I just tried it again, and it refused me... That's what we're seeing, too. We've also been queueing it separately, trying to be neighborly, but I've been wondering, with the backlog that must be building worldwide and the amount of time they've been in this state, if they will come back any time in the distant future. It would seem to me that there's a point beyond which, when they come back up, they're so hammered that they go right back down again. If that were the case, then the symptoms would be very similar to those we're seeing right now. Then again, maybe they're doing just fine. My growing mqueue.aol would seem to indicate otherwise. Maybe someone from AOL would like to dispell this naive point of view, or, if they are having problems, indicate to the North American operators (and those on other planets, like Herr Fleming) what we can do on our end to help them come back up. __ Todd Graham Lewis MindSpring Enterprises [email protected] - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
