Hi Steve,

Took a quick trip to your site. It's hicupped for some reason. You might might
might want to check it out. I think it was caused by some "Banner" advertising.
Everything was OK until I used a second link from the site and then the Banner
was at the top and all of the info about how to do things was shoved off to the
right. Everything was there until I clicked something to go back, at which time
there were a whole lot of dashes on the left side and I could not scroll
horizontally to see "ALL" of your stuff. I know this isn't real helpful
information. It happened so unexpectedly that my powers of observation were
caught off guard. Hope it help a little bit!
