    Hi,
    Strange, my page is accepted by McAfee, Norton and Sophos. I suspect using
    an IP address may be an issue.
    I have now migrated my domain so page now at
    http://www.rvsc.co.uk/Interactive/Forum/forum.html .

    Regards, Steve

    Steve,

    OK, no problem seeing the page now. Nicely done. I'm kinda into the
    Nabble route at the moment, having invested at least 20 plus hours into
    it but I've made a note about Simple so I'll investigate at the earliest
    opportunity.
