precious dial up

 I don't know about anyone else, but I live on a farm in the middle of backwoods Pennsylvania. I have satellite tv and dial up internet. It is a real pain sometimes but even as slow as it is it keeps me connected. I say all that to say this, I really wish we didn't have to wait for energy to build up on Baker Street. I serve about 10 people before I have to wait 20 min. for more energy. The jades do me no good at all, it takes over a min for my next page to load! I love the game ,I think it's cute but I do a lot more waiting than playing.

The energy actually builds up quicker here than it did with Latte Land.

I agree with this.

The ones who still use dial up ( I didn't they even still had that).....I've heard you can get internet using your dish..I don't know how much more it cost or anything.

 yes I looked into the satellite internet, I just cant afford it. dsl is approx 30.00 a month and not available here, satellite is twice as much. So until the prices go down, I will just have to deal with it. I guess I was just hoping the game would exclude any time related things.

I really feel for you girls.  I was on dial up last year.  I never had a problem with Latte Land.  After 10 years of dial up, I managed to get AT&T DSL for only $10 a month.  It was life changing!  It was actually cheaper than the dial up....LOL...  I am wondering if a different browser might speed up your gaming.  I know that when I switched to FireFox everything was better.

WOW is all I can say on that. 


Have you tried Chrome?  I have heard alot of peeps say it is much faster than IE/Firefox.
