the site appears to be down. The following message was posted on the RNIB 
Readers Forum on Thursday.
Please note that on Friday, 19th December 2008, the RNIB Booksite and 
therefore, the Bookstream Bookclub service will be offline for approximately 
half an hour during the afternoon. The site will be down while we update part 
of the catalogue. The update will correct a technical problem which has 
prevented us being able to include Tales of Beedle the Bard onto the site. 
Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.

I wonder if the two are connected.

  Is anyone able to use the RNIB Booksite at the minute?

  I am running JAWS 9 and Internet Explorer 7 on an Advent 4211 with Windows XP.

  When I have tried to open the site over the last 2 days, JAWS announces that 
the site has no links.  The title bar is only displaying the URL, but the 
status bar indicates that the site has loaded.

  The situation does not change if I leave the PC and come back half an hour 

  If people are able to load the site, I'd be grateful for any suggestions as 
to why my PC is behaving in this way.

  Many thanks,
