Safety feature, perhaps? To prevent someone from posting a malicious script?

Um, yes. :whistling:

Almost positive it's a server side security "feature". We don't want people posting links that can run unauthorized javascript in your browser. :blink:

Cool trick. Could you make it your home page or do you have to type www.geekstogo.com every time then?

For me I had to copy the code from the website that you linked to. You have to load the page fully first then delete the url and then copy the java script in. Couldn't you make a button on your toolbar to just click on to get it to spin any page?

If you change some of the varaibles then it changes how the page spins.

yes it does, after you copy and paste it into the URL you must remove the space between java script. As it has already been mentioned it is a security feature so that if someone was posting maliuos code, someone would copy and paste in and find themselves in trouble.

yeah, it works on some pages, if you do it right away. There's a few other one's i've seen like this. You can do some pretty cool stuff with javascript.

I'm looking at ajax at the moment, you can recieve information instantly without refreshing a complete web page. Very quick and saves bandwith.

bandwith isn't a problem, we get cable here with unlimited for 30$ a month.....in canada no ISP has a limit that i know of......i'd hate to be on a limit......i'd be screwed.
James

Edit: what is this ajax anyways?

Basically, it's an interactive internet. Unlike you're interactive desktop, the internet is rather one way. You enter information, it goes all the way back and gives you all the information again. Not just the bits you want. (Making it very slow for some). It's hard to explain, i've only just started to explore it myself.
Here's a link:

(AJAX = Asynchronous JavaScript + XML)
I'll find some examples later...

edit: I have unlimited Internet too, but after ten gigs it slows from 8mbps to 64 kbps :whistling:

Now lests make it excessive compulsive!

Copy and paste this. I edited it to make it faster :whistling:

Well if you change it to (500*Math.cos(x*Math.PI/180)) and void(5) it goes crazy.

Copy & paste this:

That'll work:

javascript:x=0;e=document.body;e.style.position="absolute";function rt(){e.style.top=100-(50*Math.cos(x*Math.PI/180))+"px";e.style.left=100+(50*Math.sin(x*Math.PI/180))+"px";x+=5};setInterval("rt()",50);void(0);

For every safety trick there is a "solution" :whistling:
