I won't defend the lack of description on the URL. (I didn't bother to go
look until someone else said what it was about, and I'm on fast boradband.)
However, I took the comment you quoted to have an intrinsic "in addition"
rather than the intrinsic "instead" you saw.
However, the dial-up issue trumps everything else, and I don't blame you
in the least for your irritation.
