Site not displaying properly


Recommended Posts

Any pointers appreciated, it’s on my work laptop so I’m thinking it’s something the admin monkeys have done. The forum worked perfectly not long ago but now this, see picture. And it’s only this forum that it’s happening to. 

im on google chrome and windows 7 if that helps

I think that IT departments have the ability to stop webpages downloading the graphics portion of webpages. I have had the above happen on my home iMac, but reloading the page generally fixes it. Different circumstance obviously, but I have had it happen.

As far as I know, when you get this, all the links work correctly, you just don't get the graphics portion. Do you get the same thing happening if you now click on one of the links on the page?

I’ll give you a heads up this evening with pictures of what I see, basically it’s like the picture before but with huge full screen single letters between each subject, I can’t click on a link to see the contents of each subject

Have you tried the above said clearing of cache and cookies, as well another browser?

No nothing uninstalled, the works laptop is pretty strict on all things like that, I can’t even have my own desk top background installed anymore as they stopped that with everyone.

I have been informed that there is a new google Update coming soon, so I’ll wait for that to be patched in and see what happens then.

If you are indeed allowed to use your work laptop to view the forum, I would suggest that for some reason your IT department has flagged the page that you are accessing that does not display correctly. Subsequent pages display correctly as their address differs from the address of the incorrectly displayed page.

Might be the result of some automatic security software.

Ring your favourite IT guy at work. Best of luck.

That is technically impossible. WRT (just like any other serious website of the world)  uses HTTPS with which all the content exchanged, including which page is being accessed, is encrypted end to end. The clear text HTTP protocol is disabled. That means that anyone that is even able to intercept the communication, (lke an IT dept) can know that one is accessing it, can block it or even redirect the access, but cannot see or modify what is being transmitted in ether direction.

I’m open to all suggestions so keep them coming please. I’m going through all settings etc trying to accept cookies etc amongst other odds and sods to try and make it work in the laptop. 
Im still waiting for the update to filter through and when it does that might make a difference but I’m not holding my breath to be honest

Well I popped into work today to compare settings of laptop to desktop whilst on google chrome, so I set my laptop up next to a desk top logged on and headed to the forum.

Well here’s a surprise, both the laptop and the desktop displayed the forum incorrectly!!
So now I’m stumped, something must be wrong with the internet settings on every desktop/laptop that are on the works system.

 Easy isn’t it, to be fair I don’t actually spend a lot of time browsing as I’m more out the office than in, but a little down time Is nice. 
But it’s strange how it’s just this site that doesn’t display, even had the google chrome update done yesterday and still no difference

    • Hi Fernando, read carefully what @eccentric59 wrote, it is the key to You problem. Lubricate the cannon pinion. Take care to understand what is it's function. When You set time, the train doesn't move, but only the cannon pinion moves. Put hte lever back in it's place, it has nothing to do with time setting
    • Hi fernando. Let us know how you get on.
    • OK, in You case You will assemble the movement with the line attached to the barrel and fusee and will  wind the line  entirely on the barrel after that. It is important when replacing the line to know the correct lenght of the line. The rule is that when line wound on the fudsee entirely, about 1/4 turn still to remain on the barrel. Yes, no tension. The ratchet is not placed yet, the spring in the barrel is complitelly unwound. At the end of the step the fusee is empty and the line is attached to it and strained perpendiculary to it, not on tangent. The escape wheel. Use whatever that will not damage anything. Yes, this is typing mistake, sorry. The word 'pendulum' here is not correct, You should use 'anchor' and yes, it is removed from the movement at this point, according my instruction 1 (Ihave used the word 'lever' there):   Ok, let sey the barrel arbour makes 6 full turns when winding the spring in the barrel from unwound to fully wound state of the spring. Let sey that the barrel makes 4.5 full turns when winding the clock from fully unwound (the line is on the barrel) to fully wound (the line is on the fusee) state. This means that You should not wind the spring in the barlel when adjusting the initial tension to more than 1.5 turns of the arbour of the barrel.  If You make 2 full turns, then when winding the clock, the barrel will be able to turn to only 4 turns, so the limiting device will not limit the rotation of the fusee arbour and You will be able to force the line much more than when the limiting device acts, also the power reserve will be less. Hope this is clear now... Yes, but again - not the pendulum, but the anchour.   About the loosing time... In this kind of escapement, the frequency pritty much depends on the torque. The higher torque - the highrer frequency. This is because this escapement forces the pendulum to oscillate significantly faster than it's own resonant fequency. The frequency depends on the 'depth' of the escapement too - the deeper escapement is, the lower the frequency, and the higher amplitude of pendulum oscillations. The heavier the pendulum is, the harder to the movement (the escapement torque) to force the pendulum to oscillate faster than it's own frequency. And in the end, the own pendulum frequency depends only on the pendulum lenght and a little on the suspension spring 'strenght' This are all the relations between all the factors. You can try to use the old spring (if it is not broken) and see if the clock will work faster with it. Yes, the old springs of fusee clocks sometimes give bigger torque than modern ones, no matter if they seem to be 'set' You can shorten the pendulum to achieve correct frequency. If the torque is reduced, but enough for the movement to work reliably,  then reduced torque will only lead to lessen the wear. The torque in fusee movements is more or less constant all the time, this is the function of the fusee. You can use the Clock Tuner  free app for android to adjust faster the clock rate. You will need to know the BPH of the movement, so count the teeth of the wheels and pinions and calculate the BPH
    • Hi! My bad. I meant to say that when the pallet fork is installed I cant move the wheels "using the crown in the setting position" Really in truly my number 3 was redundant and badly written (trying to explain myself went all wrong). I dismantling partially the watch (calendar, remontoir, Balance and Pallet fork). I think I would need to go that way...  Thanks for your comments...    
    • this is what happens if you don't fully do all of your research. I found the safe answer I found your exact caliber we got a mainspring number we got a price at a decent price for the original spring verified that the spring number at least on bestfit agrees with what we have so it was safe yes I did look in the GR catalog I had seen that 200 watch has a spring similar to what you perceive it should be. But to be honest I never looked at the 200 watch to see what its mainspring was. then the other amusement I went back to the bestfit online because if the 200 have the same spring I were to see that when I snipped out the image up above. Turns out they don't even show a 200 listing at all.
