web design... my pages are horrible according to u ppl, and im not getting anything for it.... maybe ill get back into writing and just lave my site running, adding story chapters to it from time to time.
I would ditch the background and go with a small tiled image or a solid color. Having huge background images, that the user has to download, is not exactly a good idea ever, especially when your host is qeocities and your bandwidth is capped.

differences in style there... i like the busy look, and i did that on purpose- why else would i make a div 3 times as long as it needs to be? anyways, i was wondering if i could get a thorough visual analysis of mysite... ***** all you want, and ill just say thanks and not argue.
as soon as my site looks good according to you, I'll be leaving this forum and leave my site be, adding content like an actualy webmaster should.
oh and all that *****ing i did earlier? i was in a bad mood. always am
