I was wondering if the twitter feed on the frontpage appears to be working for anyone (or does it just spin, like it does for me at the moment).I have a feeling this is a twitter problem, but would like to hear if it is working for anyone (in case it is my machine).Thanks, Callum

Thanks Gordon,I had some direct mail too - and it did not seem to be working, so i've replaced the component that does this, so it now shows a simple list (for now, anyway).Cheers, Callum

This problem, for me at least, seems to have reared it's head again. Is it global or just my machine?I'm using Win XP and IE 8, if that helps!

All I can see is a spinning segmented circle.

This seems to be a 'known' problem specific to IE 8 (and maybe 7) browsers - IE 9, Firefox and Chrome all seem to work ok.I have raised it with the developers of the plugin used, but not heard of a fix yet. If a fix is not forthcoming soon, i'll look for another plugin to do this.Thanks, Callum
