There were not two example "Results" pages? Hmmm... when I look at the active page I see them ...

Well, I see that I have some additions I need to make ... sigh ... ah, well, if I could not take a joke I should never have started!

Um, John ...

What is it about the images?

Paul, I'm not seeing anything

Paul, I'm not seeing anything inside the "image_right" div tag at all, not even the text. I'm using IE blocking popups but nothing else.

Let me try ... I use FireFox so, I may have blown one of the rules for IE ... let me look at it ... hmmm ... I see ... you do see the text don't you?

I see only text in your

I see only text in your images, Paul. Example as here, it just says A depiction of the Notification Area on the Taskbar for Microsoft Windows® as it is displayed on the screen.

I guess I'll have to wait for the pictures to be updated. ;)

The FAQ is a special case :( ...

To do images "right" there (with this version of phpMyFAQ) means I have to maintain 2 copies of all images and work with a real, um, difficult tool to get the images in there.

So, I opted, hoping the next version would be out faster than it looks like ... so, there are a LOT of things like image links and inserted images that are broken.

My reasoning is that the search capabilities, and the ability to submit new questions and comment on existing ones by far outweighs the drawbacks.

At the moment, the site as a whole is WAY past what I hoped to be able to do with, now, interactive FAQ, improved control on basic content, full site searching (which really seems to work for ME, if no one else... I have to use it sometimes to find stuff now that the content has "exploded" as it has ...

Anyway, do mention the problems to me in the forums, though I tend to only look in the Cruncher's Corners, and historically, only in SETI@Home ... though I am starting to migrate to Einstein@Home as I like it here better (for the moment) and this project is more in line with my interests ...

Anyway, I think I have the IE problem fixed with images (at least it works with *MY* PC version of IE ... IE for the Mac still has problems but that is a dead end tool so I am not going to sweat it ...

URP!

I lied ... different problem all together ... well ... THAT one works ... but lord knows how many others are "broken" ... sigh ...

And I am STILL behind on the planned changes ...

Paul, I was just pointing, nothing more (or less). We know you do your best and bar making it a wikipedia, I doubt there's a better page around with a more comprehensive FAQ about everything. Yet since I know what the pictures should look like, you won't hear me complain. If anything, us die-hards should offer you space for a mirror. (If I had space, etc. etc.)

Jord,

A surprise to find in my late adult life that I am autistic ... so, without much of a "people-sense" as autism's central, ahem, "gift", I rarely notice even when people try to insult me. :)

And I know you know, but I do need the "eyes" on it and that is why I pray all the time for people to point out the ommissions, mistakes, errors, wrong material, etc. so I can fix it.

And just for the heck of it, I added *MY* link to the Wiki ... I don't know how I could make my stuff better ... the problem with Wiki, is that with everone able to access the content, well, the content can become, um, suspect.

My personal take is that a mediated system such as mine, mistakes can be corrected with feedback, new material added, etc. but with some assurance that we are not just adding rumors and urban myths ...

The good news is that for the last two days I have been able to get someting done at all, which beats the last two weeks all the heck ...
