Anyone else's workspace not loading?
I tried it in Chrome and Microsoft Edge. I also cleared browser history and tried to launch it but I get nothing. It just keeps loading.

I took a break and came back a few hours later. It appears to be working again. Thanks!
Hi, Nichelle Segar!
Sorry to hear this is happening for you! You mentioned that you cleared the browsing history, have you tried clearing the browsing cache?
If you don't know how, here is a resource to show you from Digitial Trends: https://www.digitaltrends.com/computing/how-to-clear-your-browser-cache/
Or else, maybe a moderator can help if that doesn't work! Let me know how that goes.

I think Alexander's link is a helpful resource. I was clearing browser history from Chrome earlier today and the amount of settings and screens you can click is about the size of a Web Application in itself.
Best to do it regularly for all the browsers you have, then it'll all become second nature. :-)
In the meantime, if it keeps happening, I'm sure Treehouse support will have the answers (beyond, try again in a few minutes) as to the status of Workspaces. You can click "support" or email direct at email@example.com

Let us know if you're still having trouble with this and fire us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Usually, when this occurs, there's simply a communication error happening that resolves itself fairly quickly. Other times, we've seen things like user error where broken or looped code has been supplied into the workspace which is causing the problem.

Doesn't work from the very beginning. What's the problem?
treehouse:~/workspace$ javac Introductions
Picked up JAVA_TOOL_OPTIONS: -Xmx128m
Picked up _JAVA_OPTIONS: -Xmx128m

For others who run into the issue where the Workspace doesn't load, try pressing Command+R or Ctrl+R twice rapidly. So refresh the page, but refresh it again immediately, as in just click both buttons twice very fast.
To be clear, do this on the Workspace window, not the Video window.
For whatever reason, that seems to do the trick - for me anyways. This may help you avoid constantly having to clear your cache/cookies.
