Please try to find the offending cookie in your cookies.txt file (anything with
mentiones j2.com in the first column) and post it here. Although it isn't
exactly an error if you have a cookie which is before 1980 (I have several in
1971) or after 2038. The server shouldn't give an error for this.

There are no j2 ones in cookies.txt - I checked in the cookie manager and there
are several j2.com and jsource.com (also relates to this site) SESSION cookies,
if that helps. Perhaps I should raise it with j2.com?

This certainly sounds like a server issue.  The message you are reporting is 
coming from the server.

Have you tried this with other browsers -- namely netscape 4.x and any flavor 
IE.  If they give the same problem then there's no doubt that it's a server 
issue.

It works fine with IE5.5, that is what I normally use but I will e-mail the site
and ask if they are aware of the issue.

Unable to fix unless I can test this out and, as the reporter commented, this 
requires that I have an account.  So I'm going to have to close this out as 
WONT-FIX.  If reporter wants this investigated further, he'll have to e-mail me 
privately and give me his username and password so I can test it out.
