    What browser and version are you using, as well as any security software? I can have our coding team look into this as our site shouldn't crash your browser.

    Lots of nice stuff, but nothing that really excites me right now. Not sure why, since I usually find at least one thing I'd like to grab from them.

    Encore #19 is sold out again already?

    I'm using Explorer 8 and it takes a while for a link to open. It does eventually open though. Just seems not to do anything then Bam, it opens. Takes about a minute.
    Off to BBTS to order.

    More encore #19's will be in shortly, another very popular tape set.

    We gave up on IE a while ago, when you run two identical computers side by side with firefox or especially chrome, depending on your computer it can be radically different in terms of speed. Not just in regards to our site, but browsing in general. Some of our older computers now run chrome, others firefox.

    But in general, if anyone has problems running our site, we appreciate your letting us know and we'll work to see if we can fix them.

    Got two preordered, thinking about a third. Gotta support the line in hopes of getting the last four US tapes and the Jap. exclusives.

    I love how TFSource offers a discount when buying multiples. For someone like me that enjoys having a sealed and opened version of my bots, it is great. Thanks for the discounts guys!

    You have to remember though, most people have IE7 or IE8 installed when they buy new computers as there is no other option. I myself choose to stick with IE8 no matter the outcome. There have been no other problems 'till I hit your revised site.

    I've ordered from TFSOURCE in the past and really loved it, but I will not be switching Browsers for a $200. purchase here or a $300. purchase there.

    Already ordered the set from BBTS this morning $57.38 shipped
    They still have Encore #19 in stock if anyone's interested.

    LP

    PS: Gotta' go with who's in stock and that can handle Internet Explorer.
    How can you down MS anyway? Windows 7 just arrived and people are flocking to it.

    You know you can get Firefox for free and run both browsers at the same time, right? It's not rocket science...

    Though I did have problems with IE at work and couldn't use Firefox there...just had to wait to use my own PC.

    No, you misunderstood, our site works fine on all versions of IE, we've tested it extensively. If you are having problems, it's your combination of security software/browser settings that's preventing you from viewing our homepage properly. Over half our traffic comes from IE based browsers of a variety of versions, and that's thousands of visitors a day, who are not having any issues with our site. But as I originally mentioned if you are having problems and want our coding team to look at it, we're more than happy to help you out.

    I was stating for our own internal computers, we have dropped IE on all of them. On all of our older computers (we have 8, all from a variety of years and models), IE tends to use up the most memory of any application we run, and anyone with an older PC should consider chrome, or firefox as an alternative. They're both free, easy to download, and will speed up your multitasking significantly if you are using up a decent amount of your CPU % when running IE. Even on our computers less than a year old, the difference when loading a page in firefox or chrome vs. IE is staggering. But if you prefer MS, that's your call. Yes Windows 7 is definitely a big improvement, but just because you can launch a decent operating system doesn't mean consumers don't have a choice in web browsers. Those that are at all concerned with speed should consider the alternatives.

    i agree and spend half my life explaining to clients why i'm not going to develop specifically for their IE6 800x600 10 year old laptop, but firefox is a notorious memoryhog on old PCs, and the problem is exasperated by plugins. Opera or Chrome on old PCs, Firefox on anything that isn't rubbish ;) 

    more importantly, where is my WST shocky :(
