My Browser isn't Big Enough! I Can't See Everything!
Betty from Boston blurts out: I cant see all the things on the menu, they are cut off, but I have lots of space on the sides. Whats happening?
Well Betty, its not that your browser isnt big enough, the problem may be that its really old and tired. It wants to retire. All this new technology is just too much for it. Explorer Version 3.0 for example just cant cope with frames very well. We recommend you let it gracefully age - somewhere else! Upgrade to Explorer 4.0 or better. You wont regret it. (Your Welcome!) Netscape versions 4+ work really well too. P.S. Netscape 3.0 is ok.

As a matter of fact there is one thing you can try. You might want to change your screen resolution of your monitor. You can change the monitor settings in your control panel to a higher screen resolution. Standard settings are 600 x 800. Older monitors may be set at 640 x 480. On a windows machine,
Flash & Quicktime, RealPlayer (aka Interactivity, Animation &
Video Clips )
You bet its worth it! Shockwave is a free program called a "plug-in" that allows you to listen to great music, and explore interactive stuff, like the composers gallery. If you don't already have it, click here to download it:
It only takes a couple of minutes to download. Be sure to follow the directions for installing it. Dont forget to make sure you have speakers and a soundcard in your computer to hear the music.

Great question! Actually you need the free QuickTime plug-in to play some of the activities in the Creating Music Composition Studio built by Mort Subotnick. In addition, to view the video interviews you need either Quicktime or Real Player, though we recommend Quicktime.
Well, this could be for a couple of different reasons. Lets walk through a few steps and see if we can track it down. You need to have 3 things,
Step 1) Do you hear sound when use your computer for other programs? If not, you might not have a sound card or speakers or your computer may not be set up properly. Mac machines come with sound cards and speakers built in. One way to test a windows machine is to check the SOUND SETTINGS in your CONTROL PANEL. If you don't hear SOUNDS then you probably don't have a sound card.
For WIN95 you can check your machine as follows:
2) Do you have Shockwave correctly installed?
Good Luck and enjoy New York Philharmonics KIDZONE!
