Dear Yapa, Thank you for the reply.

Last year I entered a telecenter in the database that I helped to set up in hinterland of East Kalimantan for the Lundaya tribe.
There are thousands of telecenter already there, but when I would like to search (using country or telecenter name) to check if the telecenter that i have entered already there... cant find. The Telecenter is 'Long Bawan Wardes' in Indonesia. By the way my brouwser is Firefox version 11.0 I dont think there is problem with the browser.
