Thanks to ALL of you who sent messages on the Malware-Virus warning. First Things website had a Malware attack today. We are working on the problem now. The warning messages should go away by tomorrow afternoon. We have removed the ad script that was causing the problem so there is no chance that you will get an infected browser. It looks like if you run Internet Explorer you won’t see the warning messages but, with Chrome and Firefox you will still see the messages. By the way, the attack came from China.

Was it something we said?

Saturday Update: I am told the problem is well on the way to repair.  No danger.  If anyone can’t get in, please send me an e-mail.  Thanks.
