You do some programming to solve a problem, and some to solve it in a particular language. (CC2)

The link seems broken to me.
Am I missing something obvious ?
Thanks.

Thanks. I'm off to have a good read. That site has very reasonably price kit as well so if I can get my web project to work I may be after a Mega.

My Mega hasn't turned up yet so I haven't started playing, but your words  worry me as it is an integral part of my project. I thought I'd read somewhere you need to physically swap some pins around. I think this meant bending a pin on the Ethernet shield so it didn't enter in to the corresponding socket and instead running a cable to it from another socket. Have you heard of this? Doesn't it work?

"You can't"

You can't just plug in the shield and expect it to work. The pin placing on the mega boards is different to the regular boards (specifically, I think, it's the SPI pins, but I might be wrong about that).

So you have to circumvent it by getting creative and bending pins/attaching wires. I haven't done it myself, so can't vouch for it, but I can see how it *should* work.

You could get it to work by plugging it into a breadboard and then running jumper wires to the appropriate pins. But, I think the issue is with the way the Mega runs it interrupts and I don't think the shield is compatible.
