After seeing all the reports, I just checked the site in Safari, Firefox, and IE8. All looks good from my standpoint.

Well clearing the cache worked, I was about to complain about revisions as it relates to Chrome.

Thanks Bill for the instruction page on cache clearing. I was confusing clearing history with empty cache. Followed instructions and all is well once again.

Bill you are so amazing that you don't even have to do anything and it gets fixed. You will have to teach me how to do that.

Sounds like it thinks your using a mobile device. Any chance you could PM me the make and model of the machine? Maybe I can tweek the mobile version of the home page.

is this some sort of cookie issue?

Bill - the new pop-ups look nice. But when I try to touch elsewhere on the screen to get rid of the pop-up and read other threads on my iPad, I can't get rid of them and the box blocks other threads. Is that just an issue with touchscreen?

Sorry, I don't provide technical support for Apple products.
Just kidding!!

I have a touchscreen on my Dell laptop and it works "ok", but I'm not sure how iPad works. Anyone else have this problem with the iPad? I suspect it goes into the link when you place your finger on it? Not sure how if it allows you to hover over text link a mouse.

Hahahahaha! The iPad is the only Apple computer I will EVER own and it was bought solely for entertainment! I'm still partial to my 3 Dell's for real work! If I place my finger on a thread, the pop-up comes up. If I tap twice then it goes into the link. The problem is just that I can't view about 2-4 links above and below the one the pop-up is showing. Oh well, it's minor and just one more thing that makes me not want a Mac!
