This will only affect the expats among us. When I try to bookmark favorite programs in schedules on the bbc prime web site I get the following message "Microsoft.VB scipt runtime error 800 a 0006 overflow 'clnt' /schedules/bookmark.asp. line 32" and cannot bookmark any programs. Anybody know what this means, and how to rectifiy it.

I've just had a look in the site and, like you cannot bookmark anything in the schedules. Is this because they are "moving targets" and thus subject to constant change?

I can bookmark the main pages and most other parts.

I don't know, that's why I posted the thread its strange that they offer a service that does not work. I tried contacting the web master but have had no reply, maybe someone els knows so I'll keep it going for a bit.

The question was rhetorical;-)

Anyway, don't expect a high speed reply from the BBC as, if they are anything like you could be waiting a couple of weeks!

Hope you get sorted out.

Well it is probably the most comprehensive and almost continually updated website anywhere in the world.....:-)

Won't have much time for anything else I suppose.

Thanks everyone, but it seems strange that the error message is from microsoft and maybe something to do with settings within the web page itself. I just wanted to know if I was the only one, it seems that I'm not so that puts my mind at rest. Ah well another one of those strange computer things we all have to put up with from time to time.
