Notice to AOL users
Unfortunately AOL has a number of features which prevents users from
getting the full benefit of the internet. Two major problems are:
At the moment there is nothing you can do about these problems other than to stop using AOL
and switch to a better service instead.
- AOL operate their own cache system which means that they store any page
you ask for in their own system so that when you ask for it again, they don't
go back to the original website for it, but give you back the page they stored
themselves. This means that any pages which are regularly updated here (eg. menus, information
pages, results) won't be visible to you - instead, you'll get a copy of the page as it was maybe
a few days or a week earlier.
- AOL frequently block all mail originating from some other Internet Service Providers. Recently they blocked
all mail from users of Wanadoo, Freeserve, and Orange (these are all actually the same company now).
This means that if you use AOL you sometimes won't receive any mail sent to you by anyone using those other
ISPs - this includes replies to queries which are sent from this website.
Consequently, if you are with AOL and are making a query here our reply might not reach you.
