Thread: Script Errors?

    Unhappy Script Errors?

    Hi. Has anyone else experienced Internet Exployer Script Errors while using this site? I'm running IE8 and get Script Errors on the New Members thread. Any solutions out there? Thanks.

  3. Download Firefox. It's free and more secure than IE. Make sure you select the 'copy all my favorites and history and stuff from IE' when you install it. You'll still have IE if you need it :)

    Go a step further and clean Microsoft from your computer completely. Ubuntu / Linux is great and free.

    You probably have script debugging enabled. Go to TOOLS/INTERNET OPTIONS/ADVANCED/ and select Disable script debugging. IE8 will drive you crazy with script errors if it's turned on. I think every site on the net will cause IE8 to show script errors!

    Thanks all.

    Dr. Dave, I may try Firefox.

    Wolfhunter, I'm afraid I may be too old a dog to teach new tricks. Linix I know of, but have never heard of Ubuntu. And I don't want to learn a new system from scratch.

    And unfortunately Red Hat, "Disable Script Debugging " is selected.

    I agree with this statement. That or Google Chrome.

  8. Austin, that's just the Google chip in your brain making you say that. Wait, I love Google. Google forever!

    Larrys, Linux is a free operating system, like Windows, except it's free. Just as Windows comes in different versions, XP Home, XP Professional, Vista Home Premium, Vista Ultimate, Windows 7 etc, Linux also comes in different versions.

    In Linux, the versions are called flavors. Ubuntu is one of the flavors. In my opinion, the current best one. All my clients, even of they have only one server, have an Ubuntu server. Dell also now offers new computers with Ubuntu. All your updates and software are free. Check out this screenshot and you'll see it looks much like Windows: File:Ubuntu 9.10.png - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Anyway, back to your script error issue, I'll stick with just download Firefox. Here's a review of the differences: Firefox 3.5 vs. Internet Explorer 8: Which is Safer? - www.esecurityplanet.com

    Good Luck!

    Dr. Dave, Thanks for a clearer explanation than I could give.

    Larry, Hope your script errors fade into history soon.

    Larry,
    Ubuntu is one of the more popular flavors (distribution or distro) of Linux. You don't want to learn a new system from scratch you say. So here is what you do. Ubuntu is available at Ubuntu Home Page | Ubuntu. They are about to release their latest Long Term Support version which is supported for 3 years with updates that does not change the appearance or functionality of your OS for 3 years for Desktops (Updating to the next newer version after that is easy as clicking a couple buttons). Then when you do update, it still works and behaves the same but with some new features. Not sure if you are going to like it or not, well, here is where it gets really fun. What you download from their site is what is known as a LiveCD. With the LiveCD you have the full basic install of the operating system all on one CD. Put it in your CD Drive and reboot your computer. It loads up and you can try it out. If you decide you want to install they provide an Icon on the desktop. (And by the way, if your Windows ever dies unexpectedly after a patch like many did recently, you can use the LiveCD to get to your files on your Windows partition aka Hard Drive, and maybe even fix your Windows, VERY handy). Also, you can install it as an application on Windows. This feature is called WUBI. You pop the CD in the drive while you are in windows, and install it just like an application. Don't like it, well just go to add remove programs under Windows and remove it.

    It is free, it is Open Source, it has one of the best communities online to support you. If you want, like Microsoft, you can purchase support from the parent company Canonical, but I would be surprised if you need that. It supports more hardware than the current releases of Windows Operating Systems. It is naturally virus resistant and malware resistant (meaning you don't need to run antivirus or A/V software, in fact I am not aware of any A/V software for the various Linux distributions except those that scan files for Windows viruses so you don't allow your friends running Windows to be infected, kind of a out of politeness thing...) Not saying it can't get a virus or malware, but the security model does not lend itself very well to them doing much on your system, and the percieved lack of market penetration of Linux means the malware writers will go for the low hanging fruit and with m$ (Microsoft) showing the most market penetration, well, it is a bigger target.

    Other than Firefox for a browser you can also try out Google's Chromium browser. Though at the moment I recommend Firefox until Chrome supports NoScript or some other plugin like it. Which, though you will cuss it from time to time, I recommend with Firefox, you get the NoScript plugin.
