Table centering going awry
by Barry E Allen
I think we've been here before. Is the table centering going awry?
The outer table is centered but the inner one should not be.
Unless my HTML is going awry?
A few versions ago it was OK but in recent versions it hasn't.
The latest version I have is (03 Mar 2008 15:15) r3879

Intermittent thumbnail images in history window....
by Paul Vigay
Following a bit of discussion about this on the Archive mailing list, I've
done some more experiments here, and I'm wondering whether or not the
intermittent appearance of thumbnails is due (possibly in part) to the
fully (or not) qualified domain name in the URL.
As it very rarely works here on my Iyonix, I thought it was something to do
with not thumbnailing local sites (ie. pages on my hard drive or local
intranet). My default homepage is "http://intranet" which resolves to
"http://avalon.vigay.com/" (on my machine both names are entries in the
Hosts file pointing to a local server, so no external access is required).
I've never had thumbnails appear in the history list, even when clicking on
links on my intranet page. However, if I went directly to an external URL
(such as news.bbc.co.uk) then I'd get the thumbnails ok.
Anyway, on a whim I decided to change the homepage to
http://avalon.vigay.com (remembering that it still resolves to exactly the
same place/route) and lo-and-behold, NetSurf starts thumnailing, even the
Change back to http://intranet and it doesn't thumbnail the history. This
is 100% repeatable on this machine here, and the only difference I can spot
is the URL - the destination is exactly the same machine and page.
Not sure if this gives a clue as to the intermittent history thumbnails but
thought I'd report it here, as it's about the only consistent way of
causing the problem I can find.
Barclays online banking
by Dave Higton
I've just done an online banking session with Barclays this morning,
so I can report in a little more depth.
The very good news is that it worked; I was able to set up a payment
and to transfer money between accounts. I was able to read all the
writable fields. So thank you again for that.
The not so good news is that one of the fields that displays items
from a pull-down menu was displaying incorrectly. The case in point
is the item that shows and allows selection of the known payees from
previous occasions. I have three. The box was three text lines high.
I had previously assumed that it was just wrapping the text from the
selected item, but in fact it was displaying text from more than one
of the items. I have just gone back to Oregano 2 to check; O2 shows
just one line. When I pulled the items down, the correct one was
selected, so it all worked OK, it just had a confusing display.
Unfortunately you need to have logged in to be able to see this.
Improbable colour scheme
by Harriet Bazley
Why does this page - http://www.shebloggedbynight.com - and other blogs
I've encountered - appear to sport a dark-grey and black colour scheme?
And is there any way of forcing NetSurf to ignore CSS colour schemes
when they result in unreadable displays such as these?

Re: [LE8MW] Where have I gone
Hi James, any news on the fix, or am I the only one having this strange
On Another matter, I have a business colleague who is currently on BT for
his business broadband, and unfortunately, for some reason over the past
6 or so months he has had trouble with the service, primarily dropping to
downlink 128kb/s from normally almost 7Mb/s, this plays havoc with is
VOIP phones of course which quite often carries 3 or 4 calls.
The long and the short of it, is that while BT have endeavoured to find
the fault, and the engineer does put it down to a line fault, but to
prevent the system backing off to 128kb/s they capped his download to
around 4Mb/s which seems to have at least cured the backing off.
My colleague is fed up with the procedure of getting the fault sorted, so
hes had a second telephone line installed which he would like his
business broadband to be provide by AAISP on a separate account to his BT
one and eventually migrate his office systems across to the AAISP line
and then terminate his BT account when all is working ok.
At the moment, he has the standard dynamic single IP address from BT into
a NAT router, and I've suggested to him that he should ask you for a
block of say 24 IP addresses and we'll assign one within his router to
his local DHCP addresses to get him going as is.
In the first instance does he contact your sales via the sign up on your
web pages though I cannot see anywhere that specifies the number of IP
Is there anyway he can find out his average daily use via BT by the way?
