Looks like the Great Firewall or something like it is preventing you from completely loading www.skritter.com because it is hosted on Google App Engine, which is periodically blocked. Try instead our mirror:

This might also be caused by an internet filter, such as SafeEyes. If you have such a filter installed, try adding appspot.com to the list of allowed domains.

can't select a mnemonic

jww1066   July 27th, 2010 5:53p.m.

I occasionally have a problem when selecting a shared mnemonic. I click on "See all" and get the popup, I click on the one I want to use, but the popup doesn't close. If I click on the red X it closes but it hasn't applied the mnemonic I selected. This is on Chrome 5.0.375.125 on Windows XP.

Yeah that happens to me sometimes too. If I continue on to the next word(s) and then flip back later I can usually select it then.

I was using Firefox but recently switched to Chrome and it happens occasionally on both.

It sounds like there is probably a JavaScript error happening somewhere in there. Next time it happens, can you check the error console and see if there are any problems? (On Windows Chrome it's Ctrl+Shift+J and you're looking for red error messages in the bottom panel).

OK, it happened again just now. The JavaScript console reports a couple of errors. Here's the contents of the console log:

P.S. this is with Chrome 5.0.375.127 on Windows XP.

nick   September 1st, 2010 2:09p.m.

Wait, did you get this error again in the last couple days? I added some error handling for this, but it hasn't fired. Did I set it up wrong?

jww1066   September 1st, 2010 2:18p.m.

I got it just now, yes.

nick   September 8th, 2010 11:51a.m.

I see what's going wrong with the error reporting. The next time it happens, I should have more information.
