"Lest some think the movie will be too dull and stuffy, Jackson assured
moviegoers there will be plenty of wizards lobbing pinecone grenades
and wacky barrel rides down rivers. Orlando Bloom and that girl from
Lost will also be there for some reason."
But too bad the site doesn't actually load.
Too busy doing ... other things ... perhaps?
It loads for me.
Allow me to clarify:
I see the page.
I see the headline.
I see the scroll bar.
The scroll bar does not work.
None of the (presumed) links at the top ("Trending" and so on)
activate, never mind work.
Clicking on the text and using the keyboard does not work.
So, yes, technically it loads.
But, realistically, it doesn't.
After halting it and reloading it, I did get the scroll bar to work.
Sort of. Once.
Apparently, it is so busy loading ads and/or video that actually
displaying the article is ... not possible. This would explain why the
mouse is, except for moving about, disabled.
Perhaps it only works if popups are allowed ... but I'm not planning
on finding out.
They really need to fix this. I couldn't even get the "Subscribe"
button to work. How are they going to make money if people can't
subscribe? Not that I was planning to, but still.
But maybe they have a "thing" about IE 11.
