Yes, I'm on broadband and they still aint waving!


Wendy Report 17 Aug 2006 15:48

Yes they are still there. It appears to be random, but in the last couple of minutes I saw it change 6 times. It is still doing it now. I've not been on the cooking sherry! My son is standing here with me and he can see it too. My son says it is randomly decided on the GR server as to when you see it, but once you get it it loops every ten seconds until you change page. (He is an IT Consultant and I think he knows what he is talking about) Wendy

If, like me, you use FireFox as your browser, then there's not a skeleton or wave in sight!!!


Dea Report 17 Aug 2006 16:34

I feel cheated too - I am quite disappointed, is this another display of favouritism by GR I ask myself - lol


Wendy Report 17 Aug 2006 16:49

For those of you who haven't see the skeletons yet, my son has posted it on his website. Go to www(.)puseyuk(.)co(.)uk/temp/logo-UK(.)gif (Remove brackets) Wait about 10 seconds and then they will wave to you. PS It does work using Firefox. Wendy


Dea Report 17 Aug 2006 16:55

Wendy I went to that site and waited over a minute and STILL DIDN'T SEE THEM!!!!! I am running Windows XP using IE with ZoneAlarm as a firewall. Why can't I see it? It it an hallucinating drug thing and I'm not susceptible or something like that (I do like to think I'm above all that with my brain - ha ha ha ha ha!!) Snowdrops

Wendy - thank your son for posting on his website, its horrible didn't like it at all. Sue


Wendy Report 17 Aug 2006 17:04

Snowdrop, My son says that your set up shouldn't make any difference. Try again and let me know if you see them this time. Wendy


Wendy Report 17 Aug 2006 17:05

snowdrop, You can also try going to the Tools menu, Internet Options, Advanced Tab, and under the Multimedia heading, and see if 'Play animations in web pages' is ticked. It is for me, and it works for me. Regards, Dave. (wendy's son).


Dea Report 17 Aug 2006 17:09

Well explained Dave (Wendy's son), but DON'T do it Snowdrop - It is truly 'Icky' - You won't like it. Dea x

OKAY, I give in you all got me - you can all say na, na, na, na, na now. I STILL DON'T SEE IT. I waited 2 minutes this time. I am now convinced you're all playing a game with me to see how long it is before I twig you're all having me on!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


hallyally Report 17 Aug 2006 17:15

I think it isn't on mine because I'm using a Mac. Can't get the internet option thingy either though..... Any ideas? Allie x


Sylvia Report 17 Aug 2006 17:15

Well, I haven`t got it at all. Feeling quite deprived. Also Dave (Wendy`s son) if one is on AOL they very kindly dont give you a tools option on the top of page! I guess I can live without it. Sylvia.

I have been on c o and c o m I've logged out the site and back into it. I've sat and waited for minutes at a time. I've gone onto Wendy's son site twice and waited eons there. I have to face it - at the end of the day 'There are no skeletons in my closet' - boom boom!


Wendy Report 17 Aug 2006 17:17

Snowdrop, Dave wants to know Exactly What Do You See? Do you see the logo as normal or what? Wendy

Snowdrops in Bloom Report 17 Aug 2006 17:19

Wendy I see the logo as normal (ie: the figures are still and nothing moves or changes at all, ever)
