Hi, I'm running a Mac PPC G5 OS 10.5.8. I have VARPC for Mac running ROS 4.39.
To connect I have to use NetSurf 2.9. I can't pinpoint when Test Builds stopped
accessing the Internet but I have been trying the latest builds on and off for over a year
without success. I also have two Risc PCs one running ROS 4.02 and the other 3.7.
No problem running the latest NetSurf on these.

It would be great to get NetSurf working on VA. I believe Graham Barnes wrote the
Resolver module for VA. Would he be available to help?

I can say that nothing has changed that I am aware of regarding the Mac, so NetSurf
going from working to not working must relate to a change in NetSurf.

I don't know much about programming but if I can help with testing in any way, I'd be happy to help.

Regard, Alan
