    Lights don't break

    Just noticed the lights at the top of the screen. I'm using a MacBook and as I run the cursor along the lights they do not break. I do however get a small color dot below the light in the same color as the light. No big deal, but I just wanted to let you know.

    Re: Lights don't break

    Yep, I suspect it has to do with the fact that I have moved the site from http:// to secure https:// . Seems the plugin (which was developed years ago and is no longer supported) references some code that uses the http:// protocol for the animation of the lights breaking. When I have some time I will attempt to resolve the issue, but it's probably not going to be a trivial fix.

    Re: Lights don't break

    I think the issue is independent of browser. I think it has more to do with the fact that the site is now using SSL and that plugin for the lights wasn't made to be used on an SSL encrypted site.

    I got them to break as normal. You have to unblock the Flash script in your browser. In Chrome, the blocked script shows up on the right side of the address bar. I also had to turn Flash back on in settings.

    Most operating systems no longer support Flash - seems like html5 is one of the new standards.
