Do you think there was a reason for it starting to work on post 666?    Eeek     Eeek     Eeek

No it must be Firefox.  What do you use Joanna.  Oh and I adore my Mac. Big_Hug   Have tried a PC and hated it. I guess it is just what you are used to.  We used Macs at school too.

Not sure what your test revealed, Danuta:

1 - smileys do not appear when using Chrome

2 - smileys do not appear when using Firefox

3 - none of the above

What do you normally use, TA?

Google Chrome. My system runs on Windows XP.  Anything else you need?

I'll try that again!

Right to clarify this for Danny. I am using Safari and cannot post smileys. Yesterday I tried Firefox and the smileys worked. Hence me reasoning that it is Safari that does not like them all of a sudden. So TA and I have no similarities at all except for the fact that we started having the same problems at the same time, which I think in itself is odd. Hope this helps.

Eyjafjallajökull volcano area... present assessment Wednesday, 12, 2010...

As of the 12th of May, the Institute of Earth Sciences and the Icelandic Met Office (IMO) reported that over the weekend, the newly reinvigourated ash eruptions from Eyjafjallajökull combined with favourable winds meant that ash from the eruption closed airspace over swaths of Europe, including Ireland, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Austria and Germany. These disruptions are continuing into the new week, although most of the disruption is for transatlantic flights. However, the threat of ash is more present than ever, as Ryanair admitted to finding that two planes had ash in the engines (although at first, the airline said they were "separate technical problems unrelated to the Icelandic eruption.") This looks like the pattern Europe may have to face over the summer: if the volcano continues on this pattern of explosive, strombolian-to-plinian style eruptions that can produce significant ash and the winds turn towards the continent, air travel will be disrupted. Some airlines are already seeing the effect of the ash on their business and this is likely to continue as people make plans for their vacations or their swanky film festivals.

As for Eyjafjallajökull, the eruption is continuing on with impressive strombolian explosions in the main vent area and the continued, slow progress of the lava flow down the flank of the volcano. The ash production from the volcano has tapered over the weekend, but the plume is nevertheless still impressive, reaching 4-6 km (14,000-20,000 feet) in height. The IMO says that the eruptive rate has been decreasing over the past week as the volcano has deflated, but the eruption have become spasmodic with burst of increased activity. However, none of this suggests that the eruption is anywhere close to an end.

Based on: IMO seismic monitoring; IES-IMO GPS monitoring; IMO hydrological data; IMO weather radar measurements, MODIS satellite images.
Eruption plume: Height (a.s.l.): ~5 km / 17,000 ft but sometimes shoots up to 6 km / 20,000 ft. Heading: Southeast. Low level winds are variable. Colour: Grey / light gray. Tephra fallout: Ashfall reported at Drangshlíð and Skarðshlíð almost continuously for the last 24 hours. The ash is rather coarse, estimated by the farmers to be ~2-3 mm. Lightning: No lightning has been detected on instruments over the eruption site for the last week. Noises: No reports.

Meltwater: Low water discharge at Gígjökull. Daily fluctuations in discharge and temparature are dominating the water flow at Markarfljótsbrú. No flash floods have been detected. Conditions at eruption site: There was no flight today, but observations from web cameras show similar activity to yesterday. The crater is getting higher. Lava flow is low and not visible on cameras. In the afternoon there was a slight increase in explosive activity, which resulted in a higher plume for a while. Seismic tremor: Has been similar for the past 3 days, and similar amplitude on all frequency bands. Earthquakes: A sequence of earthquakes started around 1100 hrs this morning. Some 40 earthquakes were located, mostly at depths of 18 – 20 km and magnitude range Ml 1 – Ml 2. As the background tremor is much lower now than last week, much smaller earthquakes are observed, partly counting for the number of earthquakes detected this morning. GPS deformation: Horizontal displacement towards the centre of Eyjafjallajökull volcano and subsidence. Some irregular movements are seen in the height of the station closest to the volcano.

Overall assessment: The earthquake sequence this morning indicates that magma is still flowing in from the mantle. Presently there are no indications that the eruption is about to end.

Eyjafjallajökull is located immediately west of Katla volcano. Eyjafjallajökull consists of an E-W-trending, elongated ice-covered basaltic-andesite stratovolcano with a 2.5-km-wide summit caldera. Fissure-fed lava flows occur on both the eastern and western flanks of the volcano, but are more prominent on the western side. Although the 1666-m-high volcano has erupted during historical time, it has been less active than other volcanoes of Iceland's eastern volcanic zone, and relatively few Holocene lava flows are known. The sole historical eruption of Eyjafjallajökull, during December 1821 to January 1823, produced intermediate-to-silicic tephra from the central caldera.

The Current Colour Code for Eyjafjallajökull is ORANGE .

I'm on a mac ( Heart )  as pcs ( Dalek ) are just so needlessly complicated, use firefoxCool as it is just heaps more efficient than safariMonster, and I have never ever had any problems whatsoever with using the smileys or posting.Whistle  Big_LaughBig_LaughBig_LaughBig_Laugh    Sorry

Except with the maths.

Natch.Doh

Very few planes going over here today- hope you get your trip Danuta! We've had various friends stranded here this week- they aren't making so much of a public song and dance about cancellations as they were in the last weeks, so check online before you go to the airport.

Kateuk makes things at http://www.etsy.com/shop/finkstuff and sometimes she does this too http://www54paintings.blogspot.com/ and also this http://finkstuff.weebly.com/

I've noticed a distinct lack of planes here, too, Kate; I'm wondering if Luton Airport is operating to full capacity.Confused

I'll try that again!
