I'm trying to read the Thrusday comic and keep getting re-directed to another site.
Has some A**-hole cracker hijacked the page for his own evil ends? I was really getting into the story!<P>------------------

This happens with some browsers (Netscape, particularly) when a linked javascript fails. Instead of shrugging it off, the browser moves to the address of the failed javascript where it shows the error message.<P>The Shadowkeen dropdown script, which is hosted on Kyokipress.com, fails because the people involved have jointly decided to take it down. <P>Solutions:<P>1. Don't use Netscape. Otherwise you will get this problem again. If you hate Internet Explorer, try Opera, Mozilla, iCab (Mac only) or Konqueror (Linux only)
2. For Katherine: take the dropdown off your homepage.
3. Also for Katherine: make sure you know about these things. Subscribe to at least one channel (egroup, other mailing list) where people can tell you these things. I know it's a bit of a drag but otherwise you will get problems like this again.<P>------------------

Another solution:<P>In Netscape, go to the Edit menu and click on Preferences. Click on Advanced. Uncheck Javascript to turn it off.<P>Of course, this is a kluge solution and any javascript dependent functions on any Web page will be broken, but it does work for a temporary fix.

Ahhh, that's what it is. Kaichi told me he was shutting down the dropdown, but, lazy as I am, I figured it could wait. <P>I'm fixing it right now....<P>okay, there. The update's in the queue.<p>[This message has been edited by Shiro (edited 05-31-2001).]
