Thanks Keith,

I disabled Adblock Plus for the CCL site and things got a bit better, as in links actually working, but now I keep getting 'page not found' errors. I find it hard to see that as anything but shoddy website design/maintenance.

When I said "That makes me worry about Linux compatibility.." I meant with CCL's systems. They seem very Microsoft-centric. Maybe David was just lucky that his works...

Try clearing your browser history and cache and re-send the request to the site. 

A computer build - bare-bones - is just that.  The architecture will accept any operating system installed upon it.  The fact that CCL are Microsoft-biased just means they won't be able to advise on the OS installed as they don't support Linux (their loss!) but there is plenty of support online, both here and a thousand other places.  ;)  A look at my own build specs might help .......

I echo Rich's assessment re CCL.

When you say "keep getting 'page not found' errors" do you mean that most pages are not found or just a few on several websites?  Shoddy website maintenance is common, so don't be surprised by that, but I get very much less than 1% of pages not found. 

Ad blockers shouldn't block the whole site.  I use the Privacy Badger Add-on provided free by the Electronic Frontiers Foundation.  It's very good and will tell you precisely what it's blocking and why.  If a whole site is actually being blocked then there is probably a good reason for it - Firefox is good at that.

Hello Folks.

Sorry for the protracted absence. Personal stuff. I won't bore you with the details.

Anyway, I've ordered the motherboard and processor now so I'm commited to a self-build. I'll order the rest of the components I'll need in the next 2 -3  weeks with a view to building the computer over the Christmas bank holiday. It feels like a chore, but it's got to be better than watching the festive drivel on TV.

I'll report back as and when.

Thanks again for all the help and advice.

Just for the record, I've checked the CCL site using both Pale Moon 29 (Addblock Latitude) and Firefox 94 (Addblock Plus). I roamed all over the site with no problems, so I'd still recommend them to anyone wanting a ready-made or custom-built computer — they do components, too.
