To find out what mindsprings rates are you just need to check on
http://www.mindspring.com/prod-svc/Pricing.html while you are at
their web page you will want to look and see if they have a local
access number for your area http://www.mindspring.com/pop.html
The unlimited acount for access is $19.95 web space at 5mb is
4.95 more a month. I would shift to them myself but the long
distance charges are an extra charge from the local exchange. If
you are in a city that already has a POP (point of Presence) they
are a great deal. They also have other accounts for the people
who only want email and don’t spend much time on the web. Ed Ward

  When you say that you like to read off line� and �flash at
�my leasure�, are you referring to reading mail? Navigater
loads mail files on my hard drive and I can than close the PPP
connection, read the mail, mark my mail �deferred,� and than
open the PPP connection, and �send mail in the mailbox� at my
leasure. I admitt that I can�t read web pages etc off line. 

“Flash” at my leisure, means that - after writing my replies
off-line . . . I sign-on, my notes get sent to appropriate areas
– the mail and my notes “Bulletin Boards” (ie: Orchid, Scuba,
Game hints, etc.) get picked up in a matter of seconds, and if
there are many it takes only a few minutes. I’m still signed up
for the Year in Advance deal which costs me somewhere around
$17.00 (U.S.) per month. I have never tried to read WEB pages
while off line, so I don’t know if (and don’t think that) this
can be done. Oh, and I can delete instantly, so my hard drive
doesn’t get too cluttered with things I don’t need.

A program called WebWhacker from the ForeFrong Group will let
you download pages and read them offline. You can set it to get
all pages from a site and one external link. Itstill takes time
to download, but you are not online while you read. Great for
saving pages. You read them in your browser.

I’m sure a websearch for webwhacker will find it. I’ve used it
for a couple years now and am completely satified.

You’re born. You grow up. You become your parents. You die.

Oops, my fingers flew faster than my brain. ForeFront Group is
the correct name. There’s a description and contact info at
http://www8.zdnet.com/macweek/mw_1049/gw_whacker.htmlI This is
from Macweek, but they have a version for that other OS
