Note:  This appears to be very recent comments on the "mouse-over" phenomena.

    The original motivation for these web pages was my interest in psychology. 
So imagine my surprise and disappointment when I discovered that the links in both 
Online Self-Help  and  Online Psychology Compilations  no longer worked.  Notice that the
blog entry quoted above says that BOTH Online Self-Help  and  Online Psychology Compilations 
no longer worked.  This is consistent with my memory.  But now Online Self-Help works, while
some of Online Psychology Compilations still does not.

    It took eleven days, but I've finally fixed the URLs for most of the references in  Online Self-Help and Online Psychology Compilations. Unfortunately, at the time of this entry, I was still confounding the two entries, so I'm unable to say which page had fixed URLs and which did not.  I also don't seem to have a clear record of how I fixed them.  I do have very clear memories, but those memories are strongly contradicted by the currently available evidence.     



WORK SPACE

Windows 7, which I'm currently using, has a function which is sometimes referred to as "mouse over" or "Aero".  Since I'm finding it very useful, I'm going to describe it briefly just to be sure you understand the following discussion.     

When the desktop is inactive, that is, it's not waiting to receive more input or to "Save" the page, passing the mouse over a link causes an exact copy of that link to appear at the bottom of the screen. 

    For example: 

Searching Google for "Psychological Self-Help" located 4,040,000 references: 
https://www.psychologicalselfhelp.org/    ^ 

    and when you pass the mouse over the link, an exact copy of the link appears at the bottom of the page. 

   However, when you pass the mouse over this identical-appearing link:  

Psychological Self-Help (PsySH) 
http://www.psychologicalselfhelp.org/    &

    you get this very different link at the bottom of the page: 
   
www.msplinks.com/MDFodHRwOi8vd3d3LnBzeWNob2xvZ2ljYWxzZWxmaGVseC5vcmcv 

    Try it yourself. 

    And not only do the two identical-appearing links provide very different mouse overs, one is active and the other produces an error message reading: 
    "The server at www.msplinks.com is taking too long to respond."  

    So, what is "www.msplinks.com"? 

Searching Google for "www.msplinks.com" finds 477,000 references:

So why do some of the links work some of the time and not all of the links all of the time?   MySpcLk  provides a clue.  At the very bottom of that page there is a "Work Space" which has two identical copies of the same link, one of which works while the other doesn't.  I don't remember it at all, but it looks as though I found the second link by searching Google for the title.

    I'm still working on this, but I think this may be  Online Psychology Compilations   ^ before the MySpace Links were removed.  I counted them and there are 60 links with msp (MySpace Link) corruptions.       
    I stumbled on this while looking for something else.
