I've tried twice with no success...I keep filling out the form only to be
unable to connect to the host once it's complete. Has anyone else had this
kind of trouble?


this is a puzzling one.

there is a *lot* of data on the form, so I guess slow transatlantic
links may well time out before it's all sent. I can find no other error
and it seems to work perfectly at this end. There _are_ quite a lot of
timeouts happening, however, so something's amiss.

I have installed a New Button at the very end of the survey. If you
want to try again, then selecting this button will just slap everything
you submit into a big long file and I'll split it and store it by hand.
This will make the submission script quicker and, I hope, prevent timeouts.


Sincere apologies for any inconvenience.

ed, chastened
