Hey guys, I have had some technical difficulties with my website. Can any of you guys go over there and see if it functions? It almost always looks right to me, on the computer I made it. It does not always look right on other computers.

What is it supposed to look like? Well, typically if the craftsman style font is missing, it defaults to a standard font and the spacing on the headings will be whacked. Usually pages won’t come up and the graphics (line with diamonds) get messed up in a manner that is fairly obvious.

Todd,

I looked at your web site and the links at the top of the page for your gallery and such are in normal type but your name and the diamonds below look ok and in the craftsman style. I can get to the links but when you try to pan down the page it is really jerky. I looked at it with both Netscape and Internet Explorer.

Thanks. I wasn’t trying to trick you guys into visiting the site, I have been plagued with corruption issues. I am running on Mac too. I am working in Ohio and I have had great support from the Apple store. I bought my computer from an “authorized” Apple dealer in Billings and they increased the RAM with some cheap off brand chips (unknown to me). It turns out the chips have been creating a lot of problems and been corrupting the software. Not only were they non-Apple parts, but they used a really big chip with a really small chip and apparently they are supposed to be balanced.

The folks at Apple have really taken care of me though and if this replacement does not fix the issues they said that I would get a new computer.

Thanks Max, the links at the top of the page do have only a standard type. The headings of the page have a line with diamonds under them and that is where the craftsman style font is.

Todd -

Your site looks great to me on a Mac with Safari – Firefox – IE.

It looks like you are using iWeb. As far as I know you can not change the font style of the navigation menu.

Best Regards,
David

Thanks Dave, I am using iWeb and I think you are right. Because iWeb is in the computer and not on the internet like Go Daddy, it suffered the corruption issues I explained.

Yep
Problems.
My Dell laptop completely hung as soon as I reached your site. Nothing worked. Had to reboot.

My browser is Internet Explorer. I’ve looked at it before, .... couple months ago. Fine then.

Dang, I just don’t think I can figure it all out on my end. Maybe it’s just going to have some compatibility issues being that it is from a Mac?

Todd, I just checked the site and found no problem. You do some incredible work and the scenery you have all around you must be very inspiring – except in the winter :-)).

Looks fine with IE, Firefox and Opera.

Looks good through Firefox here…

Also, I was so impressed with myself that I remembered the “secret way” into the shop, came back out to go to the next link… which was the “not so secret way” into the shop!

Again, looks good, and everything seemed to function a-okay!
