That works here, but I have seen the effect you describe a few times when I
mis-typed a post code. Maybe there is a validation check problem

The page that comes back is not rendered but shown in Netsurf as plain

Can anyone else repeat this or is in something odd here?

Unfortunately I'm not sure of the correct terminology - but I've noticed
on a number of occasions during the last few weeks (sorry, can't be more
precise) that recent versions of Netsurf have started to single-task for
extended periods during download of pages. I've a feeling that this
may be connected to the change that causes the loading time of the page
to chug past very fast in tenths of a second, which I'm sure old
versions didn't have... but today I noticed (after submitting a bug
report for a specific instance) that the actual desktop freeze-ups seem
to be related to cases where a second set of loading times is displayed
on the bar at the bottom of the page, to the right of the main one.
Can anyone suggest the correct terminology so that I can make a coherent
bug report? ;-)
Many are called, few are chosen. Fewer still get to do the choosing.
For some reason I cannot make any Paypal payments using Netsurf,
previously it worked using the "Items Won" link from the Paypal
account. This link has since disappeared and now I am unable to use
Paypal with Netsurf as when you click on the "Pay Now" button it
doesn't work, just returns to the same page.
Has anyone successfully made payments with Netsurf on RISC OS ? it
used to work before, about a year ago but then stopped working.
The release of V1.0 of Netsurf is very much appreciated by all RISC OS
users i'm sure who are grateful for all the hard work put into
developing this program.
Also i've noticed there are test builds which are dated after V1.0 are
these any better than V1.0 - which is the best version to use ?

This release is the result of over 5 years of development by 22 developers and
contributors. Thanks also to our testers and bug reporters.
NetSurf's user interface is available in English, Dutch, French, and German.
This is just a quick email to tell everyone about how the sale of
NetSurf 1.0 CDs went at the Wakefield show.
We offered CDs of NetSurf 1.0 along with all the resources required to
run NetSurf, everything required to build it, and some specially created
backgrounds. We requested five pounds for each CD, but some kind people
were happy to pay a little more and indeed insisted we kept the change.
We managed to make and sell 95 individually numbered CDs of 1.0, and one
kind soul went and bought himself a blank CD when we had run out and we
burned that for him also.
As such, I have currently got quite a bit of cash in a cashbox which has
been locked and marked for official NetSurf disbursements such as the
domain registration, bandwidth and hosting costs, travel to shows and
show-stand rental, etc.
A basic explanation of the funds received and disbursements made is made
below, more outgoings will be dealt with later (after discussion with
the NetSurf development team in general).
Finally I'd like to thank Michael Drake for his work on the fantastic
NetSurf banner which made quite an impact at the show, the CD resources,
and indeed for turning up and helping us to make a good impression on
the community in general. This banner is now with John-Mark Bell who
will take it to the show in Guildford. I need to thank John-Mark for
being there and fielding the harder questions for me, especially about
the future development plans for NetSurf.
I hope to see you all at the next show, and hopefully we'll have another
great release for you by then.
CDs made and sold: 95
CDs burned specially: 1
Total income, including donations, overpayment etc: £510
Outgoings made thus far:
Photocopier and refreshment at the show: £2
Michael Drake's train fare: £22
A pair of rounds at the pub afterwards while discussing future plans
with some community members: £24.10
Current "pot" is therefore at £461.90
There are the following as yet fully calculated outgoings to cover:
1. John-Mark Bell's Mileage to/from the show
2. My mileage to/from the show
3. The banner printing and shipping. (We may get the printing for free)
4. The blank CDs
5. The show stand rental (£16, reduced rate, thank you Chris)
As such, I propose to set up a NetSurf bank account (probably simply a
standard account attached to my own for now) and then I can make
bank-transfer fund disbursement as needed. If everyone is okay with
that, I'll do it at some point next week. Obviously I'd continue to
produce public reports and probably set up a GNUCash or similar which
can go into the NetSurf SVN.

Thanks to everybody who game to visit us on the NetSurf stand and made
known your support for the project, and those of you that supported us
by buying NetSurf 1.0 release CDs - running the project costs its
contributors significantly not only in time but also in money out of our
I burnt 20 discs the night before, expecting that to be sufficient - we
managed to sell these in the first hour and a half!
Fortunately, we bought a large box of blanks with us, and were burning
them at the stand - in total, we sold 95 "real" ones - one chap was so
eager to get one, they went to CJE Micro's stand and bought a blank for
us to burn for them.
Thanks are also due to Advantage Six Ltd. for the 3G internet access
they provided to us so we could demonstrate real sites etc, and the the
loan of the A9Home, and Rascal Print Ltd. for the much-reduced cost of
the larger banner we had printed which appeared to get a lot of attention.
A few people had issues with NetSurf that we couldn't easily investigate
on the stand, and we have asked them to email us here on the mailing
list - if so, we look forward to your bug reports!
Daniel Silverstone will be making a posting to the developer's mailing
list in the next day or two with accounting information of money raised,
and how it's been spent so far, as well as details of what we discussed
for future versions after the show. This will most likely only be of
interest to the developers.
Thanks again for everybody who dropped by our stand!
