Hi Rob:

Bullseye - give the man a pint!!!!   I did search for phpbb on Google,
but when I retried after blocking the IPs with Snitch I did different
searches which were of course OK.  I didn't make the connection with phpBB.

However I would still love to know where these requests in my first post
were coming from.  I've checked again and they aren't there (with or
without Snitch) so something odd may have been happening.  I'm not a
great lover of widgets but it has made me prune what few there are down
to the minimum.

Thanks for the help.
