It wasn't so much a slideshow for r rme as a "click on the picture and read the explanation." Slideshow is misleading. Slideshow, to me, means, click one button and sit back and enjoy the show.

That's more than I can get!  It asks me if I want to open or save the file, and whichever I try, I get:

"Internet Explorer cannot download willies4.swf from www.u2.com.
Internet Explorer was not able to open this Internet site. The requested site is either unavailable or cannot be found. Please try again later."

It was doing that yesterday and it's still doing it now. :/

Wow, I had to pay $40! Man, I guess they upped the prices closer to touring perhaps.

$40 US, 20 pounds...or discount for propaganda members perhaps.

I've seen lots of people on the U2.com boards complain about this show not working...and the lyrics page is out too.

Anyone here have connections to people on the site? I hate to see such obvious problems not getting fixed!

That should have been £20. But it would have been cheaper had I used my prop code. Instead I got a prop refund, long story.

If you had a prop membership it would have only cost you $20.

I don't know what the deal with U2.com is. WHen I first joined everything worked great, but lately I can't even get the lyrics section to load.

I hadn't even noticed the lyrics section was down, as the lyrics on the official site are so inaccurate / incomplete that I never bother using them!  Fansites often get lyrics wrong as well, but on the whole they do a far better job than U2.com. Crazy - you'd think the official site would be a more reliable source of information.

But I do have Flash... at least, plenty of other Flash sites work for me, including things with the explicit SWF extension...
