It is, at least in part, due to a problem on my box. I had been installing
Fedora on another box and when it finished I tried Google maps - and bingo!
So it is neither me nor my router, but my box. I clearly have to solve this,
but not tonight.

Oh - and your URL opened perfectly on my box, Stephen. I just couldn't get it
to show me anywhere else.

Thanks all for your help.
