some have said AOL is a hard drive hog, whether it is or not i truly don't know. i do know this, if you don't download every piece of junk that comes along the hard frive does not fill up. have AOL for almost eight years and have not yet even come close to filling up a hard drive. (i'm not an AOL advocate, just saying what occurs for me)

I am an AOL user at home, and my needs for the 'Net are so few that I wouldn't notice my drive was full unless my hard drive ground to a screeching halt. I know 9.0 has this thing called a pop-up blocker, which is good. I usually check my e-mail on AOL, then minimize it and go play on Internet Exploder. I don't care who my ISP is as long as they get me where I'm going. Kinda the way I am about cars: if it gets me from point A to point B without breaking down, I'm good with it. :) HOWEVER - I do understand for those folks who are higher-octane 'Net users or computer wizards there are other, better options available.

I like simplicity.I want the server out of my way after I ring up. I like Yahoo messenger and dont need nine tenths of the stuff AOL sticks in my PC HD. I like the simplicty of internet explorer.I dont want all the clutter that AOL browser stuffs in front of me.But right now I have a Yahoo connection,It also tries to be in my way.I dont want all the bells and whistles.I pay them to get me online,Then I want them to get out of my sight.I am going to have to do a study to figure how to get Yahho off my screen.Right now I just make it scoot down below my view. Its is also guaudy or whatever you call that.Kinda like having mudflaps on your back bumper,Dice hanging on your mirror,You know,,Kinda like a pimps car you see in the big city.These things are also obnoxious as rap music.The best thing about Yahoo server is.It is 9 bucks a month.It works.But I want it off my screen and only Yahoo messenger available.
