Windows 7: I can not load " Thinks.com"

I can not load " Thinks.com"

For years I have been successfully downloading crosswords from this site without any problems. Many weeks ago, things changed without warning and although the site appears on screen ok, none of the content will load and the following error message appears: "error reading crossword file. Check/daily-crossword/puzzles/2011-09/dc1-2011-09-01 bin is u?"
The last digit in the error message looks like a "k." but I think it is slightly different.
I have tried all sorts of things with no luck but then I am a complete novice at trouble shooting. Can anyone help please?

It appears to be a problem with the site. It uses Java, and the Java bin seems to be a problem. I got that error in Opera, IE, and Firefox.





I'd contact the site if possible.
