    Any clues as to what the story is about for those of us not wishing to have to 'enrol'?

    Bowlie seems to have left, so...

    It's a story about a product called BearVault and how it has been "conquered" by "...a relatively tiny, extremely shy middle-aged black bear named Yellow-Yellow..." in the popular Adirondacks.

    Ah. Thank you for the enlightenment. However, I doubt if even 'super rugged polycarbonate' is proof against a chainsaw!

    I can view the article without problems. Must be some kind of location check, but I have no idea why The Netherlands is OK and the UK isn't...

    It worked for me! But maybe I enrolled yonks ago...

    And I'm sure Bowlie realised that the Donovan song was "(They call me) Mellow Yellow"... (YouTube video with fairly rough/distorted mono soundtrack of the song). Those were the days when Saffron was a completely acceptable girl's name.

    It worked for me too, and I am pretty sure I can't have enrolled from this PC as I rebuilt it a couple of weeks ago.

    Apologies, I had forgotten that the NY Times requires 'free registration'. They've recently merged their web-site with the web-site of the International Herald Tribune (which they now own 100%). The IHT site didn't require registration and I'm guessing those with an IHT cookie on board won't be sent down the Registration route.

    Thanks John, for reminding me that "I'm just mad about Saffron, and Saffron's made about me ..." (note the name of the yellow smilie)

    I can't remember the copyright rules - so please delete this if I'm breaking them. I'm going to quote some of the text from the article and provide a link to it's source. Hope that's OK.
