now the web site works just fine. Thought I would let you know in case someone else is having the same problem."

Possibilities . . .
- You are trying to view web sites from within a secured Internet such as an office network computer that has limitations
on outside connectivity...
- There are specific filters in place within your own security program that are not not allowing NC-17+ ratings to be viewed or displayed...
- Your ISP is controlling
viewable domains or some such controls...(not likely unless with (AOL) or other censer-controlling group).
- Your browser has been hijacked by malicious programs
and does not allow specific sites to be viewed... Visit Clean-PC.Com
- Your email program is rewriting the links to something broken. Try hand typing in the addresses. (safest way
- One huge issue is security settings. There are layers and layers of security settings; in your browser, in your office network, norton, AOL... it goes on and on.
We've discovered that some of our spam problems come from legitimate subscribers who have "FunWebProducts" installed in their computer. It's a piece of "adware" and most of you probably don't even know it's on your computer. If you do have it installed, you'll no longer be able to use our "send to a friend" program. If you get an error message that it's been detected while trying to send a cartoon - just Google "No fun with FunWebProducts ". I'm not able to help you delete this program. Here's a site that can help you detect and remove it if you'd like.: FunWebProducts Removal and Detection
No matter what cartoon I try to send through your "Send to a Friend" form.... when my friend clicks the link it goes to your main page, NOT the specific cartoon:
You probably have "referrer information" turned off in your browser's security settings -- so our script can't tell where the link is coming from, and it just defaults back to our home page instead.
I am fully enjoying the cartoons that you are sending me, but I cannot understand what I need to do about the ones with squares and the red X in the top left corner. I'm sure the X has something to do with it. My neighbors can't figure it out either. We have read everything about them and still don't get them. Can you help me? Thank you
Computer and it's processing programs(Adobe Photoshop or MS Paint) do not recognize the file or, the file does not exist on the web or, a program like Norton Internet Securities has been programmed to NOT display images on the web that fit a certain criteria (like standard sized web banners for spam/trojan purposes).
- Double check that you have a program like Microsoft's "MS Paint" or Adobe's Photoshop. If the file is a .jpg .gif, then a simple picture program should be able to view the image
- double check that the image is actually on the web.
- revisit your protection programs and make sure it is not blocking certain file types or "Image Sizes" like Norton Internet Securities (NIS)
You may need a WMV
Player update, this is free from Microsoft. I think this is the most
popular player for the PC world. I'm on a Macintosh, and wmv's wouldn't work
until I downloaded the latest free player. Macintosh/Apple Users: You may want to purchase Flip4Mac, a module created for your QuickTime Player. $29 http://www.flip4mac.com/wmv.htm
- You might need new Plug-ins or Medial Players for your browser.
Be sure you have the latest browser updates.
- You might not have enough memory (RAM)
- You might only be using a dial-up connection. You need High Speed Internet Access for many of these cartoons. Be sure you have the latest

We only send links to jokes that we think are great - and only once in awhile.
If we are turned in for spamming - we'll get in deep trouble with the company
we use to send out alerts. I'm trying to send out a cartoon alert once a week. Sometimes more often, sometimes only once a month.
If you know how :-) I think they are downloaded onto your computer in a cache
file and might not be under the same name as the cartoon. You have to read
the source code and find the file name. Sometimes your computer will rename
the file. The way I'm able to pay for the site is by having people refer family
and friends back to the site and if a google ad interests them and they go
to a google advertising website - we make a small amount. It adds up. Having
people download cartoons on a direct basis would kill my bandwidth. I was fined
over $850 by my web host for going over bandwidth so now I have a dedicated
server at $200 per month and $100 each month for the cartoon alert program.
Sorry this is so difficult. I'm considering adding a link to the cartoon, but
do not wish
Keep those questions coming
Thanks So Much . . . Suzzanne
