Thanks to Dropbox for the now (non) interactive exercises on this blog

As from 4th October 2016 Dropbox, in its infinite wisdom, has decided to disable embedding of htm files within a browser.
That means that all the interactive exercises linked from dropbox on this blog do not now work.
None of them.
Sorry about that.

It looks like you get a automatic htm download if you are using firefox but otherwise there is now just a black space where once there was an exercise.

Many of the exercises are downloadable as word docs but nothing here is interactive anymore.

Dropbox has given no reason for this change.

Thanks a bunch dropbox.

    efllecturer.blogspot.gr IS THE MOST INSPIRATIONAL SIGHT FOR TEACHING ENGLISH AND I WOULD CONSIDER IT 'MY TEACHING BIBLE' SHAME ON YOU DROP BOX. On behalf of all the teachers who have used this sight regularly and the INFINATE NUMBER OF ENGLISH LEARNERS it has inspired,I hope drop box will withdraw its decision. I will keep using your sight. Many Thanks

    Grrr... Dropbox. Thanks for all your hard work here. It really is inspirational, and motivates me to teach things in a new way. Cheers! (And, as I said, grrrrrr, dropbox! Pah!)

  3. Thanks for the compliments. It's a pity about dropbox and I still have no idea why, after all these years, they suddenly decided to change their policy.
