     Still nothing here.  When it began I thought I may have received a trojan 
from the listing I had been looking at, so I shut down and restarted the 
laptop, which was a waste of time.  There's also the possibility that 
individual ISPs would be blocking access due to malware content, which would 
not surprise me.

     Yesterday I tried to pay for an item, but when I went to the Paypal page 
it came up with a shipping cost that was 30% higher than in the listing.  The 
seller thought it may have been because I was initially using a PO Box address 
and the shipper was FedEx, so I changed it to the street address and tried 
again with no change.  The seller had to go to the trouble of doing it manually 
and sending an invoice.
