1. Our web server is getting tweaked this week and as a result some links are behaving strange. We're working on getting everything back to normal ASAP.

    I replaced the phone line from the box to my dsl. It is the only thing on this line- my phone is on the other one with the dsl filter. I have already noticed faster load times.
    Perhaps this was my problem, but I wonder still why it was only on this site I was having issues. We shall see...

    BTW: 50ft of phone cord was $7.60

    hmm you shouldn't be using that much telephone lead. If necessary fit a wifi router near the phone socket, then fit a wifi card in your pc.

    Tim, the whole thing is that coolscifi is the only website that does this. No other sites I go to or forums I post to have these issues. That error message was only posted once.
