Please turn off your caps lock. :-)

The 'numbers' you are talking about are, if you will, the 'phone number' of the web site. When you enter a name, the information is sent to one of several "phone book" web sites that provide the 'number' to the site. For some reason, this is no longer working.

I don't know how to fix this.
