Virus stops me from

for the past 5 weeks I have not been able to get to this site while at work. I’m a junkie. There, I said it!

I look forward to skimming the forum at lunch to get the latest.

Then 5 weeks ago, I started getting a message about “this site cannot be reached.”

Turns out it is a virus. I just have to wait until they can figure out how to get rid of it.

Below is the text from an email message I got from tech support.

It’s good to know they weren’t blocking the site as they do with others. Now I just have to wait. Arrrrghh:(

There’s always the newsgroup (assuming you have access from work).

If not that, the email list. Is it still “”?

Yes and no. The newsgroup is always there but not always connected to
the web-based forum. I have stopped complaining about it.
