When I login the browser says to try again in a few minutes.


   Too many users are hitting the server at the same

   time.  This should be a rare occurrence but if not,

   check the "IDEAS News" to see if there was a server

   problem.  We may give you additional time to make up

   for the lost time.


The program is not running.


   The following are possible reasons for this:

   1.  Our server is down.  This is rare but if so and

       the downtime is more than 4 hours, we will extend

       your expiry date by the time lost.

   2.  An ISP server is down.  This will be beyond our

       control but since many sites will be affected the

       downtime should be small.

   3.  Your "temp internet files" memory is full.  Use

       your browser to clear the memory.

   4.  A slow connection can make it seem that the

       program is not downloading; check that the

       bandwidth is what you expect - you may need to

       reboot your router or your ISP's POP may be

       having difficulty.


The program screen is too small.


   In your screen settings, reduce the resolution of your

   screen to SVGA (800x600) or even larger, VGA
