[REBOL] TETOAYTM - rebol voodoo in Internet Explorer

From: jason:cunliffe:verizon at: 2-Sep-2002 21:36

Moral of the story => TETOAYTM [The war song of LINGO programmers: "Test Early Test Often On All Your Target Machines"] So folks, I have been struggling for days unsuccessfully to get rebol file upload over http working. And even with lots help from Andreas and everyone [thanks!]... it has not been working. After testing all sort of server side script issues, today I discovered a problem with my Internet Explorer. I have been having trouble executing even the simplest rebol cgi test scripts on a [client+server]system which has been working fine for a while. Vanilla is running well and that's significant CGI app. But a simple "hello world" from the browser has been crapping out in the weirdest ways all day. Sometimes it runs, sometimes it tries to download the script. Tried all the permutations I could think of. I am unable to determine a pattern. Then I tried the machine right next to me [almost identical to this one] Bingo! none of these problems.. Now I get back to programming :-) But what !~@#$ is going on? Somehow it my system/IE has gone into shock. When the browser encounters a .r script it cannot consistently decide what to do with it. Usually it just pops open a file download requester. But Netscape 4.5 is ok, responds normally. I am running IE 6.0.2600.0000 on Win98se [ahem]. Q1: What has happened? Q2: How do I fix it? Q3: have you ever had this happen to you with rebol no windows before? thanks ./Jason
