Development Tools Console Foundations Getting Started with the Console Running Commands

I can't get the Treehouse Console to actually load -- it stays in its startup loop for over 15 minutes. Any suggestions?

(I'm not getting any error messages, but I've tried to load it 3-4 times now.)

Hey Paige,

You could try running it in a different browser. It should work fine in all modern browsers. If that doesn't work, try checking your network settings, perhaps there is a anti-virus program blocking your access from web apps. You could also use another another online console. There are tons out there!

Hope this helps!

Thanks so much! I'll try that. And I'm fine using my own Terminal window -- except that according to the tutorial there'll be some later stuff that uses Ubuntu linux, and I'm just on a Mac. Anyways, I'm sure I can work it out.
