megaKidstuff stuff works best if you get Netscape Navigator 3.0 or later.
|Click on the big
megaKidstuff title at the top of this page and then pick
a name from the pop-down list, or the dial
selector list. If you get the cool dial, put your
mouse over it and without clicking, spin it around as if
you were spinning any dial. Don't click on the dial until
you see the name of the megaKidstuff converter you want
to play with.
You can figure out things you always wondered about, like how many seconds, days or weeks old you are, or more amazingly, how many seconds old your parents are. And other things to make you smarter than your teachers, like how many nanometers in an inch or how many quarts in a chaldron (huh?). If you're using Netscape Navigator 3.0 or newer, you can pull up a fun (but very powerful) calculator by clicking on the +/- button at the bottom right corner of every megaKidstuff converter.
|If you can't get something
to work as expected there may be something wrong with
your head, just kidding! It's probably something in the
way your browser is set up. Below you can read about our
suggested settings and minimum system requirements.
On the MS Windows, Win95/NT platforms, you must have your display system set to use small fonts or else the modules become distorted and, possibly, impossible to use. Small fonts is usually the default but people with larger monitors operating at high resolution sometimes use large fonts. These people will need to revert to small fonts. If the megaKidstuff converters look OK to you then don't worry about it. As is true for almost any reasonable use of the Internet and specifically the World Wide Web, a 14.4 bps modem can be considered the minimum practical connection speed. Some modules may take a while to load at that speed. 28.8 bps or faster is recommended. We have not tested this site on anything less than a Pentium class computer but it should work fine on slower machines. The speed of the computer should not be the determining factor of the speed of use, however slow modems, telephone line noise, Internet connection and even the time of day may be. It would be wise on slower systems not to have unnecessary things running in the background.
Occasionally, bugs in Netscape Navigator and Internet Explorer may cause the program to crash. Netscape is more robust than Internet Explorer in this regard and we recommend its use. We regret any inconvenience this may cause but many websites are doing the same. We expect that upcoming improvements from both Netscape and Microsoft will help limit crashes.
