Max, if I click on your link to the gallery it works fine.

If I try to add the extra bit onto the main AWADabilia page myself, I get the page not found message.

I got to the page OK, but find no reference to caradea. Is she one and the same with teresag? (who I don't seem to have found anywhere else.) >>

<If so,> then I must have a tetch about the confusing-ness of using different names in different contexts. Have a little more respect for us ancient ones whose mental processes have slowed down.

<If not,> then, which one is the real caradea?

and now, Bob's your uncle.

Actually, I think he's my grandfather!! Bobyoungbalt, you look almost exactly like my Grandpa Gierschick. I did a double-take when your picture came up.

I had it bookmarked with Gallery1 and got 502 notice. Changed it to Gallery4, still got 502 notice. I see I'm in good company.

Well, we're making progress. Today when I clicked on the link you say works, the page did open, instantaneously. However, not all the pictures download, including the most recent. The frame and title shows, but the frame is blank with the little red x in it. This is on all 4 pages. Clicking the "reload" button doesn't help. Isn't there some maori ceremony for exorcising electronic demons?

OK-- so what OS --(Operating system) are you using? (Windows? Mac OS? Unix? Linex? do you know?
and what browser? Netscape? which version? IE? AOL's browser? Spider? again, do you know?

AOL in its many forms does not support pictures as well as Netscape or IE (MS internet Explorer.) and Netscape and IE handle some HTML and XML differently --

any of you who have replies to your posts mailed to you have seen HTML-- on the board we use square brackets like {b} and {/b} for bold-- but when it is mailed to you it shows up as <font =b> or in the case of colors
<font color=white> the < > are HTML brackets..
HTML==Hyper Text Markup Language and XML is eXtended Markup Language

it is unfortunate-- when HTML was first divised-- it worked almost everywhere and the same everywhere-- but now..
It is a real pain to write a page that works in every browser-- and since Max is using a "web page" software generator --arachnophilia 4.0 it is even more difficult for him to make the pages "multi browser accessable..It would be worse if he use MS Front Page..

Web page generators are programs that allow you to "write" a page -- similar to creating a page on Word or Word Perfect-- and the soft ware "translates" all the details into an ML language. it makes it easy to creat a page-- but by relying on the software to create solutions, you often don't get Perfect ones--

Ok Max-- what browser do you use? we should try to use the same--and then we are more likely to see what you see..

Helen spake> Ok Max-- what browser do you use? we should try to use the same--and then we are more likely to see what you see..

Well, I've tried IE, Netscape, Opera, Lynx, Links, w3m, Konqueror, Galeon, Mosaic, Mozilla, Amaya, and this new Pocket Rocket dealy, and I still don't see caradea's picture!!!

I use WIN98 and MSIE. I can use Netscape.

edit after posting
I just tried going to the site with Netscape and it worked fine -- opened immediately and promptly downloaded all pics.

Max explains: Sorry, people, that was a joke...

Come along now, Max. If I'm claiming to use umpteen browsers (including text-only ones...) and ing at you, I figured you'd safely know that I caught onto your joke! Just more prodding for Caradea!!!
