Known Problems with this CD
This page last modified on 18 August, 2003
In spite of doing extensive testing while preparing the
"slideshow" on this CD-Rom, I've just discovered several problems/bugs
that users may fall into. Being out of spare time to record copies of the
CD to take to the Celebration in Lima, this note is the best I can do for
now. Feeback (to firstname.lastname@example.org)
from people who use this CD-Rom will let me know whether to take the trouble to
search for a cure.
The bugs I discovered today are a result of my using
my testing of the content of this CD. The bugs have not surfaced using
that browser. I have other versions of both Netscape and Microsoft
an industry standard programming language used in building Web pages that was
originated and promoted by Netscape Corporation. Microsoft support for
least two of those.
VGA Photos Page problems:
- If you click the link "VGA Photos" on the
opening menu page of this CD, you will display a list of links to photos,
with adjacent links to the associated "Notes" on some lines.
Clicking the "Notes" link will jump to the text of the
Notes. To get back to the VGA Photos page, you'll need to use the
browser's "BACK" command in this context. The result
may be a little error message box - which you should be able to ignore
safely. (Just click "OK" or "Ignore" ... to get
rid of it.)
Hopefully, if I add photos taken at the forthcoming Celebration and
Conference, I'll be able to solve this problem by making the Notes appear in
their own little pop-up windows.
If you use a Netscape browser:
- I've experienced VGA Photos Page problem #1 only with a
Netscape version 4.05 browser. It does not occur with version 4.73 (and
If you use a Microsoft Internet Explorer (MSIE)
- VGA Photos Page problem #1 occurs using MSIE version
5.00 (and presumably all earlier versions - at best).
- If you click the link "XGA Photos" on the
opening menu page, and then click the "Notes" link after the photo
page has appeared - you will crash MSIE if you then close the
Notes window using the "X" Close icon in the upper right hand
corner. There's a very simple workaround: Click one of the
next-photo icons on the left - the Notes window will be closed as a
side-effect of this action. Thereafter, it seems you can use the
"X" Close icon without crashing MSIE. This problem seems to
occur only when using the CD-Rom - not when reading off the Web.
