I think you're stuck when you use dialup.

The only way to really speed it up is to "prefetch" pages, so when you are reading this thread the browser is getting the next thread you are going to read.

I did this by using tabs on Opera, now IE7 and firefox also have them.

Load the first page you want to read, then when that appears, load about 3 or 4 others on background tabs. When you have finished reading the first page the others will have downloaded.

There are ways to optimise dialup in the settings, but that was a few years back and I wonder if new browsers are not already configured for optimum speed.

Otherwise you are stuck :)

I might make a low speed version of the site that you can use without any graphics to download.

You can set your browser (well in opera you can anyway) to cache the images or turn them off, that will make it faster. Also if you block the adverts from loading as well.

But first you need the most recent browsers to use.
