Funny you should ask! <G> Actually, I had @cpafug.blkcat.com on all the
pages, then blkcat.com decided to change jobs and move 'cross country. He
the system to his buddy at pcbuddy.com; I went in and changed _all_ the
addresses. THEN, pcbuddy started having problems upstream and all Internet
traffic died. Sooo, I went and changed a few key addresses to @erols.com.
On my HD where I keep the masters, those are the two addresses -- pcbuddy
and erols. However, after I got the complaints, I went back to rootsweb and
looked again -- sure'nuff the blkcat.com addresses were there. I reloaded
the now-current versions with both pbbuddy and erols, and am now waiting to
see how long they take to revert.

Yeah, I prefer to keep erols for lists and other stuff I just read. The
computer it's on is rather inconvenient for anything more complex. :(

Apparently, it was someone who only learned of the pages recently.

Yeah, I found that out the hard way early on.

Usually. <G> Unless of course I commit one of the dumb errors, like
forgetting to close a > or a " or / I ended up with the whole blasted page
underlined one time because I had missed a / in the third line. :((

Hmmm? how would that affect what's in the code?
