ox45tallboy: TwistedFark: Yeah as other people have pointed out, I.E. quirks mode actually makes the site work as the author probably intended it (maybe? although I shudder to think about that....)

The poor lady that runs the website will wake up tomorrow wondering why all these people redirected from Fark have a sudden interest in embroidery machine troubleshooting, and will load up the page to check for any errors and it will look perfectly fine to her.

HTML 3.2? And ISO-8859-1? WTF?

I have to admit, I have some issues with HTML5 because it states that a lot of tags shouldn't be closed.
eg.

<ul>
  <li>Awesome item 1
  <li>Awesome item 2
  <li>Awesome item 3
</ul>

Is technically valid. I grew up in an XHTML world (well, eventually) and believe in the "Open a tag, close it biatch!" world. Or if it's a minimized tag, then use the correct syntax...

Or better yet, the video guy setting up for a concert at Cowboys Stadium.

All of the cool points lost by that guy who did Hanson's concert video feeds were regained when he was testing out the equipment in Dallas and hooked up his XBox 360 to put HALO on the big screen.

Putting this web site on Jerry Jones' phallus extension would be rather meta.

Never touch IE. Tried it in Camino, Firefox, Seamonkey, Midori, and Safari. Didn't look unusual. Finally dragged the source into Opera and the spectacle revealed itself.

None of these are the latest, bleeding-edge versions, by the way.

2013-02-26 07:47:51 AM
It kind of looks like free-form verse:

Thread Breakage
Causes:
Improper Thread
Try re-threading the machine; make sure the thread goes through all guides.
Burrs
There may be burrs in the needle's eye, on the thread guides, needle plate or the hook. Replace the needle and try buffing the thread guides and needle plate. Buffing may alter the timing, so it's a good idea to replace a damaged hook.
Dry Hook
Because it dries out faster, the hook needs frequent lubrication. The hook assembly should be lubricated every 4-8 hours of machine running time.
Needle to small
You may have to change to a larger needle
Too much Adhesive spray
You should be using only Embroidery designed adhesive sprays, never over use them. Too much adhesive build up on the needle can cause them to drag and break threads. If this is happening you should examine the way you use your adhesive spray
Improper timing
If your machine isn't timed properly, it can cause many probems in addition to thread breaks. Such as broken needles, poor stitching or sometimes no stitching.
Old Thread
Thread can become brittle with age and long exposure to light, air and heat. You should store your thread in a cool, dark place to lengthen shelf life.
Bruised cone
A bruised cone of thread can occur if the thread falls on the floor, causing the lower winding of thread to loosen and catch as the thread spools off. You can take off the affected part of the thread or replace the cone.
Machine speed
Some of the designs increase the stress on thread. You should lower the machine speed as needed
Lint build up
A lint build up on the tension discs, needle plate or bobbin cases can cause breakage. These areas should be cleaned frequently with air or a brush.
Bent needle
This can happen after the needle hits a very hard object such as a Hoop, needle plate or the hook. If this happens you have to replace the needle and check for burrs and the timing.
Improper tensions
If the tension is too tight, it can cause pulling, puckering and thread stress. If the thread is too loose it can cause the thread to pile up and loop. You have to adjust the tensions to achieve a flat smooth look.
Using Tape for loose ends
Using tape can leave a residue and this can cause friction and thread breakage.
Holding the thread
If you hold the loose end of the thread when you start up the machine and you are pulling the thread too tight, it can cause the needle to bend or break and can also cause the thread to break.
Stitches form wrong or not at all
Causes:
Empty Bobbin
replace
Retaining finger in wrong position
loop can not form
Improper Timing
the bobbin hook won't catch the loop
Needle position is incorrect
can cause the timing to be off
Damaged hook
replace
Missed stitches
Causes:
Wrong Needle Size
in relation to the thread and this can make it difficult for loops to form
Thread is to tight or to loose
causes irregular loops to form
Timing is incorrect
can cause the bobbin hook to not catch the loop
Needle breaks
Causes:
Bent needle
replace
Dull needle
will bend and eventually break, replace
Timing wrong
damage to needle and hook and poor stitch quality
Holding thread during startup
can bend the needle and break the thread
Needle is inserted wrong
insert all the way up the needle bar shaft and needle screw is tight
Needle cuts holes in garment
Causes:
Dull needle
difficult to pierce garment causing tearing
Needle point is wrong type
wrong point can damage some fabrics, try a ballpoint
Needle to large
can stretch fabrics
Fabrics are to delicate
may have to use a topping
The design is out of register
Causes:
Garment is hooped to loosley
re-hoop but do not stretch fabric
The fabric is unstable
you may have to use a heavier backing
Garment is puckering
Causes:
Tensions to tight for a particular thread or garment
Improper hooping
Unstable fabric
Dull needles
Too many stitches in an area
These are some of the normal problems you may experience during the Embroidery Process.

I doubt it too. In Camino it loaded as the author intended. In Firefox, Seamonkey, Safari, and Chrome it suffered from the progressive embiggenation. Did not yet check it in Lynx.

Here, "color" is an attribute. Closing tags don't have attributes. So, no.

But it has nothing to do with George Wendt.

Still seeing it here in Safari. IE cleans up after FrontPage, as always; oddly, so does the Android (Gingerbread) built-in browser.

Hope it stays up in its current form long enough for my wife to see it. I saved a .webarchive of it, just in case.

Just beautiful.  Like so many others, I remember a time of no corporate sites, no advertising, $175 domain names and personal web sites about their dogs from comp. sci profs.
A time when, for the modest investment of 20 hours and a T1 line you could see all the www.

choo: Works fine in Internet Explorer actually. FrontPage rules!


I was just gonna skip this until you said that...

So, I had to see what retarded thing that IE was doing.

<tr><td><h3><font color="red"><font face="arial">Improper timing <br><width="25%" align="left"></font color><font color="0033FF"><font face="arial">If your machine isn't timed properly, it can cause many probems in addition to thread breaks. Such as broken needles, poor stitching or sometimes no stitching.</td></tr> <tr><td> ...

Obviously it's stupid that this was generated by an MS product. The whole thing is pretty funny
<width>? really?
</font color>? what?

But the deal here is that you can't nest <td> tags. (In fact the </td> tag is, by definition, optional in HTML) So the next <tr> implies the end of the <td> element, and IE is treating that as the end of all the things inside it.

Now, I'm not going to sit here for an hour and pick it apart, but see that part I copy/pasted? I can't find a matching <table> for it anywhere, so Chrome is just plain dropping those tags entirely. The <tr> and <td> tags may as well not exist, so you end up with a series of unclosed <h3> tags everywhere.

It's a fun exercise in HTML parsing.

I don't have Windows 8. I'm curious what IE10 does if you force it to "standards mode"

Ok I was wrong. IE is dropping those tags, too, and IE is nesting all the elements, too... I just think IE must be using an absolute size for H3 tags instead of making each one relative to the one before it.
