Techy Stuff

Hey, if you click the "name updates" thing down in the righthand margin (under "Posts Updated With the Name the Parents Decided On"), does your browser crash? My friend Giselle says that ever since we got above 14 updates, clicking that link makes her browser consistently crash. Test pls and report, kthanx.

Worked for me, no problem.

Christine said...

No problem for me either!
(I'm on a Mc viewing with Firefox)

Fiona Picklebottom said...

No problem on a buggy and crash-prone PC with Windows 2000 using Firefox.

aibee said...

Works for me :)

(mac, Firefox, bla bla)

Becky said...

Works for me too (Windows XP, latest version of IE...I wish I could use Firefox, though! Darn work.)

Elizabeth said...

I'm using Firefox on Ubuntu and it works for me.

Jess said...

It worked for me (in Firefox) AND it's great because I read and loved all the updates! Very good idea!

Anonymous said...

It worked fine for me too, but might I make a suggestion... is it possible to put the newest addition to that list at the top, even though it may be from a very old post. I love to go back and check when I see the number updated, but its so hard to scroll through them all to find the one that's been newly updated. Not sure if this is possible for you to do or not.
Otherwise, LOVE the blog and will be writing you soon with my own naming question!!

Giselle said...

Must just be me. Huh? It's just weird cause I'm not having any other techy issues...ah well.

And impressive reaction time, Swistle! I always envision you swimming in e-mails and did't expect a response for my boring tech problem so quick. A+...maybe you have a future in tech support ;)

Thanx!

Anonymous- I agree, that would be awesome! Blogger doesn't let me do that, though. It's one of the reasons I periodically consider switching to something like Wordpress, which I gather gives more freedom to make decisions. But Blogger is so good and so easy to use, and I'm so untechy.

Swistle said...

Giselle- Hee! I do indeed swim, but this was important! I'm hoping someone else WILL have the same problem, and will also be the techy sort who can find a workaround or a fix for it.

Works for my VISTA, Internet Expolorer computer!

Mayberry said...

Works for me, although I will say that the polls typically don't work for me in IE. They don't crash the page, but they won't record my vote. Fine in Firefox though.

Mimi said...

Nope, worked fine for me too!

f8hful_lo said...

worked for me. i agree that it is difficult to see which one has been updated, and i understand blogger doesn't let you do it. however, when you do the little update box could you add the date you updated it? that way we could see which one is most recent by scrolling down and seeing the newest date in the updated section. does that make sense? thanks swistle!

Carmen said...

Works for me (on a Mac, running Safari 3.1.2). Also fine with Firefox.

Zoo said...

Works fine for me too (Mac, Firefox, etc).

I was also going to suggest the date thing on the updated posts but I was afraid of sounding demanding. ;) Glad I'm not the only one!

Kate said...

swistle, would it be hard to make a little mini post when you update, with a link to the updated post? I agree with anon that it's a little cumbersome to scroll through all of the updated posts to try and find the most recently updated one!

Joceline said...

no problems with an old, buggy pc and internet explorer

Swistle said...

Kate- It wouldn't be hard, but I'd worry about the way it would knock the current name question out of the top slot. Hm. Will think!

Clarabella said...

no crash with my firefox, which crashes if you look at the screen wrong, so i'm guessing it must be giselle's browser/computer.

Trina said...

No problems here and I have a known trojan on this computer that we can't seem to get rid of.

Dr. Maureen said...

Works for me; Firefox 2.something on a PC.

Bethany said...

It works for me- I use Firefox on a WinXP machine :)

Arwen said...

No problems here; I'm running Camino on a Mac.

fairydogmother said...

No problem here

(Mac, using Safari b/c I was too lazy to launch Firefox. Which is some serious laziness!)

Maggie said...

No troubles for me either -- I have XP and Firefox...

Bethtastic said...

On another note...Wordpress ROCKS! I'm about as un-techy as one can be, and it's slick to use...
I haven't ever done anything on Blogger, so I don't have a comparison.

If you do ever decide to switch. Rest assured you'd be fine. :)

(Oh, and I'm not having problems, but would also love to see the updates be a bit less scrolly to figure out. Your sites are awesome Swistle. Love.)

Rusti said...

working just fine for me also...

PC @ work w/Firefox - Mac @ home w/FF
