Site Update Complete!



By Dean ~ August 12th, 2011. Filed under: Announcements.

Thanks for your patience!

The new new looks for the site and the blog should both be up. Also, please note the new name for the blog. We changed it to “Performance Engineering” to more accurately reflect the focus that we’ve had for several years. We provide turnkey solutions to performance engineering issues in the design of complex resource constrained systems. Our particular focus is on Software Defined Radio.

I was as careful as I could be, but you may encounter some “wierdness” with the site (broken links, typos, etc.), if so, please let me know and I’ll take care of it.

[Update:  I know that the menu bar is broken on the blog for IE (of course)]

[Update2:  The above issue should be fixed, now.  Please let me know if you don’t find this to be the case.]

Image of the Foresight Systems M&S Favicon[Update3:  You should be seeing the new favicon.  If you’re still seeing the old “eye”, it’s probably because your favorite browser has cached some flavor of the eye favicon.  There’s a long list of “magic” solutions for forcing your browser to update, but this is the one that worked best for me on both Chrome and Firefox.  If you’re using IE, you’re on your own.

  1. Close ALL tabs that are showing one of the old “eye” icons.  It really has to be all of them.
  2. Clear your browser’s cache – specific steps vary by browser.
  3. Actually type the URL of the new favicon into your address bar:
        http://www.foresightsystems-mands.com/favicon.ico
  4. If your browser brings up an image of the favicon in the currently open tab, you’re probably OK.  You may have to tell your browser to open the image itself, rather than downloading, or previewing it.
  5. Open a new tab on one of our pages…

Hopefully, this will work for you.  In my case, just clearing the cache didn’t work, and just browsing to the favicon didn’t work.  I actually had to follow the steps exactly as listed above.
