The problem was there for two days. Yesterday I have been pulling my 
hair out. Today the problem is gone. I suspect my provider has solved 
something that was wrong (I havn't been able to contact them yet) . 
Anyway everything is back to normal now. You can all forget that I 
raised the problem (until something like this occurs again ...).
Anyone who had a peep at my url and found nothing wrong, thanks for 
looking anyway.
Greatings, Dirk Blaas
