OK--tried it for a while----it seems to be working on the PF with 'things' turn off----of course, everything thing else on other sites don't work now though--from youtube on---I don't think there's a setting on win98se to set preferences on each site
You're on Windows 98? :bugeye: Well, there's your problem. Are you able to run Flash v9?

flash version WIN 9,0,124,0

OK--evo---here--- you can give me a couple more of the " :bugeye: 's" when I tell you that I've never owned a cell phone or own a DVD player either (I guess I may deserve them)---I might as well through in I didn't own a TV for 18 years either.

Couple things I do notice:

I still get some "nexus" something or another loading or trying to load; and, I get an error message:

line: 109
char: 1
error: Object expected
code: 0
URL: https://www.physicsforums.com/index.php



if those mean anything

Yikes, you still have the nexus skin? I thought that was disabled a while ago. This is weird.

At the bottom left corner of this page, do you see an option to switch skins?

PS: When did you last clear your cache?

no---in the 'status bar' just above the task bar, it shows the loading process, any errors, which zone, etc.-----I can pick up the errors there, and watch the 'loading process'---it 'hangs' a little sometimes trying to load some 'nexus' 'something'--I can't tell, though, what exactly it is trying to load.

I've got a great little 'cleaning' program called CCleaner that cleans out everything and I do it often.


I just checked again, this time the 'error' in on line:117

it may be specifically on this sub-forum thread

on the GD the error in on line:121

on the 'main' page is where the error in on line 109

All this still may be specific to my machine though

If its loading nexus stuff then I guess you should try clearing your cache as the nexus skin was dropped months ago.

'nexus' is not on my machine---that's coming from the server


When I clean my 'cache' , I even delete the system folders that are created by windows in the cache

rew, when my computer messed up a few weeks ago, I used my old Win 98 computer until I got a replacement and had the same issues with viewing the site.

I've heard that XP and Vista are "at times" more forgiving

what do you mean?






get rid of my paisley pants and naru shirt?






I still suspect there's 'some' problem with the page properties and something on the server still trying to load some 'nexus' leftovers

Right, I even managed to become friends with Vista, although you have to be very patient and you'd have to accept to find ordinary functions at completely different places. Also aggravating is the 'docx' storage of documents, happily incompatible with anything else.

this is what I have for line 117 (error):

color: #000000;


and on line 308:

src=xxxxx.physicsforums.com/Nexus/misc/navbits_start.gif"


line 325:

src=xxxxx.physicsforums.com/Nexus/misc/navbits_finallink.gif"

line 614:

src=xxxxxx.physicsforums.com/Nexus/statusicon/post_new.gif"


line 687:

src=xxxxx.physicsforums.com/Nexus/misc/progress.gif"

line 1001:

src=xxxxx.physicsforums.com/Nexus/misc/progress.gif"


So, there are some 'nexus' things still coming in, but I don't know why the 'color' on line 117 is the problem.

I had to replace the "http://www with 'xxxx' at the begining of some of those to post this

I suspect you'll have to wait for Greg to return to answer things like that. But, as we noted above, if you just turn off java, then it resolves the problem in a short term manner.

I did try---but the rest of the internet isn't usable then (just about)--and when I enabled it all back, I had to re-install the dsl program to get back online due to java (and others) didn't like it


just another 'oh, well.....'


I hope greg sees the thread---another 'funny' --I get a red 'X' just in front of the 'edit' button once in a while and it comes up as (properties) one of those nexus gif's:

/Nexus/misc/progress.gif

He should be keeping tabs if hes posted here. If you're worried I'm sure Evo can shout at him or you can PM him, but I'm not sure what he could suggest since you're using such an old OS.

Greg's on vacation, so he's not checking in too much.

yeah, it looks like my win98 is in the minority

I'm just thinking if those things I found may be causing some problems to some other people and/or on other OS's even to a minor degree.

yeah, it is a bit misleading. the Prime skin actually uses several icons from the nexus package. This wouldn't be the problem. With the combination of the Library autolinking, chats, backups and regular traffic spikes there will be times of slowness. We are looking at new servers for a switch within 3-4 months.

The 'nexus' thing I don't think is the problem either. That was referring to something else in the thread.

The "error" is coming from something to do with the:


color: #000000;


on the page (different lines on the different pages):

line:117 in this sub-forum

on the GD the error is line:121

on the 'main' page is where the error is line 109

and they are all that "color: #000000;"

--it shows on the status bar and details come up when the 'error' icon is double clicked.
