Ship-shape site

9th July 2004 at 01:00
The otherwise excellent review of the free science online resource,, contained reference to a glitch in running two virtual visits to an oil refinery and a North Sea oil platform (TES, Teacher, June 18).

This caused a great deal of concern to ISE, the site's developers. On contacting the reviewer it seems that the problem was connected to his machine's preferences, not the technology on the site.

ISE would like to assure users of the site and its sponsors that all the resources are operational.
