    Hello Nick,

    thanks for the post.

    I sent the links to a friend but they don't seem to open.

    Do you know if the site is down, or just overloaded maybe?

    regards,

    Pops right up here. And my connection is subpar at the moment. Maybe a routing issue from your location?

    OK, thanks - I'll try later. My friend is also in this area, so maybe the same problem.

    Your more than welcome rich. My links are good just a little odd looking so i will change them :D As Ron says it's more of a routing issue from your location and should clear hopefully soon

    Regards
