This is a highly graphical site and contains a large amount of data. Net
congestion can also slow page loads as thousands of people are accessing
pages simultaneously. Despite being on one of the best servers in the nation,
with dynamic connection to the Net hub, there will be times when the site
will be slow due to the sheer volume of visitors. Patience is a virtue!
- We recommend using the latest version
of either Netscape or Internet Explorer. Netscape 3.0, 3.0.1 and 3Gold
work fine with the site. It is important that your Browser be java capable.
- Keep your cache! We
update daily, often 2 or 3 times a day when stories are breaking. Not dumping
your cache from your most recent visit allows the main page and other key
pages to load extremely fast. Simply hit reload/refresh in your
web browser and the newest material or graphics will pop right in. We will
always be a highly graphical site, so this trick helps alot. That and a
much faster modem!

and Can't Find A Story?
If you still cannot locate it, try the Search Engine using keywords and
combination terms. If an article has vanished

asking where it went. The sheer volume of
articles and timely new stories makes it impossible for us to maintain
a correspondence with everyone about items which may have been removed
for a variety of reasons. Thanks for understanding!
- Text & Printing:
- You may consider changing the font in your browser
to a SANSERIF typeface, which is easier to read than a SERIF typface. What's
the difference? Serif fonts are those which have endcaps, like typical
newspaper print. Sanserif fonts are straight, no endcaps & make for
easier reading. Your browser preferences/choices file has a place where
you can set whatever typeface you desire. Some good Sanserif choices are
Helvetica, Arial or Geneva. Printing some pages may be a problem
depending on your computer. Some people may find that the background tries
to print, or on a black page, nothing prints at all. In such cases, we
recommend that you simply Select All of the text on the page (there are
key commands for this on every computer and in every browser type. Check
your menu bar), copy it and paste it into a plain text file and print from

but please realize that sometimes we're snowed under with working on the

are welcome on any piece we post, and a fair editorial decision will be
made regarding posting such submissions.
