Watch Repair Talk Website Design

Recommended Posts

I decided to change the design of the site. The main reason was that I was tired of the huge banner at the top which was always there.

 

I hope you guys don't mind, however, if you prefer the old design you can change back as long as you are logged in. You will see a link at the bottom of the page "Change Theme" and I have made "Old Theme" available there.

While this topic is active, I might as well put in a suggestion: the .crosshatch CSS style of the current theme adds a lot to the rendering time and makes Safari on my Mac stutter when scrolling pages. If I remove the crosshatch (via the web inspector) scrolling speed becomes normal again. 

{    /* background: url('/Images/crosshatch.png'); */
    background-repeat: repeat;
    background-attachment: fixed;
}

It's probably only noticeable on slower computers / graphics cards. I see it on my old MacBook Pro with OS X 10.8 and ATI Radeon X1600 graphics but not on my OS X 10.10 machine.

Thanks Rob - I never noticed that on my computer but if it is causing problems I will remove it.

:thumbsu:  Although, I didn't notice lag. I think its better without it. Cleaner. :geek:

Hi everybody.

 

Mark, I have a problem and I don't know if it is common to others, related with this migration, or not for all. Even I logoff my seccion, when I came again to the WRT site, I was logged on. It's happened for me for the last several logoffs.

It is normal?

Thanks

Hi again. I made this but still the same . :pulling-hair-out:  I really don't know what I must do to fix this (assuming that this problem is in my PC). Yesterday night I left the site with "Sign Out", but today morning I'm back already "Signed In". I don't have problem with this but if it is a problem of the site, I suppose it will better to investigate what is wrong. Any other suggestion?

I remember to did no check any box, and only was show the box asking me if I want to remember my password. I never do this for all softwares or sites. Now, I can't see any box to check as when I open the site I am already login.

 

Cheers too

The box is checked by default so you will need to click on the box to remove the check mark. Since it doesn't show now, I will assume you will need to clear the saved passwords, cookies, history, etc in the tools menu if using explorer. Then re open the page and log in, taking care of removing the default check mark and accepting cookies afterwards since the page requires it.

 

Hope it helps,

 

Bob

I again. I did try to do all again. Clear all my cookies and clear all my temporary internen files and historic (now every site that I go with password to login, ask me to remember or not...), I saw the checked box you told and uncheck again, and even all of this, still the same. I am not worry due I am only one that use my PC, and I bring this to here only because I thought could be a problem of the site or of the server. I can live with this and save me time to make logon . :D Anyway, my sincere thanks for the help. I appreciate.

    • Ok then that settles that. Yeah I thought I saw it titled Horolovar 400 day clock repair so it stands to reason that it's probably the most informative.

      I was also looking on one of my favorite sites on the net: clockworks.com I'm not sure if you're familiar with it but it has a wonderful clock repair kit with a comprehensive e-book with a repair guide for cuckoo clocks, anniversary clocks, spring driven and weight driven clock repair. Also with that you get an oiler with oil, cleaning solution, visor, level, brass brush, hand/gear puller and a mainspring letdown key all for $69. Seems like a great deal for all that and I'm fairly certain is not all Chinese crap either.

      I need to get a staking set and anvil, a better hammer, decent screwdrivers, (also unsure as to what the best ones for clock repair are) bushings and the necessary tools to do that work, all at a smaller price point.

      I don't have the funds to shell out atm for everything I want. Also I'm only in the hobby phase for now. I am, more and more coming to truly enjoy working on clocks and watches and am considering doing this for a source of income. When you can turn a hobby into a job it's a win-win.

    • Terwillger's book is the one I had. That is the bible of anniversary clocks. 
    • I'm not familiar with Rabuska's book so had to look it up. But putting it simply Terwillger's book is published by Horolovar which is the company that also makes the replacement suspension springs and mainsprings for anniversary clocks, it is considered 'The bible' for Anniversary clocks. It is also 237 pages compared to 98 pages for Rabuska's. I'm not saying Rabuska's book isn't good as I don't know as I've not read it, but if I was only going to get one book I would get the Horolovar book as it gives setup suspension spring drawings for pretty much all anniversary clocks.
    • Thanks very much OH! I'll be sure to ask how old it is before viewing, and check what you mentioned when I see it.
    • Looks complete. You will need a motor to run it. Check the lathe bed and make sure it is smooth with no marks in it. Ask what type of work has been undertaken. how old is it? Make sure the collets are in good shape and not strained, out of shape collets are no good.  A fair price I would say.
