    just found out that you're only allowed one post every 50 seconds.

    got surprised too that it took me less than 50 seconds to submit two posts.

    I've got no hope of posting inside the 50 second time. Dialup is much too slow! Oh to have asdl!!

    Besty - I hit it every once in a while even on dial-up.... but I abuse the right-click "open in new window" feature of MSIE too ;)

    Don't forget the 5 second rule "If it drops on the floor you can still eat it if you pick it up in less than 5 seconds. (hopefully the toast doesn't land butter-side down)

    yeah i know how you feel, i had the same problem but it is so we can catch people who post random crap better because they have to wait to post.

    50 seconds is long! especially if you have 2 to 3 windows open to different threads!

    Hehehehehe .... wish I had a DSL or ADSL as well - that could lead me on the path to breaking the 50second rule .... It's fun at Uni though, coz that's really fast but it's costs us a bit which sucks :)
