Maybe go through them and change "l1a1.com" to "falfiles.com".

You're talking about an IE favorites file, or a Netscape bookmarks file? Open it with a text editor (not a word processor) and do a find/replace to change l1a1.com to falfiles.com. Save a copy before changing the file in case it no workie. The reason not to use a word processor, is that a w.p. may add hidden page format data that your browser might not like.

Yep, you should just need to change the url from L1A1.com to FALFILES.com and you should be good.

Though typing in www.L1A1.com (http://www.L1A1.com) will get you to the FAL Files homepage, it will NOT get you into the board. Even if you enter through that URL, you'll notice it change to falfiles.com as you go into the discussion board. Without getting technical, suffice it to say that it has to do with how the board's scripts are written.

You'll have to do the changes listed above to make your links to the board work - simple and effective. :)

I did change a couple of the urls as suggested, no luck. I'll try again.
