programming errors

I tried to join a web designers' forum but got a "busy" message when I tried to submit my information. Then I went to my body challenge journal and wrote an entry and got an error message. Seriously irritating. I am trying to keep a record in that journal of how I am doing with the challenge, what gains I am seeing, what problems I am having. So that I don't lose today's post, I'm putting it here:

A different kind of popup ad, that isn't a real popup ad, comes in here these days - the Special K thing. REally irritating, and isn't killed by my popup killers.

My weight is not dropping in the absurd way it was initially, but seems to be stabilizing, which is encouraging. I don't yet notice a difference in the way clothes fit but expect maybe I will in a week or so. I am starting to have more energy again.

Yesterday I did a walk up Orcutt to Broad, got some tea at the coffee place, then walked down Broad to Industrial Way, went home by the railroad tracks. It's about 45 minutes, and my knees weren't liking it at all, so I was taking it easy. Not satisfying because I was too aware of the pain and was not walking fast, so my breathing did not get going as it does on the bike.

I think bicycling is good, better than walking, but I don't want to do just bicycling for aerobic activity. Maybe I can get back into some kind of exercise video.

I finally found the "contact" page on Discovery.com, and sent this:

Information needed National Body Challenge

Comments I love that you offered this challenge for free but am disappointed in two things: several of the tools do not work (exercise, message board for example, and today even the journal won't work); and the fact that the six persons you chose for the body challenge are all under 40. It is much more difficult to make body improvements when you are older, and I would like to see someone going through this, as I am. I am doing well so far in the challenge, incidentally. For whatever reason, I'm ready for it.
