Update on blown up new amp

Update on blown up new amp
Some time back I posted a message about receiving a new boutique amp that I fired up with a disconnected speaker lead. This resulted in (as I now know) a blown output transformer. There was certainly some other damage as well, based on the snaps, crackles, pops, loud HUMMMM, and flashes that I saw at the time she blew.  
Then in a later separate thread, to make a long story short, I was asking people to keep a lookout for the amp because it was taking so long to get back to the builder I was worried it was stolen from the US Mail.  
In that thread I revealed that the amp in question is a Kendrick GigRig. 35-40 watts, 2X6L6GC, big transformers, 1X12 alnico, single volume, bass, and treble controls, normal and bright inputs, and onboard 3-knob reverb, tweed cover. Nice little amp. Lightweight. I haven't played it yet (!), obviously, but based on the other Kendricks I've owned I expect it to sound pretty amazing.  
I got an email message from Gerald Weber. Repairs are underway, and he is doing everything at his expense. He said I was a valued customer and he wanted to make sure the amp was correct in every way.
And now, a word from our sponsors:

I still don't see email addresses in my messages even though I do include it.

There's a little "@" symbol in the upper right corner of the frame, next to your name. You're supposed to be able to click that to e-mail people, but it doesn't work for me. :( I just get a blank screen in that frame. I guess T-boy didn't test it with IE? Or maybe my computer is too antiquated to read it?

The @ sign & email
I don't think it's IE - it's whatever your system and/or IE thinks is the default mail program.

well, clicking on the @ gets you to another scripted page, which itself has a hyperlinked email address, which you can then click on and launch your default email program.  
it's a two-step process to avoid the spambots.

The second scripted page with the e-mail address is what isn't showing up on my screen, it's just a blank white page. It used to work for me when T-boy first started using it, but for some reason, it doesn't now. :(  
If I right click the blank screen and choose "Character Coding", then "Auto-detect", then "Auto-detect (All)", my e-mail form comes up with the address already filled in. Strange...

What version of IE are you using, Chris? The script behavior described by Ken is exaclty what's supposed to happen for IE, but what you're getting sounds like a broken version of the Netscape behavior.
