problems with mls search

The Multiple Listings Search won't pull up any properties or seems to not work

InHouse's MLS search engine is provided by an independent service provider and uses very complex scripting. Many internet firewall and virus protection programs re-write web pages "on the fly," adding proprietary code that interferes with web pages as they load. These programs may interfere with the MLS search engine and block the search engine's scripting capability.

Try turning your firewall off and running your search again. Also, see our help section about Internet Firewalls and Security.

no audio or video

Video/Audio doesn't play when I click them

Get Apple Quicktime FREEInHouse's website uses audio and video files in  Apple Quicktime format. To play these files, you must install the Apple Quicktime Plugin on your machine. To update your version of Apple Quicktime, click here. InHouse's video files are formatted for a broadband or high-speed Internet connection. These are very big files, 5-15 Megabytes in size. If you are on a dial-up connection, there will be a very long wait for these videos to play, and your connection may time out, which  means they may not play at all.

If you are using Internet Explorer on a Macintosh computer, the Quicktime plugin may not function. If you are using Mac OSX, try using either Safari or Mozilla FireFox for Macintosh OSX. If you are using system 9 or earlier on a Macintosh, the only browser available is Microsoft Internet Explorer version 5.1.7, and Apple doe snot support that browser with the Quicktime plugin.

how to turn off clicks

I keep hearing "clicks" from your web pages. It's really annoying

This site uses scripts that rotate pages and features within pages. Internet Explorer has a "click" feature most people don't know how to or even realize they can turn off. If you have more than one explorer window open, these clicks can get really annoying. Luckily, you can turn this feature off.

Click START—CONTROL PANELS—SOUNDS and select SOUNDS and AUDIO DEVICES. Select the SOUNDS tab, scroll down to Windows Explorer, and find the START NAVIGATION sound. In the pulldown menu below it, you will see the sound selected for this activity, 'Windows XP Start.' If you click the arrow to the right of it, you will confirm this is, indeed, that annoying click sound.

Select NONE from the pulldown menu (it is at the top of the list). You can then click SAVE AS and name this sound scheme something (so it'll be easier to turn the click back on, though I can't imagine why anyone would want to. It's among Microsoft's more annoying innovations, and turning it off should be a LOT easier than this).

windows xp service pack 2

I have problems reading InHouse's eMail

I get annoying warnings from Internet Explorer every time I use this site.

Microsoft, in its infinite wisdom, has incorporated new safety tools in windows XP. If you own a new computer or have automatic updates turned on, your computer has likely installed Windows XP Service Pack 2, which incorporates these new safety features. While they have definite advantages, these new features also come with cumbersome warnings and alerts that most people do not know how to turn off.

InHouse's new eMail is formatted like a web page. Most newer eMail readers like Microsoft Outlook and Eudora should be able to display HTML eMail messages properly.

InHouse's eMail uses a wallpaper graphic that should download when the message displays. If your computer is very old or very new, you may experience problems with this function.

Older computers may not be capable of displaying HTML eMail messages. InHouse's eMail messages should display in plain text.

Newer machines, running Windows XP Service Pack 2 or higher, have annoying security protocols in place which may prevent the wallpaper from downloading from InHouse's web site.

If you do not see our wallpaper in eMail sent from InHouse, your computer is probably blocking the image. If you use Microsoft Outlook or Outlook Express: right-click on the message in the In Box window, select Junk Mail and then Add Sender's Domain To Your Safe Sender's List.

InHouse's wallpaper should display once you've informed your computer that we're okay!

To use InHouse's web site (and eMail) with the new, over-protective Windows XP Service Pack 2, we strongly suggest you add lisehunt.com to your list of Trusted Websites.

Click TOOLS and choose INTERNET OPTIONS.

In the INTERNET OPTIONS window, select SECURITY. Click on TRUSTED SITES. DE-SELECT the little box that says "Require Server Verification."

Add this  domain to your Trusted Sites (you can copy and paste them):

http://springsproperty.com

http://inhouse-cs.com

http://inhouserealtyinc.com

http://equitychest.com

http://lisehunt.com

http://phonogram.us

Click OK.

Try viewing InHouse's eMail again. The wallpaper should download.

Try viewing InHouse's web site again. Most alerts should now be gone.

 

firewalls & privacy protection

Ok, I added the site to my Trusted Sites list, and there are still problems!

Many new home computers come with firewalls and other privacy protections preinstalled. Unfortunately, many of these products re-write web pages "on the fly," adding proprietary code that interferes with web pages as they load. Many of these products require you to be a rocket scientist to understand how to use them. Here are some basic steps you can take to assure your over-protective firewall that this site is, indeed, safe to view. If these steps do not help, please contact our webmaster for additional help.

Windows XP Service Pack 2 Firewall
The basic privacy controls built into Windows are accessible through the INTERNET OPTIONS section of the TOOLS menu in Internet Explorer: Click the PRIVACY tab.

Click SITES:

Type in the following web site addresses (you can copy and paste them). Click ALLOW for each added domain:

http://lisehunt.com

http://phonogram.us

https://secure.amsnac2.com

Click OK. Then click the SETTINGS button in the Pop-up Blocker section:

Type in the following web site addresses (you can copy and paste them):

http://lisehunt.com

http://phonogram.us

https://secure.amsnac2.com

Click CLOSE and then OKAY to exit.

Norton Internet Security Firewall
Symantec's Norton Internet Security is the industry leader in being bloated, overprotective and annoying. McAfee Internet Security Suite is less annoying, but both will block many website features if they are not configured properly.

If you have Norton (NIS) installed, there should be a pull-down menu in the upper right-hand corner of your Internet Explorer Window. Click that menu and, from the list, choose the security settings for this site (Allow PopUps and so forth). If that does not help, your firewall settings are probably set very high, which will require you to configure your firewall to access this site. This is a little complicated, and we apologize for the hassle, but we're not making this stuff up:

Screenshot 1 - Norton Internet Security

8. Select each new domain you have just added

9. under "information about visited sites"

  • DE-select "use default settings"

  • click "permit"

10. Return to Step 5 and add the list of domains listed below:

http://phonogram.us

https://secure.amsnac2.com

Close Norton and delete your Temporary Internet Files (in Internet Explorer, click TOOLS and INTERNET OPTIONS and then click DELETE FILES from the Temporary Internet Files section). Close Internet Explorer then open a new Internet Explorer window and re-load the web site. That should tell Norton to stop messing with the site. MacAfee's firewall configures similarly, see your owner's manual for details.

 

graphics quality

The graphics look blurry and pixilated. What's up with that?

If you are using AOL, many of our graphics may appear blurred or pixilated. This is because AOL uses a graphics compression scheme that saves you time downloading but makes the graphics look absolutely terrible. If you are using an "optimized" or "high speed" dialup connection, most likely your "top speed" or "optimized" dialup connection achieves its speed by short-changing you on the graphics: by downloading low-resolution alternatives to our graphics.

We work very hard to create the best quality graphics we can achieve at a minimum file size for optimum downloading speed. Whether you want fast speed or better-looking graphics is ultimately your choice. To improve the quality of your visit here, you should turn compressed graphics OFF in your web browser.

america online users

I'm using AOL to view the site and the site doesn't seem to work.

This site is not compatible with AOL's built-in web browser. Their web browser looks like Microsoft Internet Explorer, but it is really a proprietary version of MSIE, designed to block and interfere with web sites AOL doesn't like. Many of our Special edition pages are designed to be viewed in Kiosk or "Full Screen: mode, and AOL's web browser does not permit that.

We STRONGLY discourage use of AOL's built-in web browser to view this web site. Instead, we encourage you to login to AOL (if that is your only internet connection) and, once you've logged on, launch Internet Explorer by clicking START and selecting INTERNET EXPLORER. Then load our web site in MSIE.

To log off, you must exit AOL.

You have to go out the way you came in. If you used AOL to connect to the Internet, you must exit AOL when you wish to disconnect. Otherwise your computer will continue to redial into AOL to attempt to re-establish your Internet connection.

This sounds more complicated than it actually is.

Why the site doesn't work with AOL:

AOL's web browser LOOKS like Microsoft Internet Explorer, but it is NOT MSIE. Microsoft and AOL had a falling out a little bit ago, and Microsoft no longer properly supports AOL's program.

AOL wants to sell you stuff. AOL wants to push stuff on you and control what you see on your computer screen. Thus, AOL will not allow you to view websites in full screen mode. Full screen mode covers AOL completely, and AOL will not allow that.

AOL uses compressed graphics by default. This doesn't allow JavaScript to work while browsing inside AOL (additionally, this makes photos you view on web pages look less than optimal).

If you are bound and determined to use AOL's crummy web browser, you could try switching the graphics to UNCOMPRESSED and dumping the browser cache.

Believe me, launching Internet Explorer is MUCH EASIER and SIMPLER and MORE EFFECTIVE. But, if you're a die-hard AOL fan, try this:

1.  Click Settings.

2.  Click Preferences.

3.  Click Internet Properties (WWW).

4.  Click Web Graphics tab.

5.  Check Never Compress Graphics.

6.  Click OK Restart the computer.

If the site STILL does not load properly, I strongly urge you to not use AOL's browser. Launch Internet Explorer as directed above.

page transitions

I Clicked A Link And Nothing Happened!
This Website Is So SLOW!

Most of the pages on this site use a transitional effect that blends the incoming page with the existing one. In order for this effect to work, your computer must draw the new page before it releases the old page. If you click a link and nothing happens, your computer is probably assembling the new page, downloading the graphics and getting the page completely drawn before it releases the page you are on.

This slowness is especially evident if you are using a dial-up modem connection. Once you have visited the site a few times, this wait will become less and less of an issue, as your Web Browser will be storing many of these images in its memory (cache).

One thing you should do, if you are using a dialup modem connection: check your connection speed. Click on the flashing dual terminal icon on the task bar and see how fast your connection is. The fastest dialup connection speed currently available is 56.6 kbs. But, just because your modem says it's 56.6kps doesn't mean you are actually getting that speed. Your actual speed is whatever your phone company lets you have. If your actual speed is 33kps or less, this site will load very slowly and likely drive you nuts.

If you have a poor connection speed, check your manuals for the manufacturer of your modem. Then visit your modem manufacturer's web site to download the latest driver for you modem. This may help increase your modem's efficiency.  BACK TO TOP

 

macintosh users

InHouse's site should work well with Safari for Macintosh OSX at a screen resolution of 1024x768 or higher. If you are using Internet Explorer for the Mac, be sure you are using Version 5.2 for OSX or 5.1.7 for OS 7, 8 and 9.x. To check your version of Internet Explorer, select "About Internet Explorer" from the Apple Menu. To upgrade your version of Internet Explorer for Macintosh, click here.

Mac System 9 users: Microsoft Internet Explorer no longer supports the Macintosh platform. As a result, Apple's Quicktime plugin may not work for Microsoft Internet Explorer for Macintosh. If you are using Macintosh System 9 or earlier, you may not be able to access this
website's multimedia features.

Mac OSX users: If InHouse's site does not load properly, behaves weirdly or draws pages in a weird way, you can tell Safari to behave like Microsoft Internet Explorer by changing your User Agent setting. Select "user agent" from the Safari "debug" menu and choose MSIE 6.0 as your user agent. Then reload InHouse's site, and the Windows version of the site should load (it will say "Optimized for Microsoft Internet Explorer" on the start page).

You can also view InHouse's site with Mozilla FireFox for Macintosh OSX or Internet Explorer on Windows XP   BACK TO TOP

 

monitor resolution

InHouse's site opens a window frame that requires your computer's monitor to be set at a minimum resolution of 1024x768 pixels. If your monitor's resolution is set lower than 1024x768, this window will not be drawn properly and you won't be able to navigate the site.

If you are not sure what size your monitor's screen is, right click on your desktop and select the "Settings" tab from the "Properties" menu.

In Macintosh OSX, select System Preferences from the Apple Menu and then choose "Displays." In Macintosh OS9, choose "Monitors and Sound" from the Control Panels beneath the Apple Menu or from the control strip at the bottom of your desktop.   BACK TO TOP

 

dialup modem users

If this is your first visit, you may notice a lot of these pages take a very long time loading. Particularly if you are using a dialup modem connection (as opposed to a cable modem or DSL, ISDN or T1 connection, as many people have at work). You do not need a high-speed connection to visit this website, but if you are using a dialup connection, you will need a little patience. This site is fairly graphics intensive, and some pages also have fairly large MP3 files that download when you access those pages for the first time. Once you've visited these pages, and patiently waited for the graphics and sound to download, your next visit should be no wait at all. Your web browser, ideally, should cache these pages and these images so, on your next visit, the page should load much faster.

Sec. 107
Limitations on exclusive rights: Fair use
 
Notwithstanding the provisions of sections 106 and 106A, the fair use of a copyrighted work, including such use by reproduction in copies or phonorecords or by any other means specified by that section, for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching (including multiple copies for classroom use), scholarship, or research, is not an infringement of copyright. In determining whether the use made of a work in any particular case is a fair use the factors to be considered shall include - 

(1) the purpose and character of the use, including whether such use is of a commercial nature or is for nonprofit educational purposes; 

(2) the nature of the copyrighted work; 

(3) the amount and substantiality of the portion used in relation to the copyrighted work as a whole; and 

(4) the effect of the use upon the potential market for or value of the copyrighted work. 

The fact that a work is unpublished shall not itself bar a finding of fair use if such finding is made upon consideration of all the above factors

5. File Sharing & Artist Rights
Get The Facts About File SharingINHOUSE.COM is serious about protecting the rights of performing artists. INHOUSE.COM does not endorse file sharing and has encrypted media clips presented here for editorial and promotional purposes to prevent them from being downloaded or off-loaded. All publishing and copyright notices have remained intact. We have used only edited samples and clips, not entire works, and have provided author and publisher information and, often, retail links to purchase sites. We derive no income from use of these clips nor from these links. We encourage our visitors to purchase this music and not to download it from online bootleg sites or copy CD's borrowed from friends. Music copying and bootlegging is a serious problem that hurts the artists who create this wonderful art and ultimately reduces our choices as consumers because revenues lost to record labels impacts their ability to sign new talent. We will never post songs in full length or in full bandwidth (uncompressed) mode, nor will we post these clips for individual downloading purposes.

INHOUSE.COM uses BMI to manage digital music rights for this site. BMI became the first music industry organization to embrace the internet as a new venue for the uses of BMI affiliated music when we signed our first internet license in 1995. Since that time BMI created innovative new ways to manage copyrights for the digital world. BMI’s innovations include The Digital Licensing Center, the first end to end automated online licensing system, and our automated music use reporting and digital fee payment systems. Today BMI serves nearly 3,700 different websites and digital music offerings using BMI affiliated music.
