Went to look at the chaski site, and every time I try to get there, Mozilla crashes.

Was OK yesterday..... and no other sites have any discernible problem.

Anyone else seen that sort of oddity with chaski?

Don't bother slamming that site, let's not get this closed, OK?

You still using that ancient version? ;)

I'm there often - never an issue.

Yeah so am I, it's something new as of the time of posting. I must have tried it 10 times last night, and every single time it crashed with an error. But the day before no issues.

This morning, all is perfectly fine.... obviously not a version thing, or a "site not done if Mozilla will run" deal. I am thinking that something was broken over there last night.

I just tried it with SeaMonkey no problem. Not much new there though.

Why not ask on Chaski?

I stop through there for a few minutes every night, also use Mozilla and did not have any trouble last night.

If they have adverts the problem is probably there. Some adverts tack on third party cookies and really crappy javascript tools that are more interested in tracking you than selling you a lifetime supply of viagra. It has gotten to the point where there is more money to be made selling what is known about you than selling you things.

PU-LEEESE.......

You are like the Dilbert cartoon.......

Dilbert's computer cannot access the network, but when he calls teh IT department, they request that he email them a service request *from his computer*.............

If you don't "get this" don't worry about it....... :rolleyes:

Well, that is the correct demographic for home shop machinists :p

I called AT&T to report trouble with my home line. I told them - no dial tone, nothing. I even took a spare phone (NIB) outside and plugged directly into the service box / service line. Completely dead.

First question: "Are you calling from your home phone now?"
:eek:

My first question: Don't you people have caller I.D.? :p

Uh, Jerry - your machine has Internet Explorer installed on it. :rolleyes:

If Chaski crashes with Firefox, why come over here to ask about it? Head over to Chaski with Internet Explorer and ask there -- you'll get much better information asking about Chaski compatibility with Firefox than coming over to the Home Shop Machinist forum asking about Chaski :)

What would make you think THAT?

besides, there are far more smart computer people over here than at Chaski...... Software questions over there get the "you dumb-s**t" response, as I have reason to know when their BBS was messed up.....

If you're using Windows XP maybe you've answered your own question... Internet Explorer can be removed but that can be very tricky. Internet Explorer is more than just a browser. It works as an underlying technology behind a number of internal Windows XP processes including updating, basic Windows functionality and more. So if you're using XP and removed IE....

Considering that whatever the problem was with chaski, it is gone, and everything works fine, I sincerely doubt it......

Most probably some oddity was freaking out FF/mozilla, and it kept coming up in the cache.... when the cache got too old, it got renewed, and problem was gone. I didn't flush it when the problem occurred, I was just going to pop in there to look, before I shut down for the evening.... when it went bonkers I tried it a dozen times or so, and quit.
