Posted by YardBoy on Mar. 25 2002,12:28 pmHaving trouble getting to < MinuteWar >
Posted by Quinn on Mar. 25 2002,12:35 pmyou mean the map or the actual main page of it?
I found that the map loaded very slowly but then scout added two options for broadband and fast cpu. I clicked on Broadband and the map loades very quickly now.
Before I would have to wait like 30 seconds before it let me in.
Posted by Gimpy on Mar. 26 2002,2:28 amYa know, I'm so fed up with this d*#^ IE 6.0. Every time I want to go to the geodashing site or the minute war site, I've got to get out of IE 6 & go there by way of Netscape or Opera. I know we've been down this road before, but I can't figure out why most other folks with IE6 have no problem & no matter what I do, errors prevent me from viewing anything on either site. Anywhere else I go on the net, IE6 is lightning fast & I have no problems. -- End of rant--
Posted by YardBoy on Mar. 26 2002,7:20 amI don't get there at all, but I get to < GeoDashing > just fine...I'm using IE5.0

The puzzling thing is why others with IE6 (including me) have no problems and you do. I'm willing to take another stab at debugging this with you, but it'll have to wait until we sort out a mess with mixed up reports caused by a Yahoo bottleneck yesterday.

What error do you get when you try to bring up < MinuteWar >?

But, if you send me the details again, I'll take another try at figuring out where the source of the trouble is.

Minimization of variables really helps with trouble shooting.
FWIW - I may be biased in my opinion... my experience with WinXP RC 1 was not a pleasant one... it didn't like my multi-boot system(Dos 6.22/Win98SE/Win2K/linux) and decided to wipe the drive... there are still issues with mulit-boot systems.
I prefer Win2KPro with Service Pack 2, IE 5.5 SP2, and Zone Alarm(set to prompt you each time IE tries to access the net).
Win2K is truly multi-tasking, works well on multi-boot systems, and is more stable than Win98SE.
I do not allow IE to check for updates, nor do I allow auto-downloading. It has been a very stable development system.
On my non-development system drive, installation of Media Player 7 caused some compatiblity problems.
