Technical Info

Q: What browser do I need to access this site ? 
A: This site should perform and display almost identically on most modern browsers.  It has been tested on Firefox 1.0 and 1.0.6;  Netscape 6.1, 6.2 and 7;  Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.5 and 6.0;  Opera 6 and 7;  Mozilla 1.4 and 1.7; 

The site will not operate satisfactorily on older browsers and text-only (e.g. Lynx) browsers. Please note that Netscape 4.x is no longer supported.  Opera 6 will not display the menu correctly - however it is still usable

Q: What minimum monitor colour depth and sizes are required for viewing ? 
A: Because the site is photo-intensive, your system should be set-up to display at least 32K colours, and preferably full-colour (24-bit-colour, a.k.a 'millions-of-colours').  A 256-colour set-up will be unsatisfactory.  The minimum screen size to view pictures and most other pages comfortably without excessive scrolling is 800 x 600.

Q: What other browser settings might influence the viewing of this site ? 
A: This site needs cookies to maintain session state correctly.  Please see question on cookies in the Privacy/Security topic.  You must therefore turn on cookies on your browser.  If you use a site-specific cookie controller, allow cookies to be stored by site www.cpisalumni.org.  Sorry, you will not be able to view this site with cookies turned off (See Problems topic)
