  1. For some reason I can no longer open your text links. Not sure what you have changed but it is disappointing.

    • Sorry about that. Haven’t changed anything. If you were using IE, you might want to see if you can access the links using Chrome. I’ve had reports of accessibility issues recently with IE.
