White space in Firefox, text in IE.

ah sweet, I fixed it.  I hadn't opened it up at all in Dreamweaver, just Fireworks, and Dreamweaver is smarter than me and converted the tags to cross-platform scripts for me.  Sweet!

I have no idea why, but I see the list of shows on the left.  Firefox 3, OS X Leopard.

Yeah, I fixed it for Firefox.  I had made the .htm file in Fireworks, using an html slice and the <object><embed> tag to embed the textbox (with scrollbar on the left, bitches!) I made in Flash, and when I put it on the site, it worked in IE/Chrome and not Firefox, so I posted here for help.

But then 2 minutes later, I opened it up in Dreamweaver for the first time, and a dialog box came up to the effect of "hey, dumbass, that's an outdated tag, how about I convert it for you?"  Which it did, so now it works in Firefox.

Hey, Dreamweaver shows its utility!  Nice.

(Fuck me, I always forget to check for further pages in the thread.  That's what happened here.)

On another note (and not to call you out specifically, blucas, because your site looks great):  I hate hate hate flash scrollers.  Is it possible for flash to support mousewheel/gesture scrolling?  If so it seems that nobody bothers to do it.  Grabbing a scroller control and dragging it is, like, so over.

donblood, that's ridiculous!  Why make something easy to use when you could instead break out THE MOTHERFUCKING FLASH?  Haven't you ever been to a website for a restaurant or an artist?

blucas, don't listen to don; add a three-minute-long unskippable intro to the site instead.

Yeah, I actually agree with you.  The gf did all the actually layout/design in Illustrator and Photoshop, I was just in charge of making it a website.  Trust me, I would've MUCH rather had something simpler.  I spent forever trying to talk her out of the left-hand-side scrollbar.  The scroll bit doesn't matter too much, though, since the new shows will always be at the top.  There's not much of a reason for anyone other than her to scroll down.

My iMac G5 won't boot up past the grey screen.  On Sunday night system update wanted to install a security upgrade.  It failed.  At the time I didn't think anything of it so I shut down as usual but I think the update broke it.  It hasn't got past the grey screen since then.

So far I've tried booting in safe mode, opening up the back - first 3 out of the 4 diagnostic lights come on, anything significant in that? - and doing the fsck thing in single user mode.  I put in the Tiger disc to try to do an Archive install but it won't take, stays rockin' the circle on the grey.  Is there anything else I should try before I take it to a shop/throw it against a wall?

nevermind...it's magically working again.

so gmail worked fine two days ago, but since yesterday the standard version will get to the part where it shows the email address and the loading bar, but get stuck at about 99%.  the basic html version works, but not the version with chat and pretty colors and all that.

it's a new laptop, but i don't think i've installed any updates or anything during the time it stopped working.  i'm using firefox 3 on vista.

In that case... my laptop is old. So old that the letters are wearing off the keys. Can I replace them or is it a total pain in the arse? (it's a 2004 iBook). Apart form the key problem is still pretty sweet - we gave it a bigger brain a while ago, and that seemed to help, but I need newr OS than 10.3.9...

i don't know about replacing the keyboard so these are alternative suggestions should replacing the keyboard prove expensive/difficult:

1. if the keys are still fully functional and it's just that you can't see the characters imprinted upon them, you should be able to get a sticker set for a couple of whatever units of currency you use. i'd recommend that over buying new parts for an old laptop. the keys might feel different depending on the stickers but shouldn't get in the way.

2. my laptop's keys started dying last year and i bought an external USB keyboard for when i need to do much typing (better for posture anyway), so that's also an option.

Or stop looking at the keyboard.  Which keys are rubbing off?

iBook keyboards are really easy to replace if you can dig one up! Pop out the tabs across the top of the keyboard, pull it out. Undo some screws underneath the board, and unplug it. Then just plug in the new one, put the screws in, and lay it back down.

My primary computer is a 2004 Powerbook still running 10.3.9.. It hurts.

easy one here probably, but googling isn't helping me: ever since Firefox updated me to the latest version, my page up/down & home/end keys don't work. What I did come up with on Google points to caret navigation, but tweaking that through F7 doesn't help.

any suggestions?

not to nag, whine, or imply some sense of entitlement to LPTJ tech support, but does anyone have any suggestions for my above query? I'd definitely appreciate it, because these damn keys work about a third of the time but otherwise refuse, and it's annoying the hell out of me--they're not working in Word either now. I never realized how much I value my PgDn and End keys until they dumped me.

Hard to say without knowing every single other thing you've done in the time frame.  It's probably not Firefox, though.  The fact that they work sometimes points to mechanical/electrical failure of the keys themselves.
