Forum Problem

by Basil Hall / April 2, 2007 6:54 AM PDT

I do not know if the problem is the same as the one in the earlier thread because I cannot read it. Every time I click on a thread I get an IE pop-up telling me that IE cannot open internet site (gives the address) then, "operation abhorted". This does not happen on other forums or using other addresses.

Obviously it is pointless attempting to contact me through the forum so could a moderator (Marianna) contact me through my email address.
