    Hi Sim,

    Had some issues with these links of "asx.com.au", should it be "www.asx.com.au"

    Cheers,

    Dan

    They work for me on both IE and Firefox? Either address should work.

    Could be your ISP or DNS causing the problems perhaps? Difficult to tell.

    I did note that the audio player wasn't loading in IE correctly - need to fix that.

    Hi Sim,

    Yeah it was the audio that wouldn't download. The video streaming and PDF worked nicely.

    Cheers,

    I can't see the point in investing overseas - Oz has had the best return of all markets over the past 130 years. You would only invest overseas if a market, say maybe china or india, or perhaps a recovering icelandic stock market could show better returns.

    I've fixed the mp3 player so it works in IE ... let me know if you have trouble listening to it.
