    I noticed a special area containing all of Ron's DVD reviews. Would it be possible to somehow separate or mark the "highly recommended" DVD reviews? There are a few movies that I want to purchase (based on the reviews) but can't remember the titles! I realize I could search for "highly recommended" in the software forum but it would be nice to see it on the DVD review page. Thanks!

    Hi, Greg!
    Sorry for the delay in getting back to you.
    I was on vacation and have just gotten back.
    What I will try to do in the upcoming week
    is to do some editing in Ron's Reviews and
    put some astericks next to the Highly Recommended
    titles.
    Thanks for the suggestion.

    My only suggestion for the reviews is to either put in hyperlinks or smaller thumbnails for the graphics. Accessing the reviews takes nearly 5-10 minutes with my crappy dial-up connection (damn you 56 kbps!)

    Hi, Mark!

    I certainly understand your frustration.

    Thing is, we don't get many complaints about
    the loading speed. Most people have graduated
    from dial-up and are using either broadband cable,
    DSL or otherwise.

    If I get significant amount of complaints about
    loading times I will consider changing the format.

    Take care!

    Mark, have you considered turning off images in your browser? You can then still click an image and get it to be shown if you wish.

    There is also an option in your member options to show imbedded images as a hyperlink.
