thanks to a reminder from dee. i got out of the last fix i was in very nicely. now i am in age 233, the room with the cage and the linking books to the 5 islands. i have the red light in the powering generator glowing. when i click on any of the linking books, i get a picture of the rotating sphere on an island, the hand comes up, click on it, then it tells you to change disks. then another book comes up- it is always the book to the 233rd age again, then change back to disk 5, ect. cant seem to get out of this place-is there a trick to it? what haven't i done?
