    Hmmm....it's supposed to be a .wav file and when I just looked at it said .wavE How'd the "E" get on there??

    I just changed it again so it works again but if it stops working just delete the post :eek:

    Hamsters are lazy. They probably upgraded to a couple of gerbils instead... :D

    Joking aside, it does seem much faster now...

    I am getting this error a lot

    Network Timeout

    The server at www.plowsite.com is taking too long to respond.

    The requested site did not respond to a connection request and the browser has stopped waiting for a reply.

    * Could the server be experiencing high demand or a temporary outage? Try again later.
    * Are you unable to browse other sites? Check the computer's network connection.
    * Is your computer or network protected by a firewall or proxy? Incorrect settings can interfere with Web browsing.
    * Still having trouble? Consult your network administrator or Internet provider for assistance.

    I get the same thing. If you ask me, it has been slower over the last week or so. I know it is not my internet connection as I don't have the problem with anything else, just plowsite.com.
