Well, unfortunately,I think it's your provider.
I printed out the email with the tech stuff on it and gave it to my husband right after you wrote it. He tried it out again and again, and he couldn't figure it out. He said he would try it out at work tonight to see if another computer would do it or not.
He has suggested the following: Either copy and paste the non-hyperlinked (non-blue or purple) text tothe address bar of your browseror directly click on the following links.
if that doesn't work, try:
His suggestion was to try it without any "www" in front of it, but he was doubtful that that would do the trick. As to the "talanow.com" being a dead site, yes. But www.talanow.com
is not (genealogy site in german). My husband was a little surprised that they didn't try that out (but honestly? My husband is a total nerd aboutinternet stuff, so....
). Try the mywinerecipes.talanow.com without the www in front of it too.
The thing is, is that other people are seeing it.
This not only stumps me, but my husband too. I feel terrible that you can't.
My husband also said that if you could try your site at work or the library or somewhere other than home, you might be in luck. Then, if you've seen it yourself, you might be able to annoy your ISP and tell them only with their
service you can't see it. I hate saying stuff like that, because it seems so mean, but I really mean it. If you are firm and if you've tried it out on someone elses computer (provided taht they are using a different provider), and it worked, I'd complain to the ISP.
All I can say is: that it's using a cgi script as a basis for HTML, has 1 or 2 small java scripts (one to confirm an email address, the second to make a pdf file from a database entry),and that it's readable and usable to others from different parts of the country.
Great, now you guys know the company's secret. Kind of like the recipe to Coca-Cola.
Trust me, this is as frustrating for me as it is for you.
