    Possible problem link - help requested

    Please go to this post and click on the second link (the physicstoday.org one). If it forwards you to an, um, inappropriate website, please PM me ASAP. Otherwise, just enter your tally in the poll above. (At least one member is having problems with this link - I need to know if it's a general one or just him. I at least am not having any problems.)

    Please only do this if you are 18+ as it's allegedly a very inappropriate website.
    Everything I need to know I learned through Googling.

    So you didn't get to Discharge Tubes?

    Actually; I was there this morning too, so count me in as OK double.

    Sure is. They glow... and gaseous. Kinky.

    Anyway, It may have something to do with the top of the page. I assume it's space for an ad (the right 2/3 of the top), but on my browser it says "this page cannot be displayed".

    I was going to mention that--I see an ad for Earthlink. **shudder**

    All looks normal to me, although I also get the "page cannot be displayed" error at the top.

    I also get the Physics Today article on Sprites with the "page cannot be displayed" error. Oddly, when I go to the November 2001 issue through the AIP website I get a very different looking page. The url for this one is
    Code:
    http://ptonline.aip.org/journals/doc/PHTOAD-ft/vol_54/iss_11/41_1.shtml
    vice the one from the suspect post. Whoever linked it was using an older version of the page I think.
    "I often say that when you can measure what you are speaking about, and express it in numbers, you know something about it; but when you cannot measure it, when you cannot express it in numbers, your knowledge is of a meagre and unsatisfactory kind." - William Thompson, 1st Baron Lord Kelvin

    "If it was so, it might be, and if it were so, it would be, but as it isn't, it ain't. That's logic!" - Tweedledee

    This isn't right. This isn't even wrong. - Wolfgang Pauli

    Thanks to everyone who tried this out. I think we've proven that it's a problem with one particular member's computer.

    Not necessarily one person, ToSeek.
    I clicked, and when the PhysicsToday site appeared I was immediately redirected to another link. Although it was benign. When I disabled active scripting, I remained on the PhysicsToday page. Something about the embedded reference to AIP.org causes the redirect.

    btw - this from my work notebook - they have not yet upgraded us from version 6 of IE.
