Re: How to stop starting up with URL preloaded

Hello,

Could it be the integrated web browser? Is that open? If so then please try closing it (F8 should toggle it) and see if that makes any difference.

Re: Running Batch - Error 10060 -- Status 404 -- Reason Winsock - Connection Time out

Also, if I paste the link in the CSS Validator and do it ouside batch mode, it works. I can do a full validation. Hello, Did you do this using ' File->Open from the Web ' or the integrated web browser? If these links are publicly accessible then I can try to reproduce the problem here if you can se...

Re: Running Batch - Error 10060 -- Status 404 -- Reason Winsock - Connection Time out

Hello Kelley, I'm sorry for the trouble. 1. First, are you using the latest version, v18.02? If using a version from a year or more ago then it may not work with the latest SSL/TLS connection updates (and depending on the server settings). 2. Did you try setting the ' Max concurrent HTTP requests ' ...

Best domain name registrar

What company is your favorite domain name registrar? I used to use GoDaddy but then transferred a lot of my domains to Namecheap. Namecheap is good but I am starting to like namesilo (https://www.namesilo.com/) more and more and plan to transfer domains there as they come up for renewals. Their pric...

Re: Pingdom Web test.

That stinks that the cost is a lot. I can understand how the costs might not be worth the benefits if you have to pay a lot in licensing costs. For me it was mostly just updating the server and software, turning it on, and doing some testing, which just took time. The server is Linux and server is A...

Re: Pingdom Web test.

That's not bad at all. Can't complain about a 99. I noticed no DNS lookup in the graph... I guess it was already cached.

But yes, definitely should go HTTP/2 if you aren't already (your score still looks great to me even if you aren't using HTTP/2 yet).

Re: Pingdom Web test.

Waking this topic back up... I tested my website from Melbourne, Australia (a US site made me wait in a queue then failed). Looks like my current performance grade for www.htmlvalidator.com is "A" (94). Load time is 2.67s... but only faster than 58% of sites (maybe because I checked from the Austral...

The machine is older and has 4GB of memory. At that memory size I judge 32 bit to be the wisest thing to do.
Thanks! How would it affect your use of CSS HTML Validator if the next major release at the end of this year (or early next) was 64-bit only?

Periodically, maybe once a year, I use a 32 bit Win 10 machine. It's a laptop.

This might be for up to 4 weeks.

In those times I generally need to do some work with the validator.
Interesting... is there a specific reason that is a 32-bit machine? Is it just old?

That's interesting:

"If you don't want me to read your page, then I must read your page".

Am I being too harsh?
Maybe a little too harsh. :)

More like "if you don't want me to index your page then I must read it to see the noindex instruction".
