Lor M. Ipsum: I'm looking at the page source, and I can't find it...what the devil is causing this?


It's the unclosed H3 tag used throughout.  There is so much wrong with this page that I don't know where to begin, but here's a start.

Don't use tables for non-tabular data.
Don't use header tags (H#) for non headers.  Conversely, use the damn header tag when it is a header.
Don't individually set the font.
Don't individually set the alignment.
And most of all, NEVER USE FARKING FRONTPAGE UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE.

nilla: the header tag isn't optional on closing, which was obviously left out here.
the font size uses em's, which are a relative sizing to the element's parent.
each time a new h3 was opened, the font is increased by 1.17x.
hard to imagine ms front page even allowed this to happen.

who still uses front page?


Oddly enough, the site renders fine in Internet Explorer 9. I happened to be looking at fark on my sister's PC and had to go back to mine to see what it looked like on Firefox, since I didn't see anything weird.

I guess IE was designed with poor coding from FrontPage in mind, which would make sense.

I do truly miss the days when pages were hand-coded, content was static, ads meant you had hit it big (or had lots of gullible investors) and browsers just browsed.  And geocities was fun (albeit broken as shiat).
I get sad that the internet of old is but a memory, and in thirty years, few people will remember it, and its already completely out of reach.
At least with an old car, you can get that nostalgic feeling if you have one.  That is gone forever with the web.
And then occasionally you come across one of these pages.

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.
