Any technical communicants?

Dearly beloved...

His Grace is having a technical problem with his banner.

As many of you noticed last week, he has become so popular that he exceeded his bandwidth limit.

Accordingly, he switched to a limitless host, which hitherto has been working just fine.

Now, however, the demons have returned. The image is still correctly uploaded, but on IE and Forefox it does not display. Some readers and communicants may get the message 'Stack overflow at line:0', whatever that means.

Is there an awfully kind communicant who may care to enlighten His Grace's ashes because he is getting a little urinated afar by matters technical.

Bless you.

So it is a problem with His Grace's PC?

This urinates him even further afar.

I think its a Javascript error. Will try and find out exactly what and post a solution in non-gobbledegook terms if I can.

The issue is with the location of the banner image.

You neeed to relocate the file:

http://imgboot.com/images/Cranmer/cranmerbannerround.jpg

to another location. Currently the server is no allowing the page to show this image due to restictive server pemisions.

I'm on Firefox and see the banner fine too, Your Grace. Try clearing your cache and see if that works. Or what Peter said.

Good luck. :0)

Mrs Gnostic,

His Grace is loath to clear his cache because all his passwords and automated links vanish.


Mr Peter,

The location?

How can there be a problem with the location if some readers and communicants can see it? He has checked his new IMG account, and there are no restrictive permissions.

Mr Orwellian Prophet,

His Grace is most appeciative of your efforts.

He is, however, urinated way beyond the outer perimeter.

The banner is still on your old server (imgboot.com/images/Cranmer/cranmerbannerround.jpg)

Move it to your new one.
Its nothing to do with what browser you use

28 July 2009 at 20:04  
Anonymous Peter said...

Imageboot is not allowing you to view the image from that location. It's returning the error code 403 which means 'no permission to access'. I suspect those seeing the header are seeing the Cached version from their browser or more likely via a proxy Cache as used by many ISP's.

Trust me - you need to relocate that image!

Humph.

Can any blessed communicants recommend a congenial, reliable, unlimited-bandwidth hosting site?

28 July 2009 at 20:35  
Blogger NameHere said...

You should stay with your original host, then set up an account with SimpleCDN.com. Set-up a mirror bucket, it will allow you to mirror any files on your original host there. People will load your banner from there, and they will only request it from your limited-host every week (if you set it up correctly).

I'm sure the Bible says something about things being too good to be true, well I suspect they were referring to website hosts with no limits ... avoid at all costs.

Anonymous Orwellian Prophet said...

The banners are disappearing as they drop out of cache memory.

Not sure Your Grace but there are possibly two problems.
Your Banner is not loading probably due to an issue at imgboot.com but the stack overflow message only appears on screen after failure to load your little cluster map.
1 item remaining (downloading picture) http://www.meetomatic.com/images/clustrmaps-back-soon.jpg

I do not have a solution to the latter but offer this suggestion. Stack overflow is unlikely to do with images but it could be to do with code that handles the images (eg a preloader)

It would be helpful if others could confirm that the little cluster map is not appearing when they view the web page.

I do hope I am not generating more heat than light.

I use BizHat for my blog images. Its fine for this, but it has a lot of adds when you send people there to view images, but for blog purposes this is not an issue. Dont know if it has any bandwidth though. One way to find out is to give it a blast.

This copuld sound a tad patronising, but with regards to deleting your cache, I can recommend a user friendly programme that washes out crap from your computer, and it has setting that are very basic to navigate that allow you to leave your passwords in place. Very simple to use and totally free of any spam or viruses. I have used it for years.

All His Grace deleted was the image link to the previous hosting company.

He dispensed with all the other gubbins years ago, and the banner has always been perfectly visible.

He wishes he had never started this, and is inclined to return to the ether.

Currently, what I am seeing is the CSS code for inserting the banner, rather than the banner itself. If the following lines of code look familiar to you from something you've been doing recently:

find them again and surround them with the following tags:

Please don't follow the advice of Mr Anonymous. The problem is not with your computer, and returning to a restore point on it will not help in the slightest.

You need to find a local copy of the full banner in all its glory. Your web browser should be able to view images for you, if you don't have a more specialised tool, so you can see what size each file you have is.

Once you've found it, go to the upload interface of bizhat.com and upload that file in place of the current one.

Also, your HTML has a missing right angle bracket at the end of the "img" tag.

The angle bracket is this one: ">".
Change:

I don't know why the image hosting service would have shrunk your banner. That seems very strange. Perhaps it's some sort of thumbnail function. Does it give you back only one URL to use for the image? Or are there multiple?

Religion is there to fill the gaps when knowledge runs out. With more knowledge we can understand God better. But God's messengers can only explain God in the terms of the knowledge of the place and time that they live in.

However, the bye-laws of the place and time of messengers tend to get mixed up with the basic message, and churches add rituals to add to their power on earth. Messengers like Jesus, Paul, Mohammed, St Francis, Luther, Fox and others came to strip away the trimmings and to update the message.

It is now clear that God isn't a temperamental beardie sitting on a cloud throwing thunderbolts, but something much bigger than the universe, and we all have roles to play in it. For churches to stick to the knowledge held in places far away and long ago and to accept nothing new is self-defeating. Evolution is perfectly compatible with religion, but on the other hand, Atheism is just another religious theory.

Now that religions are no longer tied to particular localities, now is the time for religious leaders to get together , ascertain the beliefs that they have in common, and to throw away the rituals and rules from far away and long ago that hold them apart. This may reduce the power on earth of leaders of individual churches, but the fact that they now agreed on basic principles and weren't squabbling about trivial details would make religion a lot more believable.

Sorry to be off topic.

I thought this was so good, I shamelessly cut and pasted it off of CIF.

May I add my own 2p's worth by stating that this particular way of looking at things is a MASONIC idea.

It is in reality the way in which high religion and our ruling class elites understand our common reality. They just don't bother telling US the profane.

Give me the grace, Good Lord

To set the world at naught. To set the mind firmly on You and not to hang upon the words of men's mouths.

To be content to be solitary. Not to long for worldly pleasures. Little by little utterly to cast off the world and rid my mind of all its business.

Not to long to hear of earthly things, but that the hearing of worldly fancies may be displeasing to me.

Gladly to be thinking of God, piteously to call for His help. To lean into the comfort of God. Busily to labor to love Him.

To know my own vileness and wretchedness. To humble myself under the mighty hand of God. To bewail my sins and, for the purging of them, patiently to suffer adversity.

Gladly to bear my purgatory here. To be joyful in tribulations. To walk the narrow way that leads to life.

To have the last thing in remembrance. To have ever before my eyes my death that is ever at hand. To make death no stranger to me. To foresee and consider the everlasting fire of Hell. To pray for pardon before the judge comes.

To have continually in mind the passion that Christ suffered for me. For His benefits unceasingly to give Him thanks.

To buy the time again that I have lost. To abstain from vain conversations. To shun foolish mirth and gladness. To cut off unnecessary recreations.

Of worldly substance, friends, liberty, life and all, to set the loss at naught, for the winning of Christ.

To think my worst enemies my best friends, for the brethren of Joseph could never have done him so much good with their love and favor as they did him with their malice and hatred.

These minds are more to be desired of every man than all the treasures of all the princes and kings, Christian and heathen, were it gathered and laid together all in one heap.

It is restored, but the image is now comming from blogspot again, so presumably this won't help with bandwidth issues ?

Of course, most browsers will cache the image after downloading once, so that should not be too big a drain on resources.
