A long, busy weekend in 1585 Warwickshire. Her Majesty is on Summer Progress and is visiting our shire, so Festival was being held. Many merchants about and many many many strangers.

*sigh* I must say I am disappointed. So much hoopla and people so excited. But I doubt I will spend much time there.
first and foremost the site is so slow to load (noticable at work over a T3 line - excruciateingly painful at home over dial-up)
I have no access to Flickr (not by choice) so have no way to load photos at Ravelry.
The site is very counter-intuitive to my mind. This is most likely my fault, I know that features I hate on some sites are the reason others like the site.
To me the place reeks of clique-ishness and MySpace/YouTube mentality"
So many up-to-the=second bells and whistles are in use and included that people without access to such (for example: those of us rural dwellers who have no choice but to use 24k* connections because there is nothing else available) are handicapped severely. aut0omaticly creating a "second class" citizenship
So I guess the not so fancy mainly text forums will remain my mainstay.
* on a good day - connection is often slower.
