Default Dial up

I tried the search function but didn't come up with anything particularly related. When I'm at work with our high speed connection, the site works fine. At home, however, the site is all but unusable which I'm assuming is due to all the pictures attached to people'* signature.
Is there a way to turn the pictures off?

The max size should be NO bigger then mine.

I don't want to have to resort to altering sigs, but its important that all members revise their sig image as a courtesy to dial up users.

Please and Thanks

When I used to have dial up, I used Toggle Pictures.exe, I put it in the links toolbar for easy access.

We have a Mac with an older version of Netscape so these didn't apply. However, the principal did and in exploring around Netscape, I found the box to uncheck and all is well. Obviously, it looks different but at least I don't have to wait a minute or two for a page to open.
