Just noticed on a number of occasions today that I received (or appeared to receive) an empty page when attempting to access some of the threads on the forums today. Could be a problem with my browser but thought I should mention it in case anyone else saw the same behaviour which might suggest a server problem.

Now Ian don’t be so mean!!!! :-)
I take it you have not had this problem!?!
April 1, 2004 at 3:03 pm #11193AnonymousInactive
I get that pretty much every day.
A quick refresh solves the problem though.
April 1, 2004 at 3:24 pm #11195AnonymousInactive
Yep, that’s the one. A refresh sorts it out. I am using IE 6, how about you?

Omen, Kyotokid, Skyclad, myself and the N-gage challenge are under a tremendous amount of pressure to be humorous at the moment :)
I hang my head in shame ;(

See what you’ve done Aphra with your humour award? You’ve made them all think they’re comedians all of a sudden. Don’t encourage them. :p

I see said the blind man.
Such a noble endeavour with which thee hath encumbered thyself, bringing humour to the uneducated masses. Hang not thy head in shame for I do hold thee in great esteem for thy valiant efforts.
So this has nothing whatsoever to do with the day that’s in it then!?

I assume that is aimed at me Pete. Sorry ’bout that.
Having a rather strange day spent on Powerpoint, AVIs and GIFs. Losing my mind just a little bit!

Reading back through the posts it reads like I was slagging you off. Nothing of the sort, I assure you. I was merely refering to the quaint tradition of April Fools day when you try to make an ass of friend and foe alike.

No Alan, it was pointed at Omen’s head!

Why did the gamedeveloper cross the road…
(answers on a postcard?)
April 1, 2004 at 5:03 pm #11216AnonymousInactive
cos there was coffee at the other side?

Cos he could smell food and reality came washing back into his mind like a tidal wave. You are human, you must eat.
April 1, 2004 at 5:42 pm #11222AnonymousInactive
Because there was a bed on the other side? (even developers need sleep on occasion)
By the way, just how the heck did this thread become so off-topic? ;)

Tis the day of fools, Ronny, so what does that make us!? :)
Does anyone not using IE6 have the blank pages problem, and no I don’t mean when you are staring at a design doc you should have started! :)
April 2, 2004 at 10:07 am #11226AnonymousInactive
Hey everyone, sine this thread is edging back on topic – I use IE6 and have never experience this “blank page” phenomenon. If a quick refresh usually fixes the issue then it is more than likely browser related. Anyone got any symptoms other than just “blank page”? (No doctor jokes… please!!!)

Afraid not John. The link in the address line looks ok but the browser just shows an empty page. A refresh loads the page properly. I will check the next time it happens if there is anything in the source of the page.
April 3, 2004 at 10:42 am #11243AnonymousInactive
Yup, statis bat at the bottom says done, but nothing loads. Refresh and it loads. Only happens occasionally. Doesn’t bother me.

Sometimes when I visit Shacknews I get the text disappearing and everything goes blue. I mailed the admin – and you have to delete your cache…..why?
This pointless post was brought to you by the letter ‘Y’.

Big bird says……
Seriously though, here is the source of the empty page if it helps anyone to figure out what might be happening.
<!– BBClone v 0.33.5p3 OK: counter file is working –>
<!– BBClone v 0.33.5p3 OK: access file is working –>
Seems to be happening more frequently but maybe it’s like the scratch on the window, once you have noticed it you see it first every time thereafter.

Ah! There’s a counter that was installed a couple of months ago which could be causing it. It might not be 100% compatible with VBulletin.
I’ll get onto it as soon as I can, see if it fixes. Thanks Alan!
