Default Trouble Getting Into Smokstak?

On my set (94-95 Dell, XPHome with SP II??) often run sites come up on home search page, below search box, when first letter punched in (punch in "s" and smokstak etc Ss show)...highlite smokstak and site comes up--or, it used to, until few days ago...
ISP changed from Google to Yahoo months ago, worked same way on Yahoo (Yahoo OK for everyday stuff, I go to Google for serious research)...
A few days ago, on Yahoo, highliting smokstak didn't get the site, got a page of sites ABOUT smokstak (didn't look on page 2 etc for site)....same on Google...
Now I have to punch in smokstak.com on Google to get site (smokstak.com on Yahoo still gets first page about site, but not site)...
Seems to be only with smokstak; aaca, aths etc still work as before...
Has something happened to site architecture, or is my set just getting senile??

I've had this problem more than once. Usually I blame it on Microsoft. Normally I have Smokstak as a quick link with saved password etc., so one click and I'm logged in. When things lock up (not very often) the only cure that reliably works for me is to go through the Stak login procedure, password and all and it always come back as normal, for however long Microsoft in their infinite allow before they decide to hassle me again.

I've had the same thing on my phone for the last few days. I used to go to Google and then click on smokstak and a Google list comes up and www.smokstak.com is the first one. Now it is nowhere to be seen. Gas Engine Magazine is the first several results and then others, but none that are just smokstak. I have to put in the address to get it. I am still logged in so at least I don't have to do that. I can't type on my phone worth anything. Thought maybe it was just my cheap, old phone. My daughter just got home on Spring break, I'll get her to look at it. She's my cell phone tech.

If you are one who never logs out and wind up having trouble your browser (ANY browser) may have a corrupted cookie.
Most times clearing the cache and cookies and restarting the browser corrects that.
HOWEVER........you'd better remember your user name and password because you WILL have to log in again.......

I wipe my bowsers clean nightly and very rarely experience problems.

Mine's back this morning, too. Just like it always was. I guess it got over its snit.
