AOL Viewing problems Feb 1, 2009

Click here: AOL graphics and browser problems information ~ Web Page Help PROBLEM FINALLY SOLVED !!!! I went to my browser settings & filled in the circle for Never Compress Graphics & I was able to finally view photos I could not see before!!! This might help everyone. I saw your cat on Archives for Jan 27th & all photos including the cardinal which was the only one I could see before. On Feb. 1st Archives I finally could see the sparrows bathing & everything below the*********!!!!

I'll let you know if anything else develops because I changed the browser setting with your website or others.

HI LINCOLN,

IT IS TUESDAY FEB 03, 2009 - 1:01P --- THE PROBLEM IS BACK AT AOL. UNABLE TO DISPLAY IMAGES.

NO PROPBLEM ON YAHOO AND OTHERS. AOL DOESN'T SEEM TO CARE AND THE PERSON I SPOKE TO REFUSED TO GIVE "HER?" NAME. STRANGE VOICE. COULDN'T TELL MALE OR FEMALE.

THANKS FOR BEING THERE...

REGARDS,

GENE F.

Lincoln,


I was able to get the first four pictures yesterday. Today I get nothing except the text. I really miss seeing your beautiful pictures. I also use AOL.

I don't know why you can't stop watching them either.


Maybe it's the same reason I can't stop visiting your website to enjoy your fabulous photos and wish I were there watching them in person.


You are an artist!


Thank you for not being able to stop watching them.

I will miss seeing all of your wonderful shots, but understand that speed in uploading is important.


Thanks for the memories.

Sorry Lincoln, e-mailed you yesterday about viewing your photos, still no better today on AOL. No problem on Mozilla Firefox though. Hope you can get this sorted soon am having withdrawal symptoms!!!! From one of your UK fans.

Lincoln.

NOTHING at all today!! Only text visible. New way is NOT working for me.

Rose

*****************************************************


I clicked on your "viewing problems" and saw that one picture.

All others are not coming thru.

I left feedback for AOL as to why can't I view your site?

Thankfully I still can view at work.

Lincoln,

I enjoy your pictures very much. I have made many visits to Central Park while in NYC and have followed the stories about Pale Male. So I was concerned when some of the photographs were not displaying. I was able to visualize the first four photos but none of the rest from Feb 1. I have AOL as a browser. I hope this issue can be resolved as I would really miss seeing your pictures. They are spectacular! Thank you.

I love everything about your web page - especially the photos and the poetry. It is a treat to be able to bird watch from home on these cold winter days! I do manage to walk near our river daily to check on our nesting pair of bald eagles - right here in town!
I could see all the photos today but when I tried to copy the first one, I could only get text. I am heart broken as that first photo is really stunning.
I am teaching a class to my special ed students - we call it Digital Ornithology - and Pale Male is one of our subjects. Keep up the good work.

I have AOL and can only view the first 4 pictures . I look at the wonderful things you send every morning and I do so miss the. I hope that the trouble can be taken care of soon. I love the work you do. Thank you so much.

Take care Janie

***************************************************


I have aol and can view everything you put on the website today - i especially love the pic of palemale taking a twig to the nest - hope you can resolve the problem - but i can see all the ones of the sparrows bathing and the ones after that as well.

Dear Lincoln,

Everything is loading fine now, even the ones from previous days that I had not been able to open. I do use AOL, and when I saw your note about it being an AOL problem I was skeptical only because I was able to see pictures on lots of other blogs and web site, it was only yours that was a problem. But I went that evening via Mozilla and I was able to open your pictures that way. Today everything seems normal again via my usual AOL program. I am just glad to be able to enjoy the photographs! My, my, those sparrows look awfully wet-I hope it was a warm day!

Hi,

Just wanted to let you know I haven't been able to view your images. I did get the first few, but the rest were blank, and even clicking on open image didn't work.

I hope you will soon go back to the old way. I absolutely LOVE your site and have it bookmarked. It brings great joy.

Thanks,

Kathleen West Orange, New Jersey

Hi Lincoln,

I love your photos on palemale.org. I look at them every day. However, the close-ups are getting out of hand. Photo after photo is a humongous zoom-in of a bird's head, without the rest of the bird. One day I'll log on and see nothing but a huge EYE filling up the entire screen.


A couple of close ups are nice, but to have every shot of a small songbird be a closeup is too much. I hate to be critical because I love your photography. I just like to see the whole bird in a photo.


Thanks very much. I love to visit your site every day and your pictures are wonderful. Pale Male and the Turkey and all the other "little friends" mean very much to me.


Thank you,

Your fan, -Phil

Hi Lincoln…I am able to receive all of ytour photos for Feb 1st….love the head-on shot of Pale Male with twig in beak…and the sparrows bathing are just wonderful. The sun, the colors, the water droplets flying in all directions…I get such a kick out of these guys!

Thanks…..as usual…for your great documentation.

Hi,

Just letting you know that I have AOL and today I could see the first 4 pictures, but not the rest.

Also, I found that if I waited a day, then went to "archives" I could in fact access the previous days photos.

Hope this helps

*******************************************************
LINCOLN,

IT IS 1010A FEB. 02, AND AOL WORKED FOR ALL. HOPE THIS IS THE END OF THE PROBLEM.

THANK YOU ---

Hello Lincoln,

I just loved the set of photographs of the little sparrows bathing. The pure joy of a puddle ( not frozen) on a slightly warmer day. They just made my day ..thankyou.

I have a heated birdbath ( the best gift I ever received ) and sometimes there are as many as 25 robins jostling for a place to bathe even on the coldest day.

Take care, Norma H.

*******************************************************


Hi Lincoln - I can see the first 4 images and none of the rest. Thank you as always for sharing you beautiful photos with us.

Karen

*******************************************************


Hi Lincoln; All the pictures were fine. I didn't notice any difference in the quality and I look at your site every morning.
Kind regards, Rosemary

*******************************************************


Lincoln,

I've been having problems with the photos. Today the first four came through but the rest didn't.

Thanks for the test.

Judy

******************************************************


I'm not having any problems viewing the images.

I saw the first 4 images only. My morning coffee is not the same without your wonderful pictures.

Hi Lincoln,

The first four pictures on my screen are there, but the remainder are not. I hope the problem is resolved soon. I certainly miss seeing your incredibly beautiful pictures every morning. It's the way I like to start my day. Thanks for your wonderful web site. -- Janet K.


*******************************************************


good morning,


the problem is with the new up-loads, i could only view the first 4 photos.


russ daudelin/ xxxx@aol.com

******************************************************


Hi Lincoln: I can only see the first 4 images and that has been happening for about a week or more. I guess it's from when you began a different method. I wish I could see the rest of today's pictures as they will be fabulous, I'm sure. I hope you can fix the problem soon.


Thanks, Lynne


******************************************************


Yes, Lincoln, I can see the first four images but not the others.
Thanks,
-Ann

*******************************************************


can see the 1st 4 but not the rest Please fix having withdraw[a]l!!


*******************************************************


Hi Lincoln,
I have become a great fan of your pictures over the last couple of months and am one of the people that has been experiencing difficulties in seeing them. We were in touch with AOL and followed all their instructions but without any luck. I have no problems viewing them on Firefox but I use AOL more. This morning I can see the first four photographs thank you, as usual they are amazing. Keep up the good work, you have a big fan club over here in the UK. Thank you again and I hope you get to the root of your problem!!


******************************************************


I can see the first four images but not the others


*******************************************************


Lincoln, I just got off the AOL live help & they told me that the problem was at your website. They even had me try using the Internet Explorer instead of AOL & I still could not see the photos. They experienced the same problems & could not see the photos either. They said to contact the webmaster & report the problem to them. I can view photos at all other websites except yours. I REALLY miss seeing your photos daily. Could you also check with your webmaster??


Rose


*******************************************************


I use compuserve and have not been able to get the photos


*****************************************************


LINCOLN,


THANK YOU FOR THE MENTION...


THE PROBLEM STILL EXISTS AND PROBABLY WILL UNTIL MONDAY OR SO. AOL DOESN'T PAY OVERTIME......


THE SITE OPENS, WITHOUT PROBLEM, ON YAHOO....AND OTHERS....


REGARDS,

GENE F.

*******************************************************


Dear Lincoln,


Not even the pictures from previous weeks are loading, I thought it was just my stupid fussy computer! When you click on the picture in the archives, that one picture opens, but the rest are just blank boxes, and clicking either on the little X in the corner or on the blank screen and selecting "show picture" doe snot work....I am in withdrawal from your pcitures!!


Sally


****************************************************


No pix--had already tried right clicking and "show photo" to no avail. But this is just an fyi--Thanks so much for all you do.

Dear Lincoln,


I wanted to thank you for taking time to stop and talk to me and my friend last Sunday at the Great Lawn. I was just so happy to see you and have always wanted to meet you. Hoping to meet you was the main reason that we started out in Central Park on Sunday. I discovered things in the park that I didn’t even know existed and I have you to thank.

Thank you for pointing out Pale Male to me and for the photographs. We really appreciated it very much and I want to thank you for everything that you do for the wildlife, the horses, etc. You do make a difference and although a large part of population is non-caring and non-understanding, those who do understand and have similar convictions appreciate your proactiveness.


Many thanks and best wishes.


Barbara


*****************************************************


Lincoln,

Show picture does NOT work for me. Still no photos today... Did you do something differently??

Rose

******************************************************


Hi Lincoln!

I visit your site each and every day and have never had a problem loading images. Thank you for all the effort you put into what you do - it shows.

Living in Rochester, NY I follow the fate of the "Kodak Falcons" regularly, and came across your site 6 months or so ago from a link at the Kodak Falcon site and have been hooked ever since.

As a matter of fact, I like and appreciate and respect what you do so much, I started a Facebook group for your fans. Hope you don't mind, but efforts such as yours are worth letting the world know about.

Your friend, fan, and admirer, Maureen

*****************************************************


LINCOLN,

I JUST TRIED TO DISPLAY THE WEB SITE ON ANOTHER ISP AND HAD NO PROBLEM....I'LL LET AOL KNOW...THANKS ANYWAY AND SORRY TO HAVE BOTHERED YOU.

LOOKS LIKE OUR PRETTYS ARE GETTING READY TO MATE......THAT SEASON IS CLOSE.....

REGARDS,

GENE F.

Hi Lincoln, I thought that you might be interested to learn that what I believe to be a young red tail has become a regular visitor to my roof garden in hells kitchen (46th and 10th). I first noticed it on a couple of occasions n December but saw it three times this week. its probably attracted by the birds that I feed- largely doves, sparrows and finches this time of year. it certainly clears the deck when its around.


Love your website.

*******************************************************


LINCOLN,

FOR THE PAST 2 DAYS I HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO RETREIVE THE PIX IN CENTRAL PARK OR WHEREVER. THE SITE COMES UP BUT THE PIX ARE NOT. SHOWING BLACK BACKGROUND WITH THAT SILLY LITTLE RED "X". RIGHT CLICKING AND THEN CLICKING ON "SHOW PICTURE" DOESN'T WORK. I HAVE SPOKEN TO AOL AND THEY CLAIM THE TRANSMISSION IS GETTING "LOST" AFTER BEING REQUESTED BY THE VIEWER. I HAVE TRIED JUST ABOUT ALL I KNOW HOW TO DO BUT I AM STILL UNABLE TO RETREIVE.

I KNOW YOU AREN'T DOING ANYTHING WRONG. I BELIEVE IT IS ON AOL....OF COURSE THEY WON'T SAY / ADMIT THAT.

JUST THOUGHT I'D LET YOU KNOW IN CASE THERE ARE SOME OTHER PEOPLE WHO ARE HAVING A PROBLEM.

BEST REGARDS,

GENE F.

*******************************************************


Lincoln, None of your photos were visible today Friday, Jan. 30 on my computer. Yesterday, just the 1st one could not be seen. They all have a little x in the upper left hand corner. What is happening???
