uses a custom browser, and this creates problems for AOL users trying
to surf outside the AOL world. If you are having difficulties navigating
www.gildertech.com via AOL, try browsing with the full version of Netscape
Navigator or Internet Explorer. You can download both these browsers for
free (see below), and both will work with AOL.
Simply log on to AOL as usual, but instead of surfing with the AOL browser,
launch the standard browser. To do this, minimize AOL and look for the
"e" icon on your desktop and double click to launch the browser.
If you do not see an icon on the desktop, go to the "Start"
menu located in the lower left-hand corner of your screen, choose "Programs"
and look for Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator. Launch the browser
and go to www.gildertech.com and proceed as normal.

am a new subscriber, and am unable to login to the Subscriber Area with

am able to login to the Subscriber Area, but when I attempt to open a
PDF version of the Report, I receive a blank screen, or a screen with
only a small icon in the upper left corner. What is wrong?

a lack of ActiveX support in older browser versions.
am using version 4.0 or greater of Internet Explorer or Netscape Communicator/Navigator,
but I still receive a blank page. What is wrong?
You must be sure that your security settings allow for ActiveX to work.
For help in changing these settings, please see you browser's help files.
can I download the PDF directly to my comptuer?
To download the PDF, right click on the link (do not open the report)
and choose Save Target As (or Save Link As for Netscape users) from the
pop up menu. This will bring up a standard Save As dialog box. Pick a
location to save it to and hit the save button. This will begin the download.
When does the report come out?
It is not the nature of Gilder Technology Report to appear on a set schedule,
the reports are issued at irregular intervals. However, you will find
the "normal" frequency means that you will receive one report
in the course of each month.
Why is the reference price set at the end of
the previous month and not on publication day?
Reference Price is a company's closing stock price on the Reference Date,
the date on which the Telecosm Technology Table was generated for the
GTR in which the company was added to the Table. Since March 1999, all
"current" stock prices and new Reference Prices/Dates are based
on the closing price for the last trading day of the month prior to GTR
publication. Though the Reference Price/Date is of necessity prior to
final editorial, printing and distribution of the GTR, no notice of company
changes is given prior to publication.
How do I change my mailing address, billing option,
or GTR subscription information?
To change account info: After you log in, you will see a link that says
"Customer Service" in the upper left-hand corner of the page
(and one on the top of the page next to "Help" and "Contact
Us"). Click on Customer Service and follow the directions to change
any account information or notify us that you have not received a report.
Or call 1-800-292-4380.
