Time for some flurries? Ship folk have created some 10,235 snowflakes over the years and perhaps we need something distracting for this time of year. making snowflakes is easy and the custom is to put SOF in the location so each of us can find the ship's flakes.

I'm addicted. I make them year round. I'll be very happy to see this year's crop of Ship flakes. For a treat, I highly recommend you check out Churchgeek's flakes- stunning!

So we can find each other's flakes we generally put SOF in the location space.

The search function on that site is a bit flaky.
Yeah, bad pun, bu accurate. Of course, not worse than the one here, so..

Hi. I'm having major problems with the site. Basically, the page is empty. Nothing to see, nothing to do. Giving it time doesn't help. And I've tried repeatedly over the last several days.

I'm guessing that, somehow, a script isn't running, or something's blocked. I've checked my permissions. I've got both Java and Flash. I'm using Firefox browser 50.1.0.

Has anyone else run into problems?

Thanks in advance.

Some of you people's snowflakes are amazing! I just make sort of random herky-jerky motions with my mouse and am impressed how symmetrical it comes out looking, but then I search through the SOF flakes and am blown away by some of your designs!

Similar setup on MacOS 10.11.6. Check that your Flash addon is up-to-date and enabled(I have Shockwave Flash 24.0 r0, I set it to ask for activation) Javascript is needed but not Java.

Net Spinster--

Thanks for the info. [Smile] Below is what I just posted on the computer thread. (And, from what was said there, earlier, lots of people are having problems with the latest Flash.)

quote:
Re my Snowdays/Flash problem:

Many thanks for the ideas and info. I'd already done much of that, and am still tinkering. I finally got it to work in Internet Explorer--though, even there, I had to reload it a few times to get it going.

In Firefox, I can finally get as far as the instruction from Snowdays to download the newest Flash--progress, at least, because previously I'd only been able to get the flat, dull background, without pics or text. I can also get at least some of Snowdays (dot) US. That's a site that's built a frame around Snowdays.me, allowing you to adjust size and various other things to make the process easier. It's hosted by mister x, who has been giving out flaking instructions for years.

There may be some other things going on, too. I recently installed the latest Firefox, which might not be playing nicely. And my computer is having some other problems. Plus I'm having problems with Flash (I think) on a greeting card site.

I'll continue to tinker. But at least I can bring it up in IE.

Thanks again! [Smile]

I always liked Firefox but it got to the point that I had too many problems with it, so I switched to Google Chrome. Yeah, I know GC is a snoopy, bossy program, but it works for Snowdays and everything else I do.

I have a hand tremor, so my snowflakes aren't always the most delicate. But I sure do like looking at all the lovely snowflakes made by other shippies.
