If you can see this message then you are using a browser (probably Internet Explorer) which does not support the international web standards used by the LAS website and many others.
Click here for an example of how the site should look.
Please consider using an alternative browser - especially if you are on Windows XP which only supports the outdated Internet Explorer 8 browser - such as Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome which do have support for these web standards. As well as not supporting modern features and web standards, old versions of browsers - especially Internet Explorer - can expose your computer to security risks. The Browse Happy website has a list of the latest versions of all major browsers, including Internet Explorer (but remember Windows XP only supports up to IE8!)
If updating/changing your browser is not possible, do not panic - all of the LAS website is still available to you and we are working to make the layout compatible with outdated browsers.
In the meantime, you will have to scroll down a way to see the page you wish to view. You can also skip past the moon phase info, etc. and click here after you've loaded a page to jump to the content.
What are News Feeds?
- News Feeds provide a way for you to be notified when a new article is added to the LAS website. Please see this page for more information.
Why do some links have a line through them?
- This indicates a broken link.
Links are automatically checked on a periodic basis (generally every 3 days), and if found to be no longer valid at the time of the scan, are marked with a strike-through: like this.
Sometimes links are marked like this due to temporary internet problems, and can clear up quickly, but it most cases, it’s because the website the link points at has rearranged its pages or has gone entirely.
Most links on our site are valid, however there are some (particularly those migrated from our pre-2004 website) for which we have not been able to find their new URLs (addresses). If you see a broken link and know of its new/correct address, please let us know so we can update it. There is a message at the top of our Links page with how to do this.
