Cliff, Colin, et Listers,

I was too busy to follow the link to Colin's Website when he first posted
it, but after reading this last post I tried my luck. Noticing the dangling
participle ("foo") that was wrapped onto the next line, I did a copy and
then pasted into my address bar and, voila!, there I was at what appears,
despite the very long URL, to be the home page of the British Motorcars of
Southern New Mexico. So far so good. Then the problems began. I was able to
look at the first picture, but for anything more you need to register with
Excite. OK, no problem, just uncheck all those nuisance requests to send
you info, ask questions, etc. I get registered with my user name and
password, then on to the Excite Communities Directory where I expect to
find Colin's Website listed under "Autos/Antiques". A cursory search finds
another British car site, but no British Motorcars of Southern New Mexico.
Well, OK, back to the URL given below. Again I try to look at the second
picture and again I get the same request to register to see more pictures,
which I do using my new username and password. But, despite registering
again, and again, still no luck. Maybe I'll try later, but it was a
frustrating experience to this point. And, of course, I think all of us
have reservations about how much we are willing to give in to commercialism
in order to get these "free" services on the Net.
