All seems ok now... :shrug2:

Tried 4 different browsers and on smartphone.When I switched to 3G on smartphone all was fine.Did a computer restart and still not displaying properly.
Cookies are enabled for BBC and all other other sites were fine.

I was just about to phone isp support when it all displayed as normal.. :hmm:

YYGT (Yeah, you get that !!!)

That's a phrase I've not heard for years. Used to be a favourite comment of one manager at one client I worked at  ;) ;)

Hi Stuart, yes I remember it well from the likes of Colin Galpin and others when I worked at NatWest. It seemed to be what we might refer today as a 'catchall', when something cannot be adequately explained / resolved.

I think you and I exchange some messages about those days some time in the recent past.

Yes indeed we did. In fact I think it was a predecessor of Colin who introduced me to that phrase when Colin was a mere systems programmer  ;)

That wouldn't have been Barry Rimmer, would it. I thought they were around at the same time

Yes, I had this yesterday in Chrome.

Curiously, when I opened the bbc site in Internet Explorer, it displayed correctly, and yet it was still failing in Chrome (despite pressing F5 and CTRL F5 to refresh).

Closing and restarting Chrome cleared it.

I assume they had some sort of failure at their end, which was fairly quickly resolved, but Chrome got confused by it?  :-\

They wrote their own scripting library a year or so ago.
