Hmm, have you given your files permissions so everyone can read them?

I occasionally have a problem when I create new directories that just 
have Read/Write/eXecute permissions for the user rather than groups and 
everyone and it won't let me display them.  A *chmod -r 777 
directory-name* usually fixes this (I know, not a great security measure 
but I'm too busy to sort them out at the moment).
