With the switch to the new web site I had the same problem as others with the AM Forum not appearing.  I blamed it on the extremly slow Penn State dialup "service", I get it free as a retired employee.  I was considering a paid dialup service.  I have a Windows XP Home version that I have been keeping up-to-date.  I have another old junker computer with a corporate version of XP Professiional and an older version of Explorer.  I tried the AM Forum on it and it worked fine.  Came back the the new computer and disabled firewalls and Norton Antivirus, but still no luck with the AM Forum.  I then realized I had Netscape 7 on the computer (needed it to access the FCC a while ago).  I tried it an the AM Forum popped up quickly.  All I can say is use anything but IE and you probably won't have any problems accessing the AM Forum.

I use Mazilla Firefox.  Still keep the IE icon on the desktop because occasionally certain sites won't work in Firefox.  I especially like Firefox's tabs feature.

I must be living good. Both IE and Firefox work fine getting to and using the forum.  Some slight resizing of certain parts of sections in the forum, windowing both Firefox and IE side by side on the screen, but otherwise, no differences. Grin

I don't have any problems and I'm running Internot Exploiter and Windoze Eks Pee Homely Edition.
