WEll, your site is a hit, at least for those that can get in ! I think I
know why it is so overloaded. Its partly do to the way your machine
searches & presents the data. It took my PC, 5 or more minutes just to
read the one page for printing. Its separated HTML images for each line
!!! Not the way most data bases do it ! Then the next problem is from a
test print, Your list of names in left column print in YELLOW. OH , Yes,
Yellow prints real nice of WHITE paper ! So much for the invisible name
After you get one page, it dumps you out when you try to get the next
related page. Not to fun.
After a little tweekning, should be very nice.
