    I presume it's a reference to a high-denomination coin.

    Re: give a good piece

    I'd guess it was a typo for 'price'.

    That makes sense. I have not heard piece used in this way.

    I got a warning about visiting that site.

    Re: give a good piece

    I have deleted the URL following Mike's remark. It sounds like it might be suspicious. Any other moderator can restore it if they think it's OK.

    teechar, if you trust the site, please quote any passages from it that you find relevant.

    Re: give a good piece

    Oops!
    Thanks for the alert folks!

    Mike and Rover: I have no idea whether the site is trustworthy! I didn't get any warning about it from Google or from my anit-ivirus software. I'm curious to know what the warnings were.

    Re: give a good piece

    I got a warning from my anti-virus software that it was not safe to proceed. Would I like to go back to safety? I did.
