I think what's happened is - it's a new site and word has "got round" today about it so everyone is hitting it at once!
Just had another go myself, got in and tried a search of all the Directories they have on-line for your Lankshear - as you say, nothing. Don't give up on it Ron, they say more will be added in time.
