    add.woodyswatch.com message

    Today I am seeing an alert message on my screen, when viewing the Lounge, saying "The operation timed out when attempting to contact add.woodyswatch.com"
    I've never had this before. Should I be worried? If so, about what? J.Till

    Where are you trying to go with that URL?
    I can't get anywhere with it as you describe but Woodies Watch main page is at WOODIES ( without the add. )

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    Could be related to advertisements... if they are momentarily unable to be displayed, perhaps you don't really want it fixed. <img src=/S/wink.gif border=0 alt=wink width=15 height=15> Still, we regret any annoying dialogs you may see during this time.

    More seriously... If your firewall or some other intermediary program between your browser and the web is blocking ads, perhaps that is causing the error?? I think that we'll need data from more users before it can be pinned down.

    Would you post the actual bookmark/favorite link that you use to access The Lounge? I don't get anywhere with the link in that message. If I check Woody's Watch, the link to access The Lounge is: http://www.wopr.com/cgi-bin/w3t/wwwthreads.pl

    I think's it's related to IFRAME security settings, but I don't know what program. In IE6 on Windows XP SP2, the ad comes through just fine for me.

    I also had a weird message in the Google Advertising Frame space earlier today which prevented me from logging in, but on retrying I got in. (Do I hear boos?)

    Thanks for that info, looks like the server had a bit of the jitters, it is now operating again.
    Cheers, Claude.
