Adrian,

Agree with the notable bias in ResearchIt. However since there is purportedly a 
scripting guide to help others generate their own scripts, the solution is 
apparently there for anyone who wishes to use it.

Welcome back on the list.

Dave

  Note. I tried to post this reply a week ago, but a problem with a local 
server prevented it from posting. This weekend, the company rerouted its email, 
so this message will also test whether the change has solved the problem. In 
any event, here's the message I wanted to post last Sunday.

  This question about Research It and a US bias has come up before. For 
example, someone said that when checking the weather, they couldn't find the 
English Cambridge; only cities named Cambridge in the US. However, when I enter 
Cambridge, UK in the edit field, I get weather for that city.

  Hi Dorothy, it's not. It's for people who are at work and who requires a 
proxy connection. Research It does have some UK-based sources, but most are US 
yet. Think about it; FS are in the US so they are bound to include US-related 
sources.

  A proxy server is an intermediary between your computer and the server 
hosting the network. It's like a firewall really. It supposedly helps 
organizations by allowing administrators to control what is and isn't allowed 
on the network.
