Javascript bugs in FF and IE

I'm experiencing multiple bugs in Instructables, most JavaScript related. FF 11.0, have these same problems with FF10.2?. Instructables on safe list @ NoScript 1. Images look ok in instructables, switching between them in steps do not work at all. I click on the second image. It should replace the first one in the same container, nothing happens. 2. Can not vote. The stars are simply not there anymore. 3. There are 4 fingers white gap above, and 3 fingers white gap below the instructable title / photo-step row FF Javascript error console shows no errors. Things like Favoring/Unfavoring, commenting works fine. IE 8.0.6 1. Same problem as previous #1, yet clicking on the second image opens the image thumbnail directly in a new window. 2. IE displays "Errors on page" with this text: "Webpage error details User Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 8.0; Windows NT 5.1; Trident/4.0; .NET CLR 2.0.50727; .NET CLR 3.0.4506.2152; .NET CLR 3.5.30729; .NET CLR 1.1.4322) Timestamp: Wed, 14 Mar 2012 13:18:56 UTC Message: 'f[...]' is null or not an object Line: 25 Char: 358 Code: 0 URI: I bet some script near the bottom of scripts is killing the rest of scripts, this is why some scripts work and some don't.

Pro Features for free?

Hi! I have this nice little laptop supplied by my school that I use to go on Instructables a lot, and I noticed that even though I donot have a pro account, I can still use the Allsteps feature. My laptop is running Internet Explorer 8 on a windows 7 machine. I belive that Javascript is at least partly disabled, and I am acessing the internet through a websence proxy. Whenever I am logged into the Instructables, I can simply click on the allsteps button, and instead of asking me to upgrade, it will give me all the steps on one page. I have tried this on my home computer, and it asks me to upgrade, so I am considering this to be a bug.

SPyware - The Web Of Trust? ( WOT)

Recently Ive been very jumpy about spyware. it seems that on99% of everywebsite I see, there's a spyware ad in a corner. Ive been wondering how much spyware I've installed without knowing.... Antispyware software is good, but it doesnt always do the whole job. Most only block a program after its already started. Ive heard about the Web Of Trust. Supposedly, its a network or people who rate the safety level of a website. Ater you install the program, a safety rating will appear next to it on google, IE or Firefox. I tried researching it, but I cant find any RELIABLE sources. I was wondering if you guys have heard about this or know of something similar. Im ver worried about spyware and would like to know of other safety precautions. Aso talk about spyware in general here.

High-tech tool (ie laser-cutter) gripe

You know, there are some high-tech tools that I'd like to have, and it's starting to annoy me that they're so SIMILAR, but there doesn't seem to be any way to combine them and save some of the costs. Consider your Laser cutter, your CNC router (for plastic or wood), your PCB milling machine, and your CNC hotwire foam cutter. All feature a major portion of their cost in a precision X-Y tool movement (and sometimes Z.) But can I switch tools (and perhaps bases) and convert one to another ? No! Sigh. The differences in tool and base properties are pretty significant; is there any way something like this might be possible?
