[bksvol-discuss] Re: I give up!

Maithe, if this is indeed a security problem, please understand that u
can still transmit files while making your computer secure.  The
firewall should not be removed--all u need do is unblock whatever it
is the firewall's blocking.

I transmit files to bookshare routinely while my computer is behind
both a software firewall & the firewall active in my router, which,
btw, since no1 explained it 2 u, is the piece of hardware u likely use
2 connect 2 the internet if u have a broadband connection.

When I had a problem w/my synopsis, it did tell me that--u do have to
scroll down the message in order 2 c wussup.  At any rate, it would
appear by your address you're in the southeastern United States,
which, depending on how far east, would put u 2-3 hours ahead of me--3
if you're in the eastern timezone, as I suspect, or 2 if in central.
I could call & talk w/yall at about 3 my time, which would b 6 eastern
or 5 central & we could hopefully get 2 the bottom of this once & for
all & get u able to submit.

Remember that the short synopsis is 200 *characters* (not words) &
that includes spaces.  I just use the filenames bookshare gives, both
in the rtf & zip versions.

Let me know if you're unable 2 resolve this by yourself & we'll track
it down.  Actually, let me know if u resolved it also so I can take it
off the to-do-question mark list lol.
