    Re: Hanging out while I wait for Bean Bay

    I didnt hang around too long...

    Got several OLE debug messages and couldnt access my cart... to add, confirm or anything :(

    So once I could secure the limu (which was the main purchase) I quit before I lost it into the big "bits bucket" in the sky....

    Well theres always the Jan/Feb BeanBay ;)

    Yep, so did I.

    I just kept trying and eventually got into my cart..... tried several times before I could pay (getting the script error every time !!) - so paid and got out!!!

    Re: Hanging out while I wait for Bean Bay

    I got my tea !! Boy did it go fast, not as fast as some of those beans though. I got some error messages too but I kept hitting the back button and retrying like someone else said.

    We drink lots of tea over summer (iced tea etc) so 1 kg of tea will come in handy and I can give some to tea appreciating freinds for christmas.

    I did the same lucinda - back button was my friend today! I did find though that Firefox let me down totally - IE was getting the results with the bean bay, something I will note for future reference!

    Yeah, I use Firefox 2, as well. So you think its a Firefox thing?

    Re: Hanging out while I wait for Bean Bay

    I wouldnt like to suggest that, but when it was struggling I opened IE and tried the same links with each - IE was getting through, slowly and with that error message occaisionally, but more reliably than Firefox.

    But was it down to the fact that it was IE or was it luck? No idea!

    Re: Hanging out while I wait for Bean Bay

    I was using (well atempting to use) IE - normally its Firefox but my unix partition is broken :(......

    There were a huge number of script errors getting to the client side - I would have thought these would be trapped and return an error to the client app rather than a page of debug code...

    Twas interesting - but more interested in getting the beans like all the other pyranha.....

    Poor server.... must be in bad shape!!

    Re: Hanging out while I wait for Bean Bay

    I doubt Firefox could have been any worse than IE was for me....

    I probably got the error message at least 20 to 30 times before each successful query.......

    Was almost going to give up totally..... then suddenly I just managed to complete the transaction.....

    So Id say its more about luck than browser.

    The poll started at the cats feeding time, I am sure the wee beasties wear watches because they were letting me know in no uncertain terms that it was their dinner time ;D

    Sadie has a Demon claw that she just loves to put in that little space behind your knee - you know - that soft delicate bit - if you are not fast enough. [smiley=shocked.gif]

    They are all fed and happy now.

    So now I have to make OG an Iced coffee and his dinner ::)

    I use Safari on my iMac and that does well. I got about 6 of those errors and just managed to get through, I think by luck too.
