Guess I will have to stop being a member of TR.

By normhaga ·
I clean my cookies, shut off acceptance of cookies, and go to see what is happening at TR. I immediately get bombarded with pop-ups to join TR. All because I am not logged in and there is no TR cookie on the machine.

With this kind of commercialization, migraine headaches feel good by comparison.

TR, get your **** together so that people can browse the forums and then maybe decide to be members! Don't annoy them every time they change forums!

I concure

Pop ups seem anathema to a good tech site like this.

Ain't very friendly to dialup either.

There are still places in the US even with dialup so slow that the Internet, much less TR isn't worth the time and trouble.

There are places like that all over the world

And they are in the Majority where the best Net Connection is Dial up. While some things like the Videos provided are defiantly not Dial up Friendly the site itself should be.

I've lost count of the number of Web Pages that I've had to advise on how to make better so that they do what they where bought by the concerned Business to do and that is sell the Company to the Masses.

On every occasion the biggest mistake made is to make the Site useless to Dial up by overloading it with too much unnecessary junk and Large Pictures or worse still use a very small picture format but instead of a couple of pictures the Web Developer goes nuts and inserts hundreds of Pictures so that the Page takes hours to load.

At this point potential customers turn to other sites that simply Load faster to do whatever it is that they want to do.


I have to agree with all the changes made TR is now defiantly only catering to the minority of World Citizens or the Minority of IT Pros around the world. God only knows what a First Time Visitor to the site things if they are on anything but one of the fastest Connections possible. Another case where supporting the Bleeding Expensive Edge isn't the best way to proceed.

I would never be able to spell "reminisic..."

Oh, what the ****. I could use the high-end Scotch more than any memories.
