Menu and Navigation Notes

If you've arrived at this site via The Open Directory or an engine using OD, my now-defunct old website forwarded the URL. But my ex-host locks its URL into the address bar of the browser. You can still navigate via links, but the URL on the bar remains the same and, what's worse, ads are appended to the bottom of the screen. To rid your browser of this address and its corresponding ads, click here, or if that doesn't work, copy and paste the following URL into your address bar and re-navigate to this site:

The JS nav bar just below the top image (spinning world) on the front page will offset drop down links if you reduce your window size, causing some of the links to move off the right edge of the page. To correct this, refresh the page after reducing the size of the window.

Re the links to content on this site: many of my pages are long, and most of the links are to anchors set somewhere down on the page. So, if you don't have lightning fast download capability, you may experience a delay, which in turn might prompt you to click on the scroll bar as a nervous or impatient habit (I myself do it all the time.) DON'T DO IT! It disrupts the page jump to the anchor you were trying to get to! If you can't find the content that you thought you were being taken to, that's probably the reason why. Go back and try again, with more patience.

This site is better appreciated in MSIE. In Netscape 4, it's all screwed up, and in Netscape 6, it's just as bad, in different ways. I'd fix this, if I had time to play around and learn the code. I'll get around to it one day. Meanwhile... Click here to get MSIE. It's free. Read a brief history of my experiences with Netscape.

These problems will all go away, soon I hope, when all of the old browsers fade away and the new generation of standards-compliant ones replace them. Until then...

If you navigate to other pages using links within the right frame (i.e., links not on the navigation bar at the left) and then try to navigate back to the previous page using the Java menu on the navigation bar, it won't work. To get the Java menu to work again, use it to go to a different page first. The Java menu will not redirect itself to a page it already thinks it's on.

Links to pages external to this site open in new windows. If you're one of those sticklers who hates this practice, too bad.

Netscape users:

If the menu box on the frames naviagtion bar is too large, reduce your font size and reload the page. (Even if the box is too large, you should still be able to use it by clicking on it first.)

For best results, set your font preference to 12pt Times New Roman (N6)

N4 & N6 will not allow page jumps on this site (I don't know why), so if you're using these browsers and you don't seem to be finding material that you thought the links would take you to (such as these Netscape notes linked to from the nav bar), scan down the page for it. It's there, somewhere.

In N4, the new frame forcing method (reacting with another 'onload' command) will not allow the intro page to load. Sorry, N4 users. I can't resolve the issue. Time to upgrade to N7. That damn N4 was a nightmare from the start.
