    Good day,
    Is it possible to have a printed page list, possibly with catagories and advertising names that we can click on a name and goes to the advert/details.
    Reason is, that if we want to go through each page as is now it takes for ever. I have a 10 meg line and it is seriously slow so those people on the entry level adsl will have a real problem, I am sure they will give up after the first 2 pages. I know we are retired and some of us have all the time in the world but still frustrating.
    Some days we are looking for something to do and feel like browsing through to get ideas, this would certainly help.

    Not criticizing your wonderful work and appreciate what you are doing, Just a thought.
