What bright spark decided to put an application for the TOFA that hasn't got an escape for us poor souls who can't buy off of this site. I have yet to work out what I do to get off other than random tries. You know 'try this, try that' After a while my temper gets the better of me and I start actually swearing at the screen. Then it usually dissapears. Please put an escape button in for my sanity.

Was that

your light drizzle of a brainstorm Suss?

Unfortunately, The Almanac can only ship to the US and I believe Canada.
This has been brought up before.

YB, I think he's having trouble with the ad box ...

Colin, when this ad window pops up, do you see that there is the word "Close" with an X-box next to it in the upper right corner?

I'm thinking that you're referring to the ad that pops up when you enter the Almanac website, where the rest of the window is dark gray ... do I have that right?????

I'm sure somebody can help you with this frustration and turn it into a harmless gnat buzzing away.
