Pine Forest Observatory is 10 years old in April new
      #5737405 - 03/16/13 09:39 PM

Hi everyone!

My Backyard Observatory will turn 10 years old in April this year! I just wanted to mention to the owners of this fine building that I thank them for 10 years of wonderful, uninterrupted use of this fine piece of work! I use it all the time whether it's cloudy nights or clear nights!

Love it!

Thanks again Scott and Diane!

Better check your link, Lenny. I just got a virus warning message from Avast when I clicked on it.

Same here; says Trojan Horse was blocked from this site.

I checked it again. It worked fine. The URL link on this was http://backyardobservatories.com

type that in your url and see if you get the same message because if you do then something is wrong with their website unless something is wrong with mine??

No issues with the website here. BTW - Wadsworth Observatory (formerly Urban Observatory) is BYO #1 and is still going strong, though currently empty.

Thanks Lenny!

The website is fine. Avast is the problem. It reads something on the main page as a virus. We haven't had time to try to "fix" our site and I can't get a reply from them in Czechoslovakia or where ever they're at.

A couple folks have told me that updating to their latest version fixed it.

I'm running the latest version, & still get the Trojan alert. However, I know your site's safe, so I just ignore the warning in this case.

I'm on the latest version of Avast and still getting it, too.

I would ignore it, but I know there's a virus in there because my computer started sneezing yesterday. Just wish the darn thing would learn to turn it's head when it does that.

That is so weird because a few of my friends clicked to BYO website and they are not getting this. I also understand that BYO has been having this issue so I don't know why or what is going on...

I think it worked fine with the latest version and clearing your cookies. Diane and I are going to try to address this Avast issue in the next few days.

Doesn't seem right that I shoud buy $600 website software just to have them show something as a virus.

I tried contacting them again using this form http://www.avast.com/contact-form.php?loadStyles rather than the e-mail contact on their site. Hopefully I hear back this time and can finally resolve this problem.
