The image slider isn't working for me in Firefox.  Is it working for anyone else?

My images are squashed up.  I assume there were meant to be images between those arrows.

freitasm: I wouldn't worry.


So when should I worry about those sorts of messages in my browser?

When should I actually take security warning seriously?

Should I just be confident that everything is ok when a warning message says that something I assume to be secure, is not?

To my way of thinking this is the sort of thinking that gets us to the WINZ kiosk disaster that just makes us all look like monkeys in IT.

I wish people would put alt tags on images like these.  Great that the key is at the bottom of the page... but really annoying that you have to scroll down to it.  Why can't they just have alt tags so you can see what they are?
