Hi, Paul -

I'd be happy to try to help you.  The etoys seem to be running fine 
for me...so let's see.

Can you tell me
  -- have you downloaded Squeak itself from the Squeakland.org 
download page?  Can you tell me what version you are using and what 
platform (i.e., Win, Mac, Unix) and what browser?
You can find the Squeakland version number through the World menu, 
then choosing "help" and then "about this system".  You should be 
running Squeakland 3.8-05 and the "latest update" should read "531".

With a little more info we should be able to see what's going on.

Will you try to load the  "Face Ball" project  from this page:
http://www.squeakland.org/kids/sqfest_2004.htm (you may have to 
scroll to see it).  If successful, it should open a new browser 
window and start running.  You should then be able to click on the 
blue "ticking" clock (the clock icon, not the word "ticking") and 
stop the animation.

Sorry you've having problems...we'll sort them out,
