I havenít experienced any more peculiar happenings on this website in the last few days.
Wilbur, youíre the man.
Doug, Iíd like to thank you for your supportive post.
For a while there I felt like Chicken Little.

It was a strange thing as some folks experienced it and some didn't. I just worked on it until Y'all said it was fixed and then quit before I created additional problems. I never saw the problem!!!

Regrading some seeing the problem and some not, another site I use (I think hosted by GoDaddy and shut down by them until fixed) had a problem with literally hundreds of infected files. But not everyone had a problem... it seems that some browser/setting/extension/anti-virus combinations were effective at preventing the redirects.

That's a little bit funny John...funnier to me than it should be. I write stuff down to keep track but can't keep track of where I wrote it.

I have not seen this problem. I am using AVG free for my antivirus and Firefox for my browser.
