    For some reason I couldn't get the first one to show up. Got a white screen with, "Not found" at the top left. The second one showed up ok.

    retired - I checked the URL a couple of times, just seconds
    ago, and it pulls up each time for me. Please try again.

    Ed, still no go. I'm guessing it's the computer. I have an Apple G5 and I have noticed quiet often I can open some links people here have posted and some I can't. Sometimes I get a white screen, with, "Not found" like here. Other times, as when it's a video, I just get a small black screen where the video is supposed to play, but it doesn't. Especially on that site titled "wimpy." I can never get that to open.

    The latter is frustrating because it's usually something funny or a little risque and all of the comments about it being cool and such are frustrating to read. Everyone else is enjoying the video and I'm in the dark, literally.

    Oh well, such is life.

    Blessed be there retired. Hope you find what
    you have been missing. Frankly, I still have not
    gone through all that information. It is just bunch
    to absorb.
