Thanks Bob.  2000 domain.  Looks clean to me.  Whitelisting.

"What it is

Multiply is a web site that makes it easy to share photos, blogs,
videos, music, and other kinds of digital content with your
friends and family.
How it works

Just add your contacts and they'll add their contacts, and so on.
Multiply keeps track of who knows whom in your social network,
and this allows us to automatically notify these people when you
add new stuff to your home page.

Why it's better

Each time you add something, we create a thread on your own
personal message board and give access to the people you choose.
With Multiply you get a built-in audience of people ready to give
you feedback and turn your content into lively discussions.
You've never been able to simultaneously communicate with
everyone in your life in this way -- and Multiply makes it easy!"
