Thanks for the great resources as always! I think the Special Olympics URLs may need the "www" in the address on the hyperlink. Without it they are timing out, but I checked out the actual website careers page and they are posted and live there with 'www' but otherwise the same URL.

Ryan - thanks - they worked ok for me w/o the "www" - but I supposes different browsers/settings for some people might not make it come up properly - so, I'll drop the www in just to be on the safe side. thanks for feedback.

I thought about that after my comment, I'm in Firefox just so you can file that away for future knowledge of what may or may not work in different browsers. Thanks! Have a good one!
